My self-summary
Aspire to always have my heart be open to those little birds who are the secrets of living, as e.e. cummings would say.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a filmmaker, writer, sound man, translator, and editor; constant imbiber of art and culture, frequent creator of music and food, and depending on seasonality, dabbler in baseball, soccer, and tennis.
Recently finished writing and directing my first feature film - which was one of the most taxing experiences of recent memory. Presently in the process of editing it.
I’m really good at
Negotiating trades in Settlers of Catan, culinary creativity, languages, naming a Seinfeld episode based on two seconds of sound.
The first things people usually notice about me
Medusa-like hair and an inscrutable accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ingmar Bergman and Liv Ullmann, Kieslowski's Dekalog, Salinger's shorts, Thelonious Monk's 'Round Midnight, Van Gogh's letters to Theo, the wisdom of Seinfeld, the poetry of Supreme Court opinions - from Ginsburg's sagaciousness to Scalia's vitriol, the moral complexity of the West Wing and The Wire, The Big Lebowski's embrace of life, Magritte's bowler hats, Proust's Madeleine cookies, Lou Reed's Berlin, Woody Allen's Manhattan, Rilke's Young Poet, Dvorak's New World, Donald Byrd's New Perspective, Leonard Cohen's Old Ideas, Nellie Mckay's versatility, Johannes Brahms' unrequited love for Clara Schumann, David Foster Wallace's essays, David Simon's approach to television, Kelly Reichardt's approach to film, Sun Ra's music and meditations on the universe, Cornell West's intellectual fire, Bareburger's veggie burger and fries (before they got big), a home-made pizza, David Lynch in all of his endeavors.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Art, philosophy, left wing resistance, morality, language, sexuality, passion, weed-induced ars poetica - and whenever a few of those intersect in some configuration, all the better...
On a typical Friday night I am
At an IFC midnight screening, at a concert, out bowling, or home relaxing with some weed.
You should message me if
You're comfortable in your own skin. Few things are sexier.
