My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an artist. I make paintings, often for fun and profit.

I'm polite - gentlemanly, you could say. I have a deep, abiding love for difficult art and uncomfortable music. I'll never shy away from an intense discussion. I love visiting museums (I get in free) and galleries almost as much as I enjoy relaxing over a drink and some good food. I revel in my vices.

Poly / open : if you and I want to get romantic we probably won't be getting monogamous.

Born and raised in Detroit, and moved to Brooklyn in 2006.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Painting and traveling for shows. Forgetting to eat lunch but remembering to quit before Ample Hills closes. I visit the Manets at the Met...often.

My cats were recently featured in a six part telenovela about the New York art world.

Taking French so I can paint in Tarnac and visit the D'Orsay. If you live in Paris, or want to travel with a stranger who barely speaks French, hit me up.

Retiring in Sicily.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Traveling lite. Cooking. (My eggplant parmesan is as good as my grandmother's). Making / drinking good coffee, making out, and arguing philosophy with non-professionals.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My shoes, beard, curls (if the air is dry). That serious guys tend to be better looking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Art: Manet and Renoir (late), Kai Althoff (always Kai Althoff), Ree Morton and Paul Thek. The Barnes!

Books (recent): Jakob Von Gunten, Decline and Fall, At Swim-Two-Birds, The Painting of Modern Life, Opening Up and the Ethical Slut - Most Recently: everything Jon Ronson. I'm a subscriber to the Times Literary Supplement, which means I'm superficially conversant in a wide array of esoteric academic topics. That sounds douchy and boring but you'll just have to trust me that it's cute.

Movies (recent): Under the Skin, Breaking the Waves, Only Lovers Left Alive

Tv: The Thick of it, SUBURGATORY! (No shame!) I recently blew through Don't Trust the B... while working on a triptych of Amish decorative wishing wells in the studio. #slanderbeeking (noFUCKINGshame)

Music: I used to be in bands (indie / mathrock) (Lately): Chance the Rapper & James Blake, Le1f, Autre Ne Veut, and RL Grime. Converge and Braid for all time.

Food: Sushi and Burgers +
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Being the only guy in my pilates class.
painting, (creative)sex, the books I'll probably not get to, Tony, wondering where he could be, who he is with, what is he thinking, is he thinking of me, and whether he'll ever return someday.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Studio > openings > after party > smaller bar with friends
> ??? > home
I'm very social and active in the art world. If I'm going out, I'm usually with art-friends, going to galleries, looking for somewhere to drink and talk shop, somewhere to dance, maybe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm married and separated. We've been best friends since forever. We aren't a couple anymore, we don't live together, and are both pretty cool with it. Cool? Cool.

A celebrity couple you would know were given a painting of mine as a wedding gift (not by me).

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
My professional world is fascinating, but small, so message me if you want to:
*tell me about your play / research / dissertation or want to show me what you're building / listening to / seeing / putting together / taking apart.
*go to the Frick
*dance like you don't give a fuck.
*grab a coffee, or a cocktail, or both, though preferably not at the same time.
*make out in public, or secretly (at the Frick).
*pilgrimage to Andy Kaufman's grave.

or, you're Jane Levy (a boy can dream)

Now what you wanna do?
And who you wanna do it with?
Me? That’s cute. okay!
