My self-summary
Hey there,

Just moved to San Diego. I'm stoked to meet new people and explore the city.

In general, I spend a lot of my time in the office, but I'm lucky enough to like what I do and the folks with whom I work.

When they let me out, I try to stay active. I particularly enjoy backpacking, sailing, and riding my motorcycle. When I'm laying low, I like reading, writing (for pleasure rather than for work), and heading out to whatever sounds like fun.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend of lot of time working. When I'm not at the 9-5, I'm putting hours in on a new business or I'm working on this body of fiction I'd someday like to finish.

I make a conscious effort to keep my quality of life high. There's so much to see out there, and I'd like to see it all.
I’m really good at
Making awesome meals from random leftovers.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes get a lot of compliments.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I wrote my undergrad thesis on postcolonial French lit, so I have a lot of favorite authors in that area. I'm a huge fan of a lot of the canonical po-mo stuff: David Foster Wallace, Don Delillo, Beckett, etc. I also dig stuff that's a little lighter; Ender's Game was one of my favorite books ever.

My taste in movies tends to lean toward dark humor. I like Terry Gilliam stuff. Wes Anderson, Michel Gondry (admittedly typical hipster stuff). Huge fan of David Lynch (although I admit that my seeing humor in his work is a little unusual).

I like a lot of different music. From Tom Waits to Nine Inch Nails to Fleet Foxes to electronica. And quite a bit that isn't coming to mind immediately. My taste in music is largely contextual: expensively produced hip-hop is great for the gym; a dude with a guitar is great for the park.

Food: just about everything, and I love to cook. Maybe we could throw down in the kitchen some time.
Six things I could never do without
1. Water (the delicious kind or the kind you can jump in / sail across)
2. Me time
3. Talent
4. Pen and paper
5. A comfortable place to call home
6. Lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Words. I'm a writer, both for my paycheck and for the maintenance of my sanity.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making a point of seeing something I haven't seen before.

Lately, I've been laying low on Fridays so I'm ready to go adventure on Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You so nosy, OKC.
You should message me if
Any of:

You could show me around SD. Or you'd just be down to explore it with me.

You like backpacking.

You know how to sail.

You want to race go-karts, or anything else really. I love stuff that goes fast.

You write well but don't talk about your writing too much.

It's raining and you want to watch a movie.

It's sunny and you want to lounge in a park.

Or if you just want to grab a cup of coffee or a cocktail. I like meeting people, and I feel like you know more about a person in five real-life minutes than through any number of messages. Besides, you were going to go grab a drink anyway.
The two of us
