My self-summary
"There are people. There are stories. The people think they shape the stories, but the reverse is often closer to the truth." - Alan Moore

I love always absorbing new information. I avidly enjoy listening to history podcasts, going down the Wikipedia rabbit hole, and watching random documentaries to learn as much about as many things as possible. I play a lot of history-based games like Civilization and Europa Universalis and love using them as a jumping-point for learning more. So basically if you're on here not for dating but just to find a pub trivia partner, I'm your man.

I love discovering new films (Netflix and Doug Loves Movies were made for me) and new music (college radio alum!), playing instruments, and tabletop boardgaming. I'm pretty into sports and every Kennedy ever.
What I’m doing with my life
Putting my bachelor's degree in government & politics to good use working in DC... at a concert venue/promoter. Drive around the metro and hate all other drivers, buy strange food requests, sell merch. I really love music and being involved with the production of concerts.
I’m really good at
... being more productive when busier, quickly organizing and planning, instantly summoning useless trivia, coming up with mixtapes, making apple sauce from scratch, sending postcards from obscure locations, creating (horribly punny) neologisms, and using the Oxford comma.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The ending of The Catcher in the Rye is horrible. Poe, Crichton, Vonnegut, Orwell, Alan Moore, Palahniuk.

Movies: When Netflixin', I usually search for "quirky." Wes Anderson, Duncan Jones, Woody Allen, Michel Gondy, Terry Gilliam, Sam Raimi. A recent film I enjoyed was Ex Machina.

Television: Hannibal, Agents of SHIELD, Futurama, Boston Legal, Twin Peaks, Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Veep, The Blacklist, Doctor Who, The Amazing Race, The West Wing, Mythbusters, random history things

Music: David Bowie, Weezer, Talking Heads, Oingo Boingo, The Smiths, Radiohead, Nirvana, Muse, Beck. I'm really into alt rock and New Wave.
I usually listen to music as album. The album I keep playing on repeat lately is Rilo Kiley's The Execution of All Things.
Here's my a link to my last.fm profile if you're interested.

Food: Pizza Hut recently released a pizza with a pretzel crust. My life was made.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot about a lot of things. If you hang around me long enough, you'll hear random musings like:

- Did studying Mandarin for two years help me better understand Firefly?
- Did Zach Braff make Garden State just as an excuse to release his mixtape to the masses?
- Would the NSA employee reading my profile and Google search history be interested in drinks this Saturday night?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at work at a concert. If not, watching my girl Ally McBeal be all independent.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Thomas Mars asked me for my phone number.

Lafayette is my historical man crush.
You should message me if
If you're in the Baltimore/Washington area and would like to talk and meet up. Or form a team for the Amazing Race. Or if Bernie Sanders is the love of your life as well.
