My self-summary
Hi. Hello. I'm James.

I like to think I'm a pretty typical snake person. I grew up in Connecticut with a stable middle class family life. I went to a 4 year college that I probably shouldn't have been able to afford. I double majored in Film Studies and Philosophy - both of which I am passionate about, but neither of which really translated into a career.

I work for a tech startup because it makes me money and gives me a lot of headspace time to think for myself.

I listen to a lot of podcasts about everything from the Supreme Court to pen & paper gaming. I frequently dream of changing careers to journalism. Or at least writing a blog. Ultimately I've always wanted to make movies. I freelanced for a while but couldn't find enough work to sustain myself. I want to get back to doing that some day.

Ask me anything, I'm a great storyteller.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working on a podcast with my friend.
I’m really good at
Listening. I work a job that lets me wear headphones so I spend a lot of it listening to audio books or podcasts. I love talking to people and listening to stories about their lives.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look young. I get carded everywhere and have been accused of having a fake ID at least twice. Once a woman in a store had to leave and walk into the backroom so she could stop laughing because when I asked her a question my voice was deeper than she expected since she thought I was 16.

People tell me that when I'm in my 50s I'll enjoy this, but now its frustrating.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of fiction, mostly science fiction or fantasy. I've been trying to dig my way through some different stuff as well, to broaden my horizons. I bought a biography of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte Dartur.

TV Shows and movies there are almost too many too list. I like Game of Thrones, Sherlock, New Girl, Community, Fringe, Orphan Black, Penny Dreadful, The Expanse. I watch a lot of the goofy CW superhero shows.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about telling stories. I majored in film studies in college and Iv'e always been a theater buff. These days I think a lot about the popularity of Serial or Making a Murderer. Throw in some pen and paper tabletop gaming to cover communal storytelling for good measure.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not just crashing after a long day of work I'll be hanging out with friends or playing video games. I'd like to get out more though.
You should message me if
You want to have a nice chat? If you're also awkward in online dating conversations?

Message me if you want to get to know me or talk about the Mets.
