My self-summary
This is probably my favorite joke ever:
Two cupcakes are in an oven, one cupcake turns to the other and says "Wow, It's hot in here!"
The other cupcake shouts, "Holy Crap! A talking cupcake!"

I enjoy ridiculous things. Eating, drinking, and being merry are pretty awesome too.

Been in Austin about three years now and this town just keeps getting better and better.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on my PhD in geology at UT.
Basically, I study pretty rocks in pretty locales.
I’m really good at
Cooking. And I'm always looking for excuses to test my skills.
Holding doors for people.
Almost finishing books, then remembering to finish them months later.
Adaptability, man, that's me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Beard...or if I shaved, it would be lack of beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Cormac McCarthy, Phillip K Dick, George RR Martin, Kurt Vonnegut, Gene Wolfe, Thomas Pynchon

Stanley Kubrick Movies, ridiculous B Movies, Coen Brothers,...(it's a really long list)

I'm currently watching the Wire, Parks & Rec, Always Sunny, Game of Thrones, etc

Nick Cave and Tom Waits are a couple personal heroes of mine. Can, The National, Radiohead, Secret Chiefs, Swans, Wu-Tang, Dirty Three, Bruce Springsteen, etc, etc
The six things I could never do without
Coffee
Coffee
Running
Music
BOOKS
Coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Backpacking trips
Road trips

Just travel in general, honestly
On a typical Friday night I am
Having drinks with friends somewhere, or watching something and having drinks with friends...
...so I guess the formula is me+drinks+friends+? = Friday night
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A major goal in my life is to be an old man with no shortage of random stories.
You should message me if
If you like.
