- I'm originally from New Jersey. I'm a sensible driver.
- I volunteer for a suicide hotline. I seize up if I get two e-mails in the same minute at work.
- I'm a podcast addict, but there's no feeling more satisfying than when my Unplayed playlist hits 0:00. This hasn't happened in years.
- I lived in DC for four years after college. I didn't work for the government.
- I listen to a ton of indie rock. I also get fired up by Luke Bryan and old Miles Davis songs.

Two good books.
Flight of the Conchords on DVD.
The Music Hall of Williamsburg. I'm at concerts there so often that I wonder why the bouncers don't hassle me for my share of the utilities.
That running watch my old roommate's dog mistook for food but keeps counting miles nonetheless.
Which theme-song-from-a-coming-of-age-TV-show is the best. I never watched Dawson's Creek, but that Paula Cole song, man...
