My self-summary
I've been around the world in a tea daze.

I'm bigger on the inside than the outside.

I've lived at least 3 lives and expect that number to grow.
What I’m doing with my life
Coding by day, jiu jitsu by night, hangin' with folks on the weekends. Fairly standard stuff for now. In a past life I was a traveling programmer, and in the future I hope among other things to be a NOLS instructor (nols.edu). At the moment my feet are pretty firmly planted and I'm enjoying just having a good groove, trying to grow into the highest expression of myself.
I’m really good at
thinking, moving, music making, writing...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like rebel comics and outlaw musicians, heretical thinkers and dangerous ideas.

I'd love to revel in the exquisite rapture of sounds well composed (by others or ourselves), or digest and discuss ideas from visual or textual media.

I won't go into a list of all my favorite media (after all we have to leave something to talk about)... suffice to say I am a music junkie, a book fiend, and a total foodie. If you have good taste I'm sure we'll overlap on something.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Depends... highly varied. Generally whatever I'm thinking about I'm thinking about very intensely. This week I learned how to use a new machine learning technique. Next week maybe I'll be thinking about Karl Popper and the scientific method. Or the dialectical nature of the Buddha-dharma. Or wondering whether there is some coming metamorphosis for humanity which can positively recontextualize and sublimate the nightmare of history into some heretofore unknown beauty and meaning. Will we ever wake up? How am I a part of this coming-into-consciousness?

I'm all over the place but there's an underlying theme of growth and discovery driving and uniting it all.
On a typical Friday night I am
depends on how the week went and what the last few Fridays were like. Gotta recharge the batteries every now and again. When I'm out, though, it's usually to gatherings/events involving tea, art, music, or some combination of the above. You won't generally find me in any bars, but if you do it'll be divey and I'll have whiskey.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been through the ringer and made it out the other side whole and happy. Life is weird.
You should message me if
You think hiking the John Muir Trail or even the PCT sounds awesome.

You can gimme danger, little stranger.

You agree that Bill Hicks is a modern day prophet.
