My self-summary
It's important to have inner resources! Like, vast forests and rivers of them.

I'm a native Brooklynite, not for nothin'. One of the last American boys to like poetry. I'm into promoting equity and sustainable living in local communities and am fortunate enough to work in a job that let's me do just that. Most weekends find me in one of our many beautiful city parks or pruning street trees, driving my friends crazy by identifying the local species.

I play a mean guitar and banjo, mostly when barefoot, and harbor secret ambitions of being a rockabilly superstar. Learning to play synthesizer too.

I'm a total beer snob. I've got a soft spot for eastern religion (most useful major ever).
What I’m doing with my life
Adventuring, writing, composing, gardening, volunteering, perpetually thinking of applying for my graduate degree.

If you need to plant a tree, lemme know - I can totally hook you up.

I've been doing a lot of biking and have a 20-pound chain for aesthetic purposes. We all have to make sacrifices to look cool, y'know?

Also creating tons of electronic music.
I’m really good at
playing the guitar

explaining things

On a typical Friday night I am
Out to the bars, at home enjoying 70s horror movies, rockin'out, on a road trip to somewhere, causing mischief

Or getting some sleep for some early morning volunteer project. Maybe I can work on four hours' shut-eye...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am totally afraid of clowns.
You should message me if
You are similarly awesome, you share an intense love for things artistic, musical, and hilarious. And are up for some adventuring. If you play a musical instrument you get +20 bonus points. Or if you can impress me with the most amazing sentence there ever was.
The two of us
