My self-summary
I iron my clothing before I go out and my cologne doesn't come from a mall kiosk, so I'm already a better catch than 95% of the other guys you will meet on here.

I'm originally from Wisconsin, but I moved out to LA for school. I've been out here for almost 5 years (besides a 2 month stint living in London). Thinking about moving back to London, but I'm probably too lazy to actually act on that.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a lawyer in Woodland Hills which is funny because I don't really like being a lawyer and I hate the valley. Kinda just want to practice the guitar more and become an alcoholic singer/songwriter and maybe become a struggling author/college English professor.

Heads up, I'm moving to Minneapolis in August.
I’m really good at
Knowing useless things about sports, music, and popular authors. I'm also pretty good at wasting my money on things I don't need and living well outside of my means.

I'm also really good at using caps at the PERFECT time.
The first things people usually notice about me
It depends on my mood and the context in which they meet me. I'm sure some people think I'm the nicest dude ever, and others think I'm cynical and rude. I'm not really sure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Season of Migration to the North, Anna Karenina, The Sun Also Rises. I also like Modern American Poets like Ezra Pound, H.D., and T.S. Eliot.

Movies - Good Will Hunting, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Little Miss Sunshine, Garden State.

Music - The Mountain Goats, The National, Saves the Day, The Get Up Kids, The Gaslight Anthem, The Antlers, The Promise Ring, Owen, Joy Division, The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine. One time I walked through an East London ghetto by myself to watch Joie de Vivre play at an old warehouse...that was pretty cool.

This section doesn't ask for art tastes...but I'll still tell you that I really like Mark Rothko.
The six things I could never do without
My Nieces
Music
Floss
Those AT&T commercials with the kids and that guy at the table
Traveling
Clean Sheets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How infuriating it is that they still make salad dressing bottles without squeeze tops.

Whether any Supreme Court Justices have ever hooked up with each other.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One time a friend and I got Taco Bell immediately after eating footlong subs from Subway. I felt guilty immediately. Also, one time I bought a hot dog from a liquor store...that was pretty bad too.

I recently almost cried to two different stories on ESPN SportsCenter.
You should message me if
You think I'm cool, and you think that I'll think you're cool.

You have really good dental hygiene.

You think The Beatles are the most overrated band of all time.

Don't even fucking think about messaging me if you list Mumford & Sons in your music section. Don't even think about it.

You need someone who can recommend the perfect song for every single event in your life.
