My self-summary
I'm a person!
What I’m doing with my life
Last year of law school. Focusing on business and technology law. Large dreams of entrepreneurship. Small dreams of finding a job that lets me work very very hard.
I’m really good at
I'm a businessman. I've consulted for startups, nonprofits, major corporations, artist co-ops without a buck to their name. I'm awfully proud of the work I've done. My clients provide me endless entertainment.

I'm a writer. I write about a novel a year. And a short story here, a play or two there. I just can't help it: words get me high.

I'm a maker. I blacksmith, turn wood. I love makerspaces where I can groove in on what other people are working on. Somewhere between Myst and Riven there is an Age for me.

I'm a cyclist. I like little sprints for exercise and long cruises on a quiet Sunday. I've been on two tours and I'm dreaming of a third. I volunteer at the Bicycle Coalition of Maine, mostly on legal matters. When I'm bored in class I lurk on r/bicycletouring like it's my fucking job.

I'm a traveler. I like wandering strange cities and hiking mountains on the other side of the world. I like art museums the way some people like respiration.

Life is short... but I'm still going for 100% completion.
The first things people usually notice about me
I asked some friends. For better or for worse… here are their answers:

”You have really pretty eyes.”
“You need a shave.”
“Your necktie. Which is tied in a knot that hasn’t been used in, like, a hundred years.”
“Shut up.”
“You’re ugly and nobody will ever love you.”
"Are you putting fennel seeds in that?"
“You smell like orchids have been fucking.”
“You’re wearing a suit, WHY ARE YOU WEARING A SUIT???”
“You’re being attacked by ice bears.”
“You’ve got very pretty eyes.”
“This is for OKCupid isn’t it?”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I know some brilliant people with completely different tastes than me. It's not so much what a person likes; it's why they like it that counts.
The six things I could never do without
Macchiatos at Tandem on my way to school
Brunch at Caiola's on a lazy Sunday morning
Chocoflan at Taco Trio when I've been biking laps around Cape
The lunch bento at Miyake... as often as I can
Mint tea at Omi's when I'm curled up in the window-seat to write
Cocktails at 188 on a quiet Sunday night
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The characters in my next novel. The startup I dream of up-starting. Where I can go to meet people who like to talk the way I like to talk. What wine pairs with Portland.
On a typical Friday night I am
making sure my night isn't typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have miles to go before I sleep.
You should message me if
you like to talk
and want to see
if you might like
to talk to me
