Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born here, but grew up there. And now I'm back.
A British designer who I follow once said to live your life so
that, in retrospect, it makes for a great story. I think that's
I'm restless. Martha Graham: "There is no satisfaction whatever at
any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed
unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Building the future; pulling it out of the oven before it's fully
I was always interested in storytelling and technology. I started
out doing the starving artist thing, and people found it useful
that I knew how to use technology to help with that. But then I got
bored, and decided to flip the priorities, and that's been working
out really well for me.
I started and sold a company, and I've spent awhile now trying to
figure out what the next chapter is. There's a big idea on the
horizon, but the timing is a bit out of my hands. So, trying to
figure it out until that happens or does not happen.
I play games, watch horror movies, and workout at a ridiculous
I may soon be splitting my time between New York and LA, and I
would be very happy about that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm ridiculously confident in my ability to learn new things.
Probably too confident!
I'll sometimes take work with just a vague sense of how to get it
done, and then work my butt off to get up to speed on something
obscure so that I can get it done. It's stressful, but at least I
I'm also really good at bridging the creative/capitalist divide. I
would love to argue with you about this.
The first things people usually notice about me

I have little hair, a blond beard, and a big smile. I'm guessing
one of those, but who knows?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm so moody about choosing favorites, though I understand why this
I like genre things and strong aesthetics. So, fantasy, sci-fi, and
horror, period drama, and stories constructed with similar tropes.
That goes for movies, TV, books, and games.
I'm terrible at music, it's a part of culture that I always feel
behind on. Ask me about it, and give me something to listen to.
I'll give you some podcasts in return.
I love television, because TV is awesome right now, and I really
enjoy complex, long-form storytelling.
My books line up with my TV and movies, tho they also include some
nonfiction, mostly about NYC history and urbanism these days.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Technology, media, storytelling, how they intersect and how they're
changing. How the 21st century seems like it will unwind a lot of
the 20th century, and what happens then. The aesthetics of everyday
Accouterments of masculinity. Monogamy and non-monogamy. Gay stuff
and queer stuff and what the hell I want out of life.
Oh and cat pics. That's like 15% of every day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The same thing we do every night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I fucking hate yoga. Not yoga itself — it's a little boring but
whatever — but the *culture of yoga* that is particular to middle
class white people. Which means I can't take a yoga class in New
York. So I swing heavy iron with fucking unicorns and I like it.
