My self-summary
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching refugees, working as a freelance writer and editor, and running a creative writing group.
I’m really good at
Sitting. Standing. Leaning forward. Leaning back. Leaning to the side. Falling over. Lying prone. Kneeling. Squatting. Standing up. Spreading my arms. Flying away.

Living really close to Canada.

Being an INTP, an Enneagram 5/4, and a Libra.
The first things people usually notice about me
My air of mystery.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Fiction: 1984 and The Pillars of the Earth are my two favorite novels.

Nonfiction: A Short History of Nearly Everything, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers, Retribution, The 48 Laws of Power

Poetry: Mary Oliver, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Lowell, T. S. Eliot, e. e. cummings, Wallace Stevens, Robert Creeley, Seamus Heaney

Music: I'll listen to almost anything except country.

Food: Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, seafood, pub food.

Drinks: I've always been a beer connoisseur, but after living in Belgium, I'm probably a full blown snob. I'm particularly into Porters and Belgian Trappiste ales, but I'm always up to try something new. I also enjoy a few different wines occasionally. Pinot Noir is my favorite.
The six things I could never do without
Late summer sunsets, breathing in fresh cut grass, curling up in cold spots on the mattress, forests' restless rustling, the silky taste of ice cream, the exotically normal faces in a foreign country...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What other people must be thinking about. Nature and how old the earth is. Places I want to travel to. Famous quotes, like: "History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme."--Mark Twain. How short life is. How absurd it all is. What I need to do to live like Anthony Bourdain.
On a typical Friday night I am
reinventing the wheel.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was a theater nerd in high school.
You should message me if
you're awesome, too.
