My self-summary
Hi, I'm Andrew. I am a pretty passionate guy. I work hard at my job, but I work even harder for my career and future. That's not to say I'm all business, however, because I certainly love to have a good time pretty much always.

I try to be good to others as much as possible. I try to be as genuine, trusting and forgiving as I can without being a sucker.

I firmly believe that there is no such thing as a lost cause.

I thrive off of the kindness of others and I do all in my power to perpetuate and encourage it. In a relationship I am always committed, otherwise there wouldn't be a relationship in the first place. I am more than happy to cater to the needs of others, however, and of course I almost always prefer a good compromise over anything.

Most days I am just trying to get by. I have big dreams of becoming a filmmaker and having a career in production of any kind. But I'm also grounded in reality and know that respect takes you a long way and it's all about who you know and how you treat them that takes you through this life best.
What I’m doing with my life
In essence I am a hard worker and a driven individual. My job is monotonous but I work really hard at it. When I'm not working, I am usually working on a film set or doing something creative with video, photography, or writing.

Beyond the day to day, my long term plans involve writing the next great American novel, winning an Oscar, and telling Bill O'Reilly exactly where he can shove it.

I would love to become a film director in the long run, but I've also considered working in video game development as a cinematic artist.
I’m really good at
Writing and communicating with people, on the computer and in actual real life!

I'm also good with cameras, both photo and video, and try to use them as much as possible.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm the kind of guy that people always seem to recognize, even if they have absolutely no idea who I am. I either look like someone's nephew or neighbor or best friend or John Belushi... The list is endless.

Basically, if you ever meet me, you'll probably think you know me from somewhere...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I'm open to anything new out there. Tried and true favorites are alternative rock, indie pop, and folk (Dylan, not Dixie).

Here are some bands: The Flaming Lips, Neutral Milk Hotel, Bon Iver, Destroyer, Fun., Joanna Newsom, Mountain Goats, Dirty Projectors, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend, Mos Def, Dead Weather, and on and on and on.

Books: Currently reading: "Against the Day" by Thomas Pynchon

Movies: I like stuff by Wes Anderson, Michel Gondry, and Charlie Kaufmann. "The Fifth Element" & "Fight Club" are permanent favorites...

I also love zombie movies and old horror films.

Food: I will try anything twice.
Six things I could never do without
The Internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...movies I want to write. Everything I see is funneled through a cinematic lens in my mind. Sometimes it's a curse, because I find that I never actually write anything down, and sometimes it's a blessing, because it allows me to notice intricacies and patterns in life that make it all the much more enjoyable.

Beyond that hipsteresque answer, I usually think about what's coming next. Sometimes I find it hard to live in the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually working and/or having a good time with good friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once ate chocolate frosting straight from the can.
You should message me if
If you're someone who enjoys creativity.

If you're someone who likes to talk about anything and everything, and isn't afraid of being exactly who they they are.

If you're someone who enjoys the subtleties of life.

If you're a pirate.

If you've got an escape route planned for the zombie apocalypse. Seriously, you guys, I need some contingency plans here.

If you dig movies. If you don't dig movies you might as well just buzz off!

If you're not afraid. I won't know who you are until you speak up! I could describe myself 80 different ways and you still wouldn't know who I am until you give me a shout. I don't bite!
The two of us
