I had this whole self-summary written out, but now every time I
read it I cringe. But I saved it. So maybe later you can read it.
But probably not. Because its awful.
I was a PhD student in Molecular Biology at the University of
Pittsburgh, but then I stopped. I graduated from Brandeis
University with a BS in Biology and a Minor in Philosophy. I spent
5 months working with a trail crew in western Mass cutting down
trees, moving rocks, building bridges, etc. I now attend Boston
College for a Masters degree in Secondary Education.
I like playing guitar. I love hanging out with my friends and I
love biking and running. I think I’m starting to like writing about
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a full time middle school science teacher
I'm a full time grad student
I'm swerving on my bike (Seriously, I love my bike)
I'm making lists of shit to keep up with at work and at home
I'm working on my dunking skills (I honestly think being able to
dunk a basketball would make me a better person)
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
First, you'll smell me. You won't know its me, but there is
something about the way the air tastes that's just...right. Then,
you'll hear me; my deep comforting bass billowing through the air
and enveloping your whole body, you'll feel the vibrations in your
loins. Finally, you'll see me, in all my majesty, towering over
common men like a silver-back gorilla amongst his harem. That is
USUALLY my first impression on people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Brothers Karamazov, The Count of Monte Cristo, Dune, any
Vonnegut; I'm currently reading 'Clockers' by Richard Price and its
Movies: City of God, Super Troopers, The Matrix, Enter the
Shows: any of the classics Eugene O'Neal and Tennessee Williams. I
also like any interesting plays and have a really low standard for
what I'll consider a good play (after being dragged to lots of
Music: Ab-Soul, ASAP Rocky, Opeth, Danny Brown, Between the Buried
and Me, Frank Ocean, The Fall of Troy, Earl Sweatshirt, Action
Bronson, Portugal. The Man, Saves the Day, Dirty Projectors,
Brightside, Make it Up, Blunt Logic
Food: EVERYTHING (I especially like Greek food), I really love
craft beers, especially really great IPAs like Bells Hopslam, Avery
Maharaja, Wachussets Larry...
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Fresh Prince of Bell Air and his ulterior motives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Texting a couple of friends, meeting up at a bar, heading to a
different bar, going to someone's house to chill out, biking home.
Alone. So alone...or being enticed into some house party or
basement show. Or chilling on my balcony smoking a spliff and
trying to draw the house across the street/play guitar. Or wasting
my time on Facebook. Or thinking about space/how life will be in
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually ended up spending a whole lot of time on this profile.
Also, I can be pretty shallow sometimes.
You should message me if
If you were given the opportunity to fly to Mars you would totally
take it, even if your survival/return were far from guaranteed.
