My self-summary
I'm a pretty straight forward guy. I have a teenage daughter that ages me at 1.5X regular time. I like baby goats and those Geico raccookin' adverts. I make friends easily with people that make friends easily. I trust everyone until I can't. I like the unbiased happiness of dogs and the prebiased happiness of children. Inappropriate and funny are like peas and carrots.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm re-purposing it with a more relaxed viewpoint. Quality time with my kid, myself, my friends. Putting my heart into what I do and the people and things I hold dear. More specifically? How to light and shoot the perfect portrait, how to make this dang ol geetar sing like a bird. How to write a dialog between a dead man and a blindingly intelligent machine... (Please save your questions for after the talk)
I’m really good at
I point cameras at things and shoot still frames and videos. I play guitar until my roommates tell me not to anymore. I try to write down ideas in hopes that they are still as emotionally moving on paper as they were in my head. Sometimes this works, I suppose it's like trying to explain what you dreamt last night.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ken Wilber, Western Zen, Nick Bostrom
Movies: Blue Valentine, Gummo, Happiness
Shows: Rick and Morty, GoT, Black Mirror
Music? Well this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxJldNitCgA and this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nleRCBhLr3k and well this thing too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awHWColYQ90 oh and this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1bHddYhtDw
Food: Not a foodie. Nutrition over taste... That doesn't mean I eat from a feed bag of protein powder around my neck. It just means that I eat Kale with the fried chicken and try to lay off the carbs. I like this guy a lot in regards to that: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/
The six things I could never do without
My daughter, though if I could trade her in for a baby goat I might consider it.
My Camera
A guitar of some sort.
Something to write ideas onto.
The occasional opportunity to stare deep into the abyss of space.
And a Nalgene bottle to hold water. I'm mostly water, it makes sense.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why space is so so very quiet.
What a smart machine might have to say.
Nostalgia for Democracy
Whether or not a dog has Buddha mind.
Perception and it's grounding or lack thereof in reality
On a typical Friday night I am
Being ridiculously nice to the people who patronize my establishment.
You should message me if
If you tip, like children and puppies, are a decent human being, can kiss without needing a napkin afterwards, take care of your body and mind, and have a sense of humor. (Pro Tip: If you think Dane Cook is hilarious, then you probably don't have one.)
