What I’m doing with my life
Director of Digital Strategy at a national nonprofit

TEDxMtHood

World Domination Summit

Design Week Portland

So. Much. Consulting.

Hiring a personal assistant to hire a personal assistant.

Stage managing, running a workshop and still so much consulting.

Planning my upcoming trips to Thailand and Buenos Aires so I can post OKC photos surrounded by brown kids.
I’m really good at
...making morning/afternoon/evening coffee.
...making the best grilled cheese ever. Fuck you Grilled Cheese Grill.
...making tomato soup. From scratch.
...making red sauce.
...making chocolate chip cookies.
...pretty much cooking in general.
...reading people. And books.
...delivering a monologue, especially when it concerns you and why you think you can't do something, and why I know you can and should.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been voted most eligible bachelor at work. So there's that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: If you like Blink, Outliers and The Tipping Point, I'm pretty sure that we'll get along.

Shows: GoT, The League, The Office, Modern Family, Law and Order: SVU, Lie to Me, Skins (UK), Battlestar Galactica, Parks and Rec, Archer, House of Cards, HIMYM, Workaholics

Music: Bluegrass. Grimes. Biggie. Really, I like all genres of music, without delving too deep in to any one thing. Recently very in to 90's hip hop on Pandora.

Food: Pambiche, Smallwares, Screen Door, Toro Bravo, cheap burrito joints, ramen
The six things I could never do without
My espresso machine
Baby goats
Wrath of the Khans podcast
Pens that write left handed
Rain
Phone (sum of human knowledge in the palm of your hand anyone?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...which one you are in your group photo. I can basically never tell.

...if I will ever be able to keep my eyes open when smiling. My guess? No.

...why do some people have such strange eyebrows?

...what does 'down to Earth' mean?

...how can I split test my OKC profile?
On a typical Friday night I am
Being ridiculous and having a great time doing so. Also, trying to hail a cab and generally not die.

Update: now have Uber. No cab hailing needed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I boycott Chris Brown.

My latest adventure: MC for a fundraiser -- goal was 15k, raised over 45k. Ended up jumping in a pool in my boxer briefs. This is my life.
You should message me if
...you will stay up with me into the wee hours of the morning, or at least don't mind that I do.
...you are sassy and snarky and will give me a hard time. Wit is not lost on me.
...you are emotionally available. Full stop.
...you are in need of a +1 to a wedding*. I will suit up and dance with you. I will dance with grandmothers. I will dance with little girls and put them on my feet. (*Open bar required)

...you own, or have access to, goats.

...you like wild hair.
