You know how it rolls. Mid-twenties job-hopping, skills-seeking, soul-searching, acting out the standard 20-something ritual that maybe, oh, about 100,000 people in Boston are acting out...grad school. The twist here with me is that the rest of my time I'm out playing music, and not just in my bedroom.
Music/art, and travel are things I love. I got back recently from a year and half in the desert, and now I hoard things that you don't tend to find so easily out there, like spring water and cheese let's say.
Creating vocal and instrumental melodies is 100% my favorite thing to do on Earth. The voice memo app on my phone is a godsend. It's a guarantee that if you're around me long enough, you might one day find yourself walking down Comm Ave. with someone who looks like they're whispering sweet nothings into their iphone. Don't worry, it doesn't look TOO weird.
-Knowing my way around
-Negotiating with jaded soundmen on stage
-Finding a spot in Boston to parallel park...makes me feel like I've earned a Master's in urban living
The thing I hate in life above all more than anything else: The Green Line
- My ethnic ambiguity...my god that sounds dumb, but still, give it a guess. You'll be wrong, I'm sure of it, but that's alright, I'm used to it by now.
- My countenance and demeanor...I'm very relaxed, I get dreamy, and I love listening to others talk. I may get lost in what you say.
- Any and all Kesey - Sometimes a Great Notion (all-time favorite)
- Any and all Hesse - The Glass Bead Game (2nd)
- Any and all Huxley - Eyeless in Gaza (comes in 3rd)

TV: MadMen is ridiculously good. Other than that I really don't watch TV. I do watch Celtics basketball with Mike and Tommy Heinsohn obsessively. However that's not so much TV to me as it is religion.
