My self-summary
I used to live in post-colonial Williamsburg, but I've been bouncing from city to city as an itinerant postdoc for the past couple of years: Paris, Berlin, Berkeley, Jerusalem, and now Munich. In september I'm moving back to my old love, Chicago.

I teach the history of religions and write about the ancient world. I also intermittently practice yoga, go bouldering, attend the opera, and drink whiskey on the couch. I'm a big fan of Alice Water's "The Art of Simple Food"---it's like Rousseau's "Second Discourse," but with recipes---and of the idea of going WOOFF-ing. I've had better experiences renting other people's flats on airbnb than renting out my own.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm corrupting the young and not believing in the gods of the city.
I’m really good at
Hosting dinner parties. Finding used bookstores. Acclimating to new cities.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm more interested in what people didn't expect to find out about me once they get to know me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors I care enough about to teach: Herodotus, Plato, Maimonides, Spinoza, Nietzsche... And then, as a historian of ancient religion, I also spend lots of time thinking about what a friend once called "Sumerian tax returns" (aka ancient Near Eastern cuneiform texts).

Some stuff I've been reading on the subway recently includes Marilynne Robinson's "Gilead" (the best book I've ever read about Protestant ministers in Iowa), Edmund Wilson's "To the Finland Station," Virginia Woolf's "A Room of One's Own," Amos Oz's "A Tale of Love and Darkness," and The Ramayana. I re-read The Great Gatsby every time I am called for jury duty.

Movies I consider really good include The Thin Man, The Searchers, The Big Sleep, and some others that don't begin with "The" (e.g., Der letzte Mann, Le Mépris, and La Notte). Movies I grew up on include The Great Muppet Caper (age 4), Blazing Saddles (daily from age 6 to 10), Manhattan (age 16 to 19), Amadeus and Metropolitan (19-21).

It's become a cliché to say that you don't own a television, and in my case certainly a disingenuous one, as I find myself watching a shitload of TV off of my laptop: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Sherlock, Top Chef, Breaking Bad, The West Wing...

Music: Bach, Rameau, Mozart/Da Ponte operas, Satie, Thelonious Monk, Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins, Jacques Brel, Chava Alberstein, Enrico Macias, Velvet Underground, Guns n Roses, Belle & Sebastian, Jolie Holland, Daniel Kahn, Baby Soda.
The six things I could never do without
Bookstores; conversations at Jimmy's; Mimi's pizza; The Stork Club Bar Book; old movies; argyle socks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to live a flourishing human life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i watched Eurovision for the first time this year, and I enjoyed it.

You should message me if
You don't mind that I am severely ignorant of most pop culture post-1992.
