My self-summary
Confessed music addict and lover of talking over cocktails. I love the live music scene in Austin and tend to buy way more albums than I can realistically listen to. I'm always looking for another topic to learn about. There's too much interesting things in life to just coast.

Staying active is important to me. I'll usually work out 3-4 times a week. Weights, frisbee, jogging, kayaking are my usuals.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to Austin 4 years ago after graduating from A&M. Working as a mechanical engineer for a tech company designing industrial computing equipment (exciting! I know). As to what I'm doing with my life, well that's a pretty existential question.
I’m really good at
Quoting old Simpsons episodes, random facts and trivia, NBA Jam, Saying witty things, Mistakenly thinking I said something witty
The first things people usually notice about me
My very sarcastic sense of humor. (Usually toned down around people I don't know well). It tends to veer in odd directions.

If I'm being serious, there's a good chance I'm over explaining some cool (in my mind) history, science, or politics fact/theory. That's just the engineer in me taking over and there's no helping it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: I tend towards comedies (Big Lebowski, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Naked Gun, Hot Fuzz). For serious stuff I go for films on the dark side or with generous amounts of mindfuckery (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Fargo, Dark City). And of course, The Princess Bride (since I can quote just about the entire movie)

Books: My kindle and I have a deep and abiding relationship. Please don't try and come between us. Some of my favorites are The Magic Mountain, The Master and Margarita, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Catch 22, Fathers and Sons (I'll stop here before this list gets absurdly long) Guilty pleasure: cheesy fantasy books.

Music: All the music. D'angelo, The National, Spoon, Outkast, Miles Davis, Sturgill Simpson, and many more

Food: everything... I usually hone in on the menu item with the craziest sounding ingredients. If I skip over a dish I haven't had before, I could be missing my new favorite food. Can't take that risk.

TV: Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Mad Men, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, Archer

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
