My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Part-time insomniac, proud INFJ, equal opportunity employer of neologism.

I explore hidden places – I read books on forest rocks. Turning life into language is exhilarating and cathartic for me.

I enjoy being an open book; I like when others show me their pages just as much.

I am always thinking. Intellectual connection and meaningful conversation thrill me. I stay whimsical by looking at the stars, by pretending, by collecting feathers.

I realize some of this makes me sound like an overly serious romantic. Half the time I am, and the other half I am a complete goofus.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Collecting characters and breaking into libraries. Also, I sat on Mark Doty's couch once.

Or, if you must know, some magic got me into the MFA program at The University of South Carolina (originally I'm a Yankee). So I like to think of myself as a working poet.

Flight is my other obesssion. I almost became a professional pilot instead of a writer. When I'm not making word forts, biking rocky trails, running up mountains, kayaking under moonlight, or thinking way too much, I take up small planes and find new ways to make the ground loom.

After this, who knows? The world is so big. If we meet, be warned that unless you're the most boring person I've met, you'll probably end up in a poem.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cuddling incessantly (be warned!).
Annoyingly correcting your grammar.
Pretending I know something about fine art.
Drinking whiskey.
Standing by you through thick and thin.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was a red-tailed hawk in a former life.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy all types of movies, but have a particular yen for films that are brutally honest about the human condition (think American Beauty, Donnie Darko, Fight Club). Some of my favorite directors: Woody Allen, Quentin Tarantino, Todd Solondz, Wes Anderson.

I have fairly wide tastes; I like a lot of indie music. To name a few: Bright Eyes, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Mountain Goats, Rilo Kiley, Foster The People, Wolf Parade, The Thermals, Andrew Jackson Jihad, The Smashing Pumpkins, LCD Soundsystem, Elliot Smith, Manchester Orchestra, Cold War Kids, Noah And The Whale, Cage The Elephant, PIXIES, The Killers, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire, WILD FLAG, Blind Melon, Fiona Apple, The Cranberries, The White Stripes, The Smiths, Cake, The Beatles, Flaming Lips.

I love trying exotic foods. But I'll always be a seafood junkie.

I read mostly poetry and literary fiction. Books and authors are too many to list. Get to know me if you're curious! I also enjoy the occasional graphic novel (Neil Gaiman is the best).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Poetry
2. Mountains
3. Small airplanes
4. Conceptual art
5. Questions
6. Long hugs

Runner up: Pillows (I have a serious problem)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Wacky stuff: what my voice sounds like to other people, if it's possible to imagine that you don't exist, the patterns we call causality.

Sappy stuff: silence, how awesome cats are, the Little Prince's rose, how I used to name every new bike as a kid (and secretly still do).

Mysterious stuff: free will, the malleability of memory, identity as a narrative, gender as a a social construct, how words convey meaning.

Vital stuff: what my next tattoo will be, where should I fly next, what's the most enthralling verb.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Whether I'm out with friends or curled up with a book, I'll probably stop to think about how the days of the week are arbitrary linguistic designations for amorphous sections of space-time (yeah, I enjoy being pretentious. Don't take it seriously. I don't).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Plato likes to pretend he banned poets from his Republic, but they actually left on their own.

Butterflies freak me out.
I have five tattoos.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. like being blunt (vulnerability is my biggest turn-on). believe in the Oxford comma. crave spontaneous and mildly illegal adventures. want a nickname.

...the number thirteen has special meaning to you.

...none of these apply, but you're not one to be talked out of things.
