My self-summary
Writer, dad, beard-grower. I live easy in the world and don't let too many things get to me. But I have known love, felt it swell in my chest and burn in my eyes.

What I'm looking for is hard to describe — I'll know it when I find it. Somebody who makes me laugh, makes me think, who's maybe a little mysterious. Most of all I want to be inspired.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to make a living with words, wit and ideas — I'm a writer, a journalist and a guy who stares out of windows a lot. Also, looking for a few sublime moments in every day - sipping a well-made cup of coffee, biting into an agreeable meal, relaxing with a glass of wine. I figure if you can find the joy in moments like that, you're gonna be alright (if you can't, there's always Netflix).
I’m really good at
Writing, editing
Opening things
The first things people usually notice about me
The funk band that follows me everywhere, playing my theme song.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Michael Chabon, Raymond Chandler, Scott Fitzgerald, Joseph Conrad
Neko Case, Radiohead, Wilco, Van Morrison, on and on.
Tacos, sushi, steak, anything
British TV, esp. mysteries
Six things I could never do without
Coffee, wow
Summer nights
Windows, to gaze out of
A really knock-out multivitamin
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What things mean; why they matter
On a typical Friday night I am
Fighting evil
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Never admit anything. Make them prove it.
You should message me if
You're smart and you like lively conversation, good food, laughing a lot. And maybe you believe that there is magic in the world - not the Disney kind, but the kind that happens when you kiss the right person, hear the right song at the right moment, or read a sentence that shows you what's been hiding in your heart.
The two of us
