My self-summary
When given the choice, I always get extra pulp orange juice and crunchy peanut butter. Because I am a man of substance.
What I’m doing with my life
My 9-5 hours are consumed by database development & IT management for a lighting company in Bushwick. I also run our company garden, which I have somehow managed to not kill off in the past three years. So you could say that I have a lot on my plate at work — mostly cherry tomatoes and Swiss chard, at the moment.

Outside of work, you can usually find me volunteering at Recycle-a-Bicycle, or completely negating any fitness gains from my 6am laps in Prospect Park by getting a hibiscus doughnut and coffee from Dough immediately afterwards. If there was a doughnut-eating/coffee-drinking/cycling triathlon I'd fuckin' rock it though.
I’m really good at
...sketching, designing, and building my next DIY project. Right now it's an abstracted LED chandelier. As the saying goes, "measure twice, cut once, and end up going to Home Depot again because you screwed it up anyways".

...ensuring that I have your consent before I launch into my twelve minute rant about how Frank Lloyd Wright is responsible for climate change and systemic oppression in America. Yeah, I know it sounds crazy, but get your own weird conspiracy theory. This one's mine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Stephenson's inability to end novels and Jane Jacobs telling Robert Moses to suck it.
MOVIES: Smuggling in a fifth of Jack Daniels into Regal Theaters so we can get loaded off of our bootleg Jack & Cokes while we watch Mad Max: Fury Road.
SHOWS: It took a few episodes to warm up to, but Bojack Horseman might be one of the best series I've ever seen.
MUSIC: If they've played at St. Vitus, they're probably in my library.
FOOD: I routinely mess up grabbing curry powder instead of cumin off the spice rack, so get at me if you want surprise Indian food when I say I'm making enchiladas for dinner
Six things I could never do without
— Sketchbook and a V5 Precise Pen
— Feeling guilty for losing my dad's old pocket knife until I find it while doing the laundry later that week
— A liter of extra virgin olive oil. Friends have accused me of drinking it, but that only happened one time c'mon guys
— A sub from Wegmans. What's Wegmans? You are in for a treat.
— Maraschino cherries with stems (it matters)
— Informing my coworker that yes, I did bike into work today, just like I have every day for the past two years, yes I know it's raining, no, that's never stopped me before, yes Zandra I know I'm crazy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I removed the shell of my racing snail to make it go faster, but if anything, it's more sluggish
On a typical Friday night I am
Did you know there's a bar that serves buffalo wing fried cheese curds? They put 'em in a bowl and you eat 'em with toothpicks and blue cheese dip. Basically the apex of mozzarella stick technology. Yeah, we should go there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I wonder what common social issue our generation will struggle to accept that might seem obvious to a future generation. Will cybernetics be 2060's LGBT rights? Who knows.
You should message me if
you find any of these things appealing:

happy hour at a local joint and trying drinks with weird ingredients
a guided architecture tour of The Highline from yours truly that mostly consists of me yelling at boring and overpriced condos
a quick bike ride to pick up supplies for our picnic in Prospect Park
The two of us
