My self-summary
I'm a single dad who enjoys life in L.A. and questioning --or at least making fun of-- just about everything. I'm a politically liberal, non-smoking, IPA-drinker who is not fat, bald, or boring.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in communications at a large non-profit, dealing with a lot of controversial medical/scientific issues. And I love it. I'm also raising a great son who is in his teens. That I love even more.
I’m really good at
Fatherhood, crossword puzzles, good jokes, very bad jokes, tennis, birding, and writing. Also, I'm an OK bass player (stand up).
The first things people usually notice about me
Funny; they never say. Man I hope it's not my nose. Although it might be that. You know what, I bet it is. but people would probably SAY it's my eyes. So yeah, my eyes. Or my nose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read mostly non-fiction, and enjoy every good movie and food out there, from old Truffaut to new Tarantino, and from a five dollar burrito to an elegant, handmade pasta at Angelini Osteria.

Music: My Spotify list includes Jeff Buckley, Local Natives, Lana Del Ray, the National, Deamau5, Fleetwood Mac, Wilco, Iron and Wine, Flaming Lips, Death Cab, and of course Jeff Buckley. Also, oddly, Electric Light Orchestra and the Carpenters. Don't judge.

TV: With the loss of The The Daily Show, which along with NPR could pretty much claim my entire exposure to broadcast news, I'm now drawn almost exclusively to Netflix etc. Transparent is a must watch. I loved the first season of Orange, the first couple seasons of House of Cards, and am wondering if I should dive into Unbreakable, True Detective, or something else. Hmm...

Books: Just finished Carter Beats the Devil (fun) and The Tender Bar (touching and pretty damn good), and am about to reread The Great Gatsby and Siddhartha. I welcome ideas for the next ones! Please!
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, music, skepticism, coffee, and good wine. Or beer.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You name it; I've over-thought it.
On a typical Friday night I am
packing my tennis bag for a fast game of doubles and a drink with friends afterwards.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently realized there are days when I've had coffee for breakfast and a beer for dinner and felt completely sated.
You should message me if
you share my love of cynicism wrapped in humor and my fear for the future of a country that believes in angels but not climate change.
