My self-summary
I'm a curious person.

Like a detective searching through a closed case for signs of foul play, I'm constantly examining my own life, my actions, my conclusions, always in search of a better way. A better way to think. A better way to feel. A better way to show up in the world. A better way to find a better way...

This relentless search can be difficult at times, for I often find that there are few others like me who care so much about what is not immediately evident to most people. But there are others, I know that. I read their books. I watch their movies. I listen to their ideas. I watch. I learn. I know I'm not alone.

But it'd be nice if I had somebody to distract me!
What I’m doing with my life
I just quit my job as a custom retail cabinet maker in order to pursue my dream of becoming somebody who gets paid to come up with ideas.

I have a lot of ideas... I'm interested in writing. I want to write a children's book, and a script for a puppet show. I tried making a comic-book last summer. I'll try again.

I coach high school wrestling, and am currently in the middle of my 4th season of doing so. I won't tell you which school I work for, but I will say that we were state champions last year, and are looking to repeat.

I play guitar and jam with my drummer friend at least once a week. We're trying to combine black metal and jazz. We are cool idiots.
I’m really good at
Analogies, metaphors, solving people problems, making connections between different topics, climbing buildings. Normal stuff mostly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Bell Jar, Factotum, Harry Potter, The Old Man and the Sea, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, It, The Outsiders.

I also read a lot of random non-fiction.

My taste in music varies wildly, but anything that resonates with my emotional state at the time of consumption is going to be with me for a long time. Its crazy how certain songs really can bring back memories that were thought to be long forgotten.

I tend to like movies if I notice some sort of underlying meaning while watching the characters or the way the cinematography is done. I get excited about a movie whenever I notice a metaphor or some kind of technical device that I didn't know existed. Hence, I am a fan of watching movies more than once. I like to "see how they were done", not just see them.
The six things I could never do without
-new information
-old friends
-water (I drink a LOT of water)
-simplicity
-openness
-other people's perspectives
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is it that I'm not seeing about the current situation?
Where have I seen a similar problem before?
How do I make solving a problem into playing a game?
Who do I know that could give me some good advice?
When am I going to be satisfied with the answers I already have?
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't make plans, so I'm always free until I'm doing something else. I like to jump from ship to ship.
You should message me if
You have a high tolerance for abstract conversation, playfulness, and improvisation.
