My self-summary
Chicago Tribune and Guardian US writer, regular at Newcity magazine, and just wrote a one-off piece for Grindr (yes, seriously). I've also got a contract for a few books I'm working on for publication over the next several years. Occasionally, I write choreography.

I've been in a relationship with a really great lady who's homesick for New York and leaving in a few months to move back out there. Meanwhile, I'm single and dating again. Sigh, transitions.

If you like me, write me. I refuse to pay for this service, so otherwise I'll never know.
I’m really good at
Writing words. Also, writing about art, understanding art, everything art-related. Also, fiction, poetry, socializing. I interviewed Kurt Vonnegut once, and think I did a fine job of it.
The first things people usually notice about me
For sure, I look much younger than I actually am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If you've ever read Paul Fussell's book Class, I'd like to discuss it with you. That or Gravity's Rainbow.
Six things I could never do without
Intellectual work
Art
Friends
Socializing
Beer
My computer
Love (I know, that's seven, but it ties it all together)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Programming my robot, tinkering with the PSI to increase strength enough so it can rip off the vault door and carry all those gold bars to our getaway starship; tunneling under the bank from the building I rented next door, which I have established as a hat store (yes, we sell bowlers and slouchy flower-picking sun hats); telling my manservant to "hurry the fuck up."

Trying to figure out a way to magically warp the reality/imagination barrier long enough to scream at Charlie Brown to not kick the fucking football. If I have enough time I'd like to throw my drink in Lucy's face, too. Dreadful little woman.

Or, you know, laying in bed watching TV shows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I made out with and felt up my babysitter when I was, like, nine. She was a Catholic school girl, and it was all perfectly lovely and childlike. And hot.

Also, I think sex on a first date is a good sign.
You should message me if
You're a Nazi seeking punching. I got you covered.

You like riding bikes. I've been sitting and writing so much this summer I could use a bike partner to help work off this 10-15 extra I've got, and I love riding.

You're *not* a Republican or otherwise have problems with empathy.

You want to hang out with someone who is potential serious relationship material, and is loyal, loving, kind and honest.

Bonus points if you or live in or around Ravenswood/Lincoln Square.
