My self-summary
In my head: a Ramboesque renaissance man with dual machine guns strapped to his arms

Realistically: a cuddly nerd/creative with a penchant for un-PC thoughts

I'm an old soul and a kid-at-heart. These days, I'm drawn more to authentic connection, aliveness, and beauty in all its forms. I converse easily amongst academic types but have opened up my range a lot. In relationships, I like to be warm and silly, as if we were slightly drunk as a default state. Note the 'as if'
What I’m doing with my life
Largely:
- part-time bioenergy r&d, part-time musician
- playing at gospel church, funk/rnb jams, occasional touring
- salsa dancing
- developing healthy habits that increase aliveness
- random new urban adventures

I'm getting into mindfulness as well, but giving up steak is not going to happen
I’m really good at
reharmonization, lying around in the sun like a dog, touch
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Songs that saved my life: Radiohead, Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis, James Cleveland, Brad Mehldau, The Smiths, Schubert lieder, Beck, Stevie Wonder

Louis Ck, Raymond Carver, Chekhov, Anthony Bourdain, NPR, Marc Maron WTF, Annie Hall, and yes, Anchorman. Or maybe Step Brothers, tough choice!
The six things I could never do without
dancing
food, high-brow and low-brow
ballads (jazz, pop, boleros)
vitamix + tabata trials
off-the-path international travel (e.g., Syria and Belarus)
interiors that set a mood

Not kidding about the food part, my sis and I just waited 3.5 hrs in cold rain for the best brisket in the world
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My dna is probably 10% Pooh bear, but I can get a little dark
On a typical Friday night I am
salsa dancing or gigging
You should message me if
You are sweet, creative yet down-to-earth, and think different
