My self-summary
I am pretty much game for anything, which people often mistake for a lack of opinions. Try me. I'm up for it as long as we probably won't die and the result is net zero or positive for humanity.
What I’m doing with my life
Communications consultant in the public sector. At work I write in AP style, which prohibits the Oxford Comma. Right now OKCupid is my best outlet for that sweet, clarifying punctuation mark.

I occasionally write Yelp fiction
I’m really good at
Riding a bike, witty banter, substantive conversation, defusing tension, eye contact, exhibiting sartorial flair, cooking (sans recipe), writing quarter-finished works of fiction, dancing (no technical training), empathy.
The first things people usually notice about me
Imperfect control of my limbs. Nod and listen a little too intently when you talk to me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Invisible Cities / The Magicians / The Butter Battle Book / Breakfast of Champions

My Neighbor Totoro / The Life Aquatic / Love, Actually / 28 Days Later

Battlestar Galactica / That Mitchell and Webb Look / TNG

Music of the moment: Chance the Rapper, the Wombats, Purity Ring
Music for always: Stephin Merritt.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to survive if there's not a zombie apocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
No matter what we all write in this section, there *is* such a thing as a typical Friday night. In the eyes of the cold, expansive universe, every Friday night is the same.
You should message me if
- Doing so will distract you -- even momentarily -- from existential dread, ennui, or a toothache.
- A numerological pattern hidden in your name matches one in mine.
- A numerological pattern hidden in your name leads to buried treasure under the Vatican.
- You're just an average loser who can't catch a break, but are soon to discover your destiny to save all of wizardkind.
- You don't need rap, rap needs you.
- You look me over and you think that I'm all right.
- All right in a sort of a limited way for an off night.
- You think you know me from the cinematographer's party.
- Who are you to blow against the wind?
