Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in NYC, I was raised and educated in the likeable enough state
of Maryland. Then I did some traipsing around the country looking
in here, settling there until finally I made a return trip to San
Francisco where I've no been for awhile. I work for a living, play
guitar and compose songs for fun, and writing is my somewhat
difficult vocation. I almost always have a book in my hand* but I'm
more than glad to put it down for some conversation. My moods are
effected by the seasons and now that it is spring I feel buoyant,
rather more life is for living than in the dark season just past. I
think I will take up jogging on April the first. That is not a joke
or a "fool." One of these days I'm going to buy a boat. I'd like to
believe there is a love of my life. I am not afraid of

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading obsessively, drinking socially, songsmithing, writing
creatively and trying to make more money (roughly in that order).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Looking like just maybe I have something profound to say. Also,
occasional profundity. Also, bringing women chocolate. Maybe a few
other things. Definitely not exercises of this sort.

by Roberto Bolano
fine book, my favorite in years. I also enjoy the works of
Barker David Foster Wallace
, Thomas Pynchon
. So I guess I
like long books. b)By sheer times viewed I'm afraid Raiders of the
Lost Ark would be my favorite film, however the work of Godard,
, Un Bout de Souffle
score high as well. Also the Jerk is hilarious. c) I like music in
many of it's myriad forms particularly teenage filmstars
look, if it was on Creation Records
like it; Bowie
, Duran Duran
, Broken Social Scene
especially and my own band Hot Farm
. d) I have heard good things
about food, supposedly it goes well with wine
, of which I am fond of particularly
the Italian Piedmont varieties.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never? That's a long time and quite emphatic. But, uh, that most
dreaded of all emotions- hope (love), music, shelter, cross-word
, Italian wine
and er, shamefully
. Grown pandas are fine too, I guess. Maybe I should put
something about the love of a good woman (by whatever definition of
that we may agree to) in here?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately it's been character v. psychology both in literature and in
life. Then how I should get out more, followed by song structure
(thirds and fifths and whatnot, though music theory can make my
eyes glazeover). A morning companion.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably, playing guitar while drinking a tad too much wine if you
want honesty or whatever. It's vaguely possible I might be at the
which I enjoy.
Fantasy scenarios include [fill in the blank].
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have this fantasy: I meet a lovely woman. A certain of number of
dates follow. On the one in question we share a good bottle of wine
and conversation. We find ourselves at your place and topping the
pile of your to be read pile of books is the Pale King, a book I
have mixed feelings about. I pick it up and you notice and then we
find ourselves in a most intimate conversation, and then...
