My self-summary
Okay, like everyone else I'm too complex to summarize in a couple paragraphs, so be prepared for the generalizations. Between being a more expressive individual and putting a lot of value on the type of personal connection that can only develop over time, I'm not a normal guy by most standards. I am stubborn when it comes to certain principles but for the most part I am just trying to survive this crazy world and making it a point to show appreciation to other people who try to be candid and thoughtful along the way.

Some words and phrases I would use to describe myself, or what I try to be, include: INFJ, open-minded, inquisitive, playful, organized, affectionate, creative, respectful, logical, outdoorsy, and overall a strange and intricate variety of paradoxes.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working full time at a job to get by, while simultaneously trying to build a career based on previous positions within the development departments of 2 NGO's and various volunteer positions.

Otherwise, just indulging in lots of artsy activities and spending time with family and friends!
I’m really good at
Active listening, over-thinking by most standards (wait, should I admit that?), getting through my to do lists, reading subtexts, cuddling, and getting too much enjoyment out of bad puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know, nobody's ever told me what they notice. I'll have to get back to you on that one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Visit From the Goon Squad, All About Love: New Visions, Q.E.D.: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter, The Sandman Comics, Fear and Trembling, Frankenstein, The Odyssey, Bossypants, The Birth of Tragedy, The Man Who Mistook his Wife for a Hat, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and currently reading Wuthering Heights.

Music: Garbage, Ratatat Kaki King, Illogic, Miles Davis, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Snow Patrol, RJD2, Alicia Keys, Red Sparowes, David Bowie, Tool, The Arctic Monkeys, Jimi Hendrix, Elliot Smith, Muse, Al Green, Signal Hill, Aesop Rock, Pearl Jam, The Beatles, Marvin Gaye... There's SO much music that I love!

Movies: The Champions, Amelie, Burn After Reading, The Royal Tenenbaums, Finding Nemo, Little Miss Sunshine, Army of Darkness, Lost Angels: Skid Row is my Home, Vertigo, Pulp Fiction, Blade, What about Bob?, Beetlejuice, It's a Wonderful Life, and Requiem for the American Dream.

Shows: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Derek, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Cosmos, Orange is the New Black, Bob's Burgers, An Idiot Abroad, Friday Night Lights, Community, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, Futurama, and currently watching American Gods.

Food: Italian food is probably my favorite (Bruschetta, Risotto, Gnocchi, Pesto, Frittata, mmm.). I also really enjoy certain types of Thai, Mexican, Chinese, and Indian foods. Throw in some fresh fruit, breakfast foods, any form of chocolate for dessert, and that pretty much covers all my favorites.
Six things I could never do without
1. The people I love and trust
2. Something interesting to read
3. laughter
4. Music
5. Personal goals
6. A logical explanation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about all of life's unexpected outcomes and what they mean for everyone involved.

The little dreams that keep me motivated (traveling to Italy, going on a road trip along the coast, kayaking, adopting a pit bull, etc)

Why my love for dogs continues to grow as my faith in humanity slowly diminishes.

And you know weird analogies and puns, current events, gender, education, love, physics, music, language, and ultimately life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
I enjoy going to art walks, catching up with friends and family, seeing some live music, or just staying in to read or watch something new.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Considering how important political values are in this crazy time we're living in, I'll admit that I am very far to the left. I align most with organizatios like the Democratic Socialist of America (DSA) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) when it comes to matters of principle and strategy used to resist and reform policy on the federal, state, and local levels.

On a lighter note, I may have a man crush on Neil deGrasse Tyson.
You should message me if
Something sparked your interest, you want to share something you find funny, thought provoking or adorable, you have a good heart, and you're looking for something genuine.
