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.
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.
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!
(If you get the joke, you win every single point)
I would also be glad to hear from you if you want to climb, lift, sing, or just have a conversation about anything.
