I work for a small nonprofit, and in my spare time I like to travel, read, hike and explore the outdoors. And of course have existential freak outs about what I'm going to do with my life, which I do almost on a weekly basis. I'm a pretty great cook. Or so I've heard.
When indoors, I'm quite nerdy. I like languages, history, and books.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm fostering shared heritage and cultural exchange in the Middle
East. Or, I work for a cool company that does. See abrahampath.org
I’m really good at
Cooking, drinking, making people laugh. Meticulously planning
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm usually inappropriately dressed for the weather because I run
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
khalil gibran, frantz fanon, naguib mahfouz, chimamanda adichie, paul bowles, other stuff
amadeus, casablanca, wes anderson, lost in translation, lots of others i can't think of right now
cosmos, house of cards, arrested development, house (not of cards), breaking bad, parks and recreation
the white stripes, the kinks, amadou & mariam, fela kuti, the smiths, the shins, lauryn hill, and other stuff!
also, because i'm a stereotypical white person in a lot of ways, i'm really into podcasts! radiolab and TAL especially.
and i basically like all food ever.
The six things I could never do without
an adventure to look forward to
my mom ( I know, aww)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what i want to be when i grow up
On a typical Friday night I am
Drunkenly telling a stranger about something they didn't ask about
and have no interest in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watch WAY more documentaries than is socially acceptable. Also, I
love Harry Potter. And I'm not sorry.
You should message me if
you want to!
