My self-summary
I drink double bergamot Earl Grey and rye Manhattans. I'll watch football Saturday through Monday, then a Broadway musical Tuesday. I listen to Ella Fitzgerald and Nirvana. I read Pulitzer Prize-winners and romance novels. I can spend a Saturday ambling through the Whitney and/or bar crawling through Village dive bars. I like 1940s Tracy-Hepburn and 2000s Vince Vaughn Frat Pack comedies. I eat eleven-course tasting menus and dollar pizza. I want to travel everywhere, from winding cobblestoned city streets to wide-open deserts and plains.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a literary agent--I represent authors and sell their books to publishers. It's amazing. In previous versions of my life, I practiced law and taught high school English. I write a bit.
I’m really good at
- Baking
- Literary analysis (super useful, that one)
- Making friends wherever I go and keeping in touch with them
- Planning trips
- Scrabble
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just a few of each...

Books: Middlesex, Pride and Prejudice, The Sun Also Rises, The Portable Dorothy Parker. And so. many. more.

Movies: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Wedding Crashers, The Princess Bride, Midnight in Paris. I tend to see more independent films but re-watch lighter fare.

TV: The Newsroom, Friday Night Lights, Gilmore Girls.

Music: Current alternative like The Killers. 90's alternative/grunge like Nirvana and Veruca Salt. A smattering of everything else. And I won't start things off between us with a lie--I love Taylor Swift.

Food: Caesar salad, very rare steak, and French fries would be my last-meal menu, but I love trying new foods/cuisines/restaurants. Pizza and tasting menus: both excellent.
The six things I could never do without
- Friends around the country and the world
- New food to try
- Books, all the books
- Seeing a new place (preferably more than one) every year
- Theatres of all sorts
- Sunglasses (I have weirdly sensitive eyes)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My dreams and how to achieve them. Where I want to travel to next and how to make it happen. Increasingly, how to make my lifestyle better match my ideals.

And you know, how to find time to do the laundry.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends or crashed out on the couch. Or at the opera or a movie or a concert...who knows, it's New York.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"I want all that stupid old shit, like letters and sodas."
You should message me if
You're smart, witty, and fun. You live in the New York vicinity. You like books. You want to grab a drink.
