(The coolest dude in the room)
This is the portal to both my digital life and my IRL…life. Take your shoes off, your pants, whatever makes you comfortable and dig in.
And no, I won’t close my robe. Sorry.
My name is Mike Rastiello and I’m from the Internet. Pleased to meet you.
I am interested in movies, music, baseball, hockey, photography, comic books, design, and I really hate the way you use social media. I work for an online marketing agency where I am the Support Manager. I’m a problem solver. I love problems.
I am a fairly regular blogger, and you should subscribe to it. All subscribers get a free cookie.
Anyway, more about me.
I spent the first 25 years of my life in the Garden State, New Jersey, where I grew up, learned how to navigate traffic circles, jug-handles and went to tons of New Jersey Devils games. I also practically lived at Yankee Stadium between 1999 and 2001. There was also a lot of diner food and awesome pizza in there as well. I’ve never met anyone that is in the mob, and yes, I love Bruce Springsteen.
I went to college at Quinnipiac Univeristy in Hamden, Connecticut where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications, specializing in media production. I miss the cold New England winters, but don’t miss the New Englanders.
Then, in 2006 I moved to Texas to be with the awesome love of my life, Ali. We lived in Houston (Humble, Montrose, The Heights) for 5 years before moving west to San Antonio in December of 2011. Ali and I got married in October of 2011. Ask her about it. She’ll tell you everything.
I am an Apple user, currently using a 27″ iMac. I also use an iPhone and iPad as well. I love iPhone games and I am always looking for a next game to waste away playing.
I love Doctor Who, Community, Scrubs, and Arrested Development and I watch the DVDs over and over again like a school girl with a crush.
All the photography that you see on the site was taken by me in my travels around Houston, New Jersey, New York, San Antonio and beyond. Yes. Me. If you would like to see more of my photography head over to my Flickr photostream.
I enjoy long walks off of short piers, getting caught in the rain, and dancing in supermarket aisles (H.E.B. has the best music). I love baseball and hockey and live and die with the playoffs. I am also a huge comic book geek. (Yeah, I run a Superman fan blog, so what?)
Currently, I am trying to learn the harmonica. I am not good.
Do you just need to know more about me or ask me a question?
Or, maybe you’re one of “those” people who like to read legal sounding things written by people who laugh at the word “duty”?
The cookie was a lie.
