My self-summary
I am the creator of a new type of therapy that is just riding bikes, eating sushi, and listening to UGK.
What I’m doing with my life
I never learned to surf so they kicked me out of Southern California, so I sought refuge in TN. I'm real new to the Nashville area, but before I moved this section would have read: I'm currently just working at a psychological counseling center, hosting a radio show on KUCI, reading books, playing music, going to concerts, improving my cooking skills, sampling new and exciting beers, running, training krav maga/kickboxing, and attending midnight movies.
I’m really good at
Making perfect, crispy hash browns.
The first things people usually notice about me
My rugged, manly beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My all-time favorite books have to be "Breakfast of Champions," "Infinite Jest," "Yes Man," "Lolita," and "Assassination Vacation." I have a big soft spot for Lovecraft and sci-fi nerdiness, but I'm down to read anything: nonfiction, fiction prize-winners, graphic novels, etc. Talking to me about books is as good a pickup line as any (except for obvious, aggressive flirting).
Currently reading: "Baked" by Mark Haskell Smith

Movies: Adaptation, Amelie, The Big Lebowski (anything Coen), Wet Hot American Summer, Cabin in the Woods, Oldboy, Wizard People Dear Readers, and a ton of horror movies offset by various documentaries and comedies until I can sleep again. I just started a blog where I pair beers and movies and decide which one is better. I'll post the link if it becomes super popular and being associated with it endears you to me.

Music: I will save time by just directing you to
(Though, a top XX list would have The Mountain Goats, Neutral Milk Hotel, Built to Spill, Pavement, Wu-Tang Clan, Mirah, Tom Waits, Belle and Sebastian, Spiritualized, Bob Dylan, Yo La Tengo, Beat Happening, Nick Cave, NWA, and The Lucksmiths). I kind of have a soft spot for songs that are more like short stories, witty lyrics, 15 minute metal songs, old folk songs where people die, and indie pop with ukuleles.

Shows: 30 Rock, the IT Crowd, Game of Thrones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Daily Show, Doctor Who, Peep Show, Strangers with Candy, Louie, the Simpsons. Basically things where funny words are written and then said out loud in a humorous way (with occasional breaks for time travel and/or wizards).

Food: I believe sandwiches to be the world's most perfect food. But sometimes you just need a big ol' burrito, pizza, or a plate of pad thai, or sushi or something. Also: exploring and finding new local eateries is the sport of kings. And eating most of these things with a nice craft beer is a worthwhile enterprise, as well.
The six things I could never do without
Headphones, pillows, paperbacks, bathtubs, Netflix, novelty
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If you ask someone what superpower they'd have, if they could have any superpower in the world, and they say "invisibility", is that person a pervert?
On a typical Friday night I am
At a concert at some ridiculous DIY venue, watching a movie and eating pizza at a friend's house, or reading in bed.

When this profile was written, I was getting over a wicked cold, and was playing scrabble with my old roommate while we watched stand-up DVDs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to listen to the soundtrack to "Beaches" in the car with my mom when I was little and liked it a lot, but had never seen the movie. One time it came on TV and I started to watch it, but my mom said, "That's really not a movie you want to see." I resisted this advice because I was like, nine, and I loved the soundtrack so damned much. Then, the mom in that movie dies of cancer and I totally cried forever and my mom still makes fun of me for that to this day.
You should message me if
Funny, feminist, sweet gals with a liberal dose of geekiness. Like Emily Gordon. (Ladies familiar with Emily Gordon are probably well on their way).
