- Cooking. Been my day job off and on since I started working. I'm
currently a cook at a west side slightly WASPy Italian restaurant
where the food is improving. My bosses just let me redesign half
the menu, so I'm actually pretty excited about that. For my friends
I cook all manner of things- sushi is a hobby, and I am all about
the perfectly cooked sirloin steak. I want to get better at curries
and southern barbecue.
- fencing. Though I don't know if I'm "really good". I'm really
good at hitting people with my fencing bag whenever I'm on public
transit. Sorry, sorry, sorry.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. Politics. Injustice. Foreign policy. Cookery and
theatre. Right now I'm thinking hard about how to be as diverse a
writer as possible, become successful at shopping screenplays or
short stories, and to get out of cooking in kitchens full of
intellectually lazy bro chefs who see fit to talk about their dicks
but then fire me for not skipping class to come in.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually in the process of trying to find a good, dependable place
to write, preferably with booths. I really like booths.
Either that or recovering from the combo effect of Thursday night
fencing and drinking. Also board gaming. Over the last year I've
gotten into it in a big way.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
To quote David Sedaris, I have been informed by several reliable
sources that I tend to exhaust people. What I'm really looking for
is someone who is ideologically and ethically similar to me, but
calmer and less neurotic. In other words, someone who might be a
good, relaxing influence on me. I'm not always that good at being
still in the presence of other people.
