To be honest, I'm basically looking for someone I can sing and dance like an idiot to '90s music with.
I think the people you're with matter more than where you are.
Friends and family are more important to me than work. I just never want to be the dad who misses a dance recital because of a business trip.
I think RuPaul's Drag Race is the best show on TV.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting my PhD in communication at UCSB, teaching public speaking at SBCC, and working at a hotel. I'm pretty busy.
I’m really good at
Knowing all of the words to songs.
Pop culture trivia.
Settlers of Catan.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look a lot like Mac from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I just read Gone Girl and it was phenomenal. I also love East of Eden, High Fidelity, the Harry Potter books (Goblet of Fire is my favorite; that's when shit gets real), and the Song of Ice and Fire series.
Movies: Nightmare Before Christmas, Toy Story 3, A Goofy Movie, Children of Men, Moulin Rouge, Lawrence of Arabia, Brick, Trainspotting, Fargo, Casablanca, Drive
Shows: Hannibal, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Parks and Rec, Community, Breaking Bad, the West Wing, Arrested Development, Friday Night Lights, Louie, Game of Thrones
Music: I love generic 90s music (like Third Eye Blind, Sister Hazel, Counting Crows, and Alannis Morisette), Paul Simon, Sufjan Stevens, Regina Spektor, Why?, Aesop Rock, Led Zeppelin, Talking Heads, Yeasayer
Food: I love Indian food (naan is the best!), lasagna, a good salad (my favorite is spinach, apple, blueberry, and dried cranberry), and peanut butter and banana sandwiches on toast with a honey drizzle.
The six things I could never do without
1. Family and friends
2. Good books
3. The occasional spontaneous trip
4. Witty banter
5. Settlers of Catan
6. Time to relax
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How "honey drizzle" is the best 2-word combo in the English language.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out with friends, or staying in and watching a movie/playing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm only here because I got kicked off ExcellentCupid and
Also, I cry every time I watch the Land Before Time. And I think
it's weird if you don't.
You should message me if
You think I'm your type, you think we'd have fun together, or you'd like to know more about me. If you're secretly a 50-year-old, just realize it's going to be awkward when we meet up for drinks.
