About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To learn!

ABOUT ME

I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught.
-Winston Churchill

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

PHILOSOPHY

I like stimulating conversations, especially about books, dreams, and life. I like lifelong learners and the passionate. I like wit and sarcasm. I love creative individuals who want to bring joy and art into the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Fantastic Mr. Fox (and pretty much every other Wes Anderson movie), Casino Royale, V for Vendetta, The Count of Monte Cristo, Mean Girls, The Princess Bride, Forrest Gump, Les Choristes, Dead Poets Society and much more. I'm also a huge fan of terrible Syfy movies. Sharknado. Piranhaconda. Red: Werewolf Hunter. Mega Python vs Gatoroid. Sharktopus. Dinocroc vs Supergator. I have a problem.
Music: Nothing that gives me a headache (Skrillex, I'm looking at you). I go from Franz Ferdinand to The Beatles.
Books (where do I begin?): I'm a classics junkie. That being said, most works by: Stephen King, Roald Dahl, Agatha Christie, Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, George Orwell, Alexandre Dumas, Edgar Allen Poe, VLADIMIR NABOKOV, Alexander Pope, Jane Austen, William Makepeace Thackeray, J. D. Salinger, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, John Keats, Leo Tolstoy, Shakespeare (oh how I love the Bard), O. Henry, Emily Dickinson, and a lot of other authors I've forgotten. ...Also sudoku and word search puzzles.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My most amazing experiences have been backpacking through Western Europe (including getting stranded in Barcelona at midnight and following a group of 11 or so Irish lads to their hostel and grabbing a beer later) and publishing my own book!
