My self-summary
I wanted to be either a rapper or cartoonist when I grew up. There's still time.
What I’m doing with my life
It's important to me to help make my corner of the world a better one. So I throw myself into my friendships, work hard at my gig, take classes to broaden myself, record a silly podcast that I hope makes people laugh, give back, and always always always stay open.
I’m really good at
Listening. Getting rid of things I don't need. Lending a hand. Improvising. Enthusiastically discovering. Catching things I've dropped before they hit the floor. Going to the park (or beach) with a sandwich. Accurately deploying gerunds. Singing karaoke (theatrics division).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll pay more attention to them than my phone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
One Hundred Years of Solitude. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. East of Eden. David Foster Wallace + George Saunders' nonfiction. Calvin and Hobbes. The Road. The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. Winterdance. Flow.

Radiolab. This American Life. 99% Invisible.

Breaking Bad. Friday Night Lights. Scrubs. Game of Thrones.

Tom Waits. Daft Punk. OutKast. White Stripes. A Tribe Called Quest. Kanye West. Jay-Z. LCD Soundsystem. J. Dilla.

Non-self-righteous vegetarian (you should go ahead and enjoy that steak). Otherwise, all of it.
The six things I could never do without
Challenges
Purpose
My best friends
Pocket notebook, pen
Simplicity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to figure that thing out so I can explain it. Having less, doing more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe running by the lake, maybe drinking some whiskey with a friend, maybe Settlers of Catan, maybe a concert, maybe catching a plane, maybe relaxing with a book. Depends on the company, so what are you into?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once misspelled "dog" in a spelling bee.
You should message me if
You feel great in jeans and a worn T-shirt.
You appreciate the thoughtful sitting side-by-side with the absurd.
You want to go to the park (or beach) with a sandwich.
You're you.
