Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Freelance illustrator living in Brooklyn, originally from Vermont.
I feel like every time I take a Myers-Briggs I get a slightly
different outcome, but lets just go with ISTJ.
My life is probably a bit more unconventional than most since I
haven't followed a strict career path per se. I just value having
flexibility with my time over any sort of daily grind, although I'm
motivated and work hard at what I do.
I genuinely enjoy meeting new people and getting to know them
one-on-one, especially people with backgrounds, careers, and
interests that might be very different from my own. I just find it
interesting to see the ways in which your life and perspective can
be influenced by the random people you meet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Illustrating, mostly, and occasionally finding work as a designer.
I also have a little business selling my own flasks, prints, &
greeting cards. When I'm not working on the art stuff, I'm tutoring
in writing or holed up in the basement office of an
And when I'm not doing any of the above, I'm going on long epic
walks around the city, seeing standup comedy/live music/art
exhibits, cooking or going out for awesome food, drawing in bars or
cafes, rendezvousing with friends, and enjoying the random
adventures that NYC can pretty consistently deliver.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding money & metro cards on the streets, remembering obscure
pop culture facts about fictional characters, having a flask full
of bourbon on me at crucial moments, remembering to water my
plants, cooking home fries from scratch, drawing Aeon Flux on bar
napkins, throwing & catching a baseball, applying instagram
filters, writing & editing, dancing, playing pool, playing

I read the New Yorker almost daily. Books, not as much as I used
to. But when I do I lean towards non-fiction.
When I was a kid, my best friend and I used to watch Beetlejuice at
least once a week, if not more. Then I went through a phase my
freshmen year of college where I fell asleep to Fear & Loathing
in Las Vegas nearly every night. So maybe that says something about
what I lean towards in the film department.
Really into travel/food documentary stuff at the moment. Anthony
Bourdain can be kind of an ass, but damn if he doesn't make me want
to go to Southeast Asia.
I'm excited for the X-Files reboot, but I'm more excited for the
new Evil Dead series.
My last three music downloads were The Cure, Blockhead, and Bjork.
I have a bunch of go-to artists I like and sometimes struggle to
find new stuff. That's why I'm always looking for people that are
much musically hipper than me to hang out with and advice me on
what to listen to.
I also have the start of a decent record collection. The last three
records I bought were the B-52s, Frank Zappa, and Sigur Ros.
Also, Nerdist podcast. That's a go-to for when I'm working.
Radiolab is also good.
Food: Anything that is delicious and reasonably priced. But really
anything. But especially sushi.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Metro card, close friendships, sketchbook, my flask, humor,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hmm...I don't really differentiate my time between weeknights and
weekends, except for when it comes to hanging out with my friends
with day jobs. One of the perks of making my own hours!
