My self-summary
born in Hong Kong to American parents, grew up in the SF Bay Area, been living in WA, The UK and CO for the past several years, been messing around in Nepal and India for a few months, will be back stateside on May 9 but only for 3 weeks or so

starting mid-June I'll be spending several months in Glasgow and then Brighton to hang out with family, drink irresponsibly and see old friends, this profile is primarily for those two places right now then Oregon when I move there in September

I travel whenever possible and have managed to see a decent chunk of the world so far

Off living life on my own terms and more or less winging it, I basically have no detailed life plans beyond "don't die", "finish bachelors at some point", and "keep on the move"
What I’m doing with my life
wandering aimlessly
I’m really good at
writing, directions, finding weird hidden places, making a point, asking questions, working under lunatic deadlines

the thing I'm better at than anyone I know is plopping down in places I've never been before, know nobody in and do not speak the language, then figuring out how to navigate the entire city and managing to purchase cannabis along with finding live music within the first day
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm as pale as death's horse and my beard is multicolored

I like distorted guitars and I like them played hard, fast, and loud with crude production quality
my tastes are simple in this area

Food:
needs to either give your tastebuds chemical burns, be bloody, be fried or all of the above
The six things I could never do without
good beer, medical-grade cannabis, weird books, good people, good music, and disgusting amounts of nicotine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
if there are infinite possibilities and infinite realities then there must be a me that is a perfectly well-adjusted human being along with A) how frightening that possibility is and B) how much I would probably hate him
On a typical Friday night I am
Aimless drunken wandering (sometimes across entire continents), trying to find something worth doing or laying in bed streaming crap with a massive joint in my hand
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a half-crippled left arm, can still use it for a lot of things but will never be the same, was broken in 12 places while mountain biking several years ago, not worth the medical weed card it made me entitled to but it was still one hell of a consolation prize
You should message me if
you want to do some aimless drunken wandering
