My self-summary
I intended to become a philosopher but now aspire to be a bureaucrat.

I'm an explorer of life who thinks this is all rather absurd. But I'll enjoy the beauty I find everywhere.

I enjoy music, cycling, walking long distances, fun-but-serious discourse and discussing politics. I also love camping and hiking but this city isn't very welcoming to that (Rock Creek Park is a slight panacea).

I am both intellectually and physically active, the former is a requirement in a partner. The latter is a nice bonus but not a requirement.

What I’m doing with my life
Working on a career, grad degree, and my own business, while trying to live. My equilibrium is "doing too many things at once."
I’m really good at
Analysis of ideas, synthesis of broad research topics, and general systemization.

Getting way too into new hobbies at the expense of the things I ought to be working on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Rock, metal, ambient, house, dub and experimental stuff. [1]

Movies: 8 1/2, O Brother.., Clerks

Authors: Bill Watterson, Tolkien, Chesterton, Aldous Huxley, Heidegger, Hobbes, Plato, Douglas Adams, Aristophanes, Dostoyevsky, Oscar Wilde, Stephen King.

[1]: In no order: Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Biosphere, Bassnectar, Mala, Distance, Hyperdub stuff, Savatage, Prins Tomas, Tim Hecker, Gantz, Shackleton, Boards of Canada, Burial, The Clarks, Yes, Marillion
The six things I could never do without
1. Headphones
2. Bike
3. Good writing instruments (good pen or Drafts on iOS, been on Scrivener recently)
4. Snackable food
5. A sense of adventure in life
6. Conversation, debate, and analysis
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next snack.

How to improve the efficiency or quality of what surrounds me.

How to improve the quality of my next snack...
On a typical Friday night I am
Weary of my week of Apollonian studies, I engage in the Dionysian.

Exploring the city on foot or by bike, trying to find secrets (back alleys, small music scenes, great cycling hills).

Listening to music at home or out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I usually buy cow's milk, but sometimes I buy almond milk instead.
You should message me if
If you somehow create beauty of some sort (eg art, music, ideas, something).
If you find the best conversations are when you don't agree at the end--but both sides are clearer.
