My self-summary
I'm mostly a mess but I'm funny and I can draw. Feminist and body positive too.

Earlier this year a dream day job fell into my lap where I get to draw and create cool things for a living, full time - ask me about it sometime! On the weekends you can find me serving drinks and teaching board games at The Loft.

Mostly looking for friends and seeing where it goes. Let's talk about interesting things!

Not a sporty guy but I enjoy baseball mostly because it's the nerdiest of the sports.
What I’m doing with my life
Holding it together, sort of.

Making jokes.

Telling stories.

Working on fun projects.

Trying to figure out what the rest of my life is shaped like.

Worrying it's shaped like something pointy.

I'm trying to expand the ways I spend my time, I ain't no one trick pony and I wanna see what kinda mind expanding trouble I can get into. Any ideas?
I’m really good at
Sprucing up anecdotes.
Telling tall tales.
Moving my eyebrows seperately. Remembering obscure boardgame rules. Staying in character.
Making pithy speeches.
Saying the right thing at the right time.
Hugging.
Catching cats.
Running fun events!
Organizing theme parties and group halloween costumes.
Taking it out and chopping it up.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most people who know me know that there is no difference between my
indoor voice and my outdoor voice, so you can usually hear me
before you see me. Like a reverse lightning bolt, or
something.

And they also say "Boy, that guy looks a bit like Dan Akroyd in the
fantastic film 'Ghostbusters'!" To which I say: "Thanks, I think?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Perdido Street Station by China Mieville, The Time Travellers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. Hellboy and it's spin offs.

Any and all gibbering, cyclopean works of the great H.P. Lovecraft.

TV:Better Call Saul, Doctor Who, Rick and Morty, Venture Bros, Batman: The Animated Series, Parks and Recreation, Community Battlestar Galactica, Master of None (Most of the Thursday night NBC lineup!)

Movies - The Iron Giant, The Prestige, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones,

Music - The Eels, The Weakerthans, STARS, Django Reinhardt, Frank Sinatra, A.C. Newman, Ben Folds, The Lumineers just ask me for more.

Food - Apples. Sushi. poutine, chinese
Six things I could never do without
Good conversation.
My family.
A story to tell.
Music, oh music.
Mom hugs.
Pants.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Places that exist only in my head. "How am I gonna get this all done?" Philosophical mumbo jumbo. What colour goblins should be. Are my friends happy? Am I?
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately I've been working Friday nights, but I'm also likely playing D&D like some kinda nerd.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dunno, I'd spill the beans, but all that does is wreck some perfectly good beans.
You should message me if
You want to hang out and make things, like art or comedy routines or anything really. You like one or more of the things I like. You have an interesting but useless piece of info to share. You're funny.
