My self-summary
I'm Josh. I'm from Connecticut, went to college in Poughkeepsie, and taught in Japan. I've lived in NYC for just over 3 years... or is it 4 now?

I care about three things: sharing, enjoying, and creating. I create to share and enjoy. Sharing lets me enjoy something even more. Nothing is too silly to enjoy.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a writer who works web-dev in Chelsea, doing education stuff, which is decently fulfilling! When I get out of that line of work, it'll be to be some kind of professionally creative person - comics, cartoons, games, whatever.

Until then, I spend my creative energy on projects that may or may not ever be profitable! I'm currently collaborating on an adventure-themed webcomic and an art/pop culture show on Twitch and YouTube.

I'm playing a long con on my audience where I convince them Trolls was actually a pretty good movie (it was!)
I’m really good at
Recognizing Simpsons quotes. I'm a total milhouse at actually coming up with any myself.

Mitigating stress, being social media savvy, and making very specific meals.

Reciting puns with perfect delivery.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall and my face goofs into a giant grin with little provocation.

Music
I really wish I knew how to quantify this. Old stuff is good. New stuff is good. Some stuff isn't. Things tend to sound better live? Other things are great digital?

The six things I could never do without
1 - Self-evaluation, 2 - time to relax, 3 - campy/cheesy/punny/sassy remarks, 4 - a writing tool (pen, paper, or device), and... hmm...

5 - The feeling of deserved rest. Like, a long day, long week, come home, kick up your feet, grab a cold beer or some nice wine.

6 - Finding the humorous things in life. They're usually between your elbow and your shoulder.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be better at creative things.

This

How to respectfully support and portray issues of feminism, racial equality, gender expression, and sexuality in my creative work.

The Improv classes I'm totally gonna take soon.
On a typical Friday night I am
On my way to a weekend destination, out to dinner with friends, or at home with a movie/show.

Spontaneity is fun! Also planning is fun!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I spent longer than I'm willing to admit on that humerus pun.
You should message me if
You can walk an infinite distance if you're having a great conversation.

You'll watch and discuss socially progressive cartoons with me.
