My self-summary
Hello!

I'm a teacher, musician, and nerd. I've been living in Philly for quite awhile now and really love it. I'm into:

-Books
-Songwriting
-Sci-Fi
-Card/Board games
-Being a nerd
-Music
-Synthesizers
-Guitars (Gibsons forever!)
-How nice parks are
-Cooking
-The very ungainly ball of hair that the adoption center told me was a dog. I call him Bombur.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working as a music teacher, independently in Philadelphia and through a school out in Ardmore. And teaching music at a preschool. I love teaching, and it's so fun to when someone discovers what they can do on a piano. It's also hilarious how many weird things kids say on a daily basis. I have many a story to tell.

I'm also trying to put some of my songs back on a stage with a couple of my friends. Mostly using piano, drums and few gnarly synthesizers. So far we're pretty good ;D
I’m really good at
Reading. I actually can sort of speed read if I really want to...but it's never as fun as taking my time.

Writing as well. Though I have trouble coming up with good plots. Maybe someday I'll figure out the whole story arc thing.

A friend also referred to me as their Obi Wan Kenobi. So I may have hit my peak...unless they're Anakin I guess.
The first things people usually notice about me
My purple sunglasses 😎
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, 2001: A Space Oddysey, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Marriage Plot, The Virgin Suicides, The Phantom Tollbooth, Roverandom, The Graveyard Book, 1984. The Picture of Dorian Gray, Rendezvous With Rama, Stranger in a Strange Land.

*Clearly a trend of science fiction and fantasy happening here.

Movies: All time favorite is Lost In Translation. Runner up goes to 2001 A Space Odyssey. Honorable mentions include Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Moon, Interstellar, Inside Out, Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Inglourious Basterds, My Neighbor Totoro (and thus far every Miyazaki film I've com across) Alien, Aliens, Stranger Than Fiction, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and other movies that somehow make you blissfully happy and crushingly sad at the same time.

Shows: Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Parks & Rec, New Girl, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Bobs Burgers, Star Trek

Music: Lights is my all time favorite. She's my synth pop best friend. Also really love Chvrches, Halsey, Paul Simon, Good Old War, Death Cab, and all kinds of stuff.

*****I honestly just need someone to listen to Lights with.

Food: Recently went down the rabbit hole (har har har) of veganism...It's a lot of fun. Still figuring out my favorites. It's pretty amazing how many awesome vegan recipes there are. I just discovered Govinda's on Broad Street....so if you want to get there I'm in.
