visual designer by day; all the things by night
private event DJ, cyclist, perpetual interdisciplinary student, food lover with the metabolism of a hummingbird
IG: sacredforest (I promise i'm not a hippie; my last name is 神林)
cooking: i CAN cook- but living alone sometimes makes cooking for myself feel like a musician who's his own only audience member. cooking for others brings me joy
foreign accents and impressions. i sing No Surprises by Radiohead in Kermit the Frog's voice at karaoke
i also occasionally dabble with humor. it's a hobby I've just recently picked up. friends tell me I'm reasonably mediocre. just kidding.
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.
Favorites include: 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
Favorite song is This Must Be The Place (Naive Version) by Talking Heads
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.
oh- and you must also be down to binge on carbs and grease from time to time.
