Mostly I read, smoke, work, and moonlight as a Stage Manager/Volunteer Coordinator with a slight love for cooking.

The six things I could never do without
A Flexible Schedule
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Places I want to go and how to get there, things I want to read, how to make a case for urban zombie survival, when's the next time I'll be on a plane, going back to Berlin, if something will make a good story, if something will be a good place for a story.
On a typical Friday night I am
1) Playing lots of phone tag which leads to making plans throughout the evening that usually evolves into a late dinner or meeting up at a bar or three.
2) Going to a show or an exhibition
3) Just hanging out at my apartment; enjoying take out and scrabble.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing beats the feeling of setting foot in a new place and that I have a deep rooted dislike for wasting what could have been a good time.
You should message me if
You're, also, willing to try anything once.
