My self-summary
I love things of a nerdy persuasion. I am a nerd of all trades, but first and foremost I am a cinephile (movie lover). I watch movies more than I do most other things. I also love writing, musicals (Hamilton!!), reading, and video games. I also really enjoy the outdoors and wandering around this great city, but only when it's warm. (So, in Wisconsin that's like 4 months.)

I am the youngest of four brothers. I am in a wheelchair, so I am not just magically sitting down in every picture taken of me.
I am very passionate about the fight against inequality and discrimination in all its forms. If that gives you pause, you and I won't get along very well.

Mostly what I'm looking to get out of this "online dating" scene are new friends and/or people to spend time with. If something more comes of it, great, but making friends is the priority right now.
What I’m doing with my life
I am in the Human Services program at Madison College as the first step to work with LGBT youth and/or students with disabilities at a middle or high school.

I am an intern at an LGBT community center. If that bothers you, please move along.
I’m really good at
Drawing
Writing
Making a fool of myself
The first things people usually notice about me
The fact that I'm in a wheelchair probably. Which admittedly kind of sucks, but it doesn't bother me either. Also, my smile.

The six things I could never do without
Family & Friends
Movies
My dog
Spotify (I am hooked)
The occasional Culver's run
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Movies, politics and religion, science, world issues, technology, inequality...

I am not religious but I find religions interesting. I chose agnosticism because it was the closest to my beliefs. I prefer to say I am non-religious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, usually with pizza and Netflix.

I recently heard that "pizza and Netflix" is the new "I love long walks on the beach". That seems completely accurate.
You should message me if
You want to chat and get to know me. Or if you want to catch a movie sometime. I am always looking for a chance to see a movie with someone.
