My self-summary
Filmmaker, food-eater, air-breather -- all around human.

Lover of dogs, cats, and Mexican food.

I enjoy long walks on the beach, lying under the stars, and a frightening fear of death.
What I’m doing with my life
Just graduated from film grad school and am now exploring this thing called the "real world." Freelancing, etc.

If you know Spielberg or JJ Abrams give them a ring for me.

Thinking about what it'd be like if I had a cat. Wishing I had a cat. Dreaming about having a cat. I really want a cat.

Even though I studied film, I pinky promise I'm not a film snob.
I’m really good at
Modesty. Like crazy good. Maybe the best.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard is a different color than the rest of my hair. I have my red-haired jewish grandmother to thank for that. Thanks, Olga.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
MOVIES
The Heartbreak Kid, Punch Drunk Love, Buffalo '66, Ratcatcher, A Serious Man

BOOKS
American Pastoral, Leaves of Grass, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Executioner's Song, Cathedral by Carver, Wallace Stevens, Jim Thompson, just read Lincoln in The Bardo and loved it.

TV SHOWS
The Wire, Seinfeld, Bobs Burgers, Arrested Development

MUSIC
The Replacements, Big Star, Bob Dylan, Brian Eno, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, Titus Andronicus, The Fall, Wire, Guided by Voices, Can, Neu!, The Monks, Pavement, Charles Mingus. Lots of Post-Punk stuff. 70s power pop. I love music and try to listen to it as much as I can. Spotify is a godsend.

(not that I sort of rock out whenever "Shake it Off" by Taylor Swift comes on at the bodega or anything...)

FOOD
I used to be really picky, but I've been trying to be adventurous now. Recently: mussels and oysters...
Six things I could never do without
PB&J (grape jelly, please and thank you), Filmstruck, the MET, friends, a notebook and gl2 pen, yeungling, Pod Save America
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Deciding which movie theatre in the city is the best. IFC has the best seats, but Film Forum has the best movies. Decisions, decisions.

The fact that cupcakes are just mini cakes.

Scripts that I'm writing and how I can make them not be awful.

UPDATE: Axl Rose is the rose in Guns and Roses! But then who is the gun?
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking with friends, editing, writing, seeing movies, on set, seeing friends.
You should message me if
You want to. I'm not your boss.

You like books and movies and want to chat about them.

You want to start a family band.

You're interested in incredibly faithful reenactments of the last episode of Seinfeld.

Chatting here is fun, but meeting up after a few messages is more fun.
