My self-summary
I was born in Nebraska and raised in Iowa, which means that I'll always call soda "pop." Don't try to change me, baby.

I work as a closed captioner in Burbank - it's fun work and a great 9-to-5. Gives me time to focus on writing, which is my real passion (it's why I moved to LA, won some awards). I play drums in a rock band called Brother Sam [ed. - The band died in July, but its spirit lives on, shiny and chrome.]

I bake the hell out of a pie: apple, blueberry/strawberry, lemon meringue, pumpkin. Cookies too. Enjoy finding 2-3 hour hikes around the Valley. Not big on sports, but I can enjoy a game if someone tells me who to root for.

On the lookout for a fellow nerd who's funny and pretty.
What I’m doing with my life
Pretty much what I said above.
I’m really good at
Writing, playing drums, overthinking things, baking, finding inner peace by looking at the night sky.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, my sense of humor, my kindness, my flawless sense of rhythm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Slaughterhouse Five, The Razor's Edge, The Stand, Paradise Lost, Lord of the Flies, Childhood's End, anything Jack London, Calvin and Hobbes (that counts, right?)

Rear Window, Goodfellas, Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight, Dawn of the Dead, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, any and every Coen Brothers movie, any and every Billy Wilder movie - I've historically loved scary movies, but that's waned a bit in the past couple years.

Arrested Development, The Wire, The X-Files, Breaking Bad, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Carnivale, True Detective, Community, Parks and Recreation

TV on the Radio, Nine Inch Nails, The Who, Sam Cooke, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen, Arcade Fire, Awolnation, Vampire Weekend, Fitz and the Tantrums (their first album), Motown and classical

Italian, Chinese, Sunday breakfasts, pie > cake
The six things I could never do without
Vowels.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
dinosaurs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Grabbing a drink with friends, staying in with a movie, or writing late at the coffee shop.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Agent Dana Scully from "The X-Files" is my hero.
You should message me if
you think we'd be a good match, or if you're just looking to meet someone new.

Sidebar: ladies, I've read some of those sites where women describe their messages from men online. And, my God, you have my sympathy.
