My self-summary
Just moved back to the Philly area after living in CO for the past year. I'm looking everywhere for the mountains, but I don't see them..

I'm looking to meet new people who have similar interests.
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished a doctoral program in Clinical Psychology. I started in private practice in the fall 2013, and I conduct research with musicians on the side. I'm excited that I'm finally able to do the work I want, I guess all that hard work is paying off :)

I've created two separate meetup groups for INFPs (my Myers Briggs personality type). The first was one here in Philly, and the second was in Denver, CO. I'm a big fan of studying personality in general, and also of the INFP personality type. I can usually tell someone's MBTI type within the first 1-2 hours of meeting them.
I’m really good at
Playing music
Goofing off
Mediating (a.k.a. "smoothing things over")
Writing and listening to lullabies
The first things people usually notice about me
1. Sense of humor
2. Beard
3. Compassion
4. Intelligence

Six things I could never do without
Yerba mate, chocolate, working out, friends, family, music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to make the abstract more concrete
On a typical Friday night I am
Out somewhere in either West Chester or Philly
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have many stories, ask me in person
You should message me if
You want to explore (or re-explore) Philly with me.

Also, I work in Warminster & New Hope and am open to meeting someone in those areas, since I spend alot of time there.
The two of us
