Someone once asked me, would I rather spend my last day on Earth with my loved ones or be sent to a different planet with a complete stranger.
Well, for me this is a really easy question. I'd spend it on Earth with my family and friends because other planets are largely inhospitable to humans. Mars, the planet most similar to ours, has an atmospheric pressure of 1/150th of Earth's. Within minutes of arriving, the stranger and I would perish. Our organs would explode and the moisture in our bodies would boil. That sounds like a horrible way to die so I'll take 24 hours at home thanks.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from law school and passed the bar, but I'm not a lawyer. I founded a relatively popular satire magazine. Currently, I am a creative producer for an organization that operates large video game competitions. I think that probably generates enough follow up questions so I'll just stop there.
I’m really good at
being creative when inspired by last minute panic.
I have a great short term memory and an even better short term memory.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like reading fiction, because in today's modern world of multiple-tab internet browsing and sports merchandise, it is nice to have an island of calm where you can focus your thoughts on one thing.
I read historical fiction about vikings and balance that out with Jonathan Tropper and David Nicholls. I like the version of Pride and Prejudice without zombies and book version of Game of Thrones.
I'm sad that Freaks & Geeks got cancelled. I am a hipster Wire fan. I enjoyed the 1st seasons of The O.C. and Community.
I watch movies more than once and like talking about them. I recently saw Boogie Nights for the first time and I can't believe I waited this long.
I'm a big sports fan. I read and watch the NBA, NFL, and college football. I enjoy playing board games too -- the more weird and goofy and fun the better.
I listen to Bon Iver and Explosions and assorted remixes.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
if you're too cool for bad puns, the internet, or re-reading a good
book, I'm probably too dorky for you.
On a typical Friday night I am
Asking myself, "what would make a better story?"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of the biggest disappointments about becoming an adult is realizing that you and every other adult actually has idea what they're doing. Aren't grown ups supposed to have things figured out? Why did I listen to so many...
