My self-summary
A recent re-transplant, moved back to Metro Detroit after being away for a year, finding out nobody knows Detroit's gotten nicer and Henry Ford isn't treated with the same kind of reverence.

I have a sarcastic sense of humor. But I turn that off when necessary.

I wrote/directed three short films that The 48 Hour Film Project described all three as "Meeting submittal requirements".
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work full-time in an office where I hone my writing and editing skills, although to be honest, really it's honed my discretionary Netflix viewing and Sudoku solutions skills.

I use Twitter as a test audience for my comedic material. Its easier and cheaper than going to the comedy clubs and hearing crickets.
I’m really good at
Being humorous. I can easily break the ice and make anyone feel more comfortable. But I hate it when someone demands I tell a joke.

Trivia. It's one of those things where you're happy you've won gift cards out of the deal, but then when you realize that you won it by sitting in a slightly darkened room and knowing that the fountain that they dance around in during the theme song to "Friends" is the same fountain that Charleton Heston falls into when he gets shot in "Last Man on Earth"...and it takes some of the bragging rights away from it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can hold down a conversation like nobody's business.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Screenwriting for Fun and Profit, America: The Book, I Am America (and You Can Too!), David Sedaris, World War Z, Zombie Survival Guide, Zombie Spaceship Wasteland.

Movies: Early-era and more recent Woody Allen movies, Hitchcock films (Except for "Hitchcock" the Will Smith movie and "Hitchcock" the Anthony Hopkins version) comedies mostly, a lot of indie films, Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride, and The Room, because its the total opposite of a perfect film, yet still amazing.

Music: kind of a tricky one. A lot of old stuff (Sam Cooke, The Beatles, some Motown, Otis Redding, Queen, early bluesy Rolling Stones, blues music in general, Billie Holliday) a few Top 40 songs at any given time, and a lot of indie bands (Detroit Cobras, Those Transatlantics, Bishop Allen, Heartless Bastards, Little Joy, etc) I'm all over the map. I listen to anything really but country music.

Shows: John Oliver, Daily Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Real Time, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Archer, Family Guy, The Simpsons, and Spaced. I'm wholly aware that a majority of these are no longer on the air, but still. Classics are classics for a fairly good reason.
Six things I could never do without
Sarcasm/Sense of humor
Comedy, appropriate or not
The ability to pad lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Reworking the stand-up routine.

Current events and/or pop culture (Which are very entangled during this election cycle.
On a typical Friday night I am
After a good week? With friends. Bad week? Same, but a bar with stronger drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The song "You're So Vain" was written...by me.

Was voted "Most" in high school, and was the highest ranking non-Canadian, caucasian male in the "Big Man on Campus" contest. Just six spots shy of winning.
You should message me if
You picked up on the high levels of sarcasm in this profile. Or if the whim strikes you, I'd guess.
