My self-summary
Born and raised in California, and I've lived in San Francisco for the last 7 years. I'm a bartender, and I love my job. I'm a nerd at heart, and I work out 6 days a week, neither of which I hope define me as a person. I have tattoos.
What I’m doing with my life
Bartending, writing a marketing plan for my own bar, wondering how my Philosophy degree contributed to that decision, and writing a fantasy novel about families of feuding dragons with R. Kelly as the protagonist.
I’m really good at
inspirational high-fives, parallel parking, spelling, observing proper escalator etiquette, making themed playlists, smiling at old people and children on the street, pretending to know about wine, describing picturesque scenes of beauty to blind people only to find out later that they weren't blind at all, they were just wearing sunglasses, it's just that sometimes people look like they're kind of lost or maybe just out of it, and if they're wearing sunglasses they look blind or like they lost their dog. Jesus, I was just trying to help...
The first things people usually notice about me
That I have red hair, or that I have blonde eyebrows, or that my hair doesn't match my eyebrows. Or that I have tattoos. Or my Jnco's. I hope it's my Jnco's.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Bertrand Russell, Kurt Vonnegut, Jonathan Ames, Tom Robbins, a bit of Bukowski, Miller, Sagan, Sartre, R.L. Stine, ... are video games a book? You know what, never mind. I also read a lot of graphic novels: Preacher, Saga, Mind MGMT, Astonishing X-Men, Uncanny X-Force, The Boys, Deadly Class, New Avengers, Hush, and Y The Last Man, just to name a few

Movies: Anything in the quality range of 'Land Before Time' and 'Jurassic Park'. Not to say I only watch movies with dinosaurs. But if you do, that's cool.

Shows: Just the important ones about dragons, advertising, true detectives, or any combination of those elements. Honorable mention: Battlestar Galactica (the reboot), The Simpsons, The Office, Arrested Development, Life is Too Short, The Mighty Boosh, Luther, Friday Night Lights (I don't know either, it just kind of happened), The Wire, and most recently Stranger Things, because holy shit... what a good show.

Music: A... lot. Usually whatever suits the weather. Lately, a lot of Blood Orange, Real Estate, Joy Division, Childish Gambino, Logic, Talking Heads, Prefuse 73, Tame Impala, Future Islands, Lapalux, and Smashmouth. Jesus, so much Smashmouth. Also, Elliott Smith, forever and ever.

Food: Yes, I've heard of it. I usually end up spending half the time eating ridiculously healthy, and the other half punishing my body with mexican food. I love/hate living in the mission.
The six things I could never do without
-the opposite sex
-romantic notions/misconceptions
-first world problems
-... bacon? No, scotch. Probably scotch.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How wearing polyester zip-up shirts covered in dragons in middle school has affected me as an adult, intricacies of relationships, what I'm going to eat next, practical applications of philosophy, "what song would be playing right now if my life were a movie", idealism, the saxophone lead in 'Careless Whispers', why NASA can put a man on the moon but they can't make my shoes smell good.
On a typical Friday night I am
volunteering at a soup kitchen. Or at a bar, art show, or concert, loudly exclaiming to the people around me, "I could be working in a soup kitchen right now!"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own a replica of Ryan Gosling's trashy jacket from Drive, because I was going to make it my halloween costume, but when I ordered it, it was too small. I aborted the costume, and now I just have this ugly little jacket with a scorpion on the back. It's really comfortable though, so it's kind of become something I wear around the house.
You should message me if
I really wanted to just write "you want to live", because it sounds so ridiculous and creepy, but I thought it might be off-putting, so I'll just say something kind of snide and mysterious, like "you want to do something new".

No, that sounds weird too.
