My self-summary
Sort of like if a ridiculously optimistic kid and a morbid teenager had to operate the body of a very confused adult. Enneagram type 7. Gonzo is my Spirit Muppet. Continuously surprised at what past me leaves in present me's jacket pocket. Bitter cynic with a "Sci-fi & Spiritual Inspiration" folder on his desktop.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm mostly an actor, mostly on screen, who also messes around with visual art and sounds. Beginning to do freelance sound recording/design and directing.
I’m really good at
Interviews, trip-sitting, staring contests, eating contests, throwing myself into things, not dropping my phone in the toilet ever.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea anymore. But strangers tend to find me easy to talk to. Old ladies at the bagel place flirt with me often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently reading: The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin. Also dig DFW, Ballard, Clark Ashton Smith, Debord. I'm not very academic or well read, tbqh. Not that kind of brain. But I love hearing people talk about it.

Comics - Minimum Wage, Black Hole, The Maxx, Blankets, Lint, lots of student work/independent comics. Just now getting into Junji Ito's horror manga (can't believe how long I've been missing out!)

Also dusty old water stained synthesizer manuals I find on ebay.

Movies: The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Cemetery Man, Gummo, Eraserhead, Fargo, Evil Dead 2, The Five Obstructions, Mr. Lonely, American Movie, Phantasm, Nightmare on Elm St. 1 & 3, Songs from the Second Floor, Kubrick, John Waters, Coen Bros., - I love and appreciate many more movies than this. This is just sort of a taste sampler.

Music: Alien Sex Fiend, The Books, Nick Drake, Crash Course in Science, Timber Timbre, Daniel Johnston, Grimes, Crystal Castles, Bauhaus, John Maus, Joy Division, The Residents, R. Stevie Moore, Jeffrey Lewis The Legendary Pink Dots, Tunng, Units, Fad Gadget, Siouxsie and the Banshees Nervous Gender Wire (etc.)

Television: Chris Gethard Show, Baskets, Over the Garden Wall, Steven Universe, Bojack Horseman, The Maxx, Parks and Rec, Community, Bob's Burgers, Slings & Arrows.

Food: Pasta. Lots of it. More pasta. More.
Six things I could never do without
My closest friends. Creative outlets. Other weirdos. Thunderstorms. Long swooshy coats. Blankets.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
“All things pass, all things, that is, but mystery.”
― Rikki Ducornet

Consciousness thinking about consciousness.

Sub-consciousness

Daydreaming about owning a trailer and some bees, even though I know nothing about these things.

Or striking rich and owning a shelter for abandoned parrots.

Humans, animals, monsters.

What to message you based on your endearing but minimal profile about how much you hate it on here.

How many awesome people have died.

Light and sounds.

How we're just complicated matter that somehow thinks and bonds with other matter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up with friends, practicing theremin, or picking up a new hobby.
You should message me if
You're smart, hilarious, and weird. You feel existential dread on the regs but navigate it pretty well. You like putting expectations aside and just getting to know new people.
