My self-summary
I'm not the best at talking about myself, but I'll try. I goof around and crack jokes constantly. I've been compared to the Muppets.

I LOVE film and tv. Graduated from film school in Philly but I've been heading back to my drawing roots. I'm an artist (animator, storyboard artist, illustrator). Raised in an environment where art is important, so its important for someone else to like art as well

I both need to be outside doing something, even just walking aimlessly, while simultaneously just wanting to stay inside. I skate, bike, and skimboard. A lot of time is also spent in record and book stores.

I'm a comedy nerd. A vinyl freak. And a comic geek.

And I own a rabbit.

I'm a WHOLE lot sillier than my profile shows. I vary between being really shy and extremely outgoing
What I’m doing with my life
Went from a jaded Manhattan barista to Brooklyn dog-walker (Boerum Hill/Park Slope). I'm checking off the list of modern-twentysomething jobs that struggling artists have.

But other than the dogs, I'm just trying to figure out how to get by as an illustrator. Honestly, I can't keep my foot down on something; this summer I've been ensconced in drawing political cartoons, last year I wrote and illustrated a children's book (it never went anywhere). I just love to draw! And I have so much I want to do.

And if you reeeeallly feel inclined, check my work: (yea, I know, its long. I gotta change that. Eventually. And update it.)
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at making people laugh; it's always great when people are laughing. But I can also be awkward (who isn't, nowadays, it seems)

Creating little absurd illustrations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. Honestly I don't really know what things people notice about me first. Maybe someone can tell me what they first notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- I read mostly nonfiction and poetry. Big Hunter Thompson fan (I have a tattoo of), HP Lovecraft, Allen Ginsberg, Charles Bukowski, Jonathan Ames, Portrait of the Young Man as a Artist, Clockwork Orange, Mo Meta Blues (aka Questlove's memoir), Into the Wild, Inherent Vice, Peanuts comic strip,. Definitely comics.

I've read Infinite Jest

Movies- Some of my top films are Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Robin Hood (Disney all day!), Big Lebowski, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (I always cry, one of my teachers even announced that to a room of 60 people), Where the Wild Things Are (hits me where I live), Clockwork Orange, Ghostbusters, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Dark Knight trilogy, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Tarantino's entire filmography, and many, SO many more. I could talk all day; B-movies, giant monster movies, 70s cinema.

TV- Community (still waiting on that movie), 30 Rock, SNL, Doctor Who, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Drunk History, Bojack Horseman, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Flash, Portlandia, Black Mirror, Arrested Development, Twilight Zone, Bob's Burgers, Archer, Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Music- An eclectic mix, my record collection presents a better idea. Regardless, The Beatles, The Roots, Courtney Barnett, The Clash, Miles Davis, Dinosaur Jr, Radiohead, Lake Street Dive, The Strokes, Creedence Clearwater, Gorillaz, Matt & Kim, Beastie Boys, The Shins, Childish Gambino, Sonic Youth, Band of Horses, Black Keys. A lot of soundtracks and experimental music. Majorly into Jazz (cool, bebop, dixieland, big band). And the Stranger Things soundtrack of course.
I have an always growing vinyl collection; LOVE my records.

I listen to the Marc Maron WTF podcast a lot; I find the conversations with certain people to be both really helpful personally and stimulating.
The six things I could never do without
my music/records
a pad and pencils/pens
my always trusty skateboard
my rabbit

It says six but I don't care:
Converse Chuck Taylor's
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I look up at the night sky, wishing to escape to the cosmos to see what else the universe has to offer. I refuse to believe this is all there is the universe has to offer. That's what I think about. And I seriously believe in the multiverse.

Also, why aren't all these ppl on the street at work. I work outside all day, but why are all these ppl walking around like they don't have jobs (but have enough money to not care)

Existential crisis'
On a typical Friday night I am
Honestly, I likely just skate around. Either aimlessly-observing-everything-as-I-go-by or at dangerous speeds where I race around swinging through traffic off cars. Or laying back and listening to my records. Possibly working on an illustration. Most of my friends usually have to work Fridays. This is a stupid question, it's just a day of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm bad at flirting. I know this. I've been told this. Just know this.

Also, why am I back on this damned site again (again). I mean I know why, I'm talking existentially.
You should message me if
You've actually gotten this far down and really seem interested and want to talk (I may be hesitant to send a msg sometimes).

And if you have more to say than just 'hi'/'how was your day'/'I think your bunny is cute'; seriously, that's a lame conversation starter & I probs won't respond. Please make an effort.
