My self-summary
I sincerely enjoy the human experience.

Entp. Definitely extroverted.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an assistant director of food for a restaurant group. I've cooked at the best restaurants in Philly and nyc over the past 10 years, for better and for worse.

I'm starting to see the fruits of my labor.
I’m really good at
Cooking, conversation, disc golf, creating art, writing, dance parties in awkward spaces, watching the sun rise, scrabble.
The first things people usually notice about me
The way I hold myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:1984, Brave New World, On the Road, Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance, One flew over the cuckoo's next, Slaughterhouse five, Farenheit 451, Naked Lunch, Catch 22, Clockwork Orange, Infinite Jest, Lolita, 100 years of solitude. anything ive read by murakami. Edit: a lot of cookbooks right now to be honest. (Volt ink and bouchon bakery have been two of my favorite recently along with perusing the complete bocuse becase you cant forget where you came from.). Really enjoying Tom wolfe's style in the bonfire of the vanities. Lots of philosophy as well. Descartes, Heidegger, Camus, Kierkegaard, etc.

Movies: Gaspar Noe, Takashi Miike, Akira Kurosawa, David Lynch, David Cronenberg, Stanley Kubrick, Werner Herzog, Alfred Hitchcock, Martin Scorcese, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Fritz Lang, Roman Polanski, Mel Brooks, The entire Monty Python crew. Also big into anything from Troma productions. Edit: just rewatched no country for old men and remembered how brilliant that film is.

Music: doom metal and a lot of Electronic electronic music that isnt glow sticks and people eating ecstacy for the first time. Scuba, Nicolas jaar, legowelt, Jamie xx, burial, maya jane coles, machinedrum and george fitzgerald to name a few. Favorite bands of all time include the Disco biscuits, The misfits, Beach Boys, The Grateful Dead, Kraftwerk, My bloody valentine, Hot Chip, Wu tang Clan, Talking heads, and NoFX. Edit: Asked about my wildly pretentious end of year best album list! Hah. Seriously, it's awesome. Chelsea Wolfe is #1.

Shows: I dont really watch much tv. Louie, Breaking bad, Workaholics, The simpsons. All time include Twin Peaks, Arrested Development, The og Prisoner, Alfred Hitchcock hour, Twilight zone and the wire.

Food: I can cook anything and I will eat anything at least once. I will order whatever Ive never had before. I'm big into offal. Turning peasant food and things a lot of people throw away into incredible food is truly an art. Couer de cochon, sweetbreads, chicken livers and pig tails are some of my favorites. Edit: my squab game is on point right now. sous vide then finished in a pigs bladder...popped tableside of course. Other people? Will, Vetri, fork, le virtu and Townsend.

The six things I could never do without
animal fat
sincere conversation
an outlet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
To be very honest, food is wholly consuming to me. My tv sits in the corner unplugged. I rarely watch Netflix nowadays. I read and read and read and read. I spend time on various forums (reddit amongst many others) discussing cheese, charcuterie, food science and plating with some of the best around the world. I collect insanely detailed and scientific modern books (see: modernist cuisine) and collect vintage (pre70s, especially French!) cookbooks. If I'm not working or dancing, I'm learning. What else should anyone do?

The creative process.

In what fashion will I obtain my own sealand?

What's the fucking deal with MRAs? That's an embarrassment to being a human, let alone a man. Being a bro is one thing, making the choice to be amalgamated with this mentality is shameful.

What show do I pick tonight?

Who are these people that answer yahoo questions?

What the fuck is your dumbass talking about when you say you're down to earth? That's such an unbelievably contrived and bullshit description of your ethos that proves a lack of authenticity. This goes far beyond okcupid.

What am I making for staff meal tomorrow?
On a typical Friday night I am
All types of ill shit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You've walked past my art.
You should message me if
You can tell secrets while maintaining rhythm on the dancefloor.

You have an awesome kitchen and want someone to cook there.

You want to share the most ridiculous messages you get.

You and I share an 80%+ match. I've met some incredible people from here that became good friends.
