Well, I'm a writer and a musician. I try to do too many things at
once, like trying to write a novel, sell a screenplay (any
offers?), make a video game (don't ask), and form a band...all on
top of work.
I've found that I tend to nod "hello" at dogs more often than I nod
"hello" at people on the street.
Whenever I meet someone new, I immediately test whether or not
their visual acuity is based on movement. I stand completely still,
don't make a sound and they always end up walking away, looking
confused. I think that proves my point.
I'm currently a smoker, but I'm trying to quit. In fact, I'm pretty
good at quitting smoking...I've done it dozens of times now.
Oh, I ride a bike, just about everywhere weather permitting. I
don't even own a car right now so if that's a deal breaker
Right now, I'm just as open to meeting new friends as I am trying
to date. If you like good beer, that's a plus. If you like nerdy
things (video games, board games, comic book stores, museums,
galleries) then that's a huge plus. If you're a warm person with a
good sense of humor, then...you're like a god-damn unicorn or
I PROMISE that I won't send you pictures of my dick.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a copywriter at an ad agency. Basically, I play around with
words all day and it's given me an almost superhuman ability to
create corny pun. My hope is to one day become a novelist.
Most days, I'm just hanging on til the singularity hits. Kurzweil
has it pegged.
I’m really good at
Music and writing (Id like to think). I've got a pretty sharp wit
and I'm a good storyteller, conversationalist, and entertainer in
general. I'm also a good cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
My unique ability to make awkward situations even worse for my own
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything Vonnegut, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, This
Band Could Be Your Life, The Hobbit, Watership Down, Perks of Being
a Wallflower, The Master and Margarita, On the Road, The Great
Divorce. A little bit of Lovecraft here and there is a good thing
too, spiked with some Neil Gaiman. Lately, I've been reading books
on marketing for work, but they're not nearly as interesting to
talk about at a dinner party.
Movies: Indiana Jones, Road to Perdition, Unbreakable, Willow, Star
Wars, True Romance, The Big Lebowski, the list goes on.
TV: I don't watch much, but Firefly is the greatest show ever
created and Game of Thrones is phenomenal.
Music: The Pixies, Pavement, Hum, US Maple, Pinback, Dinosaur Jr,
Ty Segall, Tom Waits, Beastie Boys, Nirvana, Fugazi, Guided by
Voices, The Kinks, Minutemen, Sebadoh, Modest Mouse, Nobunny,
Polvo, Jon Spencer, Japandroids, No Age...its another big list, but
if it's a little dirty and noisy then I'll probably like it.
Food: I'm about the least picky eater you'll ever meet, or meat,
depending on how you look at it. In general, I try to eat pretty
The six things I could never do without
My guitars, fiction, pen & notebook, seafood, adventure and the
painting of me as an old man that I keep wrapped up and hidden in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
World mysteries, whether or not I should try and bring powdered
wigs back into style (they're due), character development,
dialogue, buying a house, making a million dollars, losing that
million dollars, kittens in silly outfits and revenge.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm colorblind. I don't like clowns.
You should message me if
You can do 200 push-ups in under 10 minutes. Naw, I don't care
about that just give it a shot (the message, not the pushups). I
mean, do the pushups if ya want, physical fitness is important, it
just shouldn't influence whether or not you message me. End of
