I'm a soon to be 30 year old dude just trying to make some
I probably value presence and authenticity more than anything else
in my life right now.
My career is fun but isn't particularly soul nourishing so I spend
a lot of my free time immersing myself in various hobbies and
Currently: perfect naturally leavened pizza.
My sense of humor could be best described as dark and wry. There
isn't much that can't be looked at with a smile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Climbing, bread making, cooking, fermenting, biking, swimming,
hiking, learning, music-ing, eating, lots of eating.
But seriously, one of the most important things that I'm doing with

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

and last week tonight.
Favorite podcasts: Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, Freakanomics,
WTF, Radiolab, Coast to Coast.
Music.... Record collector for sure. I like a lot of older psych
and garage type stuff from the 70's and 80's, but I'm also really
loving a lot of the indie type stuff that's getting popular these
days. I saw Wye Oak the other night and I am totally
Your as likely to see the Wipers or Wire on my record player as you
are to see Promise Ring or Mac Demarco. I love it all.
Food: Currently on a nonstop tour of 82nd ave.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Internet (don't you judge me!)
Some sort of fire.
Mapo Tofu... Seriously, I just can't quit you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to find happiness in the day to day.
How the hell people still seem to be able to afford living

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
