My self-summary
I've recently come to accept the fact that I am one of the world's most brightly dressed, hipster-y goths.

I've been in Los Angeles for a year now, following dreams of celluloid in a long strange road trip that took me from New Orleans, through San Antonio, up through Boston, and finally across this huge, great country to here. It was less a straight-forward dragon-slaying quest and a bit more like a Supernatural-style monster-hunting road trip.

It's intimidating being among so many aspirants. But kind of exciting as well.

Oh, and in case you were curious, an Underwood Five is an old-school style of typewriter. I like typewriters, although I would never use one to write.
What I’m doing with my life
I write. Film, television, it doesn't matter, I just have stories and I want to tell them. I've actually been thinking about writing prose again. The only thing stopping me was "lack of time" and then I realized that was a silly excuse. One does not have time, one makes time.

On the weekends, I seek adventures, fight crime, and defend the world against the unspeakable horrors that slither in between the dark places of the world.

In my mind.
I’m really good at
Cooking up a fine meal for fine folks (in particular, I make better gumbo that you will find anywhere else in the city, I guarantee) .

Poking at tech stuff. I'm the only creative from a family of scientists and engineers, they were eventually going to rub off on me.

I fancy myself a pretty good storyteller (I have to, or I wouldn't have gotten up the gumption to move out here).
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. If I'm wearing one, the fact that I'm wearing a bow-tie. (Bow-ties may be cool, but they've been cooler since long before Doctor Who discovered them).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Love to read. Making it a big priority this year, both because I can let it slide and because I looked at my stack of unread books and e-books and felt a sense of dread slip up my spine. Right now I'm reading Altered Carbon, Sci-fi cyberpunk noir my writing partner gave me. Super cool. Yourself?

Movies: Oy. Um, yes? My tastes are a little more varied in this case, from Disney to Tarantino to Star Wars and back again. I have a special love in my heart for midnight horror movies and anything that could play on Turner Classic Movies. My favorite movie of all time is Ghostbusters, though. That's pretty much a constant.

Shows: How does anyone keep up with all the great TV these days? I rely on Hulu and a staggered watching schedule. Arrow, Brooklyn 99, and Sleepy Hollow are priorities, though. At least until Game of Thrones. I'm just as prone to TV binging as the next man or woman with Netflix. I mean, Star Trek the Original Series is RIGHT there, and you can skip all the bad ones!

Music: My music tastes are wide, varied, and weird. Jazz, country, electronic, pop, indie. I'm even having my eyes opened to hip-hop. Well, Macklemore.

Games: Mass Effect, Earthbound, Bioshock, Harvest Moon, Final Fantasy 4-10. The Room. I'm a sucker for a good story honestly. I've even played Silent Hill alone at night with the lights off. How's that for impressive?

Food: The best food is food shared with others.

I'm Southern, give me a break. We think all problems can be solved by feeding someone.
The six things I could never do without
1. Cooking. I grew up in New Orleans. It's meditative for me.

2. Coffee shops and public libraries. Have you ever seriously tried working from home? I don't know how people do it.

3. Movie theaters. I know that streaming is the way of the future and Lord knows I welcome the future, but it'll never replace a bucket full of popcorn and a dark theater.

4. Books. Electronic and dead tree, they both have their merits.

5. Green space. It's good for the soul to take a walk in nature every now and then.

6. Science! Despite being the liberal arts major black sheep of my family, I do keep up on the science and tech news.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future and progress. Morbid death-y things. I'm kind of a contradiction in terms when I daydream.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the movie theater. Big blockbuster showing, double-feature at the New Bev. As much as I'm all "the future of everything is delivered streaming", I also love a tub of real butter popcorn and a cult horror movie in a darkened theater.

Or maybe I'm circling a group of friends to go try some new restaurant or an old favorite. This city is such a crossroads, I've never seen so many different world cuisines gathered in one place.

Of course sometimes I just stay in with take-out and Netflix or leftovers and Gamefly. Man cannot live on going out alone.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A side effect of having very eclectic music tastes, especially growing up, is that I have purchased things that, in retrospect, I'm a little ashamed of.

Like a Creed CD.
