My self-summary
I drink whiskey, write and hack.

My weekday uniform is a button-down shirt, jeans, a brown leather laptop bag slung diagonally over my right shoulder, and a pair of gray wingtips.

Even though the blog-turned-book-deal craze ended years ago, there are two Google Docs with half-thought-through notes that I still update. Even though they mostly taunt me.

Right this moment, I don't know where my keys are. Probably.

I have yet to tire of watching the river approach into DCA out the window of seat 10A. I hope I never do.

I believe details matter.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in DC. This week. It's tough to remember. Capitol Hill is home, again, but a few years back I started to branch out and for long periods not-here. So since 2010 it's been a lot of Atlanta (porches! neighborhood festivals!), a fair amount of small-town England (curry! sausage!), a little San Francisco (nerds! nature!), and finally -- mostly -- home again.

It’s a pretty cool gig. One my 16-year-old self would be proud of me for landing. Great colleagues, fascinating pasts, and, if we're really lucky, solving some knotty problems on our way to building a useful technology. 'Cause it's a tech company, I also play ping-pong. Better than my 16-year-old self would've expected.

Can’t let work define me, though. It's too easy to get caught up in the all-thinking intellectual experience if I don’t get out. I’m at my best when helping something new be built, and playing some part in its construction, even if it's a small and non-obvious part. So spending time in new cities and neighborhoods, and meeting and working with creative types to build new things, help to balance out the tech-and-lawyer-dominated scene that is our beloved District.
The first things people usually notice about me
When I first left DC, the beard would've been a fashion statement. Now it's everywhere. So, not that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
More often than not, indulging a bad Hulu habit. When I have the patience to watch a movie, the "offbeat black comedy" section usually satisfies. Mostly Internet radio, indie channels; the loss of turntable.fm hit me hard. Could stand to be more adventurous - last show at Tropicalia beat anything I saw at RNR last year.

Hands-down, no-apologies, favorite book of 2013: The Four and Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book, Emily & Melissa Elsen.
The six things I could never do without
A good knife.
A great whisky.
Exactly one cup of coffee a day.
Airplanes.
Grammar. Go ahead, criticize my use of em-dashes.
And of course the Internet overbrain, in all of its many bright and pulsating delivery mechanisms.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out somewhere with friends, not out, or in another city. So in short: this question gives you no information.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll get the child actor story in good time. But it's one of my better ones, so I prefer telling it in person.
