My self-summary
Howdy, moved here in 2008. My favorite colour is blue. I take my career seriously. I don't take much else of my life seriously though. There, now you know my life story.

I like this city. I like living and playing in this city. I have no desire to ever step foot outside of the city. Cities make me happy. With that said, it should noted, I don't leave the city unless I'm on a plane or a big train (that is my wordy way of saying I am car free and can't entertain anything outside of the city).

I also run a lot, and cover a lot of ground in this city. I suppose you could say running is fairly important to my life, so it merits being mentioned here. I run for myself, not for races or anything like that.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, but my job is really boring to talk about. But I am happy there, and I enjoy a good work-life balance, so you'll rarely find me crying about it.

Other than that, I'm usually half-assing that I know how to use a camera. Also, because because I'm the friend who is always holding the camera, profile pictures that don't involve me doing something stupid with a beer in my hand are rare. I've tried doing glamor shots by myself, but that always seems to make me look silly.

I'm also on this odd quest to try and visit every Dunkin Donuts in the city. I have no idea how many I've actually been to. For example, if its a lazy Saturday morning, I'll hop on my bike and go cross another off my list.
I’m really good at
folding sheets. Especially fitted ones. I can even fit them back into the weird little zipper plastic bags.
The first things people usually notice about me
my ability to make your soul weep with a bad pun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I sit on a bus and read. Recently finished some more Knut Hamsun (I've been on this odd kick to read all of his books).

I enjoy all sorts of movies from 90 minute "time-wasters" to more serious fare. I have been on this odd old sci-fi kick. You know, Soylent Green, Brazil, and Logans run. That kind of thing.

I'm always a little bit behind, but currently in rotation: Any of the Wolf Parade Derivatives (except Swan Lake, not sure what happened there), Les Savy Fav, the Walkmen, Cloud Nothings and Jay Reatard, Thee Oh Sees, etc. I provide this list only as a survey,so you can get a general ides of what music I'm about.

Also, most of my friends don't tend to share my interests in music, so I'm usually that awkward guy in the corner at shows. Come say hi to me.
The six things I could never do without
1) Music 2) Photography 3) Rice Cakes 4) Jorts 5) The Earl of Bikington / The Sultan of the Streets 6) Croutons
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Weather patterns. I have no idea why, but I'm serious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not at home. Even if it means I walk around for a few hours, sleep in an alley or yell at passing motorists, I refuse to sit on the couch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let's play a fun game, you get to guess which category has the most occurrences: a) tattoos of states b) knee surgeries and c) times detained by customs

Hint: All have at least one.
You should message me if
You feel like it. I promise I don't bite.

or have a marmot (not the coat).
