My self-summary
I approach everything as a chance to play, explore, and find unexpected combinations. This approach applies to how I read and think, how I engage when I am out doing things, how I eat, and how I connect with people. I'm a fairly typical INTP, sometimes an aloof observer, but with a strong E streak.

I like to go see bands play live, or go to galleries and museums. I eat and hang out with friends when I am out, and read, a lot, when I have free time at home. I love oceans, forests and deserts.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment, slowly chewing through my energy and patience in consulting, and in the background hatching plans for my next incarnation.
I’m really good at
Rigorous thinking in parallel with massive intuition. Crystalline prose.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually, first, that I am very engaged, but quite hard to read. After that, my twisted sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Proust, Wordsworth, Plotinus, Heidegger, Calasso, Dante, Leopardi, Kierkegaard. Been reading around in a lot of Buddhist and some Hindu texts lately, too, Pali canon, some texts from the Tibetan tradition, and also some of the vedas (sadly none in the original).

Movies: Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire, Dogville, L'Avventura, Rosemary's Baby.

Shows: Community, 30 Rock, It's Always Sunny..., Mary Hartman Mary Hartman. Rarely watch any TV anymore, however.

Music: Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Laibach, Crash Worship, Portishead, Peaches, ADULT., Klaxons, Little Dragon, YACHT, Foxygen, and most of what's on 4AD. Stockhausen and Xenakis on the classical side.

Food: Indian, Thai, Ethiopian. Typically like very spicy. Nearly vegan.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being, Classical civilizations, animals, texts
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at home reading and winding down after too long of a week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can offer no facts about myself that require this particular variety of ironic distance.
You should message me if
You're creative, adventurous, intelligent, and kind.
