My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello!

I am a philosopher, climber, and musician, and generally an empathetic, honest, passionate, active, and driven person.

I grew up in New Jersey, which I think may be responsible for my playfully aggressive demeanor and (perhaps heavy-handed) use of sarcasm. I am critical, but only insofar as I am curious, and I love to have conversations that help me and others to better understand anything whatsoever. I love to teach, but I also love to learn, and I think it is important to always be prepared for both.

I currently work quite a bit, and am also dedicating time specifically to my personal goals. I am looking for someone who is as ambitious and passionate as I am (no matter about what) with whom I can enjoy my free time, through earnest and interesting conversation, outdoor activity, creative venture, or just hanging and relaxing. I am not interested in mere casual sex, though am open to short and long term dating, as well as friendship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach logic at the university level, and love it; seeing students come in with a vague idea of what logic is and leave with an understanding of thought they can apply to their personal interests is very rewarding.

I love rock climbing and lifting, and enjoy most outdoor activities. My best friend once called climbing "physics problems you have to solve with your body instead of a pencil." Physics has never been my schtick, but I think he is onto something. There is also something to the feeling of moving weight, knowing that you are a strong and healthy person, that I truly enjoy. I also love yoga, which keeps me flexible and injury free, as well as the occasional bike ride.

I play electric guitar, 12 string acoustic, and electric bass. Surprise and expression are what I look for most in music; I love when I hear something I did not expect, and when what I hear makes me feel. I try to incorporate that into my own music, and also tend to employ thick timbre. I try to keep it earnest.

I am attempting to pursue a Ph.D in philosophy, focusing on experimental philosophy and neurophenomenology. I find the structure of conscious life and the mind fascinating, and I think an adequate understanding of consciousness can have real ramifications for everyone but especially for those suffering from various psychopathologies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving problems, giving advice, employing sarcasm and levity, "pioneering" "twinkle-slug", and playing smash brothers for nintendo 64 (though it has been a while).
The first things people usually notice about me

I gesticulate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Ecce Homo: How to Become What You Are, by Nietzsche, changed my life years ago by changing how I view myself and others.
On the Phenomenology of the Consciousness of Internal Time (Husserl), Selfhood and Subjectivity (Zahavi), and How the Body Shapes the Mind (Gallagher) instilled in me a love of phenomenology and strong interest in psychopathology. If manga counts, I truly love One Piece, with its message of freedom, friendship, and determination.

I like sci-fi, most notably Doctor Who, zombie shows and movies such as The Walking Dead and 28 Days Later, and anything medieval or magical (I loved the Harry Potter books and movies). The furthering, degrading, or simple alterity of possible society intrigues me. I like comedy, especially when every character is an asshole (looking at you, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia). Also, cartoons (Hey Jake, what time is it?)

I like my music to express something, not simply through the lyrics but through the music itself. I am a big fan of ugly voices, and I also think that stupidity has its place in music. Some of my favorite genres are post-rock, crust, post-emo, math, emo, and electronic. I used to be really into punk during my adolescence, and revisit it from time to time. My favorite band is probably Modest Mouse, particularly their older stuff (Sad Sappy Sucker is beautiful), and my favorite album is "Building Nothing out of Something."

I love trying new foods. Right now, eggs (humane) are a mainstay, and I am very big on fruits and vegetables. Indian cuisine might be my favorite; vegetarian friendly food packed with flavor and nutrition is a winning combination!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Impressional object-awareness, and why the subject isn't as "impressive."

(If you get the joke, you win every single point)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing before working Saturday morning... Saturday night, however, I am typically having a drink or two with friends and co-workers, or hanging out with roommates, perhaps with a smidge of movement that I insist on calling "dancing."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't snap my fingers on my left hand. I've tried to figure it out. If I want to snap my left, I just snap my right while the left goes through the motions. This tricks my mind into a "close enough" sort of stance.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am interested in people who will question me when I don't make sense, will teach me when I don't understand, and will collaborate on solving mystery. Dialectic is fun for me - I love to learn, teach, and laugh - and would like to spend time with someone who thinks so too.

I would also be glad to hear from you if you want to climb, lift, sing, or just have a conversation about anything.
