What I’m doing with my life
I’m grateful for all the abundance in my life – I am lucky to have fantastic friends, a close family, and a dream job where I’m surrounded by great art every day. But, never one to be too content, here I am.
I’m really good at
Planning trips and giving directions (in another life I’ll be a travel agent or concierge at a grand hotel).
Calling my grandmother every week.
Making Passover desserts.
Writing thank-you notes.
Always getting the best spot at the 9:30 Club (my secret, for now…).
The first things people usually notice about me
Despite my upbringing, I don’t have a Texas accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My musical tastes are equally divided between the classical (Wagner, Strauss, Verdi, Janacek, and Glass, for starters) and the decidedly non-classical (Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, Sleater-Kinney/Wild Flag, Hole/Courtney Love, Neko Case/New Pornographers, Lucinda Williams, Belle and Sebastian, Tune-Yards, Bruce Springsteen, and Fiona Apple).

Favorite plays I reread constantly: Arcadia (and most Stoppard, actually), Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Twelfth Night, Pericles, and Mourning Becomes Electra.

Movies, in rough order of greatness: Three Colors: Red, The Double Life of Veronique, Heathers, Blue Velvet, The English Patient, Dangerous Liaisons, Annie Hall, Howards End, All About Eve, Thelma & Louise, Almost Famous, Melancholia, Don’t Look Now, Broadcast News, Titus, Caché , The Wings of the Dove, and Metropolitan.

Favorite chocolatiers include Bernachon, Jean-Charles Rochoux, Jacques Genin, and Reine Astrid. (That’s what you meant by food, right?)

Books – keep getting sidetracked as I make my way through the new Murakami, the Sontag diaries, and a tall stack of new Pevear/Volokhonsky translations of the Russian classics.
The six things I could never do without
Kalouga bars from Bernachon.
A maxed-out iPod.
Humility.
Air conditioning.
Morning Edition.
A future trip in the works.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I’ll name my future dogs.
DC’s lack of voting rights.
Why The New Yorker insists on using the diaeresis.
Caramels.
