My self-summary
I'm an adventurer, a polyglot, a St. Louis native, a compassionate guy, an educator, a reader, a doer, a try-anything-once-and-most-things-twicer, a quick-to-trust confidante, a level-headed, creative man who wholeheartedly subscribes to the following two quotes:

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.
Unless you love someone, nothing else makes sense.
What I’m doing with my life
I originally filled this out in great detail, but really- where's the mystery in that? I'm happy and make money doing what I do. It's not illegal, and it's not as exciting as, say, capturing poachers intent on killing the last black rhino in Botswana. Ask.
I’m really good at
-taking apart a Land Rover with only a ratchet set and screwdriver
-making eggs benedict and Thai food (not at the same time, though)
-building furniture and designing sh*t.
-ignoring requests to send large amounts of money to Nigerians that I don't know
-being an awesome uncle to twins
-brushing my teeth
The first things people usually notice about me
How unlike Lebron James I look? Friends say that I put people at ease when I meet them- I'm not threatening, or shy, or overly enthusiastic, or standoffish- I'm just approachable me. I always travel by elephant, so people tend to notice that, too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A Town Like Alice and On the Beach (Nevil Shute)
Travels (Michael Crichton)
The Light Between Oceans (Stedman)
Adrift: 76 Days Lost at Sea (Steven Callahan)
Paul Theroux...and I know I'm forgetting a billion others I enjoy. I'm a reader.

Movies: comedies, documentaries, dramas, independent films- the whole gamut.

Music: Auerbach. Wevel. Sultana. Rufus. Natiruts. Vulfpeck. Others.

Food: anything and everything. Sushi. Fried chicken. Fried chicken sushi. Vodka.
Six things I could never do without
1) Hope.
2) my brother (and my niece and nephew, come to think of it)
3) my internal organs (well...most of them: don't celebrate too much, appendix and tonsils, I'm talking to you)
4) frequent trips to an ocean- which is why, of course, I live 600 miles from the nearest one. Dafuk?
5) genuine laughter
6) commas, apparently
I spend a lot of time thinking about
humanity, the plight of others, the ocean, other places in the world, why there is a label on Prairie Farms ice cream that says "keep in freezer", what the braille symbols are for "don't touch"
On a typical Friday night I am
night swimming, listening to R.E.M.'s "Night Swimming". Very "Inception"-like, I know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still think the sound inside a seashell is the roar of the ocean, trapped
You should message me if
you're unbelievably cute, and don't mind dating Cara Delevingne's ex-boyfriend. She's cray-cray.
The two of us
