But here I am now, sorta suspecting that the digital realm might be the place, after all.
So what of me?
I love to make people laugh. When they neglect to laugh, I encourage them to do so at gunpoint. That usually helps.
I am in perpetual awe of the human story, and I sometimes suspect that we are nearing its climax.
I once pursued dreams of being a magazine journalist, but have evolved beyond them. Though the road from journalism to where I am now professionally was long and occasionally harrowing, I love where it ended up.
Once, I raised a puppy for The Seeing Eye. My motivations were a mixture of legitimate altruism and a desire to experience the basic joys of raising a baby dog. The dog's name was Dillie and she was the smartest, most joyful puppy I've ever known. If she hasn't retired by now, Dillie is leading a 70+ year-old blind woman through the streets of Manhattan.
I'm originally from New York City, but I'm in love with San Francisco. It's just so damn beautiful here, even with the cold-ass summers.
