In the past, I've run several small businesses in the technology / marketing / consulting fields, but my heart has always been with the arts and sciences. I've published some dramatic works (mainly as a dramaturg), produced lots of theater, worked as a wasp specialist and amateur unlicensed docent at the American Museum of Natural History (I can give you a tour that you won't forget!), and am working on a popular science book.
I'm a big fan of wine and conduct amateur wine tastings on a regular basis and love to travel to wine regions to meet the people behind small family-owned vineyards trying to make authentic wine. I also love to do historical-philosophical tours of interesting cities & countries; sometimes I host, other times I just listen to the experts.
I also love to cook, and while I am only really confident with a few recipes, I'm always trying new dishes. I believe my roast chicken may be one of my finest accomplishments in life so far.
* Note: I love Manhattan and have lived here for 20 years. However, recently, I've been finding neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Boston, CT, and even some small towns in Europe to be quite appealing. I would never fully sever my ties to New York, but I am open to splitting my time in a more peaceful, fresh-air filled, and smaller spot on the globe.
I'm good at making strangers feel welcome; helping people fall in love with New York, making friends with busboys, taxi drivers, and street artists; and working maniacally toward impossible dreams/projects.
Movies: Anything by Bergman or Kurosawa (all time favorite is "Ikiru"); American classics like "It's a Wonderful Life" and "His Girl Friday;" Soviet comedies like "Devchata"; and newer stuff like "Eternal Sunshine" and "Rushmore." Also have a soft spot for cheesy epics by Lucas, Spielberg, and Cameron.
TV Shows: Flight of the Conchords, Bored to Death, Jeeves and Wooster, Downton Abbey, and Michael Palin's travel documentaries. Michael Scott and his cohorts have gotten me through many trans-Atlantic flights. Update: Community is the best.
Food: I love all food except cilantro. Favorite is Laotian eggplant and squash curry (unfortunately I can only find it in Madison, WI), but will settle for Thai, Indian, or Szechuan. Also of course Italian and all the great new thoughtful, hearty locavore stuff sprouting up everywhere.
Is it possible that the world's civilizations and cultures could go into decline? Are we moving closer to or farther from a world our descendants will be grateful to inherit?
Will I live long enough to see 1) life discovered elsewhere, 2) a grand unified theory, 3) a solution already between Israel and Palestine, 4) nanotechnology and stem cells significantly diminish the threat of cancer, Alzheimer's, etc.
Also, when is the iPad 3 coming out? (Update - why didn't they just call it the "iPad 3"?)
