Introduction I grew up in a hippy commune, or at least that's how I remember it. I like to relentlessly catalog vinyl records. Not because I'm OCD, but for the opportunity to listen to treats that I may have forgotten about. I like poorly produced late 60's and early 70's soul music, where the drums sound like a whiffle ball bat on concrete. I enjoy reading authors that introduce new words to my vocabulary, words that I'll later mispronounce in conversation. My dog is my partner in crime, and I'm horrified but fascinated by Sharks. I'm an experienced writer in traditional and interactive creative advertising. I aspire to be a Superbeast.
Interests Crate Digging, Hip-hop, Breakfast (Mill City, Spring Street, Bryant Lake Bowl, Hell's Kitchen) shark lore, B-ball, Writing, Reading, Liberal politics, Pit bulls, Ping-pong, Biking, Beer, Graffiti, Pop art and real art, Cooking for myself and others, Gardening, or trying at least. Home repairs and restoration. C.S. Bungalows, architecture, music of all kinds except emo, and pop punk. I've been spinning hip-hop and funk going on 10 years. Comedy. Creative thought. The Research Team. Praying to false religious idols that tend to upset my very vocal Christian neighbor. Levitating and walking through walls. Representing for my homies at Stereo Skateboards, and AHOLIC gear, keep pimpin' the finest of S-Town Uber Beasts! Send me some shirts! Drinking Jim beam and Ginger Ales and Mint Juleps with Maki.
