My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Call me a work in progress, or a bundle of contradictions in search of resolution. A small-town boy drawn to the pulsing dynamism of the city. A cosmopolitan intellectual torn between highbrow pretensions and lowbrow cravings. A Mac devotee befuddled by my smartphone. An Obama centrist with libertarian tendencies and contrarian impulses. A globe-hopscotching traveler entranced by my tiny neighborhood. A churchgoing Episcopalian with a streak of skepticism. Intensely serious, with a side of playful irony and ironic wordplay. Confused? Me too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm hitting the pause/reset button after 20 years as an editor/writer/blogger for a national entertainment magazine and website. In my former life, I filled my downtime with serendipitous rambles in the city--or historical/pop-cult excursions into the American heartland. Now I'm trying to be more active in my church and give back to my community as I happily venture forth in the land of self-employment.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being an English grammarian from hell (but I try not to be a scold about it). Writing allows people to turn the tables on me and give me a taste of my own medicine, so to speak. Outside of work, my most notable talent is whipping up cakes, pies, and my grandmother's holiday fudge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Truthfully, I have no clue, but let me guess: my prosthetic arm? My physical clumsiness (grace)? My conversational pauses and fumbles? My biting sense of humor? I hesitate to ask.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food; clean water; oxygen; warm clothing; my prosthetic limbs; my computer. Am I being excessively literal-minded here?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Global warming and the national deficits (seriously). The cost of caring for elderly relatives and educating my beautiful, brilliant nephews and niece. The existential terror of growing older and losing cherished friends and kinfolk. Do I sound like too much of a Debbie Downer?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. Then, unwinding with a stiff helping of broccoli TV (Bill Maher is a mainstay). Yes, I need to get out more often. Just don't ask me to brave the partying weekend throngs; weeknights are better for going out and socializing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been a Doctor Who fan for nearly a quarter of a century. Other than that TMI tidbit, I'll reserve my deep dark secrets for an in-person tete-a-tete.
