i will give myself five sentences right now and then i'll go to sleep cause i'm too tired and jetlagged to devote good time: i am a white boy from houston texas (USA) who went to a big public school (Lamar) and then a little fancy boarding school (Choate Rosemary Hall) for high school; a little hippy liberal arts school (Hampshire) and now a nerdy and intense university (Rice) for college; and a grimy and dilapidated bagel shop and then a ionic liquids development research lab for work. i play drums, and i enjoy most styles of music. "you do free jazz for a couple years and then you get to where anything goes. some stuff goes sour, but it still goes." recently i've decided that it's totally worth it to be weird.
