My self-summary
I am a nerd. I don't believe in "guilty pleasures." If you have something you're super into, I'll think you're cool. I like hearing about other people's passions.

I wonder why so many people take sports so seriously, while also underestimating the many positive benefits they provide to our social and political environment. But I love sports. Primarily a basketball guy.

My brain is filled with useless information, like the ability to name all the Presidents and a large number of Pokemon, or that the Virginia opossum is the only marsupial native to North America.

I am a mix of indoor and outdoor kid. Kayaking and fishing are great, and I enjoy hiking and running. In another life, I would live near the ocean with a boat to go out frequently. I recently went on a cage dive with blue sharks off the Cape, and it was the most amazing experience of my life.

And I'm also probably better in person.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to enjoy it.
I’m really good at
Making Ghostbusters references.

Staying up way too late looking up somewhat pointless information online.

Dubsmash videos.
The first things people usually notice about me

Or my glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Obviously, the following lists are way, way longer than the sampling here.

I read mostly nonfiction. Currently reading nonstop about the presidents.

Ghostbusters, Gojira, anything Edgar Wright does, Stanley Kubrick films (I really like films that have layers and solid structure)

Community, Parks & Rec, The Wire, Lady Dynamite

Sufjan Stevens, Robyn, Talking Heads, the Hamilton soundtrack, many things encompassing a diversity of genres

Y: The Last Man, Bitch Planet, Ms. Marvel, Gotham Central, Saga, Monstress

The six things I could never do without
Board/video games
Friends with dogs
Frozen yogurt
My kayak/lakes
Electricity (for a prolonged period of time, at least)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do people pronounce it "ree-cee's pee-cee's"? It already rhymes if you say it correctly!

How, after all this concussion nonsense, is the NFL still so damn popular?

Is Shark Week actually good for sharks?
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading about the Presidents.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I answer a lot of questions on OKCupid, even though I don't care about most of them., because I am interested to see who its algorithm thinks I am. The breakdown is...interesting. Not wholly inaccurate, but at places, fairly off. (I keep a budget, which makes it think I'm way more organized than I am otherwise. Not that I'm a slob. Just not sure I'd describe myself as particularly organized.)
You should message me if
You want to get a drink or tea or something, or you have something you're super into that you love talking about and want to explain it to someone who probably doesn't know much about it, but will be excited and interested to hear about it.
