So I'm a person. Academic and meathead in turn. I listen to gangster rap and watch The Daily Show. Work for a nonprofit and make art on the DL...I've travelled a lot and am very good at hitchhiking and sleeping on people's couches. I like to throw people together in odd situations and see what trouble I can cook up. I take care of my body because I know it isn't seperate from my mind, and I'm often happiest in the gym.
