My self-summary
This is a bit like some Film Noir movie where someone wakes up rubbing their head looking around a strange room trying to figure out where they are and how they got there. Then through a series of blurry flash backs the pieces start to come together and just when they’re starting to figure it out a stranger walks into the room. Well that’s where the story seems to be right now. I’m waiting for that stranger (you?) to walk into the room to help put the pieces together, or possibly I’m the stranger that walks into your room.

My life’s not really that blurry. I’m a positive caring friend with a good sense of humor.... really things aren't that blurry. I’m a designer, teacher, and appreciate creativity.... things are slowly clearing up. I’m active, like to run and stay healthy.... ow, that bump on the head. I enjoy laughter, performing improv, and like people who also laugh.... the lights are getting brighter. I was raised in Chicago, but have lived in San Francisco a long time.... oh that’s where I’m at. Now all I need is the right person to walk into the room for the story to continue. Well I’m sure you have your own story too, and like me, you’re looking to move onto the next scene. If your communicative, have a sense of humor, appreciate creativity, happy with what you’ve accomplished in your life and plan on doing more, it would be great if you walked into my room.... I think the blurry part has stopped.

Metaphorical hits on the head are OK.

I guess it boils down to the fact that you know some things I don't know and I know a few things you don't know and there are probably a few things we both know. Who knows if things work out we can learn some new things together.
What I’m doing with my life
Creative pursuits involving my work as a designer, teaching and improv. Appreciating meaningful conversations and laughter with my friends. Running and living a balanced life. Knowing when and when not to be funny or serious.
I’m really good at
Making people feel at ease. Cracking eggs with one hand.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I always feel pinned down with this sort of question because I’m sure that I’ll forget something. Certain books always stay with me from Saul Bellow, Somerset Maugham, Camus, Harper Lee, Ralph Ellison, Nabokov. Then Nick Hornby, Paul Auster and David Sedaris are also favorites. Steve Martin and Tina Fey’s books are great windows into creative and funny minds. I always read the paper. I worked my way through school as a newspaper printer so the ink runs through my veins.

Too many movies to list but I can see Groundhog Day over and over again. Television is so great right now with Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Shameless and many more.

I have eclectic music taste but a soft spot for punk and post punk Iggy Pop, Lou Reed. Also like Arcade Fire, Radiohead, White Stripes, The Shins, Wilco. Various Jazz and Classical fit in well too. NPR but it's not easy to dance to.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When chilling replaced hanging for relaxing. I don't think my parents ever chilled a day their lives but I know they've relaxed plenty of times. What's the age cut off for saying chilling anyway?
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A cookie package I designed is on an episode of Seinfeld but I forgot which one so whenever I see a rerun of the show I end up watching it to the point where they show Jerry's kitchen. If my package isn't on top of his refrigerator I turn the show off – my vicarious and somewhat pathetic15 minutes of fame.
You should message me if
You would like to.
