My self-summary

I like to be around people that are childlike, but not childish.
I mentor an amazing little girl through Big Brothers Big Sisters.
I love the mountains.
I haven't had cable in over 15 years.
I think people who start most sentences with "I" are likely selfish jerks.
I sing and dance all the time because music makes life better.
Since the age of 22, I have left the US at least three times a year; traveling helps me better understand myself and humans in general.
I think Stanley Kubrick, Danny Boyle and Wes Anderson make rad films.
If you are a good/interesting/beautiful person I'd like to have you in my life.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music that is made of win: Radiohead, Angus and Julia Stone, Ben Kweller, Sea Wolf, Elliott Smith, Old Crow Medicine Show, Beirut, Elbow, Imogen Heap, Ray LaMontagne, Regina Spektor, Paolo Nutini, Fiona Apple, Fun., Elton John, Jose Gonzalez, A Tribe Called Quest, Margot & The Nuclear So and So's, Ella Fitzgerald, Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, Iron & Wine, City & Colour...I could go on and on. I love jazz, classical, folk; even opera and Broadway tunes make me happy. Good music is good music.

Movies I watch again and again: Heavenly Creatures, The Goonies, Empire Records, Once, Amelie, 28 Days Later, Rushmore, Full Metal Jacket, The Usual Suspects, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Pan's Labyrinth, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Labyrinth, The Silence of the Lambs, Leon: The Professional, American History X, The Big Lebowski, The Princess Bride, Shaun of the Dead, Office Space, The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I love Hitchcock and old Disney (Bedknobs and Broomsticks!) flicks, all the Peanuts movies and anything that makes you feel good or think long after the movie ends.

Authors/Books to get lost in: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and all Lewis Carroll books/poetry/puzzles, Chuck Palahniuk, Oscar Wilde (perhaps more for his lifestyle than his actual writings), Kurt Vonnegut (especially Mother Night), Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss (serious genius), Bill Watterson, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Fahrenheit 451, The Road, The Secret Garden...

Food: I am a vegetarian that eats a lot of red meat. And sadly, I have Celiac Disease which means gluten actually tries to kill me. Worst food allergy ever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How my loved ones are doing right this second. Why history repeats itself. Ideas for my next book, song, piece of artwork. Why people still propose with diamond rings. Whether I will regret not doing or not saying something if I die tomorrow. Why people stay in jobs/relationships/situations that make them unhappy. Where to go on my next trip. How different I would be if I had lived in the same town my entire childhood. Why it is harder to make friends as an adult than as a child. Why people (generally speaking) are so easily corrupted once they have power. Why it is hard for some people to be open and honest. How funny it sounds when people say, "I need to go to the ATM machine". Queen Hatshepsut; she was bad-ass. Why religion often causes pain and suffering. Why some people fall so easily while others have never been in love. How someone can logically argue that the government should regulate who I can marry. How to help people experience self-love. How to increase happiness. How today is the youngest you and I will ever be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't own an umbrella. Please don't share that; I don't know what I'd do if that circled the internet.
You should message me if
You love life! And you actually live it.
The two of us
