My self-summary
Hi, I'm Sam. I'm learning, dancing, creating, laughing, collecting experiences. I've been a bit of a nomad in life but am happy to finally have a bit of a nest here in Brooklyn.

Colombia > Canada > Ohio > Chicago > NYC

Generally, I think of myself as open-minded, practical, silly, empathetic, introspective and curious. I place high value on relationships where vulnerability can be shown.

I try to live somewhere in between the realms of being a kid and being an adult.

“When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
-C.S. Lewis

Attempting to travel internationally more. Next planned trip is Chile + Patagonia. If you have experience traveling solo, please message me!

What I’m doing with my life
Software Engineering by day, slipping into semi transparent bedazzled shirts and dancing Salsa in front of large groups of people by night.

Filling my free time with dance, photography, yoga, and a few passion projects / entrepreneurial ventures.

Directing focus on the things that are actually important in life.
I’m really good at
Being intuitive. Keeping an open mind. Being a cat dad. Injuring myself while dancing.

Catching Zubats, especially ones that are on top of a volcano.

Not sweating the little things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm soft spoken.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Very content if you just throw a bunch of documentaries and sci-fi at me.

Carl Sagan's Cosmos, Planet Earth 2(holy. shit.), Tao of Physics, LOTR, ASOIAF, Ex-Machina, alt-J, Glass Animals, Quiet, Ender's Game

Six things I could never do without
Curiosity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That pale blue dot. How I can contribute.

The beliefs of others. The motivations of others. Wealth vs fulfillment. Time vs Value. Psychology and philosophy. Theology. Self-improvement.

How many of Cosmo's hairs have I ingested?

The accuracy of the OkCupid matching algorithm.

Whether the reason I'm still on this website is because I'm an optimist or because I'm a dumbass.
On a typical Friday night I am
These days, probably either out salsa dancing or at home cleaning cat turds.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Some of the most memorable, character-shaping experiences I've had in life have been on mushrooms or acid and I am eternally grateful for them.

Not private about much. Ask away!
You should message me if
You are not only open to new experiences, but can offer me new experiences as well.

You care about others.

You'd like a travel buddy.

You're passionate about something.

You'd like to go Salsa dancing or would like to learn how.

You are curious.
