My self-summary
I don't have a list you need to live up to. I'm somewhere on the ambitious/dilettante spectrum.
What I’m doing with my life
Broke my leg, figuring out how to walk again. It's afforded me some time recently.
I fix the things people write. I try to make things happen. Looking for more touring opportunities. I hear you knocking.

I am a wicked dancer and record curator; and cocktail mixer...I am too clever by half, but also exceedingly loyal to the people I am fond of.
I miss playing in bands. I've dusted off my rhodes and (child-sized) accordion lately.
I’m really good at
Wine and food pairings. Fixing scripts. Soothing jangled nerves and/or personalities. Cat wrangling. Record-finding. Thrift shopping.
Teaching. I have taught:
--as an adjunct professor
--a whole room of kids to play "Louie Louie" on the ukulele
--an entire bar to do the Hustle semi-spontaneously.

I might be good to date: I'm busy, I've got a lot on the go, but I'm still attentive; I'm always at the ready with jokes or cooking or records; I like to fool around all the time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have big curly hair and big eyes. I am unrecognizable, apparently, when those are covered. Freckles, maybe, after that?
Riding a bike that's as old as me, or walking briskly. (Temporarily less brisk, see broken leg).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am a very good cook. My fridge tends to have a "condiments of the world" aspect.

TV: Transparent, Fargo, The Knick. Things that you watch on your computer. Party Down, forever.

Music: (right now) I have too many records.

Also in music: Spaceman 3, old-school soul and funk 45s, the kinks, Fresh and Onlys...Alton Ellis or Toots and the Maytalls for the sound of pure happiness.
Play me something new, too.
I'm probably listening to krautrock or a podcast (radiolab, memory palace) if you see me on the street with headphones.

Books: Recently: Weird memoirs. Heidi Julavitz, John Jeremiah Sullivan, Patti Smith, Jennifer Egan, Etgar Keret, Andrew Solomon, Michael Chabon, always Nabokov, Marquez
The six things I could never do without
A song I want to live in,
food that surprises,
my terribly clever cat,
good conversation,
the colour orange.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Taking this show on the road.
Contagious songs.
Hilarious hosiery.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working on one thing or another.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My most successful Halloween costume was probably Animal from the Muppets. We can discuss how one defines success (in this or other contexts) but, I will stand by that answer.
You should message me if
You're the foxy, intriguing stranger I smiled at while walking/in transit/etc. but you were too shy to strike up a conversation.
I'm partial to cooks, jokers, loveable mop-tops, teachers (and people who can teach me something/anything from bass lines to languages); people who appreciate good value and nice wine.

You like a little banter. I don't want to email around forever, but a little effort beyond "Hey winky face," goes far.
