I'm a low-key vagabond ESL teacher currently in Vladimir, Russia.
What's important? Intensity and variety of experience. Spending days well - life is days, life is weather, life is meals.
I like biking and walking, especially in new places, reading, and music. I love meeting strange people.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music - a little of everything. Some favorites are King Crimson, the Beatles, Here We Go Magic, Wolf Parade, Sufjan Stevens, Tool, Meshuggah, Boards of Canada.
Movies - I'm not a big movie guy, but I love the Coen Brothers. Funny and depressing is a good mix.
Books - Samuel Beckett, James Salter, Lydia Davis, Chekhov. Biography.
