My self-summary
Okay. So, I really can't live without laughter. I truly believe the apex of every austere gravity to be humor in its infancy. Laugh until you cry, cry until you laugh! Though, at the end of the day, ideas drive me. If it be a song I'm working on, a painting series, design project, or just hanging out, bouncing thoughts off friends over drinks. Some people are preoccupied being something, others are busy doing something. I have a brush. I love clearing my head with headphones, bike, and road. Finding something new, randomly taking that left and seeing where it leads you. Ever since I was a child, I've been fascinated by the senses and their impact on perception. These qualities are near and dear to my heart. I love what I do and wish to build a strong community of like minded people.
What I’m doing with my life
Raise your words, not your voice. Rain grows flowers, not thunder.

-Rumi

When I'm not contemplating the universe, I guess I teach. When I'm not teaching, I guess I make art. When I'm not making art, I guess I contemplate the [BLACK HOLE]

Oh no! Did it again. Completely destroyed the universe.
I’m really good at
Being good. Honestly. Whatever the situation.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my voice for sure. People tell me it's distinct. Second, would be my smile. Cause I'm always smiling, and also because people are probably looking to locate whats making all that noise. Third, my eyes. Because I don't want you looking at my chest. Up here. There you go. Thank you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Anything that helps me learn more about myself, the world, or how to do something.
Classical Literature (Epic of Gilgamesh, Shahnameh, Iliad, the Aeneid)
Poetry (Rumi, Saul Williams)
French Lit (Proust, L'étranger, Les Misérable, Le Petit Prince)
Philosophy (where to start, I'm into Richard Rorty at the moment)
Craigslist misconnections (come on, they're fun)
Seriously, anything about art

Movies:
Goonies, The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle, Irreversible, Eraserhead, Rubber, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain, Babies, Watership Down, High Fidelity, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Ten. This list is a very wide spread =). I would love to watch Women Without Men by Shirin Neshat, but I haven't had the time to track it down. And the list goes on...

Shows:
Sadly, I haven't had a tv in 18 years, so my knowledge of sitcoms and pop culture are nil in comparison to any teenager.

Music: this hurts there's just too much
Oh No, Oh My!, Bob Dylan, Bowie, The XX, Ben Kweller, Cake, Iron and Wine, My Morning Jacket, Starfucker, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, LCD Sound System, Andrew Bird, Horse Feathers, Beck, Miss Li, Soko, Sufjan Stevens, Little Pictures, Gorrillaz, Fleet Foxes, Lykke Li, Nick Drake, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Dø, I'm from Barcelona, The Black Keys. I tried to make that list as wide as possible.

My head hurts...
The six things I could never do without
friends, family, coffee, my guitar, serendipitous moments, and art
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm often recollecting the previous night's shenanigans. Playing back clips of beautiful moments, while giggling quietly to myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going for a bike ride around Sacramento or skipping all that for some time in the mountains. Shows on the grid or in the city. Still haven't been to the new SFMoMa, anyone down? Continually surrounded by an amazing community of people.
You should message me if
If you want to go on a bike ride or grab a pint. I'm really here to meet new people. Anything more will happen naturally. Also, if you feel like adventuring or perhaps discovering something new is always a plus.
