I'm a small town Upper-Midwestern (Michigan to be exact) boy that
has been in Philly for the last 8 years and have adopted it as my
home. I like to go out and paint the town any number of
coordinating colors, but I'm just as happy sitting in with one or
two people whose company I enjoy. I have a healthy unhealthy
obsession with cycling, but I'm not a health nut in general.
Spending time outdoors in any capacity is my favorite pastime, be
it camping, sitting in a park, hiking, or walking around the city.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it/enjoying it. More practically speaking, I work a full
time job that I don't dislike, but that I see mostly as a means to
an end. I'm just completed my degree in social work right. Now, in
my fervent pursuit of a life of poverty, I'm out there trying to be
employed in the field.
I’m really good at
Procrastination, building campfires, making tacos, providing a
Simpson's quote for any occasion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: 1984, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Catcher in the Rye,
Lord of the Rings, Name of the Wind/Wise Man's Fear, Song of Ice
TV/Movies: The Simpsons, The Wire, Breaking Bad, The Goonies, The
Princess Bride, Lord of the Rings, Everything is Illuminated, The
Big Lebowski, Taxi Driver, Harvey, Mr. Smith Goes to
Music: The Raconteurs, John Prine, The Hold Steady, The White
Stripes, Lupe Fiasco, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, The Cool
Kids, and classic rock, but it has to be in the summer, in a car,
with all the windows rolled down.
Food: All Mexican food, Indian, Ethiopian, Italian, Thai, and just
about anything else that works its way in front of me.
The six things I could never do without
My bike(s), my friends, my family, good food/beer, music, 72 degree
On a typical Friday night I am
Out drinking with a couple of friends, watching a movie, doing
homework, going to bed so I can get up early for a long Saturday
bike ride, reveling in my lack of responsibilities for the next 2
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
While this isn't exactly private once you meet me, I had bone
cancer as a child and, as a result, I still have two legs, with the
caveat being that one of them spends the evenings leaning up
against my bedroom wall.
You should message me if
You're open minded, you like to talk, you're interesting, you think
I might be interesting, you want to go have some food and/or drinks
with someone new.
