— Edward Norton, “Fight Club”
(I've been using that line in introductions since before Fight Club was a thing. Each time truer than the last. That's not a complaint, btw.)
— Rolling Stone, damning me with faint praise
The messages in my regular inboxen that still need replying to go into the thousands, even if you prune away the spam. As such, I am *very bad* at answering e-mail (or OKC mail), but still love to receive it. If you'd like to write to me, here are some tips:
Be funny! \(ツ)/¯
Be confident! \o/
Justify your existence.
As for *how* to wrote me elsewhere ... it's not hard to figure out given all the social network links I've provided below.
I'm also often in the field or in work settings which preclude easy Internet access. Please don't take it personally if replies are slow. For security reasons, I no longer carry a cell phone.
I don't talk about myself a lot, and tend to give vague answers when pressed. Please don't take it personally (sensing a trend?) - if & when I do explain, you'll understand why this is.
Besides, the things we have to say about ourselves often just projections of who we want to be, filled in on some mass-produced Scantron (or Internet quiz) with all the bubbles of possible answers. Each preconception withers the sense of wonder.
