My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I talk in silly voices and think about the history of imperialism. I'm not allowed to use the Oxford comma in my day job. I love to travel to out-of-the-way places (most recently Newfoundland, too long ago).

I like secrets, legend, and forgotten history. I try to beat down cynicism with a sense of wonder. I do not always succeed, but I don't always fail either.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write about wine, spirits, and cocktails for a print magazine you haven't heard of. I write about video games online. These things are less different than they seem.

I am required to drink at work. Which is okay, because I love whiskey, wine, and cocktails. I'm not a wine snob, just a wine fan, and I care about the story more than the taste.

I am working on a short story collection that I like a lot and a long poem that I keep changing my mind about, but enjoy writing for its own sake. Sometimes I do stand-up, but only when I'm invisible. I wear white more often than I should but not as often as I want to.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking about the deeply underrated Byzantine Empire
Complaining about the nefarious House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha
Sitting on the floor instead of in a chair
Drinking and defending rosé
Listening to songs I really like ten times a day (does this count as a skill?)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The beard, or its absence, both of which are routine. Being tall, which is also routine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lord of the Rings, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, The Silmarillion, A Game of Thrones. Eco, Borges, Wodehouse. 19th century adventure novels. 20th century classic noir. Non-fiction about exploration, the Arctic, Siberia, and imperialism. Non-fiction about 19th century business tycoons (this is a bad habit).

Lawrence of Arabia, The Man Who Would Be King, Excalibur, The Sword in the Stone, Jurassic Park, Aladdin.

Game of Thrones, Twin Peaks, Arrested Development (incl. season 4), Seinfeld, South Park (I used to work for Comedy Central, cut me some slack), Daria (hmm) (I'm retracting that 'hmm' and now fully stand by loving Daria).

Favorite music: Paul Robeson. I'm bad at discovering new music. Any suggestions?

Favorite food & drink: Salsa verde and cilantro. Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Mexican. I like to talk about fancy restaurants, but don't actually like to go to them.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Fancy whiskey
Tomatillo salsa
An all-white outfit
Traveling to cold places
Wordplay, preferably stupid
The silly names of NYC neighborhoods... Dutch Kills? Sheepshead Bay? Vinegar Hill? South Park Slope?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Fall of Constantinople
The phrase "keep it seacrest, keep it safe"

Whether I would rather go to Svalbard, Alaska, Greenland, Kamchatka, Iceland, Grytviken, or just cut to the chase and go to Antarctica.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching the sun set in Prospect Park, then pouring whiskey or wine for friends at my apartment
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know how to ride a bicycle - and I don't really feel want to learn how.

I not only read Gawker, I comment on Gawker. This is absolutely a bad habit.

I'm debating whether this is too private to admit so freely. Hmm.
