Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an intellectual-creative type but mostly enjoy just getting
I grew up in a philly suburb, when to school at Villanova and lived
in different parts of the city since. I know my share of spots in
I'm pretty independent but enjoy shooting the shit and spontaneous
conversation about pretty much anything. I probably feel most
myself outside around a fire pit at night with people who also
"dig". It's a term I can't get away from recently, sort of
reflecting both the enjoyment of life and the willingness to work
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I studied philosophy in college and upon exiting proceeded to take
many turns. Bands, instrument repair workshops, farms, yoga
teacher-training. This is just my story, so if you're someone whose
had similar experience or rather has known all their life what they
wanted to do, I can appreciate both experiences.
I decided about two years ago web development would be a good
flexible choice for myself as a career direction and I began to
self teach myself how to code and design. After free-lancing and
working odd jobs, i found a solid one close to me that I'm
enjoying. It's quite a relief after years in constant reflection of
Although, I've become a little more settled I still have a huge
appetite for life. I'm always writing words and music and would
love to be able to do a tour eventually. I read a lot, these days
mostly books on meditation. Psychology and mindfulness studies have
a strong appeal to me but there's a lot to take in between all
sorts of modalities. I'm currently just taking it in.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm my own worst critic when it comes to music but if I can put it
aside for a second, I'm a good musician. I have a healthy respect
for technique but for me, music is emotion and I can access the
many sides of life in myself and play them. My style jumps between
rock and folk while craving to be psychedelic (not quite
I'm also really good at being patient. As much as I experienced
frustration trying lots of different things during my twenties, I
do think I was patiently working through a lot of my own stuff. I
work hard, and efficiently, and will occasionally have the, 'I'm
suppose to further along' thought, but hell, I'm also here to enjoy
it and I do.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've heard people mention that I'm extremely mellow, I like to
think I just choose what to get excited about.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My favorite fiction includes Herman Hesse, Richard Brautigan,
Keourac. Poets Kenneth Rexroth, Denise Levertov, E.E. Cummings.
However, I've mostly read non-fiction and yes I give credence to
freud, marx, jung as well as stuff like upanishads, Ken Wilber or
the strangest book on consciousness studies you've ever come
across. This is just stuff that suits me, I don't need to meet
someone else that reads that same stuff, that's often kind of
I like movies and shows but it's actually in this category, I'll
actually go much less intellectual. Sure I can enjoy art films and
have plenty of favorites but the age of 'netflix and chill' is sort
of upon us. I use TV and movies to unwind and enjoy adventure and
Music I love. I go to the philadelphia folk festival every summer
and it's essentially my favorites part of the year. I'm thinking
about going to the Austin Psych fest this April. I love Bowie,
Dylan, Byrne, Young. I dig shoe-gazers like Jesus and Mary Chain
and My Bloody Valentine. I might have a slight obsession with the
Brian Jonestown Massacre.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Devotion, Family, Friends, Thoughtful Conversation, Nature, Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Environmentalism, Social Change, Music, Philosophy, Religion,
Spirituality, Politics, Art, Psychology and Unimportant Bullshit.
Oh wait that's all one big thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
exhausted from my previous weeks adventures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Might as well get it out there: I'm might be somewhat of a neurotic
when it comes to relationships. There's a lot there as I'm sure
there is for many but I've so far much preferred to explore things
for myself rather than with somebody else. I've been out of the
dating game for some time and so I'll undoubtedly come off rusty.
It's compounded by my desire to do it "right", which to me is to
pursue someone who I'm really interested in for all of the reasons.
*Relax and be courageous* is my mantra. All this said, I'm not even
necessarily looking for something serious, just something highly
enjoyable and peaceful.
