My favorite thing is music: playing it or listening to it or
watching other people play it. Getting off my bicycle to spend a
few moments staring at a tree is a regular occurrence. INTP if
you're into that.
What I’m doing with my life
For work I'm designing solar power systems for schools and businesses. So that's how I spend a lot of time. Probably too much of my time... I'm excited about it.
Other than that I'm playing a lot of guitar, drinking a lot of coffee (hey, I know what I like), and riding the green wave down Valencia. Is that last one too inside? The lights are timed for bicycle speed down Valencia in both directions.
I’m really good at
playing music, making coffee, rolling joints, figuring things out,
not getting hit by cars on my bike (knock on wood), keeping things
in perspective, tetris

The six things I could never do without
the electric code
really loud jam sessions
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how things work, how things could work, plants, anthropology,
roofs, whatever I'm working on at the moment, the categorical
imperative, the material trip, those clouds look so cool, I should
cook things more often, coffee sounds good right now, whichever
melody is playing in my head
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't keep chocolate in the house.
You should message me if
if you're wondering if you should, if you want to talk about an album you're excited about or that I might be excited about, if you spend a lot of time thinking about similar things as I spend a lot of time thinking about
