My self-summary
I was born in Boston but my heart belongs to a doctor I met in NYC.

These summaries are a lot harder than they should be, right?

If you know of any, I'm always down to go to a new bookstore.

I enjoy long walks on the beach, lying under the stars, and a frightening fear of death.

I think a sense of humor might be the most important thing in the world. Could save the world. Imagine if all the world's dictators had instead decided to be stand up comedians. I bet Mussolini had some great one liners.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm getting my MFA in film right now (writing and directing movies, not studying them) at Columbia. I went in straight out of undergrad, where I also studied film. 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 study 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
Raging Bull, On The Waterfront, Groundhog Day, Annie Hall, Crimes and Misdemeanors, The Searchers, Fanny and Alexander, The Heartbreak Kid, Punch Drunk Love, The Shining, E.T., Buffalo '66, Cyclo.

American Pastoral, Leaves of Grass, Slaughterhouse-Five, Cannary Row, The Executioner's Song, Cathedral by Carver, Wallace Stevens, Borges, Donald Bartheleme, Jim Thompson, Chekov, Gogol

The Wire, Breaking Bad, Seinfeld, Bobs Burgers, Arrested Development, Freaks and Geeks

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...)

I used to be really picky, but I've been trying to be adventurous now. Recently: Mexican, mussels and oysters...
The six things I could never do without
PB&J (grape jelly, please and thank you), Woody Allen (comfort food), the MET, friends, a notebook and gl2 pen, yeungling
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 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.
