Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay. I think we can all agree that laughing is good, Central Park
is nice and The Met is a very big building with lots of pretty
things in it. Every profile I've read seems to include those
general concepts. And wine. People seem to like wine as well as
I love all of those things as well, so unless you're an
agoraphobic, Philistine, tee-totaling, mute, we're probably already
on the same page.
To add some more, I really love food and cooking and anything
related. I will happily debate the top five NY burgers or watch
them make cheese at Eatily or sit in bliss after a perfect soup
dumpling. I also cook and I get very excited when my protein
touches the pan and makes a perfect sizzle and I know my heat is
right. So if you've never fallen in love with something you
ate...well that's sort of sad.
Arts. Yes I like the arts. A lot. Movies, books and anything with a
story involved can get me going. I think that's the key factor, a
story of some sort. Even most paintings contain stories in my eyes.
But, I don't know, jazz for instance has zero story to it. I hate
jazz. And dance. Though if you love jazz or dance maybe you can
explain them to me. Oh and sitting through a musical tends to make
me wonder what freaking planet I've landed on. But other than that
I'm probably interested. But liking the arts to me doesn't mean
being artsy. It's a fine line. Lets just say that I'd list Die Hard
as one my favorite movies as well as Casablanca and The
As you can maybe tell from my opening, I'm a bit sarcastic. Though
as you can hopefully tell by my carefully selected picture with my
niece, I'm also a big sweetheart.
That sounded sort of stupid.
Look, if you've read this far you might as well just email me.
That's much easier.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write books. Fictional novels. "What are your books about?" seems
like a great question to ask me, I know. But it's surprisingly
difficult to answer. It's a very complex question for an author. If
I could sum it up quickly, well I wouldn't have had to write all
those books. :)
Recently I was given the opportunity to rebuild publishing a bit by
going the independent route. Some days this seems like the best
idea ever and I feel like I'm at the forefront of the industry.
Some days I wonder what on earth I'm doing. So, you know. Same old
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, riddles, bar activities, remembering quotes from books and
movies, being a nerd, smiling.

I'm guessing something in my head/face area? Is there anyone out

I mean. Unless you got a kicken bod or awesome ink or something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The Great Gatsby, just about anything on HBO, waaaaay too many
movies to list, any cooking show.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Six things I can't live without? Hmm. You know what? I'm just going
to Brer Rabbit the shit out of this.
1. Sinks with separate hot and cold taps
2. People who confuse having an ideology with having a
3. Boring kissers
6. Kevin Smith
Yes. I can not live without those things. Please do not take them
away. No. Stop. Ah. No.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what the hell I'm supposed to write here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out having cocktails or on my couch watching something off my DVR.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will rock the f$&! out to Taylor Swift and P!NK.

So today my apartment was painted and I wasn't allowed in it. I
work from home so I was basically in exile all day. I went to The
Met and The Frick, then went down to Corner Bistro for lunch, then
took the subway to Grand Street and wandered a bit before hitting
up Chinatown ice cream Factory. Then I walked with my banana and
mango ice cream past the various civil center buildings and debated
stopping off at The Patriot for a beer but opted to head back north
and wait out my time in the park. And now I want to have a drink
and people watch.
I figure my flight path on a random day when I'm forced to be away
from my desk is a good indicator.
If any of that strikes you, go ahead and write.
