My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a writer and a reader, and I used to be a scientist.

Lived in Paris for a while in college and in Okayama and Kyoto, Japan for three years after. Love the lit, film & graphic graphic novels of both countries.

I've studied memory, sleep and dreaming in neuroscience labs, written fiction about sympathetic murderers, articles about electronic skins and implanted memories, interviews with comedians and doctors.

I've worked as a teacher, translator, psychology researcher, house painter, and park maintenance tech. Never burned any corpses, but worked with a guy who did, at the hospital.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Freelance writing for the Atlantic, Fast Company, GQ, Matter etc. & on a documentary film about sleep & dreaming.

Writing. Reporting. Reading. Exploring. Traveling whenever I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm enthusiastic. Too curious to act aloof.

Writers: J.D. Salinger, Faulkner, Woolf, John Barth, Haruki Murakami, David Foster Wallace, Jonathan Franzen, Nabokov, Kundera, Frank O'Hara, Yukio Mishima, Kerouac, Ginsberg, Camus. I also love to read history-- e.g. Japanese-American history by John Dower; American Revolutionary history by Joseph Ellis and David McCullough-- and science writing by folks like Oliver Sacks, Atul Gawande, and Jonah Lehrer.

Music: Conor Oberst. folk singers Paul Curreri, Dave Van Ronk, and Devon Sproule. jazz musicians Charlie Parker, Thelonius Monk, Coltrane, Mingus, Ellington, and The Bad Plus. The Flaming Lips, Why?, The Magnetic Fields, Bright Eyes, Smog, Modest Mouse, Elliot Smith, and Weezer. also some top-40 music, like Lady Gaga, Lil Wayne, and The Roots, and old country music, like Hank Williams.

Movies: dramas, smart comedies, and psychological thrillers. love auteur filmmakers like Woodie Allen, Francois Truffaut, Wang Kar Wai and Pedro Almodovar, also lighter comedies like Judd Apatow's. classic thrillers like Silence Of The Lambs, and old film noir. 1950s movies-- e.g. All About Eve; Sunset Boulevard; The Apartment-- and I have a soft spot for courtroom dramas-- everything from Otto Preminger's "Anatomy of a Murder" with Jimmy Stuart to "A Few Good Men" with Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholas. Documentaries, too, especially true crime & science & history.

Tv: Girls, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, The Wire, Arrested Development, and Six Feet Under; or sometimes documentaries. Oh, and I also love Community & 30 Rock, & Freaks & Geeks is probably my favorite non-cable series ever. I like How I Met Your Mother, too, because I like Jason Segel, and anybody else from that original F&G cast.
