My self-summary
I'm a black coffee, neat whiskey, "Bat Out of Hell" on the record player kind of guy. I will never stop using the Oxford comma. I enjoy writing, but don't know if I consider myself a writer. I love a good story, and usually like the bad ones too. Friend of the Pod. My grandmother once called me "so liberal it's sad." I have a sock subscription, and I'm pretty pleased with how it's working out so far.

A North Carolinian by birth, I spent time in Chicago, Japan, and New York before finally arriving here in San Francisco. I think the burritos might keep me here for quite a while. That and the law school.

Lethologica: a psychological disorder that inhibits an individual's ability to articulate his or her thoughts by temporarily forgetting key words, phrases or names in conversation. I don't have it. Usually.
What I’m doing with my life
Winning really important made-up arguments while showering. Fretting a bit, but always aspiring to do and be better. Job-wise, I help make sure video games get made by day and attend law school by night. Sleep is a fun thing sometimes.
I’m really good at
This and this.

There's also the cello thing. Pretty handy in the kitchen, too. I can make a mean pancake.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either the vestigial twin growing from my shoulder or the prehensile tail.

I dunno...glasses? Somewhat crooked nose? Luxurious facial hair? Nah, definitely the tail.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Kafka on the Shore, Cat's Cradle, Slouching Towards Bethlehem, Good Omens, The Master and Margarita, The Name of the Rose, and One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Currently reading: The Social Contract

Arrested Development, Bob's Burgers, QI, Brooklyn 99, Peep Show, Rick and Morty, Steven Universe. Not ashamed at the number of cartoons in that list. Currently rewatching West Wing. Again.

Ikiru, Breathless, Lost in Translation, Labyrinth, Rocky Horror Picture Show, and basically anything that would play at the Alamo Drafthouse's Weird Wednesdays is good in my book. Even The Room. Actually, especially The Room.

Most recent movie watched: Wonder Woman

Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Django Reinhardt, Joan Baez, Meat Loaf, Ghostpoet, Bowie, and Oingo Boingo. Old Crow Medicine Show's "Wagon Wheel" is permanently engraved on my heart.

Breakfast food.

Podcasts: MBMBAM, Adventure Zone, The Weeds, Pod Save America, Hardcore History
Six things I could never do without
1. Caffeine
2. A toothbrush
3. Passport
4. Grim Grinning Ghosts
5. Dad jokes
6. Good conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Interactive media, progressivism, stories, travel, games, and how I could one day swing having a dog.
On a typical Friday night I am
Gyring and gimbling in the wabe.

By "gyring" I of course mean "Netflix," while "gimbling" I believe is Old English for "drinking Charles Shaw," and "wabe" roughly translates to "my couch."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I thought I was Ravenclaw, but I'm actually Slytherin.
You should message me if
If this or this thrills your heart like it does mine.

If you have a good book recommendation or are willing to reveal your favorite karaoke song.
