My self-summary
I love movie trivia, recorded music, and men's fashion. I like dogs, antiquated slang, and future fiction.

I do not have an IMDb page yet, but I do have a Bacon Number of 4.

My "Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens" status is SEEN THRICE and WILL SEE IT AGAIN.
What I’m doing with my life
I play, write, and teach music.
I’m really good at


Apparently, making viral memes about music theory.

Also, making useless, unsuccessful, and/or unpopular memes.
The first things people usually notice about me
My neutral face makes me look confused and/or lost. I guess that's better than some people's neutral face making them look mean or stupidly happy or something, but I don't know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of books about music, education, and social theory.

I like movies with high production values about heroic or interesting people, real or imagined. I also have a special place in my heart for movies about robots that feel feelings. I mostly go to the movies to listen to film scores, though. Currently I'm really into Ex Machina, Max, and Big Hero 6.

Sports Night, ER, The West Wing, House, Flight of the Conchords, Kitchen Nightmares, Star Trek TNG, The Boondocks, Early Edition, Seinfeld, Freaks and Geeks, Doug, Daria, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, just to name a few. Recently I've been into Mr. Robot and Luther.

I do music for a living, and participate in it in enough ways that I can't really limit my experience in listening. I play classical music, jazz, and musicals, mostly, but I work in music in many other ways. A few weeks ago, I downloaded the complete discography of Roberta Sá, and my life has not gotten any worse as a result.

I'm trying to like more food that's not terrible for me. I'll let you know how that goes.
The six things I could never do without
1. Raindrops on roses
2. Whiskers on kittens
3. Bright copper kettles
4. Warm woolen mittens
5. Brown paper packages tied up with strings
6. Phrygian half cadences...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Systemic inequity, its impact on communities, and the revolutionary praxis it would take to correct it.

The mathematics of intonation.

How I can get the very best out of my students.

How to reinvigorate classical and professional music in the 21st Century arts and entertainment markets.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at a gig, out with friends, or at home on the internet making memes about how I wish I were either at a gig or out with friends.
You should message me if
I'll talk to almost anyone about almost anything, but especially message me if:

You want to talk to someone completely open and non-judgmental about anything.

You have a vested interest in dismantling the white capitalist heteropatriarchy.

You recognize me from real life and just want to say hi to break through the initial awkwardness.

You want to meet me and hang out.

You want to meet me and play music.

You're cool with/curious about the fact that I'm a very sexual person who has been celibate for the last decade. I do probably want to have sex with you, though.

You want to help me rewrite my terrible profile.
