My self-summary
I do...stuff? I dunno, I mostly just work at Starbucks and try to fill the rest of my time with whatever sounds fun.
What I’m doing with my life
When I'm not working or out with friends, I like to play pretentious indie video games and I like to work on making electronic music. I'm decent at the games, okay-ish at the music (shut up, equalization is hard).
I’m really good at
Drinking an entire pot of coffee to myself, having conversations with marginally internet-famous people on Twitter, beating the same video game over and over again, making the best spaghetti that has ever happened to mankind, and spending two hours fucking around with the same kick drum sample until I lose my mind.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look like Jesus. Well, according to every drunk person I've ever met, at least.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I haven't read anything super memorable since the Lord of the Rings trilogy (plus The Hobbit).

Movies - I have a hard time sitting through movies a lot of the time. Though I love Tarantino movies and have probably seen Pulp Fiction enough times to quote the entire script verbatim (except I won't because people that do that are usually assholes).

Shows - I barely even watch TV anymore. Most of my entertainment comes from YouTube anymore. The few things I watch regularly are The Venture Bros (when they actually fucking make new episodes), Archer (when I remember to watch it), Bob's Burgers (I really like Jon Benjamin, I'm now realizing), and @midnight (because the internet is funny).

Music - I mostly listen to house music, but I also really like a lot of metal/hardcore and folksy indie stuff. My favorite producers are deadmau5, Knife Party, and Pegboard Nerds; my favorite bands are Every Time I Die, Coheed and Cambria, and Mastodon; and my favorite solo musician is Regina Spektor.

Food - I could eat curry for every meal for the rest of time until cosmic entropy takes the sun and be perfectly content. I also make a pretty decent red curry on my own.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee - Thanks, universe, for letting me work full time at a coffee shop. The functionally infinite supply of free coffee I get is the only thing standing between me and murdering every customer that dares cross my path.

Internet - It's where most of my entertainment comes from.

Friends - I have very good ones. They're always rad. We party.

Money - I have bills, assorted responsibilities, and a few costly vices.

Coffee again - Seriously...I will fight a motherfucker...

Cigarettes - Yeah, I know, it's gross.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Space. No, really, space is super fucking cool. Anyone who can say they have a favorite astrophysicist is a friend of mine (and let's be honest, we're all going to say it's Neil DeGrasse Tyson).
On a typical Friday night I am
My schedule is super inconsistent. I'm probably either going to be working until close, and then hitting the usual bar with my friends to bitch about my awful customers; or I'll have the night off, and head to the bar to bitch about something else with the crew.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I make electronic music from my couch, that should be sufficiently embarrassing, right?
You should message me if
You, uh, feel like it? I dunno, I'm not here to tell people what to do.
