About Me

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite books are classics or historical fiction:
-Pride and Prejudice, Emma
-Here Be Dragons, etc. by Sharon Kay Penman

Though occasionally I go into other stuff:
-fantasy books by Brandon Sanderson
-Harry Potter (of course!)

And my favorite TV shows are mostly sit-coms and procedurals:
-How I Met Your Mother
-The Good Wife

As for music, I haven't yet figured out why I like some songs and not others but catchy beats I tend to like songs but not artists or bands. Soundtracks are a particular favorite.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-once got a ride from downtown Nashville to campus by a guy riding a bicycle-powered rickshaw and wearing a leprechaun outfit

Teach, Learn, Share

I am conversant on some really random topics like:
-early modern English stained glass painters
-the Portuguese Inquisition in Goa, India
-Michelangelo's drawings for Tommaso Cavalieri
-Pharonic influences on Coptic art
-theories of who the mother is in How I Met Your Mother

... but I would love to hear and talk of just about any sort of topic!
