About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Attain fluency in Mandarin, make it to the Atacama Desert, finish reading Infinite Jest, play golf in the Sea of Tranquility on the lunar surface.

ABOUT ME

PHILOSOPHY

Be kind.

It is more important to have someone to eat with than to have something to eat (epicurean philosophy, I kind of plagiarized that one)
