My self-summary
First and foremost: I'm a big movie guy. You should probably know that, because if you spend some time with me, that'll probably be a fairly frequent topic of conversation. I went to film school a few years ago, though that industry proved to be a bit more impenetrable than I might have hoped.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working for a big company doing a job that's sort of so-so while I try to find a job that's less so-so.
I’m really good at
Wasting time on the internet. You might even say I'm an expert at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have glasses and beard. That's probably the first thing people would notice. Too obvious?

I'm quiet. I may as well admit that up front. I'm not that guy at the party who has a rapt crowd in a semi-circle around him laughing at his jokes and listening attentively to his anecdotes. I'd love to be that guy, don't get me wrong. But typically I'm the guy listening to that guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My favourite books include stuff like 1984, anything Sherlock Holmes, The Time Traveler's Wife, Kitchen Confidential, Lullabies for Little Criminals, Watchmen, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, among others.

Movies: It's pretty much impossible to narrow it down to just a few. Anything by directors like Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock, Paul Thomas Anderson, the Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson, Woody Allen, Steven Soderbergh, Edgar Wright... the list continues. Heist movies (The Asphalt Jungle, Rififi, Ocean's Eleven). Raiders of the Lost Ark. Star Wars. I could go on and on, but I guess I'll stop there.

Shows: I probably watch too much TV. Parks and Recreation, The Knick, Fargo, Rick and Morty, Homeland, The Americans, Bob's Burgers, Breaking Bad, Community, The Daily Show, Seinfeld, The Simpsons, Futurama, Star Trek, 24, Frasier, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Friends, Lost... again, I could just keep going, but I'll stop before this gets insanely long (What? Too late?).

Music: I'm not a huge music guy. Not that I don't listen to music, but the only time I really get a chance to is in the car, and even then I mostly listen to podcasts. Do the dulcet tones of Ira Glass' voice count as music...? [crickets]

Food: I'm fairly food-obsessed, so pretty much anything. I think there's something to love in every type of cuisine: Italian, French, Middle Eastern, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, Mexican... for me there are few things I love more than discovering some new delicious dish that I've never tried before.
The six things I could never do without
1) My friends and family
2) Walking around
3) My TV
4) My PVR
5) Good food
6) Writing stuff (I have more blogs than any one person should probably have)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, I guess. Where I'm going. How I'll get there.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing. Probably out with friends. Most likely watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was about twelve, I ate an entire sample-sized tube of toothpaste on a dare. It took me about a decade to stop being nauseated by anything minty.

I did this for a dollar. No, I wasn't the smartest kid.
