My self-summary
Romantic poetry, the occult, comics, hypermodernism, politics and trying to be decent, the Libertines, anarchist tendencies, that darned rock n roll music. And sunsets and walks on the beach/graveyards? An aspiring rock star who thinks that certain songs can save your life and have a magic all their own (no, really!)
What I’m doing with my life
Singing in a band called Tin Flowers that's playing around Boston and writing lyrics, music reviews, and poetry. My day job is working at Boston College and helping art professors with various things.
I’m really good at
Reading, writing, cooking, singing (hopefully), sleeping in - I've been told obscure music and film facts are also my forte.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes (brown), lips, and some early grey hairs.

The six things I could never do without
There's more to life than books you know but not much more. Oh and cookies - really, nothing beats a good chocolate chip cookie.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Weird ideas about morality and ethics, modernity, romance, film, the past, and ideas for my band.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to a show or reading something out of the piles of library books I have.
You should message me if
You want to grab a drink and see something at the Brattle, go on an adventure, explore, go to a show and listen to something new.
