My self-summary
i was born in delaware (what could be more exciting than that?) but now i'm a permanent californian. i'd say that i'm eclectic, in that i incorporate various elements of hippy, hipster, and nerd culture, with a dash of semi-ironic hip hop slang.

i would say that i love music, but i don't think 'love' does it justice. it's more of an all-consuming obsession. i also love books, comedy, art, dancing, and consciousness expansion.

i just got an adorable baby kitty named Billy Dee Williams.

I am fun-loving, intelligent, and creative
What I’m doing with my life
my dream is to be a professional musician, so i spend A LOT of time playing music and writing song lyrics.

i also work at a company that licenses music for films, tv, videogames, etc.
I’m really good at
singing and banjo playing. i can play lots of other instruments to varying degrees, but banjo get the most love.

i can do some decent impressions, including some family guy characters and easy celebrities (de niro, jimmy stewart, connery, etc). also i can impersonate a few musicians in song (bob dylan, neil young, bowie, stevie wonder, john lennon/liam gallagher, etc.)

also i can quote the hell out of the simpsons, monty python, anchorman, etc. (this is a mixed blessing)

i'd say i'm a good natural dancer (i certainly exceed in enthusiasm). i just started taking swing dancing lessons, and i should be kicking ass by december.

also, reading while walking.
The first things people usually notice about me
probably my red hair (no discrimination please)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
muppets (i wish they were real, and i was friends with them)
the simpsons (there's a relevant quote for pretty much every conceivable event).
art in many mediums and the relative merit thereof.
On a typical Friday night I am
lately i've been loving upright citizens brigade theatre and the silent movie theatre. otherwise, probably a bar or a show.
