My self-summary
I'm an actor and writer who moved to DC 2 years ago spring to teach Drama. Now I have 70 middle school students who occupy my life. They say I've got the personality for it: patient, silly, stubborn and comfortable breaking up irrational scuffles.

I'm also the foodie/wine-lover/"Actually, I'll have an Old-fanshioned, Few rye, extra bitters, no fruit, with a twist" kind of guy.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to grow in all aspects. I'm becoming a better, more responsive teacher; my writing doesn't suck anymore; my social life is beginning to take root; and I think I'm even happy with who my neighbors are.

I moved to DC from California in order to teach in a setting that needed good teachers. Now I'm here and my co-workers say I need to make sure I get some "me" time, or I'll go nuts.
I’m really good at
Coming up with ideas. Like tons of great ideas. Even if nobody uses them, they're out there. For free. I've also got this knack for finding adventures.
And I cook well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: A Sense of an Ending was brilliant. Catch-22, Speaker for the Dead. Also anything by Steinbeck, Tobias Wolfe, Adam Levin, Gaiman, and Neil Stevenson. I'm dabbling in David Foster Wallace. I feel like there are a hundred more books, all sorts of contemporary fiction. I devour literature, and in the summers I can read a book a day. Oh! and My Name is Asher Lev.

I love modernist poetry. ee cummings is a god.

Movie: Have you seen "In Bruges" I don't mean to be all movier-than-thou, but it's fantastic. Go see it. And "Lucky Number Sleven"

Also.... Daniel Craig is the best Bond. I said it; I mean it.

Netflix (who watches TV anymore): Mad men and House of cards are just amazing. I am dying to see the third season on Sherlock, and i love Black's Books. and "Yeah, Mr. White. Yeah, Science!"

Music: Counting Crows, Daft punk, Metric, Chanticleer, Zeppelin, Dave Brubeck, The xx, Modest Mouse, Mumford and Sons, and Outkast. I'm all over the place.

And sharing good food and good alcohol. I'm considering starting to home-brew.
The six things I could never do without
1) My writing notebook and my pen. I take them everywhere.

2) My pipe. It's a vice, I get it, but it's classy. And goes well with scotch.

3) Meeting strangers. I love meeting new people, and there are so many of them in the world!

4) This American Life. (I briefly met Ira Glass; if that's not exciting to you...)

5) Good food. The kind of food that makes you go, "yeah, I'm pretty sure this is the reason we exist."

6) The ability to remain calm in the midst of chaos.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about whether Free Will exists (because it doesn't, although I'd love a conversation over a glass of malbec that explores the position) and what the implications are.

Also I analyze everything.

Also about how to tell stories.
And that I should be more obsessed with grammar than I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
...just realizing that there is no school tomorrow! is it too late to make plans?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I cook, I'll narrate the whole time like I'm a chef on the food network. I do this even when I'm alone.

also I sing when I'm nervous. in Italian.
