My self-summary
I'm willing to bet I'm the only person you've ever met who has ever signed autographs in the town of Tomahawk, Alberta (population: 65)... jealous?

It's scenarios like that which lead me to my fledgling hobby (possible eventual side-career) as a stand up comedian. Sure, everybody eventually is going to travel to the big spots, but how many people have seen the little nooks and crannies just around the corner that barely get cable TV signal? It's a strange life, but it can be quite fun.

Have you ever been in a really strangely decorated bar when, suddenly, a large plastic giraffe falls over and instantly draws the attention of the entire room? If so, I was the guy in the back yelling for a medic and a very large neck brace (true story.)

I'm the kind of person who's kind of hard to peg down in a "type", as I bounce around a lot. Not too many people I know have ever had to put a shopping bag from a comic book store in their locker at the gym... but it's definitely something I've done more than once. That being said, this also means I can generally find at least some common ground with most groups, which tends to pay off. If we can't find *something* in common to talk about, you may be a cyborg... not that there's anything wrong with that.

One of my resolutions this year has been to start just randomly trying things I never have before. This has already lead me to my first shooting range experience (hard to believe for an Alberta boy, I know). Rock climbing and sky diving are on the horizon, and I'm always looking for new ideas and cool people to take along for the ride.
What I’m doing with my life
I dislike this question because people tend to use it to drone on about work, and VERY few people are defined in any meaningful way by their work. I'm certainly not one of them.

I prefer to think that what I'm currently doing in my life is looking for the next experience, opportunity, outlet or relationship that can help shape the person I am OUTSIDE of the work day. I'm always on the lookout for something interesting to do, or someone interesting to do those things with. Sure, this attitude may never lead me to a spot on the fortune 500, but at least I won't be one of those guys on their death beds wishing they spent less time at work.
I’m really good at
Writing (short pieces, I rarely finish anything very long so I can't say if I'm good at it or not), comedy, trivia games, reading people... and other stuff I can't think of right now.

Remembering my skills, however, is clearly NOT a strong suit.
The first things people usually notice about me
The shaved head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - fiction-wise: most by Joe Hill, "Odd Thomas" by Dean Koontz, "The Princess Bride" by William Goldman, "Mystic River" by Denis Lehane (SO MUCH better than the movie), and a bunch more.

in terms of non-fiction: I'm borderline obsessed with the works of Sam Harris.

Music - My phone has at least A LITTLE of everything from rap, to country, to a band that plays pseudo-metal on cellos.... but the bulk of my favorites fall in the rock-ish spectrum (which is still like, 12 different genres really, lol). Some favorites are Foo Fighters, Halestorm, Stone Sour, The Bravery, The Dudes... I could go on forever.

Movies: Wow. I'm a huge movie guy so I could practically write a novel on this... but the real A+, must-have list includes... The Usual Suspects (if I had to pick one favorite, this is it), Repo!: The Genetic Opera, The Dark Knight, Chasing Amy (or anything by Kevin Smith, really), Three Musketeers (1993 version), The Butterfly Effect, Bang Bang You're Dead, Pan's Labyrinth, A Time To Kill, True Romance, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, most of the Marvel movies (yep, I'm a geek)...and I think I'll stop there before I go way overboard and scare everyone away with the length of this list.

Shows: South Park, The Walking Dead, Louie, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, and lots of stuff that's no longer on TV.
Six things I could never do without
...Actually, I'm hard pressed to THINK of six...

- My iPhone (since having one, I have no idea how people settle for anything else)
- Laptop (with internet connection)
- Friends / Family
- Pizza! (has a more perfect food ever been created? I think not)
- Laughter

....Yeah, I dunno, I'm out. I could probably survive with those 5.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My comedy act
Writing projects
The future
Philosophy and religion (though I'm not religious at all)
and my various nerd-tastic hobbies.
On a typical Friday night I am
hard to say.... the gym, a comedy club, out with friends, or sometimes just chilling at home with a good movie or videogame.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is kinda hard cause I don't really keep that much private. Pretty much whatever ya ask I'll answer, but I guess the idea of this is to post something silly and semi-embarassing so.... I suppose the fact that I still, on occasion, play a trading card game (sorta like Pokemon cards with less children and more socially awkward nerds lol).
You should message me if want to, I guess.

Life's too short to let other people decide if you should do anything. If you wanna do something (messaging me or whatever else) go for it! You never know what could come of it until you try, right? ; )
The two of us
