I'm equal parts stark realist and blind optimist. I'm hopelessly
hopeful, to put it in better terms than I could muster. Every day I
do my best to figure out my tiny little sliver of the world, and
always end up with more questions than answers. And I'm totally
cool with that.
What I’m doing with my life
Part owner of my own business, which keeps me pretty busy. Aside
from that I enjoy learning, travelling, eating good food, drinking
good beer, and singing Gin Blossoms songs at karaoke.
I’m really good at
Judging a book by it's cover. (I know you're not supposed to do
that, but it's a skill), Parallel parking, Not remembering the
lines to songs at very key moments, Making babies laugh, Pouring a
perfect pint of beer, Picking out a good mango, Quoting lines from
Seinfeld, Ordering things I already own off of the internet when
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: The Weakerthans, The Replacements, Dylan, Van Morrison, Neil
Young, Drive by Truckers, Gaslight Anthem, Pearl Jam, Smashing
Food: Total snobbery on this front... Tacos from Las Palmas,
Mediterranean Food from Kabob G Grille, Wings from Sidelines, Pizza
from Slice/Fioris/Il Pizzialo, Indian food from Namaste, and a good
Pastrami sandwich from Katz Delicatessen.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
- Good Beer
- My Guitar
- Road Trips
- A Car
- Frank's Red Hot
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Am I creating more than I consume?
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a beer. Whether it be at a bar, at a show, in my apartment,
or at work. Beer on Friday is sacred.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Every time I get into a car, a small part of me wants to just start
driving and not come back.
You should message me if
- You want to do a taco tour of Pittsburgh
- There's a tiny part of you that wants to hop on a freight train
with a napsack on a stick
- You are into urban exploring
- You think Bourbon is heavenly
- You want to go see live Jazz
- You want to go and drink good beers and talk about how horribly
fantastic the world is
