I really don’t have enough time to justify wasting so much of it, but distraction is the strongest drug, so here’s to my failures.

I’m a chess and art history enthusiast, and I’ve been known to try my hand at contributing to both to varying success. Games are another timesink of choice, though not nearly as much as they used to be — it’s a personal goal of mine to someday once again find myself as engrossed with a game as I was being 8 years old and playing Final Fantasy 7 for the first time.

I also loosely follow the NBA and have been known to tune into the FIFA world cup, but I’d characterize myself less as a sports fan and more so as someone who likes to see human potential pushed to its limits.
