My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What we have here is something not quite like anything else. Each one of us is an immensely complicated organism living on an ever-changing dynamic planet with only the tiniest sliver of sentience to comprehend it. What does an organism do when it realizes this fate—a fate so frustrating but yet also astoundingly beautiful? Some cry, some rejoice, and some even rebel. I do the latter. I rebel from this fate, stare into the infinite black of uncertainty, and constantly question it, forever curious of its inner workings. But beyond all of these musings and thought parades, I am just a normal guy with dreams, passions, and a will for adventure. This is, of course, if these are the things that define normality.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day I'm a geologist for an environmental engineering firm. Basically I help fix the places we've messed up already.
By night I'm a curious intellectual and observer, absorbing information and culture through the media of foods, music, books, and people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Opening my mind to different sets of values and perspectives.
- Analogizing ideas that seem very far removed from each other.
- Finding aesthetic beauty in any environment, object, or sound.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get a lot of comments about my jawline and eyes.
I inject alliteration and rhyming into normal conversation (with mixed results).
I am empathic and tend to reflect the demeanor of whomever I'm interacting with.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books:
Currently Reading: 'Both Flesh and Not' by David Foster Wallace
Just Finished: 'Foucault's Pendulum' by Umberto Eco and 'Candide' by Voltaire
I really enjoy reading because it offers new perspectives as well as new knowledge. I enjoy anything that will make me think.

Film: I prefer more artful and intellectual films as opposed to entertainment (though this of course has its time and place). For example, I really enjoyed the recently released movie 'Her' because not only does it provide artful cinematography and dialogue, but it also entertains and provides a basis for thinking about what it means to be human. Some other favorites include: 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Machinist, and In Bruges.

Shows: I do not watch TV often anymore, but I really enjoyed Utopia, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and The Walking Dead.

Music: I have a very eclectic taste in music. Lately I have been listening to a lot of jazz-inspired instrumentals (check out 'The Dylan Group'!), jazz itself (Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Thelonious Monk) in addition to the usual rock/alternative rock/indie. I recently started listening to Beirut and really dig it. If you like Beirut and have any suggestions please tell me!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Curiosity: I cannot imagine what life would be like without the desire to seek and understand the unknown.

2. The question "why?": Without "why?" we are without the wherewithal for warmth.

3. Introspection: It's enough to delve into the understanding of the the world around you, but it's another thing to to delve into understanding your place within it.

4. Texture: Texture is important in both material things and the immaterial (e.g. sound). Textures set the tone, or the mood, or the sense.

5. The written word: The written word is miraculous because it provides a window into the mind of another; and it is even more miraculous when it is from long ago, where one is peering into a mind that has long since stopped thinking.

6. Quality: Whether material or immaterial, I must always seek quality. For material things, I appreciate the work and craftsmanship involved in making it. You can just 'feel' the quality. For immaterial things, such as interpersonal interactions, I throw myself into them fully, and expect the same from the other person to do the same--that's a quality interaction.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- The colors of things.
- What the conversations between plants would be like if they had the capacity to observe people walking down the street (and converse).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Perhaps watching a movie, out for drinks, or even wiping my eyes over a beautifully constructed academic journal article.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a soft spot for the sound of a violin, but the sound of an accordion takes the cake.
