I am a lover of science. Anything that elicits thought and reason
based on evidence and circumstance is my poetry. I don't read
nearly as much as I would like, and I watch far more tv than is
healthy. I won't discuss politics, but I have strong, logical
opinions of my own.
Being active is a must although deep down I am quite lazy. I love
my bike, running, climbing, swimming, hiking, snowboarding, playing
baseball and kickball. But must importantly I just want to be
I love music, but only understand its effect on me. I have a love
for hip hop and punk rock, but firmly believe both died shortly
after the end of the nineties.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I teach kids science. I try to get outside as much as
possible. Bike rides to a climbing spot in wissahickon are a must
in spring. The new docks on the Schuykyll are the best spot to take
a mid run break. And when the sun goes down (and ocassionally
before) I can be found in SPTR or lounging outside at Catina.
I’m really good at
Nothing that's why I keep trying...
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, loud, and have a lot of hair. On second glance one might
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Every book I read is my favorite to be honest. I grew up with Harry
Potter and those stories will always have a place in my heart.
Recently I have been reading lots of backcountry non-fiction
adventure and a collection of Richard Feynmen lectures and essays.
I haven't been reading much recently but I'm always trying to learn
something new. Also, Malcolm X's Autobiography is possibly the most
important book I've ever read.
As far as movies go, Harry Potter is amazing. But there are better
movies. Shawshank is everything and Fight Club was life changing.
Other than that I'll pretty much watch anything with Bradley Cooper
or Ryan Gosling.
I watch too much TV. Any of the hour long episodes on HBO and
Showtime are good. The Wire is classic, as well as the Boondocks
and Dave Chapelle.
I listen to Hip Hop, Punk rock, Jazz, Soul, Just about anything
that is made with style and not for money. Love Outkast, Talib
Kweli, Lucero, Against Me! Coltrane, Nina Simone, and Led
I'm cutting meat and dairy from my diet. Not strictly, but as much
as I can. I believe it's best for my health.
The six things I could never do without
Mountains, snowboarding, sun, guacamole, hot sauce, and
(unfortunately) my phone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can be better at whatever I am doing. Also, Baseball and
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally drinking early after work. I tend to survive each week
from September to June by the skin of my teeth then drink for the
night. I enjoy happy hour and meeting people for food, events, and
shows. Other times I'm driving through the night on my way to some
adventure in New England.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If it's private and I share it, then it is no longer private. So in
a sense I must share the must public thing about me. I rock climb.
