My self-summary
I like to live; it's a pretty cool deal. I'm laid back on some things, incredibly strict on some things, and in the middle on a lot of things. (Sometimes, I'm really ambiguous about stuff.)

I like to sing. I like to act (a more elegant form of lying). I like to eat. I like to spend time in front of a screen that flashes a bunch of pretty colors in front of my face. I wish I were good at playing piano.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a recent graduate of Ohio Northern University, from where I earned a BA in Theatre and more debt than I will ever be able to fully comprehend.

I'm in that strange "what do I do" phase that many experience after finding themselves out of school for the first time in 16 years. Until I figure that out, I've started a YouTube channel with the incredibly refreshing and novel premise of two friends playing video games. I do most of the editing, I design intros and outros and backgrounds, I write the occasional skit and act as director and cinematographer when those skits need filmed, and I do most of our promotion on social media; my partner mostly just exists. I'm not sore about it. To pay the bills, I've got a decent job where I sit at a desk and wear a headset as I do nothing and stress about how I'm doing nothing.

The current plan is to move to Chicago once I get enough money to pay for an apartment, and immediately audition for every repertory company in the city. In my spare time I'd do small voiceover gigs until I became powerful enough to defeat both H. Jon Benjamin and Troy Baker and absorb their essence. Even if it doesn't work out like that, hopefully something good will happen; I've seemed to have pretty good luck so far.

I'm currently living in my hometown of Churubusco, IN, a.k.a Turtle Town, USA. Google it if you don't believe me. We're home to Indiana's second most famous cryptid, right behind Mike Pence.
I’m really good at
I'm good at drawing. Whenever I draw something, I show it to people in hopes that they'll praise me. I do this because as a kid, my drawings were never good enough to be put on the fridge, yet somehow business card magnets were good enough.

I'm supposedly good at singing, and I'm still working on convincing myself of that, because whenever I try to listen to my own voice I swear to God some gremlin goes in with an audio editor and beats the ever-living crap out of it. But I like to sing (I mentioned that already), so that's why I've decided to do it for a living.

I'm also supposedly good at acting. Whether that's true or not has yet to be determined, and requires more testing in less volatile environments with controlled variables.

I'm not good at dancing. This is inconvenient.

I'm good at writing. I think. People seem to like it. I seem to like it. I am people.

I'm good at playing Resident Evil, which has helped me make friends. In a way, you could say that's the most important thing of all.
The first things people usually notice about me
People first notice that I suffer from RBF. It's terminal. I get stuck in my head a lot and it's very easy to see. What I think and feel are very quickly translated through my expressions, actions, and tone.

The six things I could never do without
1) Oxygen
2) Nitrogen
3) Iron
4) Water
5) Glucose
6) Protein

...now that my Smart-Ass Six are out of the way:

1) Music
2) Interactive entertainment
3) Humor
4) People (in measured doses)
5) My mom's potato salad
6) A coat, because the Midwest is cold.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creative projects I'd like to accomplish. Approximately 99% of these projects never come to fruition. If I could get just 5% of them out in the world, I'd either be famous or arrested by now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, watching them play games or babysitting their drunk asses; or wasting time on the Internet, in my warm, safe bedroom...

Or I'm at rehearsal. That happens a lot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been off and on anti-depressants for about 6 years, but I've never been formally diagnosed with depression. My university counselor simply offered them as a possibility because my "standard of living isn't where I'd like it to be". I'm still not entirely sure what that means. I'm determined to not be a depressing asshat and I'm taking steps to become a generally better person to myself and to others. And now that i have health insurance (thanks, Obama), I've found a real doctor with a real office. I'd like to think I'm at a better place now than I was 4 years ago, or even one year ago.
You should message me if
you laughed at any of this, because I need to bolster my self-esteem. For the love of God, DO IT.

Just be warned, I may not respond, even if I like you. I'm still really nervous about this whole "talking to people" thing, and I'm a really shy person at first. That being said, if I do respond, that doesn't mean I don't like you. Well, it might, but I try to be really upfront about that sort of thing. I'm putting too much thought into this now. I should stop typing.
