I'm a pretty laid back guy that can get along with just about
anyone. My multi-faceted personality is evident based on the wide
spectrum of people I count as friends. I can have good time with
people in any sort of social sphere. I really enjoy going to shows
(at smaller venues in particular) and walking around in no
particular rush, whether in the city or on a hike. I love
accumulating life experiences and I'm willing to try almost any new
type of hobby, food, band, country, movie or activity.
Traveling is a major passion of mine. I try to take one big trip
every year. I recently spent a year volunteering in Kenya, and over
the last several years I could be found sniffing around Central
America, South America, the Middle East, Africa and Europe. If you
have a suggestion for my next trip lay it on me.
What I’m doing with my life
Last year I left behind a life in DC to start a new job at my
family's business in Philly. After spending a lot of my early/mid
20's trying to figure things out I'm now very confident in the
direction of my life and career. I've had a blast re-discovering
Philly over the past year and a half. Oh how I missed a good
I’m really good at
Guessing what other people are thinking, thinking of ideas for
inventions, parallel parking, navigating foreign cities,
remembering friends birthdays, researching flights
The first things people usually notice about me
I have sort of curly hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As far as books go, I also like Nabokov a lot. A Short History of
Nearly Everything, A Confederacy of Dunces, and Blood Meridian are
a few books I’ve liked recently. Slash’s autobiography is also
awesome. Movies… Good Will Hunting, Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind, The Squid and the Whale are some good ones.
I like This American Life and Radiolab podcasts, and recently
devoured Serial. I read the Economist and stay on top of
international affairs. I mostly just watch HBO shows like Game of
Thrones and Curb your Enthusiasm. Indian and Thai food are
I love music and I'll have it playing whenever humanly possible.
Over the years my tastes have evolved from punk to jam bands to
indie rock. Favorites include: radiohead, the stooges, can, arcade
fire, the smiths, bob dylan, david bowie, pixies, bjork, animal
collective, neutral milk hotel, the cure, joy division, velvet
underground, sigur ros, leonard cohen, manu chao, lcd soundystem,
beruit, r.e.m., many others.
The six things I could never do without
- Spotify (the greatest invention of the modern era)
- Google Maps
- Audiobooks (I spend a lot of time on 76)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I were to somehow travel back in time, how useful could I be?
Would I be able to properly explain/invent anything from the modern
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ok ok... I'm 6 foot and 3 quarters.

You like spending time outside and don't take life too seriously.
I'd also prefer that you are nice, funny and laid back.
