My self-summary
I feel obliged complain, at least for a moment, about how painful the act of describing oneself really can be. Essentially a dating site holds a gun to your head and says, "Figure out how to describe yourself in such a way that is interesting, honest, appealing, funny, charming, etc. or else BAM! You'll die lonely and unloved.. But really no pressure big guy. Oh did I forget to mention that we'll reward you if you use 1000 words or more?" No pressure indeed (and don't fucking call me big guy you bastard). Initially i was inclined to balk at the thought of encapsulating the magnificence that is me within 1000 measly words. But as I stared down the barrel of my summarized existence, having poked around in my life looking for every little gem of personality and polishing it to at least a near glimmer, I still came up short. I thought to myself "Shit, am I boring or something? Should I start to talk about my cats? (too late apparently) Maybe there's something wrong with me." And lets face it, there certainly is something wrong with me, but only in the best way possible. ANYWAY, here's a fat (but apparently not fat enough) slab of what I think I'm all about.

After growing up in a small rural town in Western New York I ventured to Boston to become a writer! I went to Emerson College and wrote many things of varying quality, mean while doing other college-y things like drinking heavily and generally fucking around.

It has been a few years since then and I have gone from working at an Apple store (that’s right, my job title used to be “Genius”), to working as an IT guy. Long story short, my employment for the past few years have equated to various levels of technological/psychological therapy performed upon people who are in emotional states lying somewhere in between vein bursting rage and walk-in-front-of-traffic despair. But seriously, it hasn’t been all that bad so far.

Out side of work I spend a lot of my time reading, writing, cooking, drinking, doing yoga, doing nerdy things and generally hanging out. Oh and I spend a fair amount of time doing work as the creative director for the craft beer company I help run.

As far as me as a person goes.... that’s the hard part. I'm definitely a bit of a nerd, that at least is pretty easy to figure out. I like to think that I’m pretty pretty funny, but I'm admittedly biased. I like to think of myself as a generally kind person. I think that I am at my happiest during good long conversations. And I am really getting tired of saying “I” so often. So that's it for now.

Working a 9-5 job, trying to finish my novel, helping get an amazing beer company off the ground, riding my bike, volunteering, doing yoga.

I'm just going to say I am terrible at choosing favorites, but I'll give it a shot.

Just about anything Neil Gaiman, I practically hero-worship that crazy bastard Warren Ellis (especially Transmetropolitan) The Song of Ice and Fire series, William Gibson (of the pantheon of cyberpunk gods), Neil Stephenson, really any good cyberpunk (if you have a recommendation please let me know.) Chuck Palahniuk, Dave Eggers, Hunter S. Thompson... it keeps going
