My self-summary
Born abroad and far away, moved here later, found a career in a dying industry, went solo and working it out daily. Frequent flyer with itchy feet (not literally. That would be nasty). Going grey with gusto.
What I’m doing with my life
Creative director, filmmaker and radio correspondant. Voyages are part of the equation, fulfilling the fantasy of existing elsewhere while still remaining connected to our fair city. Days off spent ambling, evenings carousing. Wish flâneur was a career description.
I’m really good at
Creating follies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm foreign, often mistaken for haughty.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Have enjoyed Pessoa in the past. Discovered Mavis Gallant —fell in love. Did actually like that perennial profile favourite, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. Calvino's great, Waugh makes me chortle. Recently enjoyed The Flamethrowers immensely. Currently dipping into Ben Lerner's latest.

Aki Kaurismaki films are a favorite. Tend towards international and independent areas of film, but when pressed, a good blockbuster works wonders. Recently caught Inherent Vice and was absolutely bowled over.

TV's rather obvious—comedies á la 30 Rock, Thick of It, Curb Your Enthusiasm etc.; drama in the vein of The Wire; and the occasional guilty pleasure of watching Bourdain yuck it up around the globe. One of those people who doesn't have a television.

Music wise, Pulp is up there next to Pavement. Often dip backwards into Bowie, Iggy; Occasionally indulge in synth cheese. Working on more contemporary tastes. Struggling

When it comes to food, thoroughly omnivorous. Comes with the job...
The six things I could never do without
Sympathetic collaborators
A bicycle in the fairer months
A notebook brimming with to-dos
A stash of wine for the apocalypse
A source of entertainment
Multiple museum memberships
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Impossible ideas and how to implement them. Whether a few months in Mexico City might be just what the doctor ordered. (Update: Did it—it was!) If "has a cat" is a pro or a con. If skipping a run really matters.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That LA might be where it's at.
You should message me if
You care about football (the helmet and oblong ball kind) as much as I do. Which is to say, not at all.
