My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I sing, play guitar, write, party, and love intellectual discussions. My hobbies include but are not limited to, mountaineering, playing cards, boxing, fencing and traveling.

Four years ago I traveled to Ecuador on my own and haven't stopped traveling since. I split my time between NYC and abroad. I lived in Costa Rica for a year studying and writing a paper on ethics and morality. Traveled around chunks of Latin America and was recently in Ecuador again to write about racism and racial subordination in Latin America. I wrote my thesis on The War on Drugs and U.S. policy, though I have spent a fair amount of time focused on counter-terror policy as well. I have almost finished my degree in International Criminal Justice (I finished my major and defended my thesis but have credits to fill) and am currently applying to PhD programs.

I like to read, and I do like my beer, a nice scotch and a margarita.

I have my White Water Guiding certification.

I also worked as a bartender for a while... still do on occasion.

I live for traveling, experiencing new things and discovering new cultures but most importantly, meeting new people.

I'm a strange combination between boxer and sci-fi lover.

Isn't it odd that I can often find the opposite to what I say I want to be equally enticing?

I have a couple tattoos (okay, a couple big tattoos) as you can see in my pictures.

I love poetry (though I'm picky about it... T.S. Eliot is my favorite), physics, and philosophy, I like to think and discuss.

PS: I rarely wear a shirt, when I don't need to, I just hate shirts.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently traveling and exploring, I'm studying international criminal justice with a focus on counter-terror and The War on Drugs. I'm currently working on publishing some location pieces as well as policy pieces.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Living the life I love and I loving the Life I Live (if you can tell me the song that line came from I'll be thoroughly impressed)

Memorizing poetry and song lyrics oddly quickly, fencing and boxing, and striving for happiness as I deem it the only worthy version of success.

I noticed this quote on another profile and now am mad at myself for not remembering it first, (thanks for reminding me):

"When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon

Last book read: The Bell Jar - Plath
I had written Plath off because I wasn't a huge fan of her poetry (though a Lesson in Vengance is great,) but I wanted to give her novel a try, so I read through The Bell Jar (actually in one sitting) this summer) and found its writing both brilliant and satirical, though depression it was a refreshing difference from some of her poems.

I love almost all types of food, except scallops... fuck scallops .... though bacon will always have a soft spot in my heart.... well, stomach (I make a mean bacon egg and cheese.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Music, (and specifically my guitar.)
2) My horrid(ly wonderful) sense of time.
3) Being able to talk to my friends and loved ones (Though I can go stretches without, it would drive me crazy to be entirely without).
4) Traveling & Coming home (specifically to NYC at this point in my life) I love nature and seeing new places but I also like to come back to the city.
5) My mentality towards life, it's taken me a long time to find a positive mentality and it would kill me to lose it.
6) Meeting new people, I thrive off that, learning new stories, new lifestyles, new beliefs and opinions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Morality vs Legality, and the perception of time in different cultures.

Cultural criminality

The Bystander Effect

"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it
so." - William Shakespeare, Hamlet
"The mind is its own place and in itself can make a Heav'n of Hell a Hell of Heav'n." - John Milton, Paradise Lost
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, if I'm not working I'll go out and have a couple beers with some friends, or hang out at one of their (or my) apartments, or throwing a cocktail party.... or just being in another country.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ask me and I'll show you in a piece of writing..... if you dare.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I cannot see "likes" so send me a message instead!

You feel like and are at least a little bit crazy... (in the not totally normal and boring way, not in the "I have crazy eyes and might kill you in your sleep way.")
You can say something interesting, not "whats up", or "hey"
Try a handful of sentences or bring up an interesting discussion point.

Message me if you realize Myers-Briggs personality test is total bullshit and only one of the 4 letters is relevant, I don't understand why everybody is so obsessed with it, is it because it sounds scientific?

Bonus points if you want to debate philosophy or even better if its criminal philosophy!
OR if you know what the game Go is, if you know how to play it I might be in love.
Also mad bonus points if you've seen A Very Potter Musical or know of starkid.

Don't message me if:
You talk in all caps.
