Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Doing Ph.D work in Ancient Philosophy and Classics, preparing for a
return to the UK (this time London!) for the rest of my degree.
I'll be back in Little Rock in a few weeks! I love great
conversations, crazy fun, good drinks, good times and travel. I'm a
runner and I have to get out and hike/explore — mountains and woods
are my refuge. I'm also a musician of some pedigree. Let's hangout!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, I got my Masters in the UK in 2012, and I taught music,
philosophy and I worked at the radio in Little Rock, AR for two
years, and now I've started my doctoral work, planning to move my
studies overseas next term (or, fall). Honestly, I'm looking for
something exciting to do here in Norman — I enjoy meeting new
people and exploring oft-forgotten places. If you can help me put
together an idea for a documentary program that is sufficiently
metaphysical/psychological, that would be awesome too. I've been
actively considering trying to get back into radio or television!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Several things! Music is where my heart is — I'm a violinist and
pianist, and was a classical music programer/host for two years. I
have a rather distinctive, high-intensity persona, so I like being
the center of attention, for better or worse. At least I'm honest!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think most people notice that I'm kind of loud..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This is a conversation topic you should ask me about. I've been
thinking a lot about the nature of time recently (both
professionally and by virtue of other things), and so I'm *finally*
going to try to finish Swann's Way in the next couple of weeks. As
far as fiction goes, Gothic short stories, H.P. Lovecraft, and I
think I'll try some sci-fi soon. Mostly I've been totally absorbed
in my work on Plato and ancient poetry. I'm trying to push new
grounds in locating the philosopher's relationship to his
contemporaneous comic poets and public. As far as music; Marsheaux,
Beach House, Class Actress, Chromatics, Desire, Glass Candy,
Metronomy, New wave, 40's swing!! So, Artie Shaw, Billie Holiday,
Glenn Miller and so forth. Brazilian and Argentinian music is
something I've really been exploring for awhile, so, Astrud
Gilberto, Piazzola et al. In the realm of 'art' music: I like
medieval and renaissance, romanticism etc, minimalism and polish
expressionism. I was a classical programmer for like two years!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
family/friends (this includes animals :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Looking for somewhere to dance/club (I have not had the chance to
go to OKC for this yet), but being in Norman, without much luck!
Otherwise hanging out with a few of my friends!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're fun and serious, and if you have passion! Or if you'd
like a casual date with nothing serious, that'd be great too haha
