My self-summary
Born and raised in San Francisco, been in Los Angeles for almost ten years and very happy here. In between some time in New England and Lake Tahoe. Left coast is definitely the best coast.

I work a lot but like to go on adventures, especially in the outdoors. Always down to explore new restaurants, museums, and all the other gems this city has to offer.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a historian and I work at UCLA. I teach American history and curate a digital history website, and am working on a book based on my dissertation research. Getting paid to do what you love is pretty neat-o.
I’m really good at
archival research, Yiddish translation, hosting dinner parties, sudoku, drinking, cursing, avoiding traffic, dancing, wasting time online
The first things people usually notice about me
my dimples
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: mostly non-fiction and old, last few months Michael Rogin's Black Face, White Noise, John Fante's Ask the Dust and Chaver Paver's Zalmen the Shuster

TV: I prefer Law and Order re-runs to reality shows and I don't do talent contests. Right now I'm all about the Americans - so good - also the Fall, Arrested Development, Golden Girls, Sherlock...

Movies: Not a film buff but always down to watch something new. Favorites include Return of the Jedi, Wes Anderson anything, Quentin Taratino, Will Farrell's entire career... and Lifetime movies

Music: Early 90s hip hop, anything produced by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, J. Dilla, Kendrick, Flying Lotus, Janelle Monae ... jazz and classical too, esp. Russian composers
The six things I could never do without
my dog spot
anchor steam
canyon hikes

*the 49ers are depressing and I am not watching football this season.
Go Dubs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
proletarian politics, 1930s Los Angeles, how to make the world a better place, what I'm going to make for dinner
On a typical Friday night I am
drunk history
