About Tangent Pursuit


Growing up, my mother always told me two things: first, that "God never closes a door without opening a window," and second, "You've got to grab life by the balls." So that's what Tangent Pursuit is all about: opening windows and grabbing balls! Thanks, Mom. You did well.

In my latest quest for world domination and financial success, I have decided to pursue my MFA in poetry at the New School. I expect a large return on investment. What can I say? I'm an optimist. I believe in making the most of our spare time. I believe that when you open yourself to new experiences and opportunities, those very same things begin to open themselves to you. I believe in embracing creativity, practicing a healthy outlook on life and fighting for a more progressive society.

Most importantly, I believe in cheese.
