My self-summary
I just returned to New York after living for 3 years in London and 1 year in Milan. It was a fabulous four years, but I am glad to be back! I am a serial entrepreneur, and have just started my third business. I am obsessed with P.G. Wodehouse, Wallace Stevens, coffee, French and Italian wine, tennis, and adventurous eating.
What I’m doing with my life
Hmm, eating, working, sleeping. I like to walk around the city, especially its more obscure corners. I cook a lot - French and Thai are my favorites, and I throw the occasional cocktail party.
I’m really good at
Actually i've neglected to 'keep it real' lately. Do I need to make a conscious effort to 'keep it real'? Anyone who knows about this phenomenon please contact me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm argumentative.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Writers - Nabokov, Norman Rush, Alice Munro, Mary Gaitskill, Bellow, Borges, Carpentier. Pynchon, Barthelme, McCarthy
Wallace Stevens, Hart Crane, John Ashbery, Whitman, those types.
Music - yes i like music.
Um, movies, i'm not so good on that one....Any suggestions?
Shows? I dunno. The Stinky Cheese Man was fun.
Food? French, Italian, Thai, Middle Eastern. I have a hankering for some Yemenite cuisine - anyone want to join me?
The six things I could never do without
Chinon, Bourgueil, illegal raw milk cheese from France, other contraband items, gin, vermouth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
'the summer will reveal itself to those whose hearts are true...and to the faithless few'
On a typical Friday night I am
Hmm, either out at a restaurant, or home with a good book and a Barolo, and maybe some food....

I invited a girl back to my place to see my stamp collection but was cruelly rebuffed. She said: "Philately will get you nowhere."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Oh i'll admit to anything.

'If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you.' - I just decided to insert a random Oscar Wilde quote here.
You should message me if
You are talkative, cultured, flirtatious, a bit aggressive even, intellectual but relaxed. Joie de vivre is a necessary ingredient.
