I enjoy conversation over a good beer. Musing on paper with ink. And poring over the economic-social history of civilizations.

And being scrappy.

I work in politics but the other half of my life finds itself at the gym, artwalks, museums, dive bars with friends or at a coffee shop ambitiously writing my memoirs.
What I’m doing with my life
becoming a paper-pushing bureaucrat and loving every minute of it.
I’m really good at
writing essays
arguing
shuffleboard
relaxing in a hammock
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes. Smile. Colorful personality. In that order.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books:

A Wrinkle in Time, Madeleine L'Engle
1984, George Orwell
The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Milan Kundera
Sirens of Titan, Kurt Vonnegut

Music:

There's so much but to name a few of my all time and recent faves- The Beatles (my first love), Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Radical Face, Beirut, Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire, Phantogram, Jenny Lewis, Alabama Shakes, Beach House, Bon Iver, Sigur Ros, DeVotchka, Edward Sharpe et al, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, etc.

Food:

ALL OF IT.

Movies:

I'm a huge softie for Scorsese films, namely Goodfellas and Casino- something about violent mobsters and hookers just does it for me. Some other greats are: Shawshank Redemption, Braveheart (I'm a huge sop), Goonies, Breakfast Club, Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, Rushmore, Amelie.
The six things I could never do without
Beer
friends/family
Contacts/glasses (because I'm legally blind)
pen/paper
Imagination
a sense of adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
mortality
love
time travel
socio-cultural evolution
On a typical Friday night I am
usually at a local or out to dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you.

Your user name isn't 'nastynate', 'funsocalguy', or some other boorish or otherwise trite handle.

You're not in the habit of wearing stiff-billed caps sporting your favorite football team.

You're not too cool for school.
