About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore the world, find its problems, fix them...

ABOUT ME

Some nights, I stay at home and read until 3 in the morning. Other nights, I drink way too much vodka, don't remember the night, and am brought home by my friends at 3 in the morning.
I am a PhD student in Anthropology at the University of Chicago and I understand both myself and the world as it relates to Anthropology. I read often and widely, from philosophy to science fiction. I play trumpet and piano, am a distance runner and poor football (soccer) player (having coached both at the high school level), love the outdoors, and am open to pretty much anything that counts as a life experience.

PHILOSOPHY

celebrate difference through an open mind and a firm conviction (without dogmatism) in your own beliefs.
