My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think that I am funny, adaptive, perceptive and honest. More often than not I've been defined by random circumstance than by planned effort - I'm making a concerted effort to change this.

I love photography and the visual arts. One of my favorite photographers is Pari Dukovich, you should definitely check out his work. He shoots on film and his sense of light is just nuts.

I also listen to a lot of Podcasts. I love This American Life, The Moth, Freakonomics and Dan Carlin's Hardcore History.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Monday through Friday, I don a suit and support Federal clients. I also work at a bike shop and volunteer regularly to try to take the edge off. I try to find time for my photography on the side, and I am not proud to report that I have a never-ending list of books that I've been failing to get through..but I still read a lot of current affairs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Whiskey .. but also listening, observing, analyzing, playing devil's advocate, and solving problems.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

It's been two years since I read Infinite Jest and I still think about it. I read a lot of periodicals (The New Yorker,, Foreign Affairs, Granta, LensCulture, and so much more on my RSS feed) and love long form journalism. I love fiction (Fitzgerald, anything magical realism) and some poetry (Bukowski, Walt Whitman).

I love Wes Anderson movies and am a total sucker for dark indie comedies. I think Igby Goes Down defined my teenage years and Frances Ha is framing my 20s.

I'm currently going through Cheers on Netflix and I'm also a big fan of Shameless, Girls, True Detective and Mad Men.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. An ambition or goal to work towards
2. A strong love of self and a respect for one's work
3. A camera and, regrettably, a computer
4. An indulgent pleasure item, such as a dense book or the perfect canoli
5. A solid, dependable set of headphones
6. A bicycle! I emote so hard on those fucking things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I've accepted an invitation to serve in the Peace Corps this September (Senegal for Urban Agriculture). I feel complicated about this, particularly because of the whole Western paternalism thing. But despite the complexities of the Peace Corps, I am eager to learn from people who I would otherwise not have the chance to learn from.

I made a deliberate decision to pursue the Peace Corps over some short-term international development assignment because I think I'll grow substantially more as a person. As a society, we have a tendency to over-quantify and reduce the human condition into a something quantifiable... and I'm far more moved by the complexities of the human experience.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Chilling out.
