My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to explore hidden places. I like to read books in the forest. Turning life into language is exhilarating and cathartic for me.

I can be really emotional; I like to share my thoughts; I like when people share back just as much.

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

I realize all 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.
Since the age of sixteen, I've been writing poetry. By some magic, that got me into the MFA program at The University of South Carolina (I'm originally from Connecticut). So, right now I like to think of myself as a working poet.

My other passion is aviation. I almost became a professional pilot instead of a writer. Since I'm not one to give up a passion, I also fly small planes when I'm not writing, biking, running, kayaking, or thinking way too much.

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.
Annoyingly correcting your grammar.
Standing by you through thick and thin.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Big lips and blue eyes?
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. Family
3. Mountains
4. Small airplanes
5. Running
6. Art (mostly conceptual or abstract)

I guess this means I'll starve before I give away a book of poems?
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?
There is no typical Friday night for me.

But 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 (yes, 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!
Butterflies freak me out.
I have five tattoos.
I used to have a lot of residual guilt from growing up in a religious household.

How's that for vaguely personal?
