My self-summary
Hi, I'm William Horwich. I like alot of things.
What I’m doing with my life
I work tech & social media for an interior design company, and wait tables in Silver Lake. I'm wrapping up bartending school with the hopes of consolidating my work hours to make some time for school.
I’m really good at
Talk. I think I'm ok at talking, listening. All the work I've done so far has been in service, communications, "interfacing", etc. So I definitely should be intuitive about this stuff by now. I also write some poetry, mainly about mundane things like pigeons and walls. I think I'd like to write extended narratives some day, but so far I haven't demonstrated any talent for it. Oh yeah, and whistling. I can whistle as well as anyone.

Other than that, I strive for excellence in anything I really commit to. I'm sort of a competitive person in that way. Someone I admire once said that excellence in anything is a very attractive quality, and I agree with that.
The first things people usually notice about me
People seem to think I'm a redhead. I deny it, but someday I'll buckle to peer pressure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Stranger in a Strange Land might be my favorite book. I'm trying to read more Palahniuk. My favorite work of poetry, and one I try to live by, is from Spoon River Anthology. Here's part of it.

"...That act of the Spartan boy is greatly praised,
Who hid the wolf under his cloak,
Letting it devour him, uncomplainingly.
It is braver, I think, to snatch the wolf forth
And fight him openly, even in the street,
Amid dust and howls of pain.
The tongue may be an unruly member-
But silence poisons the soul.
Berate me who will- I am content."

I listen to a lot of classical when I'm alone, but I can get excited about anything.

Favorite movie's always a tough one. Invisible Man, with Claude Rains is pretty good. It's hard to be legitimately intimidating in black and white, but he pulls it off in spades. More recently, Snowpiercer was fantastic. I'm trying to see more movies. I really need to see Zero Theorem, I always like Cristoph Waltz's work. He was amazing in this movie called Carnage.

I don't watch alot of TV. Breaking Bad was a masterpiece.

I like food. I've been called a "meat & potatoes" kinda guy.
Six things I could never do without
Really just work and a smartphone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. But specific amounts of the future. Like, the next week or month, and exactly what needs to happen between now and then. Nebulously launching my thoughts into where I'll be when I'm 70 is terrifying shit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing Magic. It's what I do with my Friday nights and very few things can pull me away from that. When you spend your entire week working, it's important to find something you can do for yourself, and not compromise on it.

That isn't to say I don't know my way around the city. If I'm out with someone, I'll show them a great restaurant, a great bar, improv theater or something. There's something for everyone in LA.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't really keep secrets. People who try to act mysterious are sort of a turn-off for me. Not that I need to know everything, I just played that game with enough people and I'm done with it. So I'm sure it'll all come up in conversation.
You should message me if
You have a nice smile, and you're willing to laugh. This is my favorite feature on a woman. If you're the kinda girl who thinks you've got this sexy scowl, take it somewhere else.

Also message me if you're a pastrami sandwich on rye. I've never met a pastrami sandwich on rye I didn't like.
The two of us
