My self-summary
I thrive on hearing the viewpoints of others and updating my own worldview accordingly. It's my belief that if people could learn to accept other ways of thinking as valid, we could solve problems a lot faster
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an amateur stand-up comic. I've been driving for Eaze since October '16 and it allows me to listen to podcasts & music all day, and it is therefore the best job I've ever had.

I watch way too many movies & TV shows in my free time.
I’m really good at
Being a stickler for grammar, wasting time on the internet, doing impressions of certain famous people, remembering pointless and obscure details about all forms of media. My true passion in life, however, is sharing a movie, band or tv show with someone I care about and seeing them take the same joy from it that I do.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically: My height & thick black hair.

Social: How I can go on at length about certain subjects with eerie accuracy as to the details; my sense of humor, which is hit or miss with most, but a select few seem to enjoy mixture of sunshine and vitriol.

I also have a pretty ostentatious laugh. Someone once told me they wished they could bottle my laughter.

Six things I could never do without
The Internet
Good food
Someone to commiserate about any of the above with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How awesome it is that David Bowie is ingrained into so much of our popular culture.

Why people can't appreciate something good while they have it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday night can range from being out at the movies by myself to being out on the town with my best mates having a gay old time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Like every comedian in the bay area, I have a podcast. It's called Media Maniax.

My philosophy on dating:
(Remember how I said I tell jokes?)
You should message me if
* You're introverted or like to keep your socializing indoors most of the time. I'm not a party/bar kind of guy. I like to watch movies, listen to music, read, and be witty.

-You cringe when you see bad spelling, grammar, or punctuation.
-You feel you are defined by what you like rather than what you dislike.
-You're able to absorb a movie or a song without talking over it and enjoy discussing what you watched/heard when it's over.
-You'd be interested in sampling the best Indian dinner I've yet had at Udupi Palace in Berkeley. I need more excuses to partake in their dishes.
The two of us
