My self-summary
'I am a book I neither wrote nor read'

Iconoclast meets bon vivant

I really enjoy music, books, sound conversation and meeting new people. If you do also chances are we'll get along.
What I’m doing with my life
If you want the most straightforward answer I essentially divide my time between 3 roles in no particular order
1- musician and dilettante -Ill try to spend a couple hours most days playing a little saxophone (maybe some guitar) or reading things or bullshitting. Lately though items #2 and #3 have been making time and energy for this more scarce
2- grad student learning new and exciting things (computer science!)
3- working in hospitality which I happen to actually enjoy
I’m really good at
tracking anecdotal coincidences in my day to day life (including the Tim Leary story, The Library Burglary, and 56 MILLION VIEWS)
The first things people usually notice about me
You'd have to find out for yourself

Maybe that my hair's a little silly and that I make a lot of eye contact. Probably smiling based on where you caught me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors/poets: Shakespeare, Herman Melville, James Joyce, Robert Anton Wilson, Stephen Crane, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Aldous Huxley, Marshall McLuhan, Jonathan Swift, Buckminster Fuller

Food: Thai

Music: Very eclectic and always growing my collection so I can't really say I have favorite favorites but if you love music or performing in any genre chances are we'll have a lot to talk about.

Not really sure I have established favorites with the others but you should turn me on to some cool movies, especially if they're documentaries
The six things I could never do without
loved ones,
my bike,
used book stores,
my saxophone,
good conversation,
new music (as in new to me)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
music, good reads, absurd jokes or concepts, humanism, great poets, ethnopharmacology, the mushroom kingdom, hermeticism, the future, the healing power of faith,

becoming a better me

comparative beliefs and ways of thinking about the world.

why do people need to be so fundamentally afraid of or pissed off at one another?

the numbers 23, 56, and 333

"Where is the Tao?" (A: ! nO evoM)

"Are there moons, are there worlds, where the lost shall endure?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeing some live music and/or passing the bottle with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm into angels

Also, if you wrote "that I'm on this site" or something similar , chances are you are much too cool to talk to me (or anyone)
You should message me if
You want to exchange youtube videos of weird and adorable animals.
