My self-summary
After spending four years living in California, I decided to move back to the Midwest back in 2012 (I'm originally from Ohio and went to school in Chicago). Best decision I ever made -- life is good here in Louisville.

Overall, I'm a fun, friendly, semi-geeky guy who's good at getting along with just about anybody. I'm drawn to strong communicators, and fawn over great terrible jokes.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a journalist, and a bit of a workaholic. I'm lucky to love what I do for a living.
I’m really good at
It feels a tad arrogant to list things that I claim to be really good at, so let's just say I Enjoy: Writing, Cooking, Logic Puzzles, Putt-Putt Golf, Ice Hockey, Poker, Playing Guitar, Playing Piano, Telling Bad Jokes, Video Games, Board/Party Games (The Resistance, Avalon, Carcasonne, Subjective Guess Who), Arguments, Fantasy Football, Roadtrips, Sleeping

...fine. I'm REALLY good at Subjective Guess Who.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told by more than one person that I have "little boy eyelashes," although I'm not entirely sure what this means.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Catch-22, The Stand, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Cosmos, Sirens of Titan, Ready Player One

FOOD: Italian (anything alfredo), Mexican (anything carnitas), Food Trucks (anything). If there's an opposite of vegetarian, I'm pretty much that.
The six things I could never do without
Vinyl/turntables, whiteboards, guitar picks, songs in 7/4 time, DVR, the sun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life. Death. Beer. Sex. Politics. Physics. What to put in this box.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out catching a show/playing pinball at Zanzabar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have two little toy dinosaurs on my desk that I've had since I was a toddler. One is an allosaurus, the other is a triceratops. Hence, "allotrike."
You should message me if
You're happily weird, you don't take yourself too seriously, and you're capable of making me smile/laugh/think. I'll try and return the favor.
