My self-summary
A post-nomadic, post-hipster who's found a delightful home in Silver lake, Joseph seems to have graduated from his party-happy 20's and found his stride as he propels head-long into his 4th decade. Settling into a life of value and effort appears to be the soup du jour, and all he wants to know is "Who's coming with me."
What I’m doing with my life
I won't bore you with the specifics of my line of work (insurance), but I'm my own boss and I work hard.

I'm a founder of a local theatre company, I work on plays and such. I also play drums and careen in and out of various cover bands. These are hobbies, and I keep them so to preserve the joy I have for them.

I also run and workout, and try to eat well. I've started learning French (started!) and I travel to Mexico a lot.
I’m really good at
I've got a great sense of direction and I'm a great driver, which makes a killer combination. Argument, not as a disagreement but as a process of reasoning. I think I'm funny (at least people tell me all the time "you think you're so funny.") Keeping and fostering friendships. I've got a group of core friends that is over 10 years old. I can also take care of a girl on the dance floor.
The first things people usually notice about me
At first I usually appear very serious (this is usually me thinking or just totally neutral). People also think I'm smart, but only because I keep my mouth shut until I have something to say. I try to think before I speak and choose my words well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
-Dostoevsky and Tolstoy, Sartre and Camus, nonfiction, and Stephen King is a guilty pleasure. I think Franzen is properly rated.
-Ghostbusters, Noises Off, Glengarry Glen Ross, Four Rooms
-Can I say 80s movies on cable that I turn on half way through?
-Generally classic rock, jazz, 90s rock.
-Spicy (Indian and Mexican), I prefer my pasta cooked over al dente, Wine dry over fruity, IPA over stout, generally savory over sweet.

On a typical Friday night I am
Going out on Friday night makes the weekend feels longer. (Fact.) I like trying new bars. I like art experiences of all types: seeing plays, museums, music, random stuff, I'm down to check out anything. Experience is paramount. You never know how something will hit you. I will, on occasion, be too tired and will stay in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sing! was the best film of the year.
You should message me if
