My self-summary
Grew up in Michigan, moving to North Carolina to attend grad school at ECU. Avid reader. Music listener. Film watcher. Culture freak. Procrastinator.
What I’m doing with my life
Going to grad school for Creative Writing at East Carolina University with the intentions of one day teaching at the collegiate level and perfecting the art and craft of fiction writing.
I’m really good at
830 different things half the time. Naming all the countries in Africa (cause it's not a country). Reading a novel a week. Accumulating music and filing the influences in my brain. Memorizing useless sports statistics. Researching literary movements in contemporary American literature. Meh.
The first things people usually notice about me
Who's to say? I don't wear shirts that have words, so people can't get a good read on me at first. I guess they notice my eyes (which change color according to how much green or blue I'm wearing), my jovial sense of humor, and my enjoyment of the arts during conversation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Inspiration: Jonathan Franzen, Stuart Dybek, JD Salinger, Ernest Hemingway, Nick Hornby (pre-Falling Down), Donald Barthalme, Jay McInerney, Michael Chabon, Chad Harbach, etc.

Inspiration: Noah Baumbach (Squid and the Whale, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Margot At the Wedding), Woody Allen (Annie Hall, Manhattan, Midnight in Paris), Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Life Aquatic, The Royal Tennenbaums), P.T. Anderson (Magnolia, Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood, Punch Drunk Love), Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather I & II, The Conversation), Butter Cream Gang.

Music Recently: Jens Lekman, Kendrick Lamar, Killer Mike.
Favorites: The National, Justin Townes Earle, Brian Eno, Radiohead, Animal Collective, El Guincho, Frankie Rose, Talking Heads, Drake, Big K.R.I.T., My Morning Jacket, and all the classix.
Six things I could never do without
books, sports, live music, erasers, films, I.P.A.'s, but the list may change by the hour on the hour, for whatever it's worth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The inner-dialogue in the webbing of my brain; how many cups of coffee I should drink throughout the day; that I never want to pay back my student loans; which album is the soundtrack for the day's atmosphere; who and what I should read next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably out at the bar breaking my sobriety pact from Monday morning.

If not, watching a movie, reading a book or watching whatever sporting event that catches my interest (a drink is usually included in these 'cause, y'know . . . )
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm on OkCupid.
You should message me if
you read, listen to music, and like movies
you don't read celebrity gossip
The two of us
