New England native, Tennessee educated, now a Ph.D. candidate at UW. I’m usually playing rugby when I’m not reading and translating ancient stuff. I love language, words, and quick wit.
I love sharing. October. Food. Stories. Time. Pictures. Milkshakes. And dogs.
I did see Mozart's birthplace recently. This doesn't make me better at anything--but it's a fun fact.
I have better words than Trump.
I love investing in people. I get excited when other people get excited about things. I wanna know what people care about.
Tolkien, the poetry of Wordsworth, I prefer more classic literature. Reading is more than decoding some semiotic system--truly, even in one's own, native tongue, reading is an act of translation. Of converting words to thoughts, images, ideas, etc. It is this endeavor that I find quite appealing.
Movies: The Grand Budapest Hotel, Dead Poets Society, The Shawshank Redemption, 500 Days of Summer, basically anything Marvel puts out, Blackfish, How to Train Your Dragon [1 & 2]. I will probably ask you what your top 5 favorite movies of all time are.
Shows: Game. Of. Thrones. Stranger Things is a new recent favorite. If you think the LOST finale was good then we will have something to debate.
Music: Largely depends on my mood. I love acoustic stuff--Damien Rice, Coldplay, Mayer, DMB, Mumford, etc.
I have a sweet tooth and wish I didn't. Just hand over the chocolate already.

Why I don't ever have enough shelf space for my books. Every time I get a new bookshelf, I'm out of shelf space again. It's a nice problem to have, but makes it difficult to keep my apartment clean.
How I become increasingly convinced that I was born either a few years too early or a few years too late.
Honesty and forthrightness and whether those qualities maintain value in dating contexts anymore.
Also my dog is a dog model.
Definitely if you're into honesty. If you're into communication and grace. And if you want to have all kinds of awesome adventures and good conversation.
