I'm a scholar and a (classical) musician. I'm a creative, ambitious guy but also laid-back and try not to take life too seriously. I love to travel and am fortunate enough to get to do a lot of it. Chocolate is my guilty pleasure.
What I’m doing with my life
I finished my PhD a few years ago and am now busy doing research and writing books. I am also a pianist and play concerts occasionally, which is great fun.
I’m really good at
playing piano, running, reading, spending money, staying calm, making desserts, impersonating Björk. (It's all about the accent.)
I'm not good at walking slowly. You have been warned.
The first things people usually notice about me
Someone recently described me as "wholesome and sexy."
I'll take it.

The six things I could never do without
A comfortable bed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

No, of course not.
On a typical Friday night I am
having a good time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm even here.
You should message me if
you're an interesting, intelligent, good-looking guy and you think
we'd hit it off.
you're Seth Meyers. No, seriously, if you're Seth Meyers you should
send me a message right now.
Or if you're up for getting coffee or a drink sometime and just
seeing where that takes us.
