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 work in web-dev in Chelsea, working on education stuff, which I love! If I ever leave that career, it'll be to be some kind of writer/designer person - comics, cartoons, games, whatever.

Until then, I spend creative energy on projects! Collaborating on an adventure-themed webcomic right now, and it's a ton of fun.
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.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Shows

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?

Food
Steak, and steak associated items.
Japanese — Living in Japan for 2 years left its mark
Ham, cheddar, spicy mustard on seeded rye.
Ginger molasses cookies, just... I need more of them, please.
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.

Is Al Gore sad?

This

How to respectfully support and portray issues of feminism, racial equality, gender expression, and sexuality in my creative work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering if Al Gore is sad.

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 think Disney World rides like Carousel of Progress and Jungle Cruise are simply the best ever.

You have projects you're passionate about! And like to share ideas!

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