“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
― Dr. Seuss

If you're not smiling then you're not doing it right. Especially for the easy things, but especially for the hard things.

Music is the medium through which I explore the universe

I enjoy the goodnesses in life, including:
- Good conversation with good people
- Cooking and eating whole foods
- Riding my bike slow
- Riding my bike fast
- Music in every form. Playing, listening.
- Yoga
- Learning
- Laughing
- Creating
- The smell of not being in the city
And everything else, too

The Story of my life

I've done a lot of seemingly random things, like taught music at a nonprofit, coached a High School Wrestling team, wrote a rhyming Children's Book, played music with a few members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and road tripped across the US. But maybe they're not so random.

I believe that creativity is where intelligence and play converge. Let's meet there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Giant Steps.

Not too long ago I quit my (boring) job for grad school. I got a Masters in Nanotechnology from UPenn, where I made new types of Solar Cells. Now I'm getting my PhD in Materials Science and Engineering, working on using two-dimensional materials as semiconductors, though I hope to get back into renewable energy afterward.

I did my undergrad at UF and it's a bit strange returning to Gainesville. The noble Oaks still echo with some of my greatest successes and failures, and I'm unsure if they have anything left to offer me. But somewhere between the swaying Spanish Moss and the glowing sunsets I think there is something here for me. Of course, it will ultimately be however I choose it to be.
I think it will be wonderful.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Grabbing a hand-basket at the grocery store when I really need a cart, and being too (insert adjective of your choice here) to switch.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm humming along to the music playing in my head. Or that I'm using my body as a drum. Or using something around me as a drum. Probably not an actual drum.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite Books: East of Eden, The Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway, Biomimicry, The Story of Stuff, Omnivore's Dilemma, People's History, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? by Dr. Seuss, and many more.

Music: All. Please give me good music to listen to. Now.
Currently exploring: Joanna Newsom

Food: Kale and Quinoa find their way into the majority of food I make.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Mental intercourse
The giggles
A few good hours of down dog and standing on my head every week
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hmm, is that enough Sriracha? No, it probably needs more.

Joining a Barbershop Quartet

What life would be like if I had a handlebar mustache.

Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
That's a silly question
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
For a creature that's still alive, I've done a surprisingly little amount of foraging.

I'm still "it" from a game of tag from over 15 years ago. I don't know how I've survived this long with such shame.

If our laughter is in key.

If you're happy and you know it.

If you're an unstoppable force of nature.

If you want to jam. Let's harmonize!
