If I had to classify my personality, I'd say I'm more towards the creative side of things. I'm not overly materialistic; most of my passions are along more artistic/literary/generally esoteric lines. My main talent is writing. I'm currently working on a novel and several short stories. I occasionally write non-fiction articles and music reviews. I also have a deep appreciation for visual art and music, though I have virtually no skills in these areas myself. Academically, I've studied philosophy, linguistics, and literary theory, which I'm hoping to transfer into a doctorate in cognitive science (specifically cognitive linguistics). I have a casual fascination with anything involving the hard sciences (in particular theoretical physics and neuroscience), mathematics, and psychology. I would absolutely love to meet new people with expertise in these fields, so if you've studied anything like that feel free to message me!
Fun fact: I worked as an assistant on the project that recently outed J.K. Rowling's pseudonym, albeit in a very minor role.
I'm looking to travel more. I've been to the U.K., France, Austria, Denmark and Sweden on academic research grants, but of course I'd love to see even more.
I can find something interesting in most people, provided they have not been entirely consumed by demagogue-ery.
I have lines from poems by Shelley and Eliot tattooed on both arms.
I possess a magic backpack that seems to always contain a particular book that will be useful in any given situation.
I'm very good at making lists.
