My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Not actually a waffle. Not actually needy. Secretly a crêpe.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a musician and composer –a classical guitarist by training and banjo player at heart, so my time has always been split between Bach suites and bar stages. I've recently begun to explore creating in other mediums –photography's become a passion, video has become my livelihood, and programming (yes, a squarely creative medium) has captured my fascination.

Sadly, none of this pays the rent. For the past four years I ran my own music PR firm ( here's some of my work: http://youtu.be/GykXT5R-dpE ), but called it quits this past January, on account of PR being rather soul-sucking in nature.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Climbing trees. Falling out of trees.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

–COMEDY
Huge comedy nerd -- since about 17, Stephen Fry, John Hodgman & Eddie Izzard have been my three role models. Also into Kyle Kinane, Kumail Nanjiani, Pete Holmes, Hannibal Buress, Ilana Glazer, Iliza Shlesinger, Sara Pascoe, Jimmy Carr, Aisling Bea, Kristen Schaal, T.J. Miller, Moshe Kasher, Morgan Murphy, Tig Notaro, Natasha Leggero....the list goes on.

–TUNES
Too much music to list here. I'm open to seeing pretty much anything live. Favorite composers are Beethoven, John Luther Adams, Brahms, Pärt & Couperin. Favorite Songwriters are Townes Van Zandt, Gillian Welch & Chris Thile. Favorite album is D'Angelo's Voodoo.

–SHOWS
Basically, just see comedians listed above. Plus Dr. Who. And Sherlock. And everything Attengorough. And Q.I. And Black Mirror. Ok...most BBC programming (writing this, I'm realizing I may be a closet anglophile).

–MOVIES
Huge film nerd. Obsessed with noir, from Bogey to Brick to Blade Runner. Lover of horror, camp, cult or otherwise. Picky with my Scifi. Attempting to get familiar with Bollywood. My comfort-food movies are The Professional, The 5th Element, High Fidelity and Dazed & Confused.

–BOOKS
I read around six to ten at a time, skewing towards non-fiction. It takes me forever to finish. Current titles: Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky, Sex at Dawn, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, The Kings Co. Distillery Guide to Moonshining, Understanding a Photograph, Slang - The People's Poetry, The Emperor of All Maladies, Sources of Indian Traditions.

Favorites: All Sherlock stories, All Bill Bryson, His Dark Materials, Just Kids, Motherless Brooklyn, La Trégua, La Mala Onda, Baltenebros, Soldados de Salamina, Happiness: A Guide, The Universe in a Single Atom.

Poetry: Vera Pavlova, Robert Pinsky, Edward Hirsch, Michael Robbins, Tracy K. Smith.

–FOOD
All over the damn place. Weird, but I'm way into fruit...favorite to eat is a perfectly ripened tomato, concord grape & summer stone fruit. Favorite thing to cook is chana masala, saag paneer and misr wat. Favorite to pickle is kimchi & okra. Currently attempting (and seemingly failing miserably) to learn to make ramen from scratch. Mostly vegetarian, but will occasionally –ok, often– cave when out on the town and fried chicken, cheese burger, or brisket is available.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How whatever random song is currently stuck in my head managed to get there in the first place. ("I think we're alone now?" Really brain? Come on.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Bouncing around the city to see some live music. Or at home, in bed, nursing a bourbon and good book.
