My self-summary
My biggest regret is that I don't like peanut butter. Bookish, nerdy, shy. Autodidact.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the book-buyer and owner of a small used bookshop in San Francisco. I love my job.

I write cautionary tales for adults, and trudge daily through a novel that I will never complete.

I read. A lot.
I’m really good at
Clickin' my tongue really loud. Taking up valuable space with my bike on bart during commute hours. Noticing the subtle dynamics between Scully and Mulder. Daydreaming. Giving myself bad haircuts. Growing facial hair. Absolving myself of social responsibilities to watch another episode of Doctor Who. Worrying. I'm really good at worrying.
The first things people usually notice about me
My brother. I have an identical twin brother who also lives in Oakland and works in San Francisco. People think I'm him.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Pancakes. And Bacon.
The six things I could never do without
Rainy Days.
Pancakes. And Bacon.
Doctor Who
My bicycle.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sentence structure, punchy dialogue, character development, how to re-fashion book sections to accommodate a new library, people, things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working late, reading on the bart ride home, writing, watching a movie, going on a late night bike ride.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was seven I used to call my bellybutton a Salivou. I think that's how to spell it. Pronounced: Sa - lee - voo.

I have no idea why.
You should message me if
You're genuine. You want to ride bikes to a cemetery. You want to go to an A's game. Or you want to do something else ....
