My self-summary
I am someone who is in a constant state of metamorphosis. Always trying to expand my knowledge and experiences. Be it through artistic endeavors with my friends, off the beaten path travel adventures, exploring new parts of the city, or imagining alternative ways of living.

I am learning to live in the moment. To follow the great teachings of Ram Dass. To not take life so seriously. To meet people that will help me grow as a person and add to my spark, not dim it down. Ya know what I mean?

But mostly just looking for a laugh or two. Or eating corn on the cob.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a job and it allows me to live a comfortable life. But most importantly, it allows me to focus on my personal dreams. The compartmentalization of my vocation and my personal life is absolutely perfect right now.

So with that said:
Playing guitar
Learning how to play the mandolin
Writing things
Working in coffee shops
Making plans!
Telling stories!
Eating corn on the cob!!
I’m really good at
Making you feel comfortable. Welcoming strangers into my life. Falling in love with your pet and then missing them more than you when we go our separate ways. Cooking. Remembering important details that you'd never expect me to. Actually watching movies you recommend. Dreaming up ideal futures and then having a conversation about why everyone doesn't share in these ideals. Crying while looking at landscapes. Painting symmetrical things. Cooking corn on the cob.
The first things people usually notice about me
Man, I say 'man' a LOT, man.

I don't really have a physical trait that signals I love corn on the cob, but I wanted to keep the theme of talking about corn on the cob alive.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Chuck Klosterman, John Steinbeck, Isaac Asimov, Hemingway, Orwell. Ram Dass. National Geographic.

The Bright Light Social Hour. Chet Faker. Courtney Barnett. The Districts. Frazey Ford. Mac Demarco. The National.Or really, you can search me on spotify: seensomethangs.

Movies: I don't want to call this a deal breaker but, if you have an intense love for Forrest Gump, I'm talking story wise, SOUNDTRACK wise, character wise, we will most likely be friends. More than friends. That and Waking Life.

Kubrick, Tarantino, Enter the Void, BBC nature docs.

Shows: HBO, AMC, Netflix. Workaholics. Californication. Broad City. I try to incorporate The Simpsons into my everyday life.

Do I need to tell you my favourite food? You know its corn on the cob. But also I went to India just to eat the food. So, that.
The six things I could never do without

You already know what else I think about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hoping it won't be so typical.

Cobs of corn all up in my mind hole.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've enjoyed meals straight out of dumpsters while I was living on a school bus in California. I also ate peoples' leftovers at restaurants. I made enough money busking to survive for a grand total of 4 days. Pure talent my friends, right here.

(I now make a living and buy food at grocery stores, my happiness level has remained the same, fancy that)
You should message me if
you see yourself as a sort of deep thinker, philosopher type. I dig that. But at the same time, if you don't take life too seriously. If you agree with the metaphor 'the sea refuses no river'. That is to say- you accept things as they come. You roll with the punches. Maybe you wanna help me in that department because I still haven't figured it out.

or fuck it, if you have a Vitamix, I'd be down.

or fuck THAT, if you have The Simpsons Seasons 4-10 on DVD, let's make sweet love all night while Mr Plow plays in the background.
