My self-summary
I'm a quirky bookworm who loves music, bicycling, movies, and destroying perfectly good raw materials with tools. I like to laugh and have an oddball and sarcastic sense of humor, especially when it comes to the creatively absurd.
What I’m doing with my life
I fly around the world forcing people to run surveys and make charts. In other seasons of life, I was a jazz musician, construction worker, shoe salesman, journalist, reference librarian, PR guy, chocolate manager and assistant park ranger (not necessarily in that order). One time I made $8 on AdSense.
I’m really good at
Riding a bike, buying books, writing short films and building things out of wood.
The first things people usually notice about me
The hair. Apparently I have "Lego hair."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fitzgerald, Chuck Klosterman, Boris Vian, Albert Camus, George Orwell, Russell Banks, Evelyn Waugh, William Carlos Wiliams, Beckett, Rimbaud, Oscar Wilde, David Foster Wallace, James Baldwin

Comics! Saga and Prophet (anything by Brandon Graham), Judge Dredd, Ballad of Halo Jones, The Incal, Preacher, Sandman, Transmetropolitan, Copra

Eastwood, Godard, O'Rourke, Cohen brothers, Bertrand Blier, Guy Ritchie, Herzog. Jack Nicholson in Five Easy Pieces and Peter Fonda in Easy Rider. Anything with Daniel Day-Lewis. Basically every SciFi movie ever made. Also, I will put this out there now: Blade Runner is my all time favorite movie.

DAVID BOWIE! The Black Keys, Radiohead, RJD2, Crosby, Stills and Nash (Young is ok too), Led Zeppelin, Neutral Milk Hotel, Lead Belly, Duke Ellington, Daft Punk, Metric, Nirvana, Of Montreal, Rodrigo y Gabriela, The Shins, The Strokes, Garbage
