My self-summary
esse quam videri
What I’m doing with my life
"Good, I hope." is what I had written here. So if you want the cliff notes version I suppose you could stop there. By "good,"
I meant that in the most utterly sincere way possible. I hope to do good every day of my life, and hope that it shows with all I encounter.

But to answer the question more tangibly, I have a Bachelor's degree in History, as well as one in honors Philosophy from a university in Boston Massachusetts.

Since graduating I work full time, as well as hold a part time job until I decide more specifically what I would like to go back to school for. As you may have guessed from the 'philosophy' degree, my love of learning spans many disciplines, so some may say I lack direction.

I spend most of my free time with my family. After spending four years away at school I like to make up for lost time with my niece/god-daughter and her new baby brother.
I’m really good at
Well, this is awkward...because I'm really only good at being modest
The first things people usually notice about me
I feel like people, for the most part, do not come straight out and tell you what they notice first. Probably, because when they notice it first, they don't know you well enough. In any case, I wish people would tell me more often. I would find it interesting to know the impression I had set on someone that I may not have even realized noticed anything about me at all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm no good at picking favorites, as you will soon see.

I love to read though. I suppose if one were to determine a favorite book solely by the number of times he has read it, my favorite would have to be "Pride and Prejudice." Beyond that I'm partial to 'classics' in general. I've read pieces spanning from Euclid's Geometry to Newton's Pricipia to Einstein's papers. I absolutely loved Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics and its exploration of what I can only describe as the latin 'virtu.' Also am a fan of Norburg-Schultz's Genuis Loci and his unveiling of the phenomenology of architecture by defining the human experience based on our understanding on what it means 'to dwell.'
I will probably read the Bible forever, along with the never ending interpretations of it.
For a snapshot glimpse of my interests I'm currently reading "Outliers," by Malcolm Gladwell, "The Plague" by Albert Camus, "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte, but by far my favorite of which has to be "I and Thou" by Martin Buber for his brilliance on the relation of man to God.

As for TV, it seems I get addicted quite easily, so I watch a lot online when I do. Guilty pleasures include House, Bones, Endgame, NCIS, Grey's Anatomy, Big Bang Theory, Community, Mistfits, Game of Thrones, Modern Family, Suits, White Collar, Covert Affairs, Castle.

As for music, I love music for its breadth. Its purely pleasurable aspect and its ability to communicate, whether the storytellers need words or not. Those who can transcend the limitations of language and effect others in such an intense way is profound. I can listen to Clair de lune or Moonlight Sonata tirelessly. That being said, I like music of most genres. Lyricists who are able to weave together lyrics in multiple frameworks that inexplicably come together cohesively are the most addictive. I have fallen victim to becoming obsessed with the song or artist for a while when I come across one like that.

Food...hmmm, I have to admit I may be slightly obsessed with Greek food. Anything with tzaziki and pita and I am content :)
Six things I could never do without
Faith, Family, Friends. I know it's not six, but most everything is wrapped up in those three essentials for me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything, I get sidetracked easily though so I try not to. If you hadn't gleaned so much from my page thus far, or from my comment denoting that I was a philosophy major, I find almost all topics interesting and can dwell upon many notions for extended periods of time...or quite the opposite jump from concept to concept with very little inclination that there was the slightest perceived connection at all..unless you were in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually still at work...this is depressing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Being on here freaks me out a bit
You should message me if
you have something worth saying.
