My self-summary
Although it appears that posting shirtless photos is en vogue, I decided to go against the trend and go pantless. Not in all my photos, of course, but if you can't see me from the waist down, then it's a safe assumption, I'm not wearing pants. Also a good rule of thumb for newscasters.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in marketing. When people hear that, they ask if I'm Don Draper. I usually say, "yes," but honestly, I'm a lot more like Peggy Olsen.

Mastering my stick shift. Finally learned how to drive this year.

Podcasting. It's a lot of work but also a lot of fun.

Improv. It's so much fun having a hobby that makes me laugh so hard I cry. It's also been great for making friends.

Modeling for art classes. It's kind of like therapy. I've never felt more accepted for who I am. I recommend everyone try it.

Furnishing my new place. I couldn't decide on one style so I picked them all. I'm so glad the word "eclectic" exists.
I’m really good at
not dying while I do P90X workouts.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my laugh. I've been told it's infectious. I hope that's in a good way and not in a "bubonic plague" sort of way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Here are a few of my favorites:

Music
Outrun
I also have a small collection of classic jazz albums.

Books
Currently listening to the audio version of "The Martian" and reading a book about design. I'm usually reading/listening to 2-3 books on my night stand and switch from one to other.

My all-time favorite is "World War Z."

TV
Mad Men (in the process of finishing it)

Breaking Bad (my favorite show ever)

Movies
Inglourious Basterds (my favorite movie ever–Nazis, violence, Quentin Tarantino, what more could you ask for?)

Food
I love pretty much everything. I only cook one thing really well: grilled cheese. But I'll wager just about anything it's the best grilled cheese you've ever had. If you're not convinced yet, let me just say this, "Bacon is involved."
The six things I could never do without
1) Jackets (light, heavy, bomber, denim... dammit I love a good piece of outerwear)
2) People who instantly make my day better
3) Interesting (and potentially useless) trivia
4) Peanut Butter
5) Comedy
6) A bed so comfortable it makes you never want to get out of it (aka my bed)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why everyone is sharing their Myers-Briggs personality type. Is my profile not enough? Why should I let society confine me to four letters? Is this just another way for THE MAN to keep me down? Does my tinfoil hat go with these pants?
On a typical Friday night I am
at a bar watching Netflix or snuggled up on a couch having drinks with friends. Everyone else is doing it wrong.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I take my clothes off for money and I love mariachi bands. The two are often unrelated but not always.
You should message me if
Eddie Murphy said it best in Coming to America, "I want a woman who arouses my intellect as well as my loins."

Extra points if you're a snappy dresser. Yes, I used the word "snappy." I may be time traveler from the '40s.
