My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, first of all, I'm a recovering native Austinite, and I've gotten past wishing you'd all leave. I just occasionally yell things about Mopac or this or that restaurant. It's quite infrequent, and I like to think that it's more charming than anything else.

I've lived in London, Paris, and Chicago, but I always seem to make my way back here. I je t'aimed paris and all, but I had to quit playing the rock and roll music and go to school. Chicago wind is like a thousand vampires (not the Twilight-y kind) eating your soul. London had British people.

I love doing any and everything in this city: the theater, opera, running, swimming, water sports, seeing shows, playing bocce, wiping dog poop off the bocce ball that had a little too much "oomph" behind it (wait, that's for the next paragraph where I just rant about crap I don't like).

On that note (the austin one, not the poop one), I really like sneaking out of Austin and finding things to do in all the amazing little towns that surround us. In case you're not in the know, Texas is amazing; you should certainly leave the city every now and again (and no, it's not a trick to get all of you new people out of the city).

If you're really itching to find something to talk to me about, I have seven sisters. Wrap your mind around that. We do a little Von Trapp thing where we all come out before bedtime and sing little bits about how we don't want to go to bed. I totally come out in little footy pajamas and say something like, "I'm sweeeepy!" which was effin' adorable until the age of about 20.

Sometimes, people learn my last name and then they say, "wait, are you gay?" Why, yes. My last name is so mighty in its suggestive powers that it has been converting otherwise straight people for centuries. 87% of the living gay people were the direct result of my family's strange name choice.

I just realized that this collection of words is known as "My Self-Summary." Yup, that's me in a nutshell. Nice.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do two things: I'm a Creative Director at a design firm and an artist. What does a Creative Director do? Well, I have a few responsibilities. A big one is tricking whiny designers into doing stuff that isn't weird or crappy. I have the creative vision of my company in my hands! I get to say, "Oh, yeah. Really great typography on this project; one thing though... and I totally get your vision, but what does this photo of a tall building have to do with the Life Settlements industry?" Let's not talk about work.

Aaaaaaand the artist thing. I do electronic music/live video performance art. Not the smear blood on your face while you read the Koran performance art, fyi. I'm not going to try to explain it here; I'm happy to talk to you about it, show it to you.

I'm traveling a lot these days as well. For a while I just had that previous sentence, and people were understandably all, "Dub Tee Eff, Keith?! [ed. note: no one has ever said this; I don't know what's wrong with me] Where have you gone?" Good question, fictional person. Well, recently I've been to Chicago, San Francisco, Mississippi, and Thailand. I rode an elephant for many hours, and he was a little fatty boomba who yelled at me too much.

Really, it's all about hanging with friends and being in the sun these days. I have a swimsuit in my trunk always [ed. note: this is a dirty lie, yet again. Summer's over. It's fall now; there's probably a rotting pumpkin in my trunk now or something, possibly a cornucopia].
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people smile. Cooking, too. Shaking it without breaking it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, or they could be thinking, "wow, that's one fly ass guy." I have no idea. I don't ask.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Well, avoiding all the stuff that MOST young folks in Austin like...

Books: Cradle to Cradle; First as Tragedy, Then as Farce; Franny and Zooey

Movies: Drop Dead Gorgeous; Synecdoche, New York; Irréversible; Amores Perros; So I Married An Axe Murderer; Hell Comes to Frogtown

Music: Jeff Buckley; Erasure; Bloc Party; Bowerbirds; Julie Doiron; Cee-lo; Chromeo; Scandal; Autolux; Elvis Perkins; Otis Redding; Anthony Hamilton; Local Natives to name a few.

Food: yes, please
My family is Sicilian, and I've always had an interest in learning my family's recipes. There is so much wonderful Sicilian food that people never get a chance to try; it makes me so happy to be able to make it and carry on these recipes. Recently, I've even been wanting to learn more from my grandmother and others about nutrition, preparation, preservation, and seasonal adjustments to all of this... there are some healthy folks in my family. Well, the women... the guys kind of die hard.

This isn't all of it. I like ALL kinds (and I actually mean all) of movies, music, food, books, etc. We can go. I'll give you a run for your money, sucka.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Smiths
Smiling (smirking, at least)
Friends and family
Texas (at least visiting)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why I'm on this site...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm out; I know that. I usually get home and am all, "bleh, bleh, bleh, I don't what I'm going to do tonight; maybe I'll just take it easy" and that turns in a wild dancepartymeetupwithrandompeoplearoundtown kind of outing.

Or I read a little. Drink some tea. Gotta rest sometime.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I passionately defend the artistic merit of R Kelly and Jojo. They *may* be two of the greatest artists of our time. And it says a lot about you if you dismiss them outright...

(I do defend good music too)

Also, I sometimes look at pictures of Beagle puppies online... [ed. note: while listening to All 4 One]
