About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Verwindung. Constant twisting and distortion of ideas that we normally take to be the way things are.

ABOUT ME

I find most things interesting. I love learning new things. I enjoy reading and writing and thinking and listening to music. I also really like doing outdoor stuff and going to concerts. I like eating and adventures and dancing as well. I'm kinda short. I was born in Texas, but I grew up in colorado.

PHILOSOPHY

Being is an ever-changing event from which there is no escape. so stop trying to hide from it. Worrying about how the world "Should" be is futile and pointless. The only thing we can do is to seek the change within ourselves. Also I think we should learn to love the process, not the result.
God is the constant creative force of the universe which gives all things motion and life. To create is to emody god and is the closest we can become this force.
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law
Love is the law
Love under will.

Interests

I Love sounds, sights, tastes, smells, and feelings. I love reading and learning about all different types of cultures and philosophies.lately I have been really into the mayan culture and various types of electronic music.

Music, Movies & Books

I love all different types of music. I am a huge fan of Electronic Dance Music of all types, especially House music. I love Noise music and indie music. Big fan of folk music and country music, and anything tribal.
If it's very avant-guard and strange, very traditional, or very catchy (or all three) I'll probably like it.
Current faves are: Ricardo Villalobos, Frank Turner, La Yegros, The Avalanches...

Some of my Favorite authors are: Henry Miller, Roberto Bolaño, Jorge Luis Borges, Anaïs Nin, Rolf Potts, James Ellroy.
Ilove reading and talking about books. I like to read fiction and philosophy mostly, but Ilike science books every now and then. I also like poetry a lot.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Seeing the most beautiful sunrise i have every seen as i was dancing to some of the best music i have ever heard on the stark empty canvass of the black rock desert at burning man.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help with music. I know a lot of different types and I am a pretty good singer and guitar player, and I love helping people out. I graduated witha degree in music in singing, so I especially love helping people learn how to sing better without hurting themselves.
