About Me


I'm pretty easy going.


Being alive is a very confusing and amazing thing. I don't believe anyone really "has IT figured out." I like to go through life experiencing as much as possible while giving people the benefit of the doubt.


I like music, movies, art, outdoor activities, and on and on. I play a few instruments, make experimental music and make short films. When traveling I like sharing my experiences with others. Also when traveling, I like to actually experience the culture where I am as opposed to staying in a hotel and only doing tourist things.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: (I like to consider myself open to most music but I do have preferences)
-Jazz (avant garde, bebop, just not usually smooth)
-Rock (I tend to get bored with rock from time to time but I still find myself coming back to it)
-Folk (I like folk music from around the world but I tend to listen to a lot of american folk music-new and old-)
-Noise (Harsh, ambient, sound collage, etc)

Movie: (again I like many genres and directors)
-Wes Anderson movies
-Jan Svankmajer movies
-the Cohen Brothers' movies
-experimental film
-some action movies
-not big on rom-coms
-I really appreciate a good story and good cinematography
