My self-summary
I'm nothin' but a stranger in this world; a shy pansexual author, mathematician, musician, and casual hedonist.
My Briggs-Meyer type is listed as INFP and/or INTP on every personality test I've ever taken.
I always root for the antihero.
I like making elliptical allusions to things that few people know about, often resulting in awkward silences. I'm still laughing inside.
I probably sing more often than I speak; I make no claims about the quality.
I am not sure if I know much about epistemology.
Chaos is a friend of mine.
I know too much for my own good.
I get entirely too much joy laughing at stupid and silly things.
I have left the doors of perception wide open.

I'd like to get to know you better.
What I’m doing with my life
I just graduated with honors from Arizona State with degrees in poetry and physics. Right now I am taking a break to do work and research before heading off to graduate school. A great deal of that time is spent reading textbooks and academic papers to get ahead in this whole mathematical physics game. Shit's tricky. I'm hoping to get a Ph.D fellowship somewhere where I can do research and teaching in theoretical and mathematical physics.

Clearly I am a wild and crazy guy.

When I'm not doing any of that, I'm playing music or writing, or just generally trying to maintain a Zen-like laid-back attitude. Trying.
I’m really good at
...making music. I used to study music performance academically. Now I experiment in my free-time.

I'm pretty good at math. It is one of the few things in this world that I feel like I understand.

Published poets and novelists with well established careers have told me my writing is exceptional. I am not entirely sure I agree, but who am I to argue?

I am also pretty excellent at riffing over bad movies. I can throw a bad movie party like nobody else.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a loud voice which completely betrays the fact that I am a textbook example of an introvert. I blame coming from a large Irish Catholic family where one has to yell to get a word in edgewise.

I am something of an amateur contortionist. I often find myself sitting in weird, uncomfortable looking positions without realizing it until someone points it out to me. I've built up a pretty good repertoire of tricks too.

Anything spicy. I also really like Italian and Chinese dishes. Though honestly, I love trying new things. I like variety.

TV: I don't watch it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sexuality and sensuality and the significance of emotion.

What the hell is wrong with politics these days. Seriously, it's the most fun I have getting angry.

Why the Universe seems to be fucking with us.

The great blackness above us, the quivering emptiness between us, and the interactions which hold us together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wandering the city aimlessly in a euphoric haze, typically up to no good.

Or, I'll be nursing a glass of red wine or Irish whiskey while listening to free-jazz.
The two of us
