visual designer by day; all the things by night
private event DJ, cyclist, perpetual interdisciplinary student, international man of leisure, lover of food and eating without feeling the need to document every meal and share it on the interwebs
(promise i'm not a hippie; my last name is 神林)
i also occasionally dabble with humor. it's a hobby I've just recently picked up. friends tell me I'm reasonably mediocre.
ride or die for: Malcom Gladwell
I think I've seen Point Break, Trading Places, Weird Science, and Big Trouble in Little China more times than any other movies. love Lost In Translation, Amelie, Pan's Labyrinth, Yojimbo, Royal Tenenbaums, Being John Malkovich, and many many others
series: probably all the same ones you binge watch. also anything narrated by David Attenborough, Werner Herzog, Peter Coyote, Carl Sagan, Sigourney Weaver, or Morgan Freeman
music: right now: this. https://soundcloud.com/poolside/contact-high-mixtape
PERFECT summer feels mix of downtempo disco/Brazilian
let's talk about food...
think about soy sauce. sesame oil. cilantro. cumin. lime and salt. steaming rice and corn tortillas. butter. caramel. chocolate. frangipane. peaches in the summer; satsumas in the winter. truffle fries. soup dumplings. zaru soba. black sesame ice cream. oolong milk tea with boba and lychee jelly. lemon ricotta pancakes.
you must also be down to binge on carbs and grease from time to time.
