What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing my Masters in Education right now. Looking to become a highschool English teacher.

I write poetry, perpetually changing projects that I hope to turn into my first book.

I get the bulk of my money planting trees in BC every summer.

Je veux pratiquer mon francais, mais je ne parle pas bien maintenant.
I’m really good at
writing, reading, discussing various thinky things, giving massages.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm very out going. I talk to strangers a lot. So most people's first impression of me is probably either "that's a nice man" or "why is this guy talking to me?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mostly poetry: Robert Creely, Robert Frost, Delmore Schwartz, Edna St. Vincent Millay, I've been really into https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDLwivcpFe8 lately.

I'm obsessed with Shakespeare.

Music with good lyrics. Singer songwriters. Townes Van Zandt, Warren Zevon, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young... Also Duke Elington, Toots and the Maytals, and Al Green.
The six things I could never do without
1) Books.
2) My dog Ritchie (he's a German Shepard/Border Collie)
3) My friends.
4) Music
5) A steady stream of new people
6) i'm sure there's one more
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Poetry. Language. Bruce Springsteen. Shakespeare.

I spend a sad amount of time thinking about hockey, for someone who wants to be an intellectual.
On a typical Friday night I am
Havin a time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to stammer when I was nervous or excited about a thought (often). Every once in a while I still do.
You should message me if
You like intellectual or creative exchange. Especially about literature or philosophy. Especially about poetry.

If you want to play backgammon (esp. if you want to do $1 points)

Tu veux aider moi pour pratiquer francais.

Also if you'd like to walk with me and my dog.
