My self-summary
I spent the majority of my life focusing on the hard sciences; Physics, chemistry, and biology. Somewhere around my mid 20's, my focus switched to more artistic pursuits and I began working more towards a career in acting. Still absolutely love the physical and social sciences, I'm just not really looking for a career in them anymore.

I'm a bit of an old-school geek, I adore comic books and gaming. I believe that Saturday morning cartoons from the late 80's and most of the 90's are some of the best entertainment that has ever been made in this country. I still make a bee-line for the toy aisle whenever I'm in a department store.

I hold that life should be fun, and that growing up doesn't mean abandoning the things that made us smile as kids.

Oh, and I refuse to ever get a smartphone. Ever.
What I’m doing with my life
So I just moved to Buffalo from Rochester! Decided it was time to relocate to a city with more career options in the performing arts, and Buffalo has Rochester trumped pretty soundly in that department. I've got a small circle of friends out here already, but I'm definitely looking to meet a lot of new people in the next couple months!

Semi-professional actor looking to make the switch into full-time profession. Getting pretty close, too!

I've got a day job moving furniture. It is raw, physical labour that requires very little thought, so I occupy my mind at work with creating stories and scenarios that I intend to, but never will, write down. Definitely not a career, but it's keeping me well fed and housed while I spend my evenings devoted to the arts.
I’m really good at
Singing, writing, and acting. I'll make a stack of pancakes that will take your breath away.

I can dis- and re-locate my left thumb at will. Hasn't proved terribly useful in my adult life, but it got me out of PE in middle school during dodgeball week.

I'm an unapologetically loyal person; Once a friend, always a friend. Regardless of time, distance, or behaviour, I'll always stand by a friend when they need it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice. People tend to hear me before they see me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All time favourite books include The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon, the Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett, and I really enjoyed The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picault.

Hands down all time favourite movie is High Fidelity, very closely followed by Almost Famous.

I consider both the book and film of Sideways to be mandatory reading and viewing for every man between the ages of 25 and 45.

Right now I'm really enjoying the British TV series Misfits, big fan of Doctor Who (since 1983!). Been a huge fan of Frasier for years, just recently decided to go watch Cheers and get all the jokes that went over my head as a kid.

As for food? I love everything, but Asian's at my top. Love me some Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese!
Six things I could never do without
In the past few years, I've learned there's very little in this world one can't live without. If absolutely pressed to pick, I'd have to go with:
Good Windbreaker
A Steady Supply of Clif Bars
A Compass
Exfoliating Soap
Comfy Slippers
(The last two are a luxury, but I couldn't think of any two other necessities and so figured I could throw in a couple "me" items.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Superpowers. No, really. I'm kinda sorta writing a few different titles of comic books. I'm at the point where I could REALLY use a good artist who'd be willing to collaborate.
On a typical Friday night I am
either on stage or out singing at a local bar... or at a board game night, but that's a recent development.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a deep, secret love for romantic comedies, chick flicks, and anything John Hughes made.

I change the way I look. A lot. Partially it's the theatre thing, but I think I'd do it anyway. I just like looking in the mirror sometimes and being surprised.
You should message me if
You don't list "my phone" as one of your 6 essentials. Also, if you want some pancakes. Seriously, I'm a skillet-wizard and will cook you a stack of flapjacks that will make you swoon.

Frankly, just say hi if your interest has been piqued. Seriously, I don't know what the contact etiquette on here is, I feel like I shouldn't say hello until you've also at least looked at my profile. I mean, I wouldn't just come up to someone in a bar and tap them on the shoulder and launch into a conversation; I'd wait until there was mutual eye contact. I'm starting to get the impression that things go a little differently here, though, and I'm not really sure how to conduct introductions.
