I'm a piranha. I live in the Amazon.
Thanksgiving is the best holiday. If you don't agree, let me convince you. I graduated from University of Wisconsin, and moved here to avoid winter and really crotchety people. I am always looking for new and exciting things around the city ; so if you're an expert, message me. My midwestern blood mandates a six-pack to unleash my true (bright and fun!) colors.

I'm trying to fit a sense of childhood wonder back in my life, by living like Karl Pilkington with a slight Billy Chenowith twist. This may help. The last three years for Halloween I've gone as Richie Tenenbaum, GreenMan / Night Man, and Chris Hanson.
What I’m doing with my life
Searching for adventure; making mischief; meddling around and causing some trouble. I am heading to grad school in the near future, so I am trying to make the most of my free time while I have it.
I’m really good at
In addition to my encyclopedic knowledge of amusement parks, I'm pretty darn good at helping senior citizens cross roads, being courteous to strangers, making mean faces at children while their parents aren't looking, photobombing, making people laugh in completely inappropriate times, pub trivia, and spelling bees.
The first things people usually notice about me
Beard/mustache/scruff/plaid/glasses (they are not a fashion choice, I'm blind).
The six things I could never do without.
1) Meat. I'm an omnivore leaning more towards herbivore than carnivore, but I will never be able to give this up. Bacon and beef brisket were discovered for the sole purpose of making people happy. Despite this, I get along with both vegetarians and vegans alike.
3) F402 Zebra Pen + Moleskine Notepad
4) DSLR (ever changing)
5) My family (especially my beagle)
6) Disneyland Annual Pass
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A glorious day that Comic Sans MS will be outlawed, and the possibility that I've contracted a brain parasite.
I spend a lot of time thinking about...
Also how to genetically engineer giraffes so they hit a max height of six feet tall. Slap a saddle on one, and you have the perfect pet that you can ride around. How fantastic would it be to walk home, turn on the light and there is a giraffe staring you right in the eye?
Finally, as a universal donor, I feel that my blood will be valued in an extreme castrophe. I stay out of senior centers and hospitals for this very reason.
... and I fall into daydreams where I have to deal with velociraptors.
On a typical Friday night I am
I've come to find that saying 'yes' to any opportunity out there leads to marvelous things; doesn't matter what time or day of the week it is.
I'd rather under promise and over deliver than the opposite.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am physically unable to sweat, I sit down in the shower, and I make impulsive/ drunken ebay purchases.
About a year ago I burned myself while trying to make popcorn on the stove. The scar from the burn looks like a birthmark now, but you and I both know it is really just a memorial to my own stupidity.
I'm the guy that intentionally mispronounces the word in 'Telephone.'
You should message me if:
If you value experiences over material possessions; or make decisions based on how good of a story it would make.
Alternatively, if you have a laundry list of irrational fears (including but not limited to: velociraptors, balloons, stretching limbs, floating heads), please message me to compare notes.
... or if you really like beards.
