What I’m doing with my life
I just finished my MA in philosophy in Toronto, Canada where I was also a teaching/research assistant. I am currently teaching ESL in Busan, South Korea!

For fun I also play the drums in an indie/rock band. (Well I did in Toronto...)
I’m really good at
- Writing goofy philosophy essays
- I used to be a pretty good drummer when I was in the jazz program at Humber College, but now I only play casually.
- Reading things no one else wants to read.
- Drinking late.
- Having panic attacks
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I like the old philosophers (Nietzsche, Plato, Hegel, Heidegger, Hume, Kant) and the novels of Bukowski, Hamsun, Dostoevsky, Gogel, Vonnegut, Sartre, Celine, Fante, and Kafka.

Movies: My favourite directors are Woody Allen, Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson, Lars von Trier, Stanley Kubrick, Jonathan Demme, and Terrence Malick. But I like anything with a good story, good music, interesting characters, and heart.

Shows: Breaking Bad, The Office (original), Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development, HBO, Twin Peaks, early-Lost.

Music: Pearl Jam, Paul Simon, The Beatles, Tim Kinsella, Neil Young, Nick Drake, Modest Mouse, Bob Dylan, Hot Water Music, Bonnie Prince Billy, Promise Ring, Springsteen, Van Morrison, Daniel Johnston, Fleetwood Mac, The Sea and Cake, etc...

Artists: Van Gogh, Dali, Caravaggio, Monet, Bosch, Cezanne, Turner, Goya, Courbet, Friedrich...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life and death; obscure philosophical problems; whether or not the Leafs will make the playoffs...(I guess I'll be out of the loop this year).
On a typical Friday night I am
In Toronto: Downtown at a bar and/or playing a show with my band.
In Korea: Not sure
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was in a ten-year relationship. Yikes...
