Im definitely a free spirit and like to kind of take things as they come, hence picking up and moving to Puerto Rico from Boston last year. I spent this last summer traveling through Seattle, Portland, Napa, San Francisco and then chillen in LA and doing some pop-ups before settling in to Denver. I have a great gig here and some awesome friends, so I plan on sticking around for a while and trading in my nomadic ways for a stable home…at least for a while
Authors: I love Junot Diaz's authenticity, Garcia Marquez's/Allende's ability to weave together fantasy and reality, Sedaris' wit, Borges for blowing my mind on the regular, Dickens' storytelling, Franzen's skill in making the ordinary extraordinary, the way Pahalinuk challenges and fucks with you, George Saunder's/Vonnegut's absurdist humor, Hemingway's honesty, and the crazy world that Thompson lives in. The Night Circus also has some the most beautiful imagery of anything I've read in a while.
TV: SNL, Battlestar Galactica, The Wire, Top Chef, Workaholics, Nova, any and all Law & Orders, The Simpsons, Family Guy, The West Wing and The Walking Dead, but I hate commercials so I mostly watch on the inter webs.
Movies: Total cinephile, so pretty much everything. Favorites are Miyazaki, Richard Linklater, Pixar, the Coen Brothers, Judd Apatow, Kevin Smith, Gus van Sant, Tarantino, Guy Ritchie and about half of Woody Allen. I'm a total sucker for well done (and even not so well done) scifi, fantasy and thrillers. I've also seen the Blues Brothers about a million times and it never gets old.
Food: If you can safely eat it, I'm down, but I particularly love southeast Asian, Japanese, soul food, oysters, and a big ol' platter with some cured meats. Throw in a good beer or a solid cocktail.....(drooling)
2) My knife kit
3) My peeps!
5) My crazy family
6) The independence to go where the universe pushes me
Working as much as I do its hard to maintain serious relationships and Im open to something more casual, but would ultimately like to find something more long term.
Einstein said that there are only two kinds of people: those who don't believe in miracles and those for whom everything is a miracle. If you fall into the second group, we're going to get along great.
Added bonus if you're in the industry or are *super* into food/cocktails/beer
