I'm a huge fan of nature. On several levels of organization. That's
the closest thing I can think of to a central theme.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a graduate student. I study plants!
The first things people usually notice about me
Visually, I try to blend in. I don't know what other people think,
but I hope that they find me thoughtful and caring.

Due to novelty and poor memory, my favorite anything doesn't last
very long. Some recent favorite authors, directors, other creative
Philip K Dick, Phillip Roth, Saul Bellow, Woody Allen, Ethan &
Joel Coen, Paul Thomas Anderson, Louis C.K., Tig Notaro, Mark
Bittman, Steven Rattner, Christopher Kimball
There should really be more women on that list.

You should message me if
you want to attend one of the free music school concerts with
somebody, you want to talk about something weirdly specific and
atypical of dating website banter (really), or you feel compelled
to do so after reading all this nonsense. Sometimes I'm not so
great at responding timely. Please don't take it personally.
