My self-summary
Passionate, funny, and thoughtful guy getting his MFA at UT.

The armchair anthropologist in me is convinced that as a rule of thumb people on the East Coast tend to ask "Why?" while y'all in Austin ask "Why not?"

I can't tell if I'm an introvert or an extrovert.
I love a good debate.
I love adventures.
I love podcasts.
I love used bookstores.
I love coffee.
What I’m doing with my life
Looking for friends, travelers, lovers and adventurers.
Creative, pragmatic, eclectic guy here who's passionate about art, politics, and new experiences.
I’m really good at
Espousing obscure facts, giving massages, summarizing a play or movie concisely in a sentence (conversely I'm not nearly as adept at summarizing a play or movie concisely in three or more sentences), having strange and remarkably interesting jobs, telling stories, listening to people, improving processes, analyzing cultural narratives, making people laugh, procrastinating, getting things done, making hot toddies.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyebrows or eyelashes, and depending on the person, my butt.
