My self-summary
Franco-American wandering around Paris for the past 2 years. Plus américain que français, j'avoue. I went to college in the US and moved to France after teaching English in Korea for a year.
What I’m doing with my life
The other day I was ricocheting slowly off the blue walls of this room. Although now it's mostly ricocheting from cinema to cinema.

A good movie theater might the only thing for which I'm willing to cross the Seine!

My previous job afforded me ample free time to read poetry and rage at The Economist's paywall, so there was that...
I’m really good at
Absent-mindedness. Chess. More the former than the latter, frankly.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Latin American origins. Just kidding. Half-Salvadoran, yet lily-white am I.

My previous boss told me that I have "la flemme des anglais." Apparently I didn't have the temperament to work at a financial firm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm highly skeptical of the utility of dumping a list of favorites upon you, but here goes.

Poetry: Larkin, because he sees what's really always there. Roethke, for the inexorable sadness of pencils. Auden and his accessibility. Hardy for his influence on Larkin. Rilke's ability to somehow transcend it all. Yevtushenko's empathy and joie de vivre. K Koch, for being pretty damn funny.

Movies: Where to begin? The French New Wave, specifically Rohmer's moral tales. The Merchant Ivory films. Recent Almodovar movies. Losey because of the incomparable seductiveness of The Servant and Accident. Mankiewicz, if only because of Sleuth.

Food: Is there any reason to go beyond the quintessentially French steak frites? I'm a bit of a rube. I'll never tire of Chez Gladines, that's for sure.
The six things I could never do without
I don't know anyone who could get through the day without two or three juicy rationalizations.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is this where I try to sound effortlessly cosmopolitan and yet, à la fois, poignantly self-aware?

No, really, it comes in waves. There was a time when I ate, slept, and drank cinema (I recall a week in Busan, holed up in my apartment, watching 3, 4, 5 movies a day). Then, much later, there was a period of gobbling down TV shows.

Nowadays it's modernist poetry. But hey, poetry makes nothing happen.
On a typical Friday night I am
Engaged in an ill-fated attempt to feed myself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Betraying my roots, I don't have a typical New Mexican accent.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–31
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You want to watch a movie at Le Champo, la filmothèque, or Le Louxor.
You'd like to discuss a Philip Larkin poem. Or other poetry.
You want to (try to?) get last-minute tickets to the Opera with me.
