My self-summary
Joshua once built a golem out of grave-robbed parts and uneaten Halloween candy. By strange chance, this golem is fueled on rejection slips. Every day it begs and it pleads, “PLEASE, KIND SIR, KEEP ME ALIVE!” And so Joshua writes. You can thank anyone who accepts his work for allowing the poor golem to go hungry for another day.

Joshua is from Chicago, but has hopped from place to place, now near Durham, where he lives with a one-eyed, black cat named Raven. He has a fondness for fedoras, finds happiness in voodoo doll smiles, does a pretty mean Christopher Walken impersonation, and once upon a road trip dreary, wrote a Blues song about necrophilia. He also writes fascinating internet profiles in the third person.
What I’m doing with my life
UPDATE: My home is currently in Durham, NC, but work has me visiting Singapore and Chengdu, China.

A few years back, I made the move from Chicago-land to Oslo, Norway, to work as a writer fora computer game company. Then, I moved from Oslo to Montreal for more video game writing. Now I'm in Durham, NC. I keep bouncing about and writing...
I’m really good at
Inspiring a laugh - magic tricks - listening (I have a bartender ear) - laughing off bad things - entertaining children - working with animals - startling or spooking people - making Halloween costumes - Christopher Walken impersonations - writing (I hope!) - massages
The first things people usually notice about me
I like fedoras. The computer memes will never stop me!

There are tiny haunted houses inside my eyes.

I am THE accessory for a black dress.

Six things I could never do without
Condoms and a rhyming dictionary.

Oh, right. Six things.

Five condoms and a rhyming dictionary.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where the monster under my bed went.
On a typical Friday night I am
Whistlin' past the graveyard...

Writing or reading with my one-eyed black cat familiar (more often, we cuddle).

Playing a table top RPG.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish I had something cool to admit having a tail or something...

...sometimes, when I have to wear a suit, I wear a Batman T-Shirt (with the symbol on the chest) under my dress shirt, in the hopes that at about the time I have to leave whatever event I’m at, someone will call my cell phone, interupting the conversation I’m having, and I’ll answer it, saying, “What?...Slow!” (regardless of who called) and then pulling open my dress shirt, revealing the bat symbol, and running off muttering, “I must shed my everyday disguise!”...

...I was once on stage with Jenna Jameson (it's a long story...but ask if you're curious about it)...but I guess that was more public than private...

...I sometimes talk to my pet snake, Lenore, knowing full well that snakes have no ears...

...when I was a kid, I'd always check behind the shower curtain of any bathroom I entered, affraid of what might be behind there, before I could do anything else. Now, I still check, not out of fear, but out of a well worn, and comfortable compulsion...

...still not sure why this website says I'm "less loving" than other guys. Maybe there was a question like, "Would you throwh a flaming jar of napalm on a newborn kitten?" and I accidentally clicked the wrong answer. I don't know...
You should message me if
You're a night owl. You think wax seals on letters are the coolest thing ever. Gamers, geeks, and eccentrics are always welcome.

Those in polyamorous relationships are especially encouraged to say hi. I don't have a jealous bone, and I interact well with primary partners.
The two of us
