Graduated from UCSC in Spring 2011. Been living in Berkeley/Oakland for the past few years. I am a Creative Director at an ad agency in Oakland. I spend most of my time hanging out with friends, working, and pursuing my interests.
Oh, also fixing things! Like my car, etc. I also am pretty good at driving. I drive my car on the racetrack and I autocross it.
I'm also good at self-promotion, but not at filling out profiles...
That I'm super out-going, willing to engage them, and can be somewhat intimidating. However those who get to know me know that I can dial it back and generally just be a fun person to hang out with, who is also capable of being a good confidant, therapist, sounding-board, etc.
I don't read as much as I should but right now I really love William Gibson, specifically Neuromancer. Would love to see it made into a movie...
Ok, so I'm a filmmaker, so I should really be into movies right? Well I am, but I'm not nearly as well-versed as most people I know in the films I probably should've seen. I like movies, not necessarily the all-time greats. Right now my favorite film is probably "Brick", but I've got a great deal of movies I really enjoy. Brick, Die Hard, Die Hard With A Vengeance [III], The Maltese Falcon, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation, Blue Velvet, Alien, Ghost In the Shell, Serenity, The Social Network, Empire Strikes Back, Upstream Color...
Firefly, Star Trek (all of them, but mostly DS9 and TNG), The West Wing, Community, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Daily Show, Colbert, Top Gear (UK), Archer, The Simpsons, True Detective, Game of Thrones, Rick and Morty, Mad Men, Girls, and a lot more. Watch quite a bit of TV. I work in video so I feel like I get a lot out of it.
I don't listen to a huge amount of music but I do enjoy music...I'm just not the most knowledgeable or well-versed person when it comes to music. However, I am typically surrounded by people who are so that helps. I like a variety of things...probably learning more toward alternative rock, maybe some electronic. Ummm...jazz is cool. Anyway, send me some music if it's important to you. I'll probably like it, but if I don't I won't be afraid to let you know. I am trying to expand my musical knowledge and experience and am making some good progress.
Specific artists, fine. Kasabian, Coldplay (guilty pleasure, that), The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Metric, The Black Keys, The Kills, Florence + The Machine, White Lies, Bonobo, Arcade Fire, Band of Skulls, Foster the People, Nero...lots of stuff.
I like just about any kind of food you can name and am always willing to try something at least once. Sushi, Mexican Food, American Food, Thai Food, Chinese Food, whatever, if it tastes good I'll eat it, and I won't arbitrarily decide if I think it will taste good or not until I've at least tried it.
Ideas for films. Lots of fragments there, scenes, images, lines, places, people...some better formed than others.
