My self-summary
Have you ever seen the photo where somebody took a frozen pizza that comes with cookies and baked the cookies into the pizza?

I'm the guy who got extremely upset at that photo, mostly because I didn't think of it first.

Just for fun: INTP. Which means I sit around all day and think about how to solve problems that don't actually need solving.
What I’m doing with my life
Recently returned from a six month stint in San Diego, and I can't express how grateful I am to be back in the bone-chilling cold where I belong.

Hunting down the next NGO that needs a volunteer manager a.k.a cat herder. In the meantime, working part-time for a board game company, where I spend four hours a day hoping my life doesn't end in an avalanche of playing cards and poker chips.

Also a writer, tabletop gamer, and a ravenous consumer of documentaries. Especially ones about ravens.
I’m really good at
Mixing cocktails, editing writing, and losing with style.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice for radio, which perfectly complements my face for radio.

Also the fact that I know the difference between "complement" and "compliment".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I Am Legend, The Princess Bride, On Writing, and piles of neuroscience and philosophy texts. I also make a hobby of leafing through fantasy/sci-fi magazines and alternating between shaking my head and being breathless.

Movies: Give me an existential film, and I will watch the hell out of it. The Truman Show, Stranger Than Fiction, and The Seventh Seal.

Music: Wax Tailor, C2C, Talvin Singh, Bonobo, Thievery Corporation

Food: In a dream world, I would subsist on these three pillars: falafels, tofu, and palak paneer.
The six things I could never do without
NPR, a notepad, Coke Zero, an e-cig, a pair of shoes that don't need to be tied, and a good jacket.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I would describe the various stone finishes at The Home Depot in writing. My current favorite is "a winter sidewalk where the teen decided he wasn't being paid enough to finish shoveling."
On a typical Friday night I am
An idiot.

To be fair, that's not different from any of the other six nights of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I couldn't tell you the difference between Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams if you held a gun to my head. "Nerd icon that starts with J" is all it takes for them to get filed away as the same person in my mind.
You should message me if
You think there's a better falafel in Boston than Falafel King's. I don't think it's possible, but I'm always up for the adventure.

You're a fellow hobbyist writer. Can never chat enough about the craft.
