I wish I was more of an early morning person. I'm a director and more often than not work with talent that surpasses the definition of diva: food. More of a great dinner + moody bar kind of guy, rather than a club dude. I'm kind of a home body, but feel most alive when I'm traveling. Split, Croatia is next on my list. LA-DC-SF-LA.
What I’m doing with my life
Amassing a collection of hamburger photos, planning train trips,
taking train trips, anxiously awaiting for us to find some sort of
life on other planets (Ceres FTW), finding prickly pears on hikes
and trying to take them without gloves, figuring out how to make
iphone apps - like one that when you open it just drains your
battery to zero, trying to decide whether the sunset itself or the
opposite side of sunset is more interesting, reviving the peace
sign as a way to combat road rage (spoiler - it just makes it
worse), wishing that more words were palindromes, waiting for PTA's
next film, imagining myself getting a rabbit and naming her Bonnie
I’m really good at
using two letter words in Scrabble
making mint juleps
jumping off docks on lakes
affixing images xacto'ed from old encyclopedias onto wood
thinking ... sort of .. you know .. fast.
The first things people usually notice about me
my chakras. no wait – yeah, my chakras.

The six things I could never do without
the em dash
forest green forests
I spend a lot of time thinking about
our star, other stars
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open e-book
You should message me if
Im really just looking for my Abbi Jacobson ...
Though alternatively, hit me up if:
-you play an instrument
-you talk to dogs or don't mind guys that do
-you're ok being both big and little spoon
-you're eager to find ways to help the planet
