Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

i'm the senior creative at a large bay area museum. i also teach
graduate graphic design.
at some point i'm hoping the MFA thesis i completed a couple of
years ago will morph into the full length book i want it to be.
it's about theme park design.

i have an interest—well, bordering on obsession—with mid-century
modern furniture. particularly the broyhill brasilia and lane
acclaim lines. as such, there is often more furniture in my
apartment than there should be, as i'm constantly buying pieces and
refinishing them and reselling them.
i play (in descending order of proficiency) drums, guitar, bass and
piano. i'm obsessed with disneyland. i have a tiki bar and a tiki
mug collection. there are probably over 1,000 books in my
i will always be a jeans and t-shirt man but i have a sizable
collection of aloha shirts; one of which i will don if the occasion
i type in all lowercase.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
identifying typefaces at the drop of a hat. playing a song on the
guitar after hearing it once. gin rummy. puns. grammar humor.
giving head. getting head.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i'm enthusiastic, yet with a healthy dose of cynicism. i like to
make people think. and laugh. i'm tall. i'm sharp as a tack.

sci-fi, historical biopics, anything long and slow with lots of
talking and gorgeous cinematography. 80s comedy (1st gen SNL cast
type stuff). various personal cult classics.
T E L E V I S O N
i have trouble with a lot of current TV because i don't like shows
where the camera isn't fixed (wobbles). mad men, however, is
beautifully shot on a traditional dolly setup. with the best
production design on the scene today. rejoice.

R.E.M. was my first true love; i'm kinda sad that they have decided
to call it quits. even if their last few albums totally sucked. in
my youth i was a bit of a skate punk. still am a bit. i'm the guy
who will insist that "the old shit is better" no matter who we're
talking about. ps. my youth circa 1994–1998 was dedicated, heart
and soul, to a now-not-so-small band from san diego that was once
called just 'blink.'

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

america, the empire in decline. what i want to do to (for) you.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
reading. at a bar with friends. still at work. out on the town with
you. sex later.
