My self-summary
Craft beer, scrumptious food, bikes for days and movies for miles. Do you love to read by a soft lamp, chat with abandon in the forgotten corner of the party, lie in the sun on a sanguine summer day and dream up kingdoms of elves that could be living in the clouds?
Me too.
Do you like dinosaurs, cartoons, laughing til you can't remember what's so funny? Board games? Binging on Community til the AM hits and waking up early to get that controller in your hands and take down a cyclops in Dragon's Dogma?
Then let's be friends!
Whatcha into? What do you do? I'd be delighted to know!

Let's get together and do something fun, whaddaya say?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the Creative Manager for a digital marketing firm. Basically, I do what Don Draper does, except without the day drinking and unbridled mysogyny. Worked with books my whole life, and this is a nice change of pace.
I read a lot. I write a lot. I listen to music that makes me move.
I live in Wicker Park.
I’m really good at
Dressing myself without any help.
Making shit up.
Not golf.
The first things people usually notice about me
My tattoos. My beard. The long man in a gray coat that follows me everywhere in the distance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I go hogwild for science fiction- all those motherfuckers that changed a heart or two in their time, like Philip K Dick, Vonnegut, LeGuin, Delany, Bradbury, Lessing. I really dig comic books like Spider-Man, Y: the Last Man, Jimmy Corrigan, Bottomless Bellybutton. And all the old classics that keep me rearranging my brain, like Ulysses, War of the Worlds, Sherlock Holmes, the Bald Soprano, Revolutionary Road. Sometimes I burrow into some nonfiction; mostly history and science. Currently reading kind of a scifi Canterbury Tales called Hyperion, and a book about linguistics and inventing languages.

Movies for me is mostly classics, fantasy, and scifi, or anything silly and brainy and dangerous with a good score. I love Star Wars and Bladerunner, The Master and There Will Be Blood, Brick and Metropolis, Wet Hot American Summer and Looper. But my favorite movie is HOOK.

Oh, I'll watch some Seinfeld and Buffy. Yeah, I'll do True Detective and Doctor Who, Adventure Time and Twin Peaks, a lil Game of Thrones and a lotta BSG. Gimme something tangy and technicolor, gimme my TV without a chaser.

I'm nuts for the Shins, Weezer, Antonin Dvorak, Andrew Bird, Sufjan Stevens, Florence+, Edward Sharpe, Feist, JT, the Stones, the Books, Animal Collective, Scroobius Pip, Radiohead. That new St. Vincent album kicked the shit out of me. If something on the radio sounds good, I'll get in it. I'll listen to anything twice.

Big on games-- video, board, card, doesn't matter. DnD, Age of Empires, Arkham Horror, Skyrim, Bastion, the Last of Us, Magic the Gathering, Lords of Waterdeep, tzolkin, Shadow of the Colossus, terraria, KotoR. I've been getting into Fallout 4 and Sunset, and I accidentally started playing GTA 5 again recently. If it's fun, if it's beautiful, it's going on my shelf. I need more friends to play board games with.

I'm always thrilled to try new foods! I love Mexican, Indian, Italian, Thai, sushi, peanut butter, and Crafty Beers.
The six things I could never do without
Strong Coffee
strong words
strong handshakes
strong drink
A roll o' parchment and some pen 'n' ink
effervescent people
and some music by which to think.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop...
What lies in wait for us at the ocean floor...
Whatever happened to Baby Jane...
On a typical Friday night I am
Cutting a rug, tearing up the streets, using evil magicks to turn myself into a Party Elemental.

Or watching netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I murdered my father's father in cold blood on All Hallow's Eve for his record collection and only took the Yanni.
You should message me if
you're not deterred by my love of U2.
you drink.
you read or something.
I love making friends! So, don't be terrified to say "hi" or even tell me a silly joke!
