My self-summary
I've spent the last nine years traveling. This is not always as interesting as it sounds and often involves doing a bunch of otherwise inane jobs like looking after aging aristocrats in the English countryside or producing Amish reality TV in New York. It also can mean partaking in morally questionable activities like dancing at the election parties of infamous Middle Eastern dictators. I could describe myself as an aspiring writer but that really means I spend far more time aspiring than actually writing.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently producing an independent film and working a day job which is completely at odds with that ambition.
I’m really good at
Quoting Woody Allen movies, getting my passport stolen, charming Saudi Arabians and using my uptight Catholic background as a way to get unwitting Amish individuals to trust me....
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, I guess. It IS my natural colour.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Orhan Pamuk, Kurt Vonnegut, Zadie Smith, Salman Rushdie, Murakami, Hanif Kureishi, Kafka, Camus. I wish I had written anything by Milan Kundera. My fave films are Withnail and I, the Princess Bride and a little known Norwegian gem called Get Ready to be Boyzvoiced (check out these bad boys - www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyJ4RRCI7tE). I almost got kicked out of film school for not liking Tarantino. I hardly ever watch TV, especially not reality TV, even if it has dubious-looking Amish people in it. My musical taste is accumulated from around the world and makes absolutely no sense when put on a list together. In my parallel life, I run a jazz bar. I can't stand pretentiousness about music so if anyone asks, I usually tell them I'm really into silence.
The six things I could never do without
Woody Allen movies, my friend gin, a good book, my peeps, my passport, $3.50 for bus fare
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Death and Money----yep.
On a typical Friday night I am
There are no Friday nights. Days of the week are a deception constructed by people with office jobs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can sing along to the entire soundtrack of Fiddler on the Roof, stemming from an inexplicable childhood yearning to be a Russian Jew.
You should message me if
I don't know but if you do, please write more than Hi or How are you. I don't respond to that ever.
