My self-summary
I'm a 23 year old marketing communications major at Emerson College, working at CeX in Downtown Crossing and (finally) coming to terms with the idea of being a self-sustaining, single adult in Boston. I love cars, computers, and Lady Gaga, and don't think that there's anything particularly unusual about that. I'm a happy person because I don't think life is worth going through sad, and I derive joy from anything and everything; I love to laugh, to share happy moments with others, and finding people who share my level of dysfunction while still hoping and working for the best. I also have the biggest tongue you've (I promise) ever seen. That's not supposed to be, I don't know, raunchy, but forewarned is forearmed, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to pin down my favorite shade of green; exploring the finer points of haute ramen cuisine; coming up with schemes for inserting myself into Lady Gaga's entourage as her new marketing director; appreciating the little things.
I’m really good at
Expressing myself in formal/professional settings--I enjoy public speaking and PowerPoint presentations, and I'm still trying to figure out what part of my brain broke for that to happen. Incorporating my creative side into my daily life in ways that surprise even myself. Fixing your computer (I won't begrudge you it, but if you give me something caffeinated I'll be more than thrilled!). Being there for friends, or even strangers when they have no one else to turn to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot, and I get that I'm "too nice" a lot--it's sincere, and I'm not REALLY Rob Lowe's character on Parks and Recreation, but I've just picked up in life that there are plenty of people worth meeting and getting to know out there and it's not always obvious who they are, so being nice to everyone I meet has been fantastic for finding those diamonds in the rough. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If you've gotten this far, you may have noticed Lady Gaga popping up more than a few times--God help me but I love her to death. I enjoy a variety of genres of music, but pop has a special place in my heart and no one does it better; beyond that, I'm in awe of her self-made-woman status and unstoppable good spirit and sense of humor. Love her or hate her, she became exactly who she wanted to be, and I don't think ANYONE can shake a stick at that.

Uh, but, I promise there is more to me than that. I love the Strokes, the Shins (and Broken Bells), Feist, Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Karen O was the first person I was FANATICAL over, and other pop-rock innovators. Joanna Newsom, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Neko Case are a few artists who I've connected with more and more as I've grown older. Oh, and I can't wait for Robyn's triumphant comeback in the US--it's gonna happen!

My favorite movie is Lost in Translation, both for the performances by the leads and Sofia Coppola's unwavering artistic vision. I do love all her other films, but LIT's ahead by a long shot. Oh, and do yourself a favor and go see Bridesmaids--if you've seen Kristen Wiig on SNL, you already know it'll be worth it.

I like Ray Bradbury and Philip K. Dick, I couldn't get enough of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, but Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go probably affected me more than any other book in the last 10 years.

Food? I like it. Almost all of it. I've made my peace with non-stop snacking, which is the only reason I'm not a blimp, but when it's time to go hard in the kitchen, I'm your man.
Six things I could never do without
1. My friends & family
2. Nature and our best friends (animals!)
3. The internet
4. Music
5. Mystery flavors
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Where is Osama Bin Laden?" (I'm a little out of touch)
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to have a good time, and I enjoy the more conventional ways of doing that--going drinking, dancing, partying, what have you. But with the right person, I can have a good time doing pretty much anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of my earliest memories is asking my mom for my OWN Belle (from Beauty & the Beast) Barbie Doll. Yes, I got it, they're not barbarians, gosh. No, I don't still have it, I burned it and drank the molten plastic when I became a real man.
You should message me if
You've seen anything remotely interesting or intriguing in my profile. I'm not so great at expressing who I am succinctly and precisely, so the only way you'll ever REALLY get to know who I am is if you give me a shot! Don't worry, I only bite if you ask me to.
