I strive for compassion and competence in everything I do, but most of the time, I just take clumsy stabs at life and hope everything turns out okay.
I love xkcd, the Rangers/Mets/Bills/Knicks, NYC (except for SI), urban exploration, stouts, pinot noir, Chinese calligraphy, typography, highland prairies.
I've traveled to 42 countries, couchsurfed in 27, hitchhiked in 20, skinny dipped in 18, bungee jumped in 10, lived in 4.
I want to be a net positive to the world; be a few inches taller so I wouldn't have so much trouble using the top shelves of cupboards and peepholes on doors; visit Tiger's Nest Monastery; see June Fourth officially commemorated.
If this page is any indication, I also seem to have a proclivity for making long lists.
