I'm a pretty low key guy who enjoys the simple things/moments in
I'm an ENTJ
, if that means anything.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to San Diego last year to get my Masters in International
Public Policy at UCSD. I actually grew up in Southern California,
but I've lived in San Francisco the past nine years, so San Diego
still pretty new to me. Before this latest adventure, I worked in
television and produced live events for a tech company in the
I'm excited to get out and see more of the city/beaches/trails etc.
That is, when I'm not stressing/geeking out over my studies.
I’m really good at
Geography and languages, because I was one of those kids that would
sit in front of a globe or an atlas for an hour imagining far-off
places. I've always wanted to play that globe game where you stop a
spinning globe with your finger and travel to wherever it stops.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor. I'd give an example, but who's funny on the
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I mostly like reading non-fiction. Books about politics,
history, and international relations. Every once-in-a-while I get
into fiction, but it's hard for me to suspend disbelief. My
favorite author of fiction is probably Chinua Achebe.
Favorite book ever: Anthills of the Savannah
Movies: I like either really campy shit or ultra-serious dramas. My
most recent obsession in terms of movies has been Cold War-era
films like Fail Safe, Threads, and of course, Dr.
Music: Meh, that's a long list. Some of my heroes include: Saint
Etienne, Pizzicato Five, Bjork, Lambchop, Antonio Carlos Jobim, The
Free Design. I like music that calms me down, more than music that
gets me going.
Food: Diet Coke, Vietnamese Sandwiches.
The six things I could never do without
-My best friends
-Constant noise/talking, either from a radio, ipod or
-Outdated slang phrases.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
International relations, pop culture, stuff I miss from the 90s,
On a typical Friday night I am
Out organizing for one of the Tea Party groups I'm affiliated with.
(This is a joke)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was the fourth member of the girl group Cleopatra (until I got
kicked out). Life really hasn't been the same since. :(
