My self-summary
When I'm happiest: Traveling anywhere, sailing the Bay, hiking in the Idaho mountains, doing something I haven't done before, nights out with friends when the chemistry is perfect and the laughter is contagious, doing anything new, getting into the groove on a project, and in those rare and indefinable moments when the world is in total sync, nothing seems to have consequences, and everything is possible.

When I'm least happy: When I’m busting my ass for someone else’s bad idea, switching from summer daylight saving time to winter standard time, when I just can't get the words out, when I ponder the immense popularity of reality TV, when I waste a beautiful day on pointless minutiae.

A little bit more:

I bought a house in the near burbs and I am still trying to decide if it’s an asset or an albatross.

The more “successful” I get, the more the American notion of success leaves me cold. The answer lies somewhere in rejecting without retreating, reducing consumption without reducing contribution. Some days I'm left tugging at the chain of convention like a restless hound dog; other days I'm inspired.

In past lives, I’ve been a theater techie, a movie casting agent, a taxi driver, a rider of the rails. I love the lost souls, the beautiful losers and the freaks, but I have never been that cool. I’m drawn to the chimes at midnight but I also like my sleep.

Most of all I value curiosity, compassion and all the little live things.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a nature writer and television producer ("nature shows" - such that there are any left, and books when I can). Work has sent me on many adventures and granted me some incredible experiences and I'm grateful for that. Lately I've shifted focus in a way that keeps me in DC more -- maybe too much.
I’m really good at
Writing transitions and tease-outs. Sitting and geeking out watching animals do animaly things. Talking politics. Finding the lyrics to a song to fit any situation. Sailing, diving, setting up a camp and hanging my food. Being a bit of a flâneur. I was a good snowboarder until I left Idaho and 10 years went by.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some books read recently: Freedom by Jonathan Franzen; Earth, The Operator's Manual by Richard Alley; Monkey Mind by Daniel Smith, The Sacred Depths of Nature by Ursula Goodenough.
Favorite book ever may be A Walk on the Wild Side by Nelson Algren. Also like Stegner, Steinbeck, Abbey, Ackerman, Kundera...

Some recent movies I really enjoyed: In the Loop, Moonrise Kingdom, In Bruges. I want to see Amour. i think Chinatown is one of the best film scripts of all time. Okay, so I liked that movie Ted. I thought that fucking little bear was funny. Don't judge me.

Some music i might be listening to: Sharon Van Etten, The National, The XX, Destroyer, Frightened Rabbit, Radio Dept.
Eternal Playlist: Mark Eitzel (American Music Club), Billie Holiday, Tom Waits, Lloyd Cole, Nick Cave, The Smiths, The Beatles.
The six things I could never do without
Air, Light, Water, Food, Shelter, Sleep, Love.
Everything else I can live without.
However, I would prefer not to part with the following (in no particular order): friends, down time, live music, conversation, travel, sex, music, sailing, SCUBA diving in blue water, my laptop, the mountains, the sea, coffee, dark and stormies, blueberries
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Independent film / series ideas and book proposals; politics; how to save the Bay through popular media, how to do my own work without going broke, shucking it all and sailing away.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I see an abandoned building I sometimes make a mental note of it, in case things get really bad and I need to live there.
