My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Westchester native who moved back east from Los Angeles five years ago. LA was a great place to live and all, but it lacked a certain je ne sais quois. ...Wait. No. I fully sais quois: proper whitefish salad. And seasons. Which means I can be summarized by the fact that I gave up beachside-always-70s-and-sunny for polar vortices and a concoction of smoked fish and mayo.

Also: I've worked the salmon runs in Alaska, studied Indian music in Mumbai, ski-bummed in Tahoe, and driven cross-country more than is reasonable for any non-trucker non-professional musician non-drug runner. I've plied a few trades and lived in a few places, and I'm using all that perspective to focus on what's important and chase down some long term goals.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Running my own law practice, which is never dull. Building furniture, biking finally good god that winter was murder, cooking healthy and/or not so healthy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Name that tune. Mushroom risotto. Covering Jose Gonzalez covering the Knife. My fricking job.

East of Eden is my end-all be-all of novels. It's the answer to people who say you don't learn enough from fiction. I consider it no small travesty that Elia Kazan's movie version left out Lee, who was, in my humble, the most important figure in the book. Sure, Samuel's got the Irish wisdom and the twinkly eyes and Steinbeck's grandfather. But Lee is the foil for Samuel and every other major character, is full of mystery AND certainty, and is the perfect fulcrum for a sweeping treatise on human relationships. I mean, I guess the movie was in part just a James Dean vehicle, mid-century Hollywood and all that, so it's -- Oh. Sorry. Right. I'm novel-deprived now, after failing at the Power Broker and getting fed up with Shantaram. I try to compensate with the NYer. Update: I can't believe it's taken me this long to get around to reading Middlesex. The Magus turned my world inside out. David Foster Wallace is my prose idol.

I've been accused of being a stunt eater. I think my accuser didn't like tomatoes or some nonsense.

This tune was on repeat for a while recently: Homenaje a Justino. Also getting lots of airplay: Eastern Standard Time on WKCR, Eliza Richardson on KCRW, Bombino, Stevie Wonder. I saw Willie Nelson recently. As I write, this string quartet cover of Cult of Personality that's playing on WNYC really isn't doing it for me, but I admire their spirit.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Outdoorsy stuff
Reading material
Listening material
A well oiled kitchen
Some tools and a project
My car. Can't deny it. Largely due to #1.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Recapturing innocence. Smiling dogs vs. anthropomorphization. Upstate escapes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hurtling through space with the rest of you, but in a fast-cut, Guy Ritchie kind of way.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like the Arcade Fire all that much. It's partially Win Butler's voice, which I find melodramatic. Plus, Canadians are a dangerous bunch.
