A little about me: I'm a southpaw. Born and raised in NYC. Studied english and physics at university. Carpenter. Musician. Spent some years country living, learning to build, grow food, cook. Never did learn how to darn socks though...Unlearnt some of my disco/city slicker-ness, though I still have a slight weakness for 70's shirts and ties, The Guggenheim, and subway cars...
I love making beautiful things, be they ephemeral, like music or fire, or enduring, like a beautifully remodeled old house.
Pluck me from this purgatorial online dating carousel and you will have my undying gratitude. ;)
American TV: Deadwood, The Wire, Breaking Bad. Game of Thrones.
For movies, good sci fi epics, or smart dramas. Interstellar, Edge Of Tomorrow. Match Point. Flawless, to name a few. Bill Murray is a delight.
I sometimes play fiddle music (Appalachian and Cajun) so a lot of my listening is to those genres. I love old Jazz, Bix Biederbecke, Louis Armstrong. On through Miles Davis. Ray Charles is a treasure. Rock'n'Roll, The Rolling Stones, Sonic Youth, Radiohead and Modest Mouse. And Americana, Iron and Wine, Wilco, Shovels and Rope, etc. Gotta get a David Bowie mention in here as well.
Love to cook and to cook for others. I like to find tasty things to do with whatever's coming out of the garden.
