I'm a person who is really into philosophy, film, language, new politics, social justice, and a lot of other things too. Going to grad school for philosophy. I love animals but I still eat them, for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on a Ph.D. in Philosophy at SBU. That's about it, at the moment. Figuring out what "radical" really means politically and personally, and how to recognize the insincere or the cynical or the nihilistic in the radical.
I’m really good at
Reading and understanding theory. I'm getting better at writing
about it. I want to be good at: playing the drums, writing stories,

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My own life, where I'm headed, my friends, how we construct

generation to be sincere.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a concert or out with friends or reading or sleeping or
