I like surrounding myself with others and I like being a host. I
like it most when others are happy and I hope I can always offer
good to anyone in need. I come from a family of teachers and find
it difficult to consider too many other professions which are just
as noble, selfless, and true.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing for a legal affairs newspaper where I cover law firm
bankruptcies, new hires, fee arrangements, and office expansions. I
also do a little bit of freelance work writing about music.
I’m really good at
I have no idea if I'm necessarily "good" at it, but I adore
writing. Not just journalistic, but creative writing, too. I know I
want to keep doing it for a long time.
The first things people usually notice about me
Glasses. People ask if they can wear them and then ask me how they
look. I don't know. I'm not wearing my glasses.

Books—As I Lay Dying, Cannery Row, One Hundred Years of

The six things I could never do without
4. Loved ones
6. Whale sharks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I'll finally switch from being a part-time writer, full-time
journalist to full-time novelist, part-time reporter. I also think
about space and sea creatures and buildings and when I'll finally
buy another pair of yellow hi-top Chucks.
On a typical Friday night I am
out with friends in San Francisco, having dinner or going to bars
or just catching a movie, or at a show or somewhere else. Not home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
carbohydrates are impossibly underrated in today's American
You should message me if
you're double dope!
