My self-summary
Enthusiastic but hopeless surfer, coffee addict, music fanatic. I love cooking, reading, kitchen-dancing, gardening, camping, cycling and conversation.
I’m really good at
Reading. Copy-editing. Choosing good campsites. Making really good breakfasts. Eating cheese. Playing guitar. Studying. Falling off surfboards.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Marilynne Robinson, Flann O'Brien, Emily St John Mandel, Zadie Smith, Iain [M] Banks, Donna Tart, William Gibson.

Joanna Newsom, The Dirty Three, Led Zeppelin, Hope Sandoval, Cat Power, the Beatles, Nick Drake, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Jimi, Dylan, Aretha. Recent faves: Pinegrove, Told Slant, Courtney Barnett, Daughter, the Antlers.

The Wire, the Walking Dead, Les Revenants, Firefly, The Night Manager, art/history/music docos.

I like films a lot, in a haphazard kind of way. Usually try to see a bunch at every film festival.

Food: vegetarian mainly, though seafood is good. Chili, olives, pepper, cheese, more cheese, capers, etc. Wine is one of the food groups, right?
The six things I could never do without
the trickwork closeup of stars on a summer's night when I've fallen over laughing with a friend in a field somewhere
good music
that joke format where person A says something like, "this song is amazing!" and person B says, "Ew, YOU'RE amazing."
good writing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The perfect breakfast, editing conventions, whatever I'm reading at the time, memory, history, summer, surfing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally hanging out with friends or my flatmates listening to music/drinking wine etc
