Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved back to Brooklyn because I'm a writer and enjoy being
a tired cliche in real life. I also kind of love the city. No place
like home and all that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm shopping my first novel around right now. Just moved back to
Brooklyn and pretty much all my time so far has been spent either
writing or doing paid editorial work on someone's PhD dissertation.
I'm beginning to forget what sunlight looks like.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I write. I edit. And I am very good at both. I've been doing a lot
of work lately on a new form of ethics by reexamining man's
epistemic relation to the self. I used to box and wrestle.
Sometimes I sculpt. I'm also really good at taking a fall.
Oh, and I'm a good listener. I 'spose a lot of people would say
that, but it's true. I love hearing people's stories and their

I wear rose colored glasses. Literally, I bought pink tinted
prescription glasses just so I could make that joke. Big red koi
tattoo on my forearm.

whatever catches my fancy. Been listening to a lot of Ellen Allien
and MSI recently.
Been reading a ton of Questionable Content lately. That and Welcome
to Nightvale are my current everyday outlets.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books. People who can carry on a conversation. Whiskey. And then
those three things again.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever book I'm writing. If complex philosophic interpretations
of the self's epistemic relation to the self can have any practical
application. Whether or not I care at all about practical
applications of abstract theory. Where my keys are.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Bar hopping? Seeing a show? At a reading?Working, maybe. I'm on a
self set schedule at the moment, so for me Friday is the same as
Tuesday. I haven't turned my Netflix back on since I moved and I am
beginning to think I'm not going to.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

My only friend is the revolution. And Will. Not necessarilly in
that order. I have an absurd phobia of rollercoasters. Oh, and when
I first got here I had two black eyes, a busted lip and a hole in
my tongue. I used to play ship's mast.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I suppose if you're are a leftist, a writer, an artist, an
anarchist, feminist, postmodernist or are fun. Or aren't fun. I'm
actually beginning to think that all my favorite people could would
probably describe themselves as not very fun at all.
Most importantly if you are gritty, scrappy or filled with
