What I’m doing with my life
Fact-checking for magazines. Pouring wine for people.

Previously: teaching English, lying to children about dragons, short-order cooking. Sometimes I get paid to write but mostly I don't.
I’m really good at
Here is a list of bad things that, unfortunately, I'm good at: giving directions to strangers I've overheard on the street without stopping; unconsciously imitating the accent of the person talking to me; missing my subway stop because I was reading; being too early to events and parties; telling Dad jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look like a cartoon pilot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The little bronze sculptures in the 8th Ave. ACE station. The fact that any Emily Dickinson poem can be sung to the tune of “Amazing Grace.” Putting way too much time & effort into making the playlists at work.

Sometimes making curated little lists to demonstrate my good taste gives me an existential crisis. Let's talk about it instead?
Six things I could never do without
Something to write with, something to read, something to do with my hands. Glasses/contacts. Condiments. A wine key on me at all times. (We're assuming my friends and family aren't things, aren't going anywhere.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Academia. For someone whose job is drinking, I spend WAY too much time following grad students on Twitter, looking at MLA conference blogs, and reading thinkpieces on the state of the humanities. I know the stereotype about wine professionals is that if we’re not failed artists we’re failed intellectuals, but living up to the stereotype? It's giving me hives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hosting a board game night; cleaning out my wine fridge via my friends' mouths; reading in a bar; bartending.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I look ridiculous when I run. When I'm concentrating, I stick my tongue out unconsciously. I actually graduated from space camp.
You should message me if owning two typewriters makes you skeptical. I would be too.
