My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
here are some things i am:
i'm in math grad school
i'm a huge fucking nerd
i think about philosophy and art and music and structure
i write sometimes
i ride a bike around the city
i listen before i talk
i type in lowercase to save my precious pinky strength for my old age
i probably don't make a whole lot of sense a whole lot of the time. but at the end of the day, i'm kind and honest and compassionate

art is the end goal of the human project

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
i'm getting a math ph.d. i'd like someday to have said something good about our relationship to the concepts we create. then they'll be having an argument and one of 'em'll be like "it's like that dude said" and my skeleton will smile in my grave
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people laugh. singing, i'm told. i bike surprisingly fast for someone with no physical fitness whatsoever
