My self-summary
Professor, artist, adventurer.

I spend my days outdoors - running, hiking, farming - and, at night, I dive into cultural pleasures like movies, books, and music. To put it simply, I enjoy the world, even though I listened to the Smiths a lot as a teenager.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach art and philosophy courses at a local university and also run an arts council. Despite a demanding work load, I insist on living a life filled with pleasures, thrills, and enlightenment.
I’m really good at
I grew up in Appalachia where folk intelligence and practical knowledge go hand-in-hand, and I inherited the ability to work with my brain and my body. Keeping callused hands but a soft mind has made me adept at many things. I'm just good at doing stuff. I don't know how else to explain that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I carry myself confidently but remain very humble.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I go through periods where I devour genres. I'm currently reconnecting with my homeland, so I've been listening to bluegrass, folk, and classic country. But, that hasn't stopped me from listening to the National, the Decemberists, and Father John Misty on the side. I even threw on Ice Cube's "Today Was a Good Day" as I woke up last weekend. And you know what, it turned out to a be a damn good day. Thanks Cube. You da best.
The six things I could never do without
Olive Oil - I use it on everything, and it pairs really well with more olive oil.

Crockpot - I cook a lot and just started making Indian and Moroccan food. My neighbors are not happy. Weird smells.

Baseball Glove - Having moved many times since college, it's the only thing I've carried with me from home. I use it to save baby birds that suck at flying and to keep cucumber sauce off my hands when I eat gyros at 2am.

Foam Roller - Gotta stretch out the hammies.

Laughter - I enjoy absurd humor that makes the world delightfully strange. Mitch Hedberg is my patron saint.

Wisdom - I am always in the pursuit of finding, knowing, and losing myself.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...when Disney will release Toy Story 2.5: Andy's Puberty Years. Awkward.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing whatever I want to do. I love being an adult and having that power.

Breakfast for dinner? Pass the syrup.
Music show? Movie at the Tivoli? I'm there. My will be done.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Occasionally, I hike in the nude. I also shower in the nude. I'm that extreme.
You should message me if workout because you eat good food, and you eat good food because you workout. It's a vicious cycle.
