and I get to travel a good amount for my job. I've recently
returned to the Boston area after spending a year studying in
In some ways I'm old-fashioned, but I like the idea of portraying
personalities online though writing. I wouldn't say I'm looking to

In addition to rare, obscure, sometimes dusty books, I enjoy
collecting equally occult audio media in the form of vinyl records
and cassette tapes, mostly of music belonging to the darker genres,

access and access to books (unless traveling), food and water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Polytheism, music, when to buy my next plane ticket, animals, the
essence of women, studying, words, translations, bacon, Babylon,
what being dead is like, what being alive 5000 years ago was like,
Of how the world will be when winter comes without a spring that I
shall ever see; Of people long ago and people who will see a world
that I shall never know
