My self-summary
"I have learned the worst lesson that life can teach...that it makes no sense".
What I’m doing with my life
I work at Northwestern researching a topic that most people never knew/didn't care to know existed. I work for a custom drum company. I write/play music that NO ONE will ever care about.
I’m really good at
Probably nothing. Maybe something.
The first things people usually notice about me
Facial hair. Hair on the top of my head. Craniofacial construction. I, to a surprising extent, receive compliments from strangers regarding these 3 things.

The six things I could never do without
My hands and all of their "digits".
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The past, the present, and the future (mostly, the ways in which one has led to the other, and will continue to). Optogenetics. Space (not outer space, but the philosophical and physical human conceptions of space). Matter. Sound. People, why they choose to act, or not act, in certain ways. How to turn my brain off for a second...Way too many other things to list.
On a typical Friday night I am
Staying in...drinking too much...playing with my dog...authoring the next great american novel...

1 of the above is false.
You should message me if
"Of all the words of pen and tongue, the saddest of might have been".
