i moved to seattle in april. i was born and raised in st. louis and had been living there "professionally" for ten years and things just weren't going the way i expected them to. i was working on a project with a startup company (i know, everyone has a startup company) that wasn't going anywhere, i was working a contract job at a soul crusher to pay my bills and that was coming to an end. all my friends started having kids, girls kept telling me "no" when i asked them out, and people kept getting shot. since i was going to be unemployed looking for work anyway, i figured i might as well be unemployed looking for work in seattle instead of unemployed looking for work in st. louis.

i recently began waiting tables at a busy south lake union restaurant. i'm not a fan.
I’m really good at

also, TV's andy daly performed an improv scene on matt besser's improv4humans podcast based off an intro question that i wrote

there wasn't a section for "my proudest moment" so i'm putting that here
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
i stopped curating my own music collection now that i am within KEXP's broadcast range.

i was raised on a healthy diet of MST3k and the marx bros., monty python and the talking heads.

i've read a lot of isaac asimov. he loves to use the word "sardonic".

i've also read a lot of edgar allen poe. he loves to use the word "ejaculate".

On a typical Friday night I am
trying to climb mount rainier, one tallboy at a time.

in seattle i'm a fan of:
watching B-movies with a pitcher of PBR at the tin hat in ballard
seeing some ridiculous karaoke at shanghai room in greenwood
playing bubble bobble at add-a-ball in fremont
seeing metal bands and punk bands play at the kraken in u-district
seeing live in-studio sessions at KEXP
shouting "repo man" quotes at the bartender at cozy nut in greenwood

and anyplace that has pinball.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i have a favorite screwdriver
