My self-summary
"Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: “Mankind.” Basically, it’s made up of two separate words, mank and ind. What do these words mean? It’s a mystery, and that’s why so is mankind."
-- Jack Handey
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a therapist at a shelter for homeless kids.

This is beautiful and what's most important to me:
I’m really good at
Being an ambivert, neuroplasticity, and converting any optometrist joke into an opthamologist joke.

And giving my cat an occasional Saltine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like all words, regardless of their arrangement. I love reading and falling asleep to audiobooks. They launch my dreams into interesting orbits.

I love Don Delillo and George Saunders -- basically anybody who's bright, funny, has a big heart and can write a dazzling sentence.

I watch, re-watch and re-re-watch movies all the time. I really like Robert Altman, Adam Curtis, Melville, Herzog, and Terence Malick. The Jerk is perfect. The Long Goodbye is perfect. Airplane! is perfect. I usually like Charles Bronson for some reason. He's like a vengeful old-testament god who's on our side. Everybody needs one of those sometimes.

I think Albert Brooks is the funniest person alive.

And i love cop shows from the 70s--what a golden age for exotic pets and streetwise sidekicks.
Six things I could never do without
Dire wolves, mastodons, wabi-sabi, the film editing of Roderick Jaynes, the word petrichor, duc loi kitchen, l’appel du vide, and mission district banana-belt sunshine. Sorry, that's eight. I hate six. Eight is better than six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Coincidentia oppositorum. and the possibility of parallel universes with only perpendicular parking.
On a typical Friday night I am

You should message me if
You're looking for a sincere, honest connection. And if you can basically laugh all the time but still handle being authentic and vulnerable when it really matters.

And if you're a beach bum private investigator living on a houseboat you won in a card game. I'd definitely probably get along with you.

Or just if you can help me spell words like restaurant and liaison.
The two of us
