My self-summary
I'm a quietly passionate person, just like most other people who prefer looking for people on the internet. I play in bands, I work, I read slacker philosophy. I can generally be found in any given secret sanctum. If I were full of myself, I'd put something like "I am an urban sage."

Avid people-watcher. The world around us operates on a simple internal logic, generally one we are not privy to. But you get those little glimpses, the tips of the iceberg!
What I’m doing with my life
Short-term: become the best food trucker i can be, master the metro bus system, sample all the libraries

Long-term: live with my band, save up for an Associate's in something useful.

Life goal: master the way of the Fool (a.k.a. be more like Louie C.K.)

Spare time: assemble a cast to record Phase 1 of my four-part transdimensional Gilgamesh concept album.

Six things I could never do without
As I've adapted to my new life in Austin, I've discovered one thing after another that once was necessary to my life and wellbeing, but now is only optional.

That said, i always have a pad of paper and a pen on me. If it isn't written down before I forget, it's lost forever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The ways people fit into complementary roles with each other. Jung called it archetypes, media studies calls it tropes, and MBTI enthusiasts call it types. But the world is cyclical, with wheels within wheels, and we are recurring themes, ripples on the surface.
On a typical Friday night I am
If not making food for profit, watching psyched-out movies and improvising in the kitchen. But generally making food for profit.

Otherwise, looking for drum circles and other collaborative music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My first celebrity crush was Sarah McLachlan. She did this nose crinkle in the video for "Adia" that you just have to see.
You should message me if
You like live rock shows or chill bars.
You can fill a conversation without much assistance.
You don't mind occasional dalliances into the mystic.
The two of us
