My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a writer who also turns the words of others into sentences, paragraphs and entire stories. Inexplicably, people also pay me for my opinions on music. Basically, just a storyteller--with a rebel heart.

Oh yeah, I break a lot of drumsticks. I've been stepping on fragments for more than 20 years. I really should vacuum more.

Also, I always color outside the lines.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m usually in the eye of a tornado of poetry anthologies and obscure Russian novels, while I dodge flying LPs by forgotten artists that hipsters pretend to remember.

Doing my best to live with an open heart. It's going pretty well so far.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Listening.

- Making Devil’s Food Espresso cupcakes from scratch. That includes the frosting.

- Being there for others when things fall apart.

- Changing commas to semicolons--like a boss.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I’m a troublemaker. I get a lot of stern warnings.

Also, my eyelashes--at least that's what girls tell me.

Ask me about it; I love to talk about music.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The truth is, it's my family and friends; however, here are six more below. See what I did there? It's like wishing for more wishes ...

1. Compassion.

2. The sound of an LP skipping and falling back into a groove on a turntable that’s too old to find parts for.

3. New York City. In some ways, it will always be home.

4. My niece laughing. The Earth stops spinning.

5. My fingers typing on a keyboard or a pen in my hand.

6. Perspective
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Why do people insist on creamy peanut butter when crunchy is so much better?

- What are the people like who wrote notes in the margins of used books that I find?

- Am I giving enough?

- Robots. And robot riots. We won't win, so be careful.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
One Friday night I ended up in a high-speed motorcycle chase with members of Parliament Funkadelic in downtown Phoenix. There were ninjas involved. They're so tricky.

I love Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I might be afraid of monkeys. I don't trust them; you shouldn't either.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You’re smart but don’t feel the need to constantly remind everyone, kind even when no one is looking, funny enough to trigger those deep down laughs that people remember for years, just the right amount of weird, and wake up each day genuinely thinking that anything is possible.

Or, if you sometimes wish life could be more like a Wes Anderson movie.
