My self-summary
Fairly stable funny guy. Creative archetype in an evidence-based universe. Likes dark beer and ice cream, sometimes in the same glass. Beer floats are awesome, is what I'm saying.
What I’m doing with my life
I work from home for my day job, a lucrative techy thing that pays for my dentist and music gear. I have an MFA in music comp and voice from CalArts. I perform in experimental theater, have written and produced a full-length musical, sing in a rock band, and have a live-looping YouTube channel. I occasionally sing opera and was involved in Hopscotch for the Industry. I compose a lot for contemporary dance productions, which is my favorite. I write for film too, but find that world a little stifling. I've won awards and stuff.

I wrote a fantasy novel that I'm still revising, and I'm running an RPG campaign based on my book's setting. I just had my first publication in a short stories anthology, which is great. I'm working on a few operas with collaborators, but that sort of thing takes a really long time to pull together, it turns out. I know a few coding languages, and am currently learning Python and have my eye on Java. Also maybe Unity one day. I'm in a very loving open relationship. I have a fair amount of reddit karma. Everything went better than expected.


I’m really good at
Brewing the perfect cup of tea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've read voraciously all my life, fiction and non, but I'm a fantasy guy before anything. Tolkien was my first hero, and I read the Hobbit in kindergarten. I've mostly been reading all of Discworld in order in honor of Sir Pratchett's passing. I just finished book 22, Last Continent. More recent authors are Pat Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, and Joe Abercrombie.

Graphic novels are important, too: Sandman, Sin City, Watchmen, Hellboy, Preacher, Transmetropolitan, Maus, Persepolis, V for Vendetta.

Mad Max: Fury Road was amazing. I liked John Wick but hated Jurassic World, except for any scene featuring my favorite character, the mosasaurus. Some of my favorite directors: Tarantino, Kubrick, Miyazaki, Kurosawa, Edgar Wright, Brad Bird, Wong Kar Wai, Michael Mann, Takashi Miike. I am unhealthily obsessed with cheesy martial arts films and anything involving at least one samurai. If you understand the reference, "I want to fight ten men," please skip the rest of this profile and message me immediately.

I'm picky about TV drama, but I especially love animation. Samurai Jack (see above), Adventure Time, Rick & Morty and Metalocalypse are all so, so good. I liked seasons 1, 2, and 5 of Breaking Bad, and I'm into Game of Thrones, though their deviations from A Song of Ice and Fire are getting pretty damn sloppy. The Sand Snakes were cringe-worthy.

The best major album to come out recently To Pimp A Butterfly. My musical hero is Squarepusher. I was obsessed with J. S. Bach, Lead Belly, and Nina Simone at some point in my upbringing. I loved Radiohead back when saying that in a crowded room made people look at you funny. I still have a soft spot for late-nineties and early-aughts electronic music like Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Autechre, DJ Shadow, RJD2, and Plaid. I threw a huge party when alt rock finally died and crashed and burned and was forgotten forever. If Sonny Moore was here right now, I'd kiss him on his clean-shorn side-scalp, at least. Most recent obsession is Three Trapped Tigers.

In terms of chamber music, I tend to compose rhythmic postminimalist (more Reich than Glass) and weirdly structured electroacoustic stuff. I especially like when I get to do stuff like this. I tend to shy away from writing truly atonal pieces, but I don't mind it in small doses.

Vidya: I've mostly been going through a lot of old NES and SNES JRPGs on my Android. I get really unhealthily into games with good puzzles, like Portal or Myst. Journey and Bastion were incredible in their ability to immerse you in the story without a single cut scene, and the great scores don't hurt either. I played my first Bethesda game (Daggerfall) back in the late 90s on a Compaq Presario. I've beat Final Fantasy 1-7 and 10. FF6 is still my favorite, but I had to change to a clean pair of underwear after the FF7 remake trailer came out, so we'll see. Super Metroid is the greatest platformer of all time.

When it comes to food, I am like the Nothing in the Neverending Story, except with slightly more chewing. I'm a supertaster, which means my palette is an idiot.

My biggest heroes are all comedians. Richard Pryor, Mitch Hedberg, Steve Martin, Louie CK, George Carlin, Dave Chappelle, and most importantly Bill Hicks.

Honorable mentions in this section go out to Dan Savage, Bill Watterson, Stoya, Carl Sagan, Charlie LeDuff, Klaus Nomi, Klaus Teuber, and Lee motherfucking Sedol.
The six things I could never do without
• shenanigans
• mischief
• hijinks
• tomfoolery
• monkeyshines
• 25' of good strong rope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who would win in a fight: Tom Waits or the RZA?
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday night is usually spent with the crew playing a pencil-and-paper RPG in my original setting. I wrote a mod for Dungeon World, if you're into that sort of thing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book. I have one very large tattoo that no one knows about but future you. I'm sexually dominant. As a kid my favorite band was 2unlimited. My list of guilty pleasures includes Lunchables and the Britney Spears album "Circus." As a kid, I used to sneak into churches to play the organ. I believe clothing in hot tubs is a sin. Sex positive, kink positive, GGG, AMA.
You should message me if
If you contradict yourself, for you are large and contain multitudes.

If you know why Jessica Rabbit chose Roger.

If you're a kinky queer intersectional non-binary counter-monogamous glam-punk warrior with perfect comedic timing who loves books more than Cookie Monster loves cookies and dances like we don't go nowhere when we die.
