My self-summary
Thoughtful, intelligent, and kind.

Though, in the appropriate circumstances - such as with the enthusiastic consent of my partner - I can be downright mean.

You...probably aren't my type. I'm sorry. It's nothing personal. Mostly, it's statistical.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an investor with a writing hobby, and a hope that someday the two will switch.

I used to have a startup. It became a runs.

I travel a lot. I just got back from a five month tour of Europe, Asia and the Middle East. I rode on the back of a camel in the Wadi Rum for six hours. If I ever see a camel again, I'm going to shoot it!
I’m really good at
Producing smiles, arbitrage, not judging people for what they want, making toasts, staying calm, being honest, waiting for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I met a Chinese guy while on the train from Guangzhou to Shenzen. Neither of us spoke the other's language but we managed to carry on a conversation of surprising fidelity with the translation apps on our phones. We talked about foreign policy, facebook (he was curious, but I don't use it), and the education system in China, of which he was critical. Especially, he said, the lack of sex education. At this I asked his age. Twenty-two.

Ah, I said. That is a hard age. The women are beautiful, and the men don't know anything.

I have no idea what people first notice about me.

I hope you like text.

Nonfiction, which is its own creature: Why I Write, The Selfish Gene, The Big Short, Under the Banner of Heaven, Half the Sky, Team of Rivals, The Bottom Billion, Bossypants, Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman, God is not Great, The Second World War (Churchill's), Hiroshima, The Better Angels of Our Nature, and pretty much every essay David Foster Wallace ever wrote.

Fiction, which is its creator's, at first: 1984, The Sandman, Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, Girl Genius, Neuromancer, Erfworld, The Great Gatsby, Nana to Kaoru, The Gods Themselves, Game of Thrones, Breakfast of Champions, The Windup Girl, The Old Man and the Sea, The Lord of the Rings, Slaughterhouse Five, A Christmas Carol, Watchmen, Hyperion (the book), The Forever War, Huckleberry Finn, White Fang, and NONE of the novels David Foster Wallace ever wrote.

Poetry, which is not in style, but fuck you: Not Waving but Drowning, Flanders Field, Good-by and Keep Cold, When You are Old, Daddy, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, An Essay on Criticism, On Seeing the Elgin Marbles, Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night, The Walrus and the Carpenter and anything by Emily Dickinson

Live, which never sounds like it does in my head: The Merchant of Venice, Major Barbara, The Mikado, Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, and any ballet with music by Tchaikovsky

Movies, which are increasingly difficult to distinguish from TV: Lawrence of Arabia, Ratatouille, Serenity, Pulp Fiction, The Muppet Christmas Carol (I am serious, the muppets did the best adaptation of this story to date), The Godfather, Casablanca, and anything by Miyazaki

TV, which I watch more of than I admit: Firefly, Mad Men, FLCL, House of Cards and all right all right Archer, damn you H Jon Benjamin and your hilarious voice.

I don't really have strong feelings about music. I listen mostly to classical.

Food, which is an embarrassingly large line-item in my budget: Yes. Very, very, very yes.

The same thing we do every night, Pinky.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once spent the better part of an afternoon reading The Economist's style guide. I regret nothing.
