My self-summary
i can most often be found haunting construction sites for building materials, picking up weird things from the side of the road and repeatedly searching craigslist under "industrial" and "vintage". i am a collector of many strange things.

i am good at finding things for people. i have found jobs, apartments, studio spaces, friends and significant others for various people in my life. i like to be the connector between people. i value intuition, empathy and feeling.

socially, i fall somewhere in the middle. i love to be out and about but really need time at home to recharge. my domestic life - caring for my home, my yard and my dogs - is really important to me.

i'm better at being in a partnership than alone. not that i mind being alone, but i like working with / living with someone else more. i'm looking for someone who i can embrace in a holistic, creative way - not only a partner, but a collaborator in work and in life.

i've been told by more than one person that i am an excellent kisser.
What I’m doing with my life
working artist. i've been lucky enough to have transcended the barista threshold into actually making my entire income from my work and/or teaching. i manage the ceramics and sculpture studios at a local art center, and am currently doing the itinerant teacher thing at various institutions in the area.

i have never successfully held a traditional 9 to 5 job, and i'm quite okay with that.
I’m really good at
close observation. reading body language. drawing. finding the right word. remembering phone numbers. converting fahrenheit to celsius and back again. applying eyeshadow. being cozy. not using capital letters. making your mom jokes.

actually, i'm pretty bad at making your mom jokes. but the rest are generally true.
The first things people usually notice about me
my hair. it changes color a lot. i find this useful, people tend to remember me. also my white glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
roots / bluegrass / old timey music (Gillian Welch, Bonnie Prince Billy, American Routes on NPR).

baritones (Peter Steele, Stephin Merritt, Daughn Gibson).

female singer songwriters (Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, Ani DiFranco).

country music. god, i love country music. i'm going to make a pilgrimage to the Opry someday (i should note that i exclude the intensely heteronormative bullshit pop country from this category).

the Smiths Pandora station has never let me down, except for that one time it tried to play Nickelback.

movies: top three: Metropolis, The Double Life of Veronique and Ghost Dog. in love with Kieslowski, Jarmusch and Altman. big on atmosphere and little or no plot.

my favorite book is To Kill A Mockingbird. which is an English major answer, i know. i also have a foolish abiding adolescent love for John Irving. sad dystopian novels are my kyptonite.

i don't watch TV. i do, however, watch TV on the internet.
The six things I could never do without
a home.
a studio.
my family and friends.
Calvin and Pearl, my greyhounds.
rooster sauce.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
i bought a house in November 2013, so a huge amount of bandwidth (as well as money) is taken up by that.

income inequality, and how to reconcile that when i go from West Philly (where i live) to the Main Line (where i work).

education policy and how to best support public schools.

what i'm going to write next.

how i should probably go to the gym today.
On a typical Friday night I am
my goal is to build all the furniture in my house. a lot of Fridays taken up by that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
when i see the symbol for pounds ("lbs") i always mentally say "libs". i have said it out loud a few times. it's kind of embarrassing.

i have tons of grey hair and cannot bring myself to care about it.

i'm obsessed with advice columns.

this isn't private, but it is a fun piece of trivia: my great aunt Tessie was Tallulah Bankhead's personal assistant. that means i can six degrees myself to pretty much everyone in classic Hollywood.

You should message me if
you're a feminist.

you're a cute mildly neurotic Jewish boy with the sexy triumvirate of beard, glasses and shaved head (don't know why, that's what does it for me). red hair bonus points.

you've got your shit figured out in the "what i'm doing with my life" department. passion. dedication.

you know how to make stuff. welding a major plus (I want to learn).

you're a cyborg.
