My self-summary
People raise their eyebrows when I tell them my weekly diet largely consists of ice-blended mochas, pizza, cheeseburgers, burritos, the meatball sub from Tamarind Deli, coke, and a bowl of ice cream. And then they ask me how I look like this, and I say two things: I only eat one meal a day (but lots of snacks), and mind-over-matter. And then they laugh. And then I say, "No really...mind-over-matter." You have to believe it like that or else it won't work.

I also play ultimate frisbee once or sometimes twice a week, and all that running around doesn't hurt with the keeping in shape either (so y'know, maybe it's that instead of the other thing... but really?! Exercising only once or twice a week?! Something else more magical MUST be going on).

Here's something else I believe: with a world population of 7 billion, people are bound to be different. Wildly, hugely, magnificently different. Big honking differences and little, catch-them-out-of-the-corner-of-your-eye differences. But I'm mainly looking for someone who I'm on the same page with, someone who feels familiar, and sees through the same lens. And we probably won't REALLY know that until we've had a bad waiter at a restaurant together, or arrived 15 minutes late to a movie that one of us was really excited to see (and that one of us would probably be me). I'm not the sort to laugh in the face of adversity (because c'mon, that's rude, I'm sure adversity is embarrassed enough without people laughing in its face about it). Can't we laugh WITH adversity, cause really, aren't we all in this together? Life, much like highway driving, is a team sport.

So to sum up. Find our sameness, celebrate our differences, eat what you want and run.
What I’m doing with my life
Contemplating whether accomplishing goals that have lasting effects are necessarily more valuable than serving this one moment in time. Which is the forest and which are the trees?
I’m really good at
Understanding where you're coming from.

Not always as good at agreeing that you're coming from the right place (Oh snap! Did he just say that?! I don't know what's riskier: the bold honesty of the second sentence, or actually writing "oh snap!").

Also really good at punctuation and grammar.
(how's that for sexy!)
The first things people usually notice about me

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Okay, favorite movies: I’ll start with the not-so-embarrassing ones (at least I hope you don’t think they’re embarrassing)... a bit of forewarning, this could potentially end up being a very long list.. so in no particular order (except maybe embarrassingness), here goes:

Amadeus (safe start, right?), JFK, Braveheart (both Academy award winners, so still respectable), A Few Good Men, The American President, Contact (is that a cool movie to like?). For comedies: The Princess Bride, A Fish Called Wanda, My Cousin Vinny, The Incredibles. Getting a little edgier now: Miller’s Crossing, The Usual Suspects, Fight Club, Seven, True Romance, Reservoir Dogs. And now diving headlong into the never-grew-up, total-guy-movie list, we’ve got: Casino Royale (the new one), Desperado, Bladerunner, Alien (the first one), The Matrix (the first one), Pirates of the Caribbean (again, the first one), The Lord of the Rings (every glorious one of them). And finally the one movie I always cite as my favorite of all time: Big Trouble in Little China (it’s the classic tale of the straight-shooting-trucker-who-helps-rescue-his-buddy’s-kidnapped-fiancee-from-a-thousand-year-old-ghost-emperor-and-his-superhuman-minions, all wrapped up in a big bow of kung-fu -- I know it sounds silly, but there’s something about it that’s terrifically heroic).

Movies that have made me cry: Rudy (when the whole stadium is chanting his name), 50 First Dates (when Drew Barrymore starts remembering who Adam Sandler is), Lilo & Stitch (when Stitch is lost in the woods), 10 Things I Hate About You (when Julia Stiles is on the porch reconnecting with her dad, something about parents bonding with their kids always gets me).

While the big list above is a pretty good taste of favorites, I like a lot of other kinds of movies, too. Among the less commercial films that I’ve really enjoyed include: Into the Wild, 21 Grams, The Savages, Pieces of April, My Own Private Idaho. So my tastes aren’t all blockbusters, but I guess I just like watching the blockbusters over and over again cause they’re so much fun.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stories. I was telling someone not too long ago that I used to say that I was a writer-guy (since working in reality TV, it feels marginally misleading to say the non-conditionally-modified "writer" without further explanation -- it IS writing, but a different sort than what initially comes to mind). But now I'm an editor, and it's also been awhile since I've written anything of substance even recreationally that I no longer feel honest saying anything with the word "writer" in it. Instead I've come to call myself a "story enthusiast." I think about stories -- how they're told, what they're saying, different modes of storytelling, all that kind of thing. It's why I watch TV, see movies, read books and comics. I think I like art and songs for the stories they suggest. It's just where my mind goes when it's not doing something else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a big geek for superhero movies. I can't help it. I so want them to be great and awesome, and they so rarely are. And still that hope of the 14 year-old me is unwavering.
