My self-summary
Un-self-serious. Wonder-prone. Incurably dance-y. Down-to-earth-esque. Yeah, I've been at this personal growth business for a while now. Quietly tending my personality-garden. Tilling the soils of the self. And now? Oh geez. You just wouldn't believe how dateable I am. Yes indeed. An exceedingly dateable specimen.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently got my Master's at UChicago, and right now I'm applying to PhD programs and working in the loop as a Procurement Analyst. My strong friend-group keeps me pleasantly busy outside of work, and the rest of my time is spent savoring the simple enjoyments of being a being.
I’m really good at
karaoke, halloween, my strong suit
The first things people usually notice about me
The intensity of my enthusiasms.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
[Cracks open the old superlatives archive]

Books: Didion, Dickens, Austen, Wittgenstein, A Visit from the Goon Squad, Saul and Patsy, Little, Big, The Ask, Wolf Hall, The Age of Wonder, SPQR...

Movies: The Babadook, Dark City, Don't Look Now, In the Loop, Burma VJ. I mean I guess I need to spend more time in mainstream land? The latest Mission Impossible though. Super great.

Shows: 30 Rock (duh), Parks and Rec (the early seasons), The Shield

Music: The Magnetic Fields

Food: I'm an adventurous eater! It's hard to find a cuisine that I don't like. All vegetables (especially beets, eggplant and zucchini). Most fruits (especially strawberries and mangos). Team taco over team pizza.
The six things I could never do without
1)a quiet place to live and
2)read my books;
3)knowledge of spring and
4)the possibility of walks;
5)my lucky chair,
6)my fancy, pin-striped pants
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The filibuster. The metaphysical implausibility of the everyday. My own beliefs and what causes them. Other people's beliefs and what causes them. Paradox. Paradox. Paradox.
On a typical Friday night I am
Haunted by the memory of a typical Thursday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was voted "most shy" in high school. Now I'm a social butterfly! Who woulda thunk?
You should message me if
I'm a kind, sensitive, upbeat guy. I'm settled and stable but not boring. I love getting to know people, and I genuinely like in-person meet-ups, so message away.
