My self-summary
I'm quick with a joke, passionate about anything I take an interest in, and incredibly loyal to the people I care about. I'd like to meet funny, driven, and talented women. And ideally their corgis.
What I’m doing with my life
Professional life:
Freelance branding and product design. Working with smaller companies is a lot faster and a lot more fun than coloring inside X Megacorp's lines.

Personal life:
I'm a huge sports fan:
Always up for watching or playing.
Writing really specific football jokes (shameless plug for my handiwork here : awwsnapnfl.tumblr.com.)
Bowling League member. Never thought I'd have to say that about myself.

Stocks:
Loosely following the market
Working on my own stock market-inspired fantasy platform. Sports and Stocks are my chocolate and peanut butter.

Standard:
Love checking out new spots in the city with friends
Gym 3-5 days a week
Movie buff
Standup comedy junky (Hannibal, Patton, Cross; all-stars)
Live concert lover
I’m really good at
Photoshopping really hilarious, useless things. I bet mom would put them up on the fridge!

Laughing at all the wrong parts of movies.

Parsing out what people say from what the mean. …Most of the time.

Providing running commentary for movies. Product of my youth (anyone remember MST3k?)
The first things people usually notice about me
…is my dimples. Gram said that's where angels kissed my cheeks in heaven; I didn't have the heart to tell her it's by all rights a genetic deformity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Slaughterhouse Five
4 Hour Body, 4 Hour Workweek (Tim Ferriss seems to know his shit)
Design textbooks because I'm just a barrel of laughs

Movies:
Daniel Craig-era Bond movies
Thank You for Smoking
I've seen Team America more than any reasonable person should

Music:
Not super picky; loads of hip hop, probably too much of what I listened to in high school & college, and some Spotify rabbithole magic to round out the set.

Shows:
Archer
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Top Gear

Food:
Sushi
Italian
Peruvian (Steak, seafood, peppers and onions; what's not to love?)
The six things I could never do without
My laptop (Dorky as it may be, it gets me paid)
Music (I practically always listening to *something*)
My car (I did the no-car thing for a couple years when I got here, now I'm completely spoiled. It's nice to be able to explore the city though)
Cast Iron (Laugh all you want, I'll make you the best steak you've ever had.)
Obligatory: Friends & Family (Not that I don't love them, but it seems a little cliché)
Excessive punctuation (Clearly it's a problem for me)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
fonts, grids, and colors. I'd kill to be able to keep it just during work hours, but it's inescapable. If you know anyone else that blurts out font names without provocation, feel free to smack them.
On a typical Friday night I am
…playing it by ear because I'm awful at making plans in advance. A little spontaneity goes a long way.
With that said, should that Friday night involve pool, shuffleboard, grabbing a few drinks with friends, or just watching a movie wrapped up on the couch, it was probably a very decent night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watch more Food Network than any straight male should. It's totally paying off, 'cause I can cook like a champion.
You should message me if
You have a sense of humor, bonus points for a sarcastic side.

You're a sports fan, especially one soldiering through this Niners season. Jesus.

You're equally fond of nights out for dinner and drink or on the couch with a movie. The PJ and popcorn game is strong over here.
