My self-summary
Just moved back after living in LA for the past five years.

I work. I write. I don't watch sports. I refuse to take selfies. What else, what else...? I try to get a little workout in most days and get a fair bit of beer in most nights. I really enjoy cooking and trying new foods.

I've got a useless psychology degree and an even more useless screenwriting degree.

Halloween is better than Christmas. By a lot.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing TV shows and movies and hoping that eventually I'll get paid for it. In the meantime...

Having just gotten back, I'm on the job hunt. Most of my work experience is in education, so I'm probably gonna try to lock down something in that realm unless something more appealing comes about.

I really love watching movies and TV shows. That may seem like a weird thing to be passionate about to some people, but I love it, nonetheless. It's how I prefer to spend my free time.
I’m really good at
Waking up early for work; I'm a decent cook; spelling; aaaaaand I'll keep thinking.

Also great at procrastinating with things that should really be a priority.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm kind of short with red hair. Believe me, I'm not psyched about it, either.

I'm told I have nice eyes.

I look young for my age (apparently), and get carded regularly because of it. Thought growing a beard would help. It didn't.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Shows: Community, Six Feet Under, Hannibal, ARReSTeD DeVeLOPMeNT, Breaking Bad, BSG, Trailer Park Boys, The Wire, Pete & Pete, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Cheers, Malcolm in the Middle, Party Down, Carnivale, The Life & Times of Tim, The Last Man on Earth, Stranger Things, The Man in the High Castle, and plenty more...

Reads: Ender's Game; Chuck Palahniuk stuff; Philip K. Dick stuff; all-things Hannibal. I don't read books as often as I'd like, and have been spending most of my reading time on screenplays as of late.

Movies: The Royal Tenenbaums, The Sandlot, Step Brothers, My Girl, Little Miss Sunshine (anything written by Arndt), Hot Fuzz, The Iron Giant, pretty much anything PIXAR, Disney musicals (Aladdin, especially), The Fly, Lars and the Real Girl. Big fan of horror (especially '70s and '80s stuff), as well as anything that'll make me cry.

Music: Favorite bands/musicians include Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Land of Talk, Leon Bridges, and random others. I only listen to classical stations in my car because I can't stand commercials and talk radio. Most of the time when I'm listening to something now, though, it's a soundtrack to a really good film.

Food: Spicy stuff. Recently realized that dairy and I don't get along well, so that's been disappointing.
Six things I could never do without
Beer/Wine/Whiskey
TV/Movies
Laptop/Internet
Exercise
Food/Cooking
Money, I guess
Math
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why it seems so hard to find a girl that wants to just watch TV and movies all day. Sure, we could go for a hike. That's fun once in a blue moon (ooh, I could go for a Blue Moon now), but why not watch something and pick apart why it's so awesome??

I don't dwell too much on anything. The usual stuff, I guess -- money, what I'm gonna eat when I get home, keeping my apartment in order, how I should be working on my writing more. All the stuff that keeps me up nights.

I used to wonder why people were looking for "New Friends" on a dating site, but now that I'm back in my hometown and everyone is gone, I'm like, "Ah, okay. Yeah, I get it now."
On a typical Friday night I am
Unlike lots of people on OKC, I DO have a typical friday night. It involves me and some friends at one of our places drinking beer, watching movies/Netflix, and talking about stuff.

Other times I'll be out with people for dinner and drinks.

The common denominator here is drinks. There's going to be booze involved.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will cry unapologetically at a movie if it's good. IDGAF. I guess that makes it not so private.
I don't like the movie Beetlejuice and don't understand how anybody else can.
