About Me


To push cultural boundaries and engage in the human experience.


I could appraise myself with the best adjectives and be like very other pompous middle-class white kid with a backpack, but I'll spare you the pretensions.

What you need to know: I live in Philly, commute by bike, and try to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The important thing is that I stay engaged. Human interactions are seemingly the only thing worth a shit in this world.

I'm working on my degree from Temple. I don't have any career aspirations just yet, but in time those things should develop. Aside from school, I like parties, shows, etc. The twenty-something garden-variety type stuff.


Eastern Europe, farmer's markets, post-modernism (I have my own pretensions), writing, music & languages.
