My self-summary
I've been in New York City for almost three years now. Before living here, I've lived in Boston, Iowa, and Florida. My family currently lives in Tennessee, which is where I went to college and lived throughout most of my twenties. I've got a little bit of a southern sensibility, mostly with respect to my love of mountains and bluegrass music. But I should add that I wouldn't describe my politics as southern at all.

I suppose Im a mixed bag of romantic/realist/idealist/pragmatist/spiritualist/secularist/southern yankee if that makes any sense. I think it has to do with the fact that I grew up in Florida, where everyone is from somewhere else, and where people only commit to living there for half the year.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to NYC in August 2011 to begin my PhD, and I've been working on that ever since. I am passionate about my studies and consider myself very lucky to be working with some great scholars in my field.
I’m really good at
Well I spend a lot of my time reading and writing for school, so I hope Im good at that. I play the guitar, and consider myself an amateur, but I might get up at an open mike from time to time. I like to think I have good taste in music, and I spend a good bit of my free time trying to hunt down good live music options in the city.

I've met a great community of musicians here, and I have my ear to the ground for good shows on a weekly basis, and I like to go out often. You might find me at venues like the Jalopy Theater, Sunny's, Mona's, Lowlands Bar, or the Rockwood Music Hall (especially on Tuesday nights when Michael Daves plays).
The first things people usually notice about me
That I tend to space out a lot.

Just the other day I had a woman tell me that I remind her of her son, because of my "dreamy eyes."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: let it just suffice to say that I love going to live music shows of all kinds, and I am an avid music fan....I tend to favor the bluegrass/folk/americana stuff the most, and I also enjoy going out for jazz. Some favorites include Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, Norman Blake, Hank Williams, Flatt and Scruggs, Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, Martin Simpson, Richard Thompson, June Tabor, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, John Hartford, Doc Watson, The Louvin Brothers, Woody Guthrie, Paul Simon, Sam Cooke, Kate Wolf, Ricky Nelson, Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer, The Byrds, The Punch Brothers, Anais Mitchell, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Delmore Brothers, The Blue Sky Boys, Iris Dement, The Everly Brothers, and more stuff like that.

Movies: Also an avid fan of these. But aren't we all pretty much at this point, in the age of Netflix?

TV: I like most of the usual suspects that I see on here. True Detective was the most recent show I enjoyed. Getting caught up on Mad Men and Game of Thrones at the moment, along with the rest of the country.

Food: sushi, italian, mexican are probably my top three.
The six things I could never do without
Music, a good beverage, peanut butter, chocolate, friendship, oxygen.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of life; why Lois Lane can't recognize Superman with his glasses on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Once again, music is kind of my thing to go out for. But its New York City, so who knows? Anything could happen.
