My self-summary
I've traveled around a lot, living all over for school and work and life, from Louisville to New Orleans to Boston, with some Hawaii and New England, a dash of Chicago, a sprinkle of super-rural Missouri, a pinch of North Carolina, etc etc etc. I've been in Brooklyn on-and-off for about 8 years, but I've been here really solidly again for over a year now. And even though I consider myself a Southern boy and I have no idea where the future will take me, I'm here to stay and I'm in it to win it, ya know?

But I suppose I'm more than just geography. I'm pretty goofy, and I like to keep a conversation flowing. I think empathy is one of my strongest traits. I like to go all-out on things, especially throwing a party--my big 2 annual parties are Halloween and Passover. They have very different vibes. I'm not very into astrology, but my Cancer vibes are strong around home-making. I cook a lot. I like a good cocktail or beer. Yeah, I think that's a nice self-summary.

Oh and I love NPR.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a costume designer, mostly for theatre. Its a freelance life--I also assist and stitch and make hats--and its going really well right now, so I'm riding this wave. Some day (the next 10 year? 15?) I'd like to be teaching at a university.

Constantly trying to find the right balance between going out and having fun vs going home and relaxing, but that's not really unique is it?
I’m really good at
making friends at parties, improvised cooking, sewing, packing trucks, and understanding what other people are trying to say to each other.
The first things people usually notice about me
Its mostly my crazy hair. And I tend to wear a button/pin, so people notice that (accessories are important y'all!)

In the winter, maybe its the insane amount of layers I'm wearing.

I laugh real loud ("really loudly," I know).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite book tends to be whatever I happen to be reading (did I get that line from "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" ?). I recently finished Fun Home, and can't quite convince myself to finish Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Mean Girls, Muppet Christmas Carol, First Wives Club, and Woody Allen movies are my long-time faves.

For a while I confused Aaron Sorkin with Aaron Spelling and thought he was 1,000 years old. Oops. I don't have cable, but I do have netflix, amazon, my parents' HBO, and my friend's Hulu, so take that as you please.

Music? Ya know, I like stuff that's fun to dance to but probably not in da club.

And I'll eat anything, and often the weirder the better. When picking a restaurant, I always prefer locally owned, and why not somewhere that I've never been?
Six things I could never do without
A pencil. I've always got one in my pocket.

My Glasses. For seeing through and looking good in (WINK WINK).

My niece and nephew. They are adorable and amazing and I love them so much.

A wrist watch. I usually end up checking the time on my phone anyway, but I feel naked without one.

Floss picks. There's no zealot like a convert, and when I finally started flossing three years ago, it changed my life.

A kitchen. You gotta cook.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stories I've heard on NPR, how to make my apartment nicer.... and car crashes.
On a typical Friday night I am
going out to a bar or a restaurant or a show or some combination of the three. I rarely go dancing anymore, but, ya know, I could definitely be convinced, if the music was fun.
You should message me if
You're up for an adventure.

And also if you're up for a relationship. I've done a lot of figuring out my life solo, and I'm ready to build a life with a partner--I used to hate that term, because I thought it sounded like business and not love, but now I totally get it. I want a partner in life. I'm ready to have a lot of fun with one awesome guy.
The two of us
