My self-summary
I'm good at making plans but better at implementing them. I tend to sound like I know what I'm talking about; it's sometimes also true. I express love by cooking for people, making fun of them, and organizing them to be together in beautiful places.
What I’m doing with my life
Living in a cottage. Playing outside. Buying what's in season. Perfecting my kale salad recipe. Learning how to surf. Starting a company.
I’m really good at
Since shit is going to hit the fan, I think it's going to be all about our post-apocalyptic skills. Mine include: Storytelling, backwoods cooking, making up games, rolling joints, gardening, cuddling for warmth.
The first things people usually notice about me
Whatever emotion i'm feeling; i'm easy to read :0)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It's the golden age of TV! I like good plots and i can't deny. Also good and evil, cops and robbers. A little psychodrama is cool too. Narcos is my recent favorite. Also The Wire, Friday Night Lights, Game of Thrones, West Wing, Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad, Peaky Blinders. What did people do before TV on DVD?

The Lobster is the last movie I saw. So weird! Sneakers is the movie I've seen the most times. Hoosiers is the best sports movie ever, and I do like a good sports movie.

I love to read anything and everything, the longer the better.

Fiction: David Foster Wallace understands our time better than anyone. Really sad that he took his own life. Salman Rushdie is an impressionist painter with words. Tolkein was my childhood love and then all the fantasy writers trying to copy him. Haruki Marukami is like drinking white tea in a minimalist apartment. Recently into George Saunders -- crazy shit.

Non fiction: I read a lot about politics. Robert Caro, Taylor Branch. What it Takes by Richard Ben Cramer.
The six things I could never do without
The only thing I really couldn't do without is my friends and family. But if had six other things

A sharp chef's knife
Sunny days
Strong tea in the morning
Games
Books
The chance to do work I really care about
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fate of humanity. The next time I get to do something fun outside. Putting things on my to do list. Crossing things off my to do list.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chillin' on the back porch
You should message me if
You think the best parties end with people getting sweaty on the dance floor. It bothers you that everyone on the subway is staring at their cell phone, and then you do it too. You think it's fun to talk back to the TV. You don't take yourself too seriously, but you don't fuck around either.
