My self-summary
I moved to Philly at the end of twenty eleven after growing up in Kentucky, Indiana, and Western PA, and going to grad school in Florida.

Most of the people I know here now are old friends from undergrad or in the theatre community. Would like to expand my social circle with new interesting/ creative people.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a small online sports apparel company. I also act in plays sometimes and do other stuff in that realm.

I like walking around the city and imagining stories about people I don't know.

I like hearing people's stories and asking them about where they've lived and why they've moved and how they've reconciled their dreams with their practicalities.
I’m really good at
Meeting new people and asking them questions about what they do and saying "Oh yeah, I read an article about that one time, so what do you think about this?"
The first things people usually notice about me
That guy's funny.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The last two novels I really liked were 11/22/63 by Stephen King and The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach. I also read most of Nate Silver's book The Signal and the Noise and was pretty into it, but not into it enough to finish it.

Top 5 movies, we're going to go with Funny People (Apatow), Pulp Fiction (Tarantino), Almost Famous, (Crowe), Margaret, (Lonergan), and if we're going to being really honest, probably Your Highness (David Gordon Green)

Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Simpsons, 30 Rock are all time fave TV shows. Recently BoJack Horseman, Key and Peele, Amy Schumer, Louie.

I need more new music in my life. I like the Avett Brothers, Bright Eyes, acoustic alt-southern rock kind of stuff.
A lot of the Hamilton soundtrack and Jason Isbell this year.
The six things I could never do without
the internet, my friends, jokes, other people's opinions, big plans, afternoons of eating and drinking and wandering the city that stretch late into the evening
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Starting a theatre company. Changing the world. My family. Money, politics, right and wrong. The person I would like to be and how I might become him.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not at home I am out with friends, carrying on, seeing a show or a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just put Your Highness in my top five movies. That's as intimate as I get before the first date.
You should message me if
If you want to get some drinks and talk about what we want to be when we grow up. If you're smart and creative and not too cynical.
