My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a poet and novelist. I'm homeless and have been for years. I'm shopping for a Rolex. I like to build things. I like to golf and fish. In another timeline, I'm a scientist. In every timeline, good food and good drink keep me from jumping off a bridge. My gray hair is coming in. My pants are colorful. All I need is one mic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the last three years, I've been itinerant, traveling around the country, supporting myself with writing fellowships and grants, living in small artist communities in New Hampshire, New Mexico, Virginia, New York, Minnesota, California, sometimes housesitting or cat-sitting in Oregon, Arizona, Ireland.

I've grown weary of the bohemian lifestyle, but can't seem to escape it. I'm back Seattle now until February when I head to Columbia for a few weeks. Might spend a month in the Bahamas in April (want to join me?) Not sure what state or country I'll be in after that. Probably a lot of them. I just sold my novel. Pub date and book tour in 2015.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, making spreadsheets, teasing apart the fundamental threads of things, braggadocio, sincerity, ill flows, mixing classic cocktails well, living out of a suitcase, cooking, failing better, pursuing things I suck at, playing devil's advocate, nihilism, wooing, contemplating the Lovecraftian horrors that lie in wait with a sense of equanimity, tinkering with computers, Dungeons and Dragons, organizing the perfect Star Trek TNG marathon, memorizing poetry, party games, being honest about my failings as a human, being a human.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Human, male, approx 30 yo, 5'11", non-threatening, humble origins, over-educated, drink in hand, dresses like a solipsist, nice fucking smile, hilarious, listens well, not a fan of small talk, not afraid of opening a variety of worm cans, failure to grasp current pop-cultural references, still listening to mid-nineties, east-coast hip-hop.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Not a fan of desert island hypotheticals. I need too many things. The first that come to mind: music, good food, poetry, the woods, art, the city, love, sex, adventure, twenty-sided dice, books on philosophy of mind, nice cookware, time spent with amazing humans.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The nothingness at the heart of existence, how Triscuits are made, if that writing fellowship has announced winners yet, what the hell am I going to do now that I can do anything, the illusion of the Cartesian theater, what delicious thing we are going to eat tonight, God I need to finish reading Don Quixote.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home, writing the next book, at a bar enjoying a drink and conversation with friends. Dancing? I wish I was dancing. I'm probably cooking dinner or making grimey hip-hop beats. I haven't lived on a weekday/weekend schedule since I quit my professor job in NYC. Tuesday might as well be Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea what I'm doing, why I'm doing it, or whether it will lead to long-term happiness. Poetry is the most stable of my passions. I think about giving it up all the time. I think about giving everything up. It's incredibly exciting.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I seem like a valuable human worth spending a few of your precious and limited moments with. If you appreciate that I end sentences with prepositions, having been an English teacher.
