About Me


There is much to say...though I can surely say that my life, as I feel it is going, is a continuing process of exploration, growth, struggle, and love for art and nature...I live in hopes of someday affecting and helping those in need of help - be it animals, the environment, or people.

I am largely hedonistic though at the same time cherish uncomfortable periods of time where one needs to navigate through and attempt to come out with greater understanding and harmony.


A lot of music. I play the viola, with much classical training and experience. I play the guitar/bari ukulele for my own pleasure. I love all types of music. Broadly: folk, indie, electronic, classical, psychedelic rock...

Philosophy. Ranging to existential philosophers. Mainly Camus, Sartre, fiction of Dostoevsky (and Camus). Modern stuff like Bertrand Russell, then contemporary stuff like Sam Harris (had a big stint reading the atheistic literature of the "4 Horsemen"). Most recently and probably most profoundly, I'm exploring Taoist thought - predominantly Alan Watts.

Other interests: visual art, surrealism, illustration, alternative lifestyles, introspection, aloneness, travel, reading, special human relationships/connection, the esoteric, film, humor/comedy, nature, animals, complexity and overwhelmingness of humanity, other places and people, the sky, female beauty, tapestries, books, libraries, words, photography...
