My self-summary
I'm a person who is really into philosophy, film, language, new politics, social justice, and a lot of other things too. Going to grad school for a Ph.D. in philosophy. I'm cynical and sarcastic sometimes, but don't worry, I love a lot of things and I have a crush on everybody.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on philosophy at SBU. That's about it, at the moment. Figuring out what "radical" really means politically and personally, and how to recognize the insincere or the cynical or the nihilistic in the "radical."
I’m really good at
Reading and understanding theory. I'm getting better at writing about it. I want to be good at: playing the drums, writing stories, cooking, everything.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hair, beard. But my hair is short now, so.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My own life, where I'm headed, my friends, how we construct meaning, how we relate to each other, how hard it is for our generation to be sincere.
