My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to write, read and drink coffee and I spend most of my days doing all three at once.
I am from rural Colorado where things move a little slower, where people have a sauntering way of walking and a drawly way of talking.
I've lived in Oakland for several years now, with a little 2 year stint in Mexico City in between, and a few years in Paris before that, so now I have both city and mountains in my blood and my dreams of the future alternate between New York City and a small town in Montana where everyone goes to the high school football games.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
PhD in sociology, writing about Mexico, and teaching about religion. Work aside I am a dedicated uncle-friend-son-brother and have a serious relationship with my bicycle.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drinking coffee, shooting the breeze, swimming, bicycling, skiing, thrift-store shopping, making pancakes (I have a delicious wild alaskan sour dough yeast collected by a miner in the 19th century, so they - yeast and miner - deserve the credit).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
paris texas, pasolini, polanski, french new wave, old jack nicholson movies, casavettes, haneke, twin peaks, herzog, terrence malick.

music, i developed a little obsessive record collecting disorder for a few years so i have a little mini library i browse through at home. some of my favorite sections are jazz (especially bluesy jazz like cannonball adderley, yusef lateef, sidney bechet), folk-americana-stuff (wilco, palace brothers, smog), british indie rock (mogwai, stone roses, smiths, cure)

i read a lot for my work, theory, history, politics, religion. i am finding my way back into fiction after a little break, i like old stuff, dostoevski, stendhal, jane austen.

coffee and cheese are deep deep loves
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
coffee, cheese, chocolate, my bicycle, the swimming pool, friendly banter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how i can stop spending so much of my time thinking
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
reading and writing, watching a movie, going to a show, drinking whiskey
