My self-summary
Once, I was bitten by a crocodile on the banks of the Nile.

OK, so it was ten inches long, sitting in a bucket, and I maybe (definitely) deserved it for sticking my hand in its plastic home. There's a universe out there where this ends painfully in an Egyptian hospital, but in this one I got nothing more than a barely visible scar.

I like to think of it as the world teaching me that my stupid decisions don't have to have consequences. That and the value of the occasional lie of omission in storytelling.
What I’m doing with my life
Spending my weekdays at everyone's favorite primary-color loving tech megacorp.

The rest of the time, an only slightly cliché combination of: rock climbing, computer programming, open-container law flouting, cabeza taco eating, and mid-20s existential crisising.
I’m really good at
Remembering things I should have forgotten, forgetting things I should have remembered, winning bets of all varieties, learning just enough of a language to get myself kicked out of a bar, singing louder at karaoke than my vocal abilities justify.
The first things people usually notice about me
They tell me I have a laugh like a super villain monologuing. Which is stupid, because I'd never make the mistake of monologuing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite album that how-the-hell-did-I-not-listen-to-until-like-a-decade-after-everyone-else: Kanye's Graduation.

Favorite bag of jolly ranchers in aural form: BØRNS Dopamine.

Favorite movie that I maybe kinda originally thought was about superheroes: Birdman

Favorite cuisine from a country not colonized by Europe: Ethiopian

Favorite book that my 14 year old self definitely did not understand as well as he thought he did: Lolita

Favorite book that my now self still doesn't understand as well as he thinks he does: Kafka on the shore

Favorite childhood comfort food that sounds bizarre when translated into English: Split pigeon pea stew over rice
The six things I could never do without
Public transit
Temperature lows above freezing (strike that, apparently I can do without this. Thanks, NYC!)
Dark chocolate
Darker Beers
That internet thing the kids love so much
Running out of things to list before hitting quota
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the G doesn't connect at Atlantic Av/Barclay's.

How to quote someone who wrongly used "[sic]".

Why some people choose to wear socks in situations where it's permissible not to.

What Lil Jon *would* turn down for.
On a typical Friday night I am
attempting to find the right balance of board games and terrible life decisions.
You should message me if
you're somewhere between weirdly passionate and passionately weird.
