My self-summary
I moved here from my little suburban hometown in Georgia about two years ago for tech jobs, currently doing -website stuff- in Manayunk. My parents were Yankees, so I don't have a southern drawl, but I can fake it well enough.

This will tell you some things about me:
(It's like, 90% pictures of dogs)

I am occasionally bad at messaging people back, please feel free to yell at me if that happens, I'm awful.

Trade podcasts with me?
What I’m doing with my life
I spend the day working harder than I really have to, then come home and watch a few episodes of Netflix or whatever I'm into, screw around on the internet, followed by reading and maybe listening to some podcasts until I fall asleep.

Weekly board game night with some cool Philly friends.

Long and aimless bike rides across Philly on the weekends. Or hanging out with my dog. Or a little hike through Wissahickon park.

Also, constantly trying to make my apartment a little cozier. Hit me up if you know things about plants???
I’m really good at
Fixing broken things, explaining and teaching concepts to people, petting dogs. And I have a wealth of mostly useless history knowledge. I'm a -decent- trivia teammate.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes are "really really blue".

You tell me, though?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lots of sci-fi with a bit of fantasy in. Terry Pratchett stuff (Discworld), Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, The Phantom Tollbooth, Cloud Atlas, House of Leaves... many, many more.
Currently reading some sci-fi: Reamde by Neal Stephenson

Movies: most Wes Anderson and Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki stuff, Lost in Translation, Paprika, and every nature documentary. Trade recommendations with me~

TV: Always Sunny, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Bob's Burgers, the old Twilight Zone Series, Good Eats, Iron Chef, Rick & Morty. Getting into Stranger Things right now, because I am really behind.

Music: Variety of moody pop/indie stuff... Mountain Goats, Bright Eyes, Belle and Sebastian, CocoRosie, Broken Social Scene, White Stripes, Rilo Kiley, Grimes, Starfucker, Smashing Pumpkins, occasionally (okay, often) Kanye, many many more.

Food: Indian food is the best; I could eat naan for days. Frozen yogurt is also amazing every time. For libations I like lagers (mmm Yuengling), Bailey's, and often bourbon, but who am I kidding, there's nothing so tasty as a fresh blood orange margarita.
The six things I could never do without
1) Dogs
2) Hope
3) The Internet
4) Animals. Especially dogs.
5) Jokes. Laughing is a good starting reaction to most problems.
6) People to talk to. I like to confess my personal struggles and successes to a few close friends who in turn do the same back to me. It's a good system for staying sane.

Nachos are also very important to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cute people. Dogs. Maps, I really love maps. That intersection of art and information is really interesting to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with a few close friends for board games and conversation (join us!), out with coworkers for drinks, watching a movie, cooking something up for dinner or being lazy and finding a pizza to eat in front of Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My last Google searches are:

- largest buddha statue
- pebble shore lake
- pizza hut flavors

I would be pretty comfortable being a stay-at-home dad, at some point.
You should message me if
Just do it, I'm pretty friendly. And meeting in real life is generally > awkwardly messaging over the internet.

You want to hang out in Ikea for a few hours, days, months, whatever.

Hiking, camping? I feel a desire to do more outdoorsy stuff.

I also really like people who make art, or create things, so cooking or knitting or any activity like that is very cool to me.

Also looking for day-trip/travel buddies, I haven't done that in a while and I like seeing new places.

Anyway, I'd like to meet a bunch of nice people and make friends in the not-online space, so let me know if you'd like to meet up sometime~
