My self-summary
Howdy! Just your average guy from deep East Texas who lives in Mt Pleasant, DC, doesn't own a car and runs his own business (internet politics & advocacy, which I also write about). I'm endlessly curious, and I love to talk with people who know about things I don't. Occasionally, I play bass in a rock & roll band. I may be the only guy on OKCupid who ISN'T lying about his height, his age or his abs.

Who are you? Probably, a complete surprise -- that's half the fun. But I bet you'll blow me away, every time I see you.
What I’m doing with my life
Doing things, building a business, writing when I can, playing music, paying the mortgage.
I’m really good at
Off-the-cuff humor. Meeting people. Turning chance encounters into long-term connections. Speaking in public. Staying up late. Noticing when you change your hair.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to make an impression when I enter a room, sometimes the intended one. I smile a lot, I make jokes, I'm fun to talk with, I have a lot of energy. I'm usually a tad noisier than the average bear. It was once posted on Facebook that I'm the best time you'll have on a Wednesday night.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Aesthetically, I love extremes and balance. Movies: The Big Sleep, Dazed and Confused, Airplane, Dr. Strangelove, Casablanca, Pulp Fiction, The Wild Bunch, Empire Strikes Back, Koyaanisquatsi, Bond flicks, more. Music: Led Zeppelin, James Brown, Beastie Boys, Rancid/Op Ivy, Sex Pistols, Black Sabbath, Nirvana, Bach, Beethoven, Carmina Burana, Tribe Called Quest/De La Soul, a good pop tune, all. Food: pizza, brunch. Art: gallery or graffiti either way, if it's interesting. Books? When I can.
The six things I could never do without
Late afternoon light, coffee, wikipedia, people to meet, a neighborhood to hang out in, a gym or a bike.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How things work: music, movies, people, art, cities, technologies, cultures. Also: brunch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to a party/social thing, meeting friends, seeing a band, dashing about. Or: at the house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own a couple of DVDs of videos of rockets and spacecraft launching, I kid you not.
You should message me if
You think we'd have fun, too.
