Art/Books/Cocktails/Politics. In that order.
What I’m doing with my life
Co-Director at a rare art bookstore/contemporary art gallery. Split time between between NYC and the Hamptons.
I’m really good at
Abolishing chance with a throw of the dice.
The first things people usually notice about me
My mystery accent. I also have a birthmark above my left ear, but
it seems most people think I got a bad haircut.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Theodor Adorno, Samuel Beckett, Walter Benjamin, Vladimir Nabokov, Karl Marx, Charles Baudelaire, Franz Kafka, Gertrude Stein
Shomei Tomatsu, Peter Beard, Dadio Moriyama, Miyako Ishiuchi, Ken Schles, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Takuma Nakahira, Alexander Krull
Charlie Chaplin and Larry David sum it up.
Benard Parmegiani, Bibio, Naoto Taguchi, Avro Part, Dan Abrams, Autechre, Andy Stott, Susumu Yokota, Oneohtrix Point Never, Robert Hampson
Thai, Vietnamese, and Italian (but homemade)
The six things I could never do without
Just pick 6 random things from either Sharper Image or SkyMall magazine. I cannot live without those.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do hot dogs come in packages of 10 and hot dog buns come in
packages of 8?
On a typical Friday night I am
Fighting off Deebo.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes Skrillex makes me feel amped.
You should message me if
You selected 6 things from Sharper Image or SkyMall for me.
(Nota bene: since SkyMall is now defunct, if you have a full run of the publication [1990-2015], contact me so I can start collecting its rarified remains!)
