“The sound of rain needs no translation.”
– Morimoto Roshi

I am a student of Zen Buddhism. I read constantly and love to talk about books and ideas, movies, science, different cultures, personal experiences, and the nature of reality. I love to question things. I love to laugh. I am fascinated by lots of things, including people, the apocalypse, adventure games, paleontology, surrealism and the absurd, time travel, steampunk, science fiction, interactive fiction, yoga and pilates, history, NLP, New York, language, and the human mind. I am childfree, live with two cats, and am mostly but not entirely vegan. I live, work, and write in New York City.
