My self-summary
Every time I try to fill this out, I feel like I'm writing an ad for a used car on Craigslist. "Like new! Properly-maintained! Handles well! etc." I'm not really keen on trying to hock myself, I suppose.

I enjoy the simple things in life -- meaningful drunken human connections, violently strong coffee, extreme backpacking, transgressive literature, divine holy banter, blackmarket cigarettes, treacherous, depraved cityscapes, Dionysian debauchery and dogs.

I haven't got much time for boring people. What is a boring person? A person with an unmarked passport. A person who's never truly gone foaming-at-the-mouth mad. A person who puts career above all else. A person who values responsibility and temperance and moderation and self-control and discipline. A person who thinks material possessions are signs of success. A person who can't handle their drink. A person who's never known depravity or despair. A person who watches television (with a few exceptions -- Breaking Bad for instance).
What I’m doing with my life
Meandering around the globe, teaching and learning, trying to keep my head screwed on, writing when the lightning strikes, revising when the storm has cleared, searching for the Kerouacian 'It'.
I’m really good at
Causing cacophony, turning a quirky phrase, losing my mind and finding it the strangest places, keeping up a quick-witted, astutely-considered conversation on Camus and men's shampoo.
The first things people usually notice about me
The freckles around my eyes and my mangled traveler's accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite authors: Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac, James Joyce, Tom Robbins, Milan Kundera, Kurt Vonnegut, Ken Kesey, Hunter S. Thompson, Walt Whitman, WB Yeats, Allen Ginsberg, T.S. Eliot.

Movies: The Big Lebowski, Memento, Fight Club, Midnight in Paris, Amelie, Adaptation.

Shows: Breaking Bad, Californication, Bored to Death, No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain.

Food: Indian food. Mexican food. Anything gut-gnawing, soul-stripping spicy.
The six things I could never do without
My passport.
My journal.
Friendship and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ethnic psychologies. It's a mad world we live in but I've noticed every nation has its own particular landscape of neuroses. I like to think of myself as a modern day Gulliver, charting and mapping and climbing those alien mountains of madness.
On a typical Friday night I am
Causing trouble. Looking for the most blessed banter this holy planet has to offer. Coercing unwitting victims into rousing rounds of karaoke. Making deals with the devil.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's nothing I won't admit to.
You should message me if
You've got a sparkle of charm in ya.
