I'm a bluegrass loving, mandolin playing, trail running former plant evolutionary ecologist. I think the essence of what I'm pursuing in life is that "flow", that state of being when I'm completely home in my own skin and at one with my surroundings.
I value quality over quantity in all aspects of my life. I also value experiences over things.
When I'm not poking at the keyboard like Homer's bird, I run on trails, ride bikes, try new recipes and read to my heart's content.
Movies: Equilibrium, Meet Joe Black, La la land, The man from U.N.C.L.E., A river runs through it, Thank you for smoking.
Shows: Anything broadway + opera, Chris Thile
Music: Bluegrass (if the band has banjo + mandolin I'm sold eg. Sierra Hull, Aoife O'Donovan, Mandolin Orange)
Food: Japanese, Taiwanese, French, Italian, Norwegian
TV shows: The Expanse, Dark Matter, Vikings
Also how to live a bi-coastal life, as a lot of my family lives out east and I realize how precious time with family is.
I'm at that stage in my life where I'm looking for the real deal.
