• Something about me people might not know

    I was the host and DJ of one of the longest running underground hip-hop radio shows in Houston.

  • The natural talent I'd like to be gifted with

    I’d like to be able to breakdance.

    I am an advocate of using the scientific method where possible, I try to solicit alternative viewpoints, and I’m not afraid to admit when I’m wrong.

  • My hobby

    All aspects of music – performing, listening, collecting, curating. In an odd sort of way, I credit my interest in music with being a major factor in shaping me into who I am.

  • The most valuable piece of advice I've ever received

    Don’t be afraid to fail; if you’re not failing occasionally you’re probably not pushing yourself far enough.

  • My theme song

    Mayer Hawthorne, “The Ills” – this really ties in with the advice about not being afraid to fail.
