My self-summary
I work for a small nonprofit, and in my spare time I like to travel, read, hike and explore the outdoors. And of course have existential freak outs about what I'm going to do with my life, which I do almost on a weekly basis. I'm a pretty good cook. Or so I've heard.

When indoors, I'm quite nerdy. I like languages, history, and books.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm fostering shared heritage and cultural exchange in the Middle East. Or, I work for a cool company that does. See abrahampath.org.
I’m really good at
chatting with bartenders, building travel itineraries, keeping a tidy house, adjusting to life changes
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm usually inappropriately dressed for the weather because I run warm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
chinua achebe, chimamanda adichie, naguib mahfouz, khalil gibran

amadeus, casablanca, wes anderson, lost in translation, lots of others i can't think of right now

anthony bourdain (past and present), new girl, freaks and geeks, broad city, cosmos, doctor who, sherlock, call the midwife, the fall, broadchurch

the white stripes, the kinks, amadou & mariam, fela kuti, the smiths, the shins, lauryn hill, and other stuff! ***edit: currently OBSESSED with the hamilton soundtrack!

also, being a stereotypical white person in a lot of ways, i'm really into podcasts! radiolab and TAL especially.

and i basically like all food ever.
The six things I could never do without
a book
an adventure to look forward to
my mom ( I know, aww)
skype
indian takeaway
wool socks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what i want to be when i grow up
On a typical Friday night I am
having a drink with friends or roommates, or maybe going to new hampshire to spend some time outdoors
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i ate an entire pack of hobnobs in one evening once. okay, more than once.
You should message me if
you want to!

and if you have a beard, a dog, and european passport, i'm yours.
