My self-summary
Recovering grad student. Things that matter, in no particular order: social justice, anti-oppression, anti-racism, anti-classism, anti-sexism, baseball.

Read good books, eat good food, know good people. It's a solid philosophy.

I teach history courses. My lecture slides are top notch. One student thanked me by saying no teacher had ever made him read so much.

I cook a lot and I cook well. I eat at restaurants less and less as I find I cook better than most of them. Alas, I don't have the counter space to bake things. Seriously, it's like a postage stamp of room. I can barely dice an onion on my counter. My most dangerous kitchen implement is my mandolin.

Most of my life choices are made for the benefit of my cat.
What I’m doing with my life
Living the good life.
I’m really good at
Reading. Writing. Cooking. Telling dark jokes. Criticizing bad movies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tell a lot of stories. I have a deep voice. I laugh loudly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Moby Dick, Blood Meridian, All the King's Men, Oryx and Crake, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, and a million books on early American history.

Music: Everything that can be said by some dudes with a couple guitars, a bass, and a drumkit has been said.

Like all good humans, I love the "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack.

Movies: Don't ask me about how many times I've watched Master and Commander.

TV: The Wire, Breaking Bad, The Simpsons, Rick and Morty, Mr Robot, etc. Lots of great stuff out there these days.

Food: Hey, Good Luck is pretty great, right?
The six things I could never do without
Let's assume "Friends, Family, Breathing," etc are implicit.

1.) Books. I love to read. I'm lucky to have reached a point in my life where I can fully indulge that.
2.) Coffee. I love that Rochester has a pretty good coffeeshop culture.
3.) The internet. It's wonderful.
4.) My pen. You never know when you have to write something down.
5.) My cat. She's the chillest bro-cat ever.
6.) Music. It pleases my ears.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The strange popularity of kickball in Rochester.

Corollary, why I'm still in Rochester.
On a typical Friday night I am
Nights hanging in with close friends are more and more attractive to me as I become an old.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tell people I never drink soda but I drink Dr Pepper at least once a week. The shame.
You should message me if
You have a silly sense of humor
