My self-summary
Moved over from Philadelphia in June 2014 and not looking back. Generally refuse to be bored and spend most of my time being active, outdoors, or seeking great food. I love live music, Ultimate Frisbee, snowboarding, cooking, learning, hiking/camping, traveling, and getting into adventures.
What I’m doing with my life
Searching for the best Tacos in Melbourne. Edit: ANY decent tacos. EDITS ON MY EDITS: La Tortillaria. Done! (only took nine months or so to get there)
I’m really good at
Getting hit by cars on my bike. Butchering lyrics to songs I should know by now. Stacking a dishwasher. And solving two thirds of a Rubik's cube. Not training for distance runs and struggling through them anyway. Sporadic road trips.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm strangely energetic and happy. Or my Americano accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Best movie of all time: Empire Records
TV Shows: I don't watch much TV at all but...The State; No Reservations; Layover; Chopped; and my housemate got me addicted to True Detective last year.
Food: Tacos
Music: Minus The Bear, Portugal. the man, The Districts, Cold War Kids, Modest Mouse, Dispatch, 311, Tedeschi Trucks, Dillon Francis, Pretty Lights, G Love, Soulive, Galactic, Tristan Prettyman, Commonwealth Coir, Band of Horses, Ben Gibbard, The XX, Elliot Smith, Bright Eyes, Passion Pit, Ray Lamontagne, City and Color, Dawes, Soulive, Galactic, Lettuce, El Ten Eleven, Radiohead, Sublime, Bon Iver, Dispatch, moe, Phish, you get the idea.

Or rather, some shows I've been to since moving to Melbourne: Cold War Kids, Gary Clark Jr, Holy Holy (twice!), Shakey Graves, G Love. Looking to add to that list!

Cassettes in a shoebox in my old car: The Empire Records Soundtrack, Ramones, Green Day, 10,000 Maniacs, Counting Crows, Weezer, Some Sweet Mix Tapes, The Beatles, Forest Gump Soundtrack, NKOTB (so serious).

Books I've read recently: Moonwalking with Einstein, David and Goliath, Predictably Irrational, Into the Wild, various other Malcom Gladwell, Ender's Game, some Michael Lewis stuff, Zen and The Art.
Six things I could never do without
Tacos, Hand Coffee Grinder, My Bike, Spontaneity, Chapstick, Music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to do when I finally grow up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinks/Dinner with friends, checking out a gig, or just having an easy one in cooking with some wine. Or maybe baking sourdough which I've been struggling to get the hang of but that's usually reserved for a Sunday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I absolutely love going to the dentist.
You should message me if
You prefer NPR/RadioLab/TedRadioHour over Top 40. Or you want to challenge me at a game of connect four. Or you want to have a guacamole throwdown (you will lose!). Or you're into impromptu trips to foreign cities/countries/continents, specifically South America. Or go hiking on that range I can see on the horizon from my place in Fitzroy, Wilsons Prom, The Grampians, or some other really cool place that I don't even know about. Or ride bikes to a cool food truck. :)
The two of us
