My self-summary
Howdy! Just your average guy from deep East Texas who lives in Mt Pleasant, DC, doesn't own a car, can't stop writing and runs his own business in the online advocacy world. I love getting to know new people, and I really love to talk with someone who knows a lot about something I don't. I'm a science nerd, a music nerd, a history nerd...you get the idea. 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 suspect you'll blow me away, every time I see you.
What I’m doing with my life
Running amok, building a business, writing, playing music, checking out art & music around town, paying the mortgage.
I’m really good at
Off-the-cuff humor. Breaking the ice. 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 Thursday night. My amplifier goes to 11.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love extremes and balance, both. Movies: The Big Sleep, Dazed & Confused, Airplane, Dr. Strangelove, Casablanca, Pulp Fiction, Beverly Hills Cop, The Wild Bunch, Repo Man, Blues Brothers, Empire Strikes Back, Koyaanisquatsi, Bond flicks, more. Music: Led Zeppelin, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Beastie Boys, Rancid/Op Ivy, Billie Holliday, Miles Davis, Sex Pistols, Lucinda Williams, Black Sabbath, Nirvana, Bach, Beethoven, Tribe Called Quest, Carmina Burana, De La Soul, a good pop tune, all. Art: gallery or graffiti either way, if it's interesting and (preferably) challenging. Books? Time...
Six things I could never do without
Late afternoon light, coffee, music, satire, good friends, a neighborhood to hang out in, a gym and 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, meeting friends, seeing a band, dashing about. Or: at the house, unwinding.
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.
The two of us
