My self-summary
Jack of all trades, master of puns. Often obsessive over projects, and sometimes forget to have a life outside those projects. I usually work as close to 24 hours a day as possible, whether that really benefits me or not. I make my own hours, so that probably says a lot about me. I'm a business owner in the fine arts industrial complex (by that I mean I'm a book publisher.)

I'm probably more eccentric than most people could handle. I raise earthworms in my basement for composting and for fishing. I grow my own tea and vegetables. I drink a lot of coffee and I drink a lot of alcohol. I spend a lot of money on food, and when I feel like cooking, I'm a bit of a gourmet. When cooking for others, I usually stick to the classics (ie Mexican food), but when cooking for myself, I like to use ingredients that many Americans wouldn't find palatable. If you're adventurous, ask me to make you paella. It would make my day.

I am more punk than I look.
What I’m doing with my life
Work work work. Trying to make time to work on personal projects, but there aren't enough hours in a day.
I’m really good at
Alienating myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Indie & small press lit. Novellas and overly complex books, and oddly little in the middle. I also have a strong appreciation for short stories and poetry. My favorite writer is Richard Brautigan. My book collection is starting to get large-ish. Lean toward the heavily literary.

Film tastes are all over the place from mumblecore to over-the-top kung fu flicks. I was a film school nerd. As for TV, Trek is always a winner. Louie, Broad City, Game of Thrones, uh, I mean, I like a lot of things. Passion for cartoons. I could honestly watch El Chapulin Colorado all day long (but only with the subtitles off.)

Music tastes change too often, but right now, I think my favorite band is Yo La Tengo. Minutemen. Sonic Youth. I prefer complicated to simple, generally.

If we're going to be honest here, my least favorite food is probably asparagus, and my favorite food is probably cheap whiskey.
The six things I could never do without
Sunsets, clear lakes, travel by sea, new ideas, sense of adventure, and probably allergy medication.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have a bad habit of obsessing over my company. Usually though, if I'm thinking really deeply, it's because I'm writing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pretending that I don't have to get back to work on Monday.
You should message me if
If you are bored. If you are a misfit.
