My self-summary
I've lived in England, Hungary, Japan and a handful of US states. Been in Boston for several years now. Not much for image management. I'd rather look silly having fun than look cool being bored. People tell me I march to the beat of a different drummer, etc., which is something I never really set out to do, as I am certainly not the confrontational outlaw rebel. (In fact, I usually find those people reeeally boring at their core.) I mostly like feeling like I'm connecting with people rather than playing at human interaction like it's a game to determine social standing. Also, I'm crazy about stories... from the Epic of Gilgamesh onwards to the modern TV serial.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm between things right now so my priority is finding a new path instead of dating. I considered temporarily shutting down my OkCupid profile but it's too much fun to gawk at strangers.
I’m really good at
Making conversation that will be remembered at the end of the day. (But it takes a willing conversational partner to go on these flights of fancy.)
The first things people usually notice about me
The lively and goofy sense of humor. Unless they first meet me in a library or something because you're kind of supposed to be quiet there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Enjoy serialized cable dramas like Breaking Bad, Homeland, and Game of Thrones. My favorite comedies are usually too clever their own good and get canceled after a couple seasons, e.g. Arrested Development, Community. I'm amazed How I Met Your Mother escaped this curse. Also, I love Adventure Time. I can't imagine not loving it. In general I still love animation in my 30s and will never stop.

Movies is too big a topic to really dig into here so I'll just say favorite directors include the Coen brothers, Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino, Joss Whedon, and Jeanne-Pierre Jeunet.

For reading I prefer all sorts of genre stuff (but hopefully with a brain.) I particularly enjoy Phillip K Dick and Terry Pratchett.

Musical taste runs towards critics' darlings of all genres. All time favorites include Nick Cave, The Clash, and The Cure. (And I love dancing to cheeseball 80s music.)
The six things I could never do without
Interesting ideas.
Working with my hands.
Movie night get togethers.
Pond walks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Big picture, daydream type questions. When I was four and didn't really know what a brain was how did I already think of my mind (or "me") as being located in my head? (I think it's because that's where all the visual and auditory input is received.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinks with friends, catch a play, or see a show at my local rock club. If I'm at home I'm probably mainlining narrative in some form or other.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I daydream about destroying the moon.
You should message me if
I dunno, figure it out. The stakes are pretty low at this point, so talk to a stranger; it might be fun.
