creatively: falling way behind in making new work
personally: fighting the debate between moving to baltimore or commuting from dc.
I'm usually carrying a big coffee wherever I go... usually either Dunkin Donuts or some obsessively complicated pour-over thing. there's no middle ground for me.
i'm a sucker for the unique tactile sense of newsprint and ink.
According to itunes, my recent and/or top listens include: jeff buckley, radiohead, the slip, yeasayer, delta spirit, wilco, and james blake. revent vinyl acquisitions include: serge gainsbourg, debo band, jose gonzalez, zero 7, yo la tengo, chuck brown and the soul searchers, the clash, miles davis, talking heads/tom tom club.
now that I spend three hours of my life in my car everyday, so there's a lot of NPR happening
I'll eat almost anything, or at least try it. indian. middle eastern. japanese. thai. french. italian. even british. if I had to pick a favorite restaurant, there's this great lebanese place in shepherd's market in london...
• art and culture
• a camera
• notebooks and writing implements
my brain never learned how to turn off, so something's always on in the background: art, family, music, friends, travel, sports, memories, work, play, life, the death of print media, and everything in between.
• with my friends.
• in my studio working on new projects.
• at galleries/premieres/openings/etc.
• at one of the dive bars down the street from my apartment or studio.
• helping my best friend rebuild his hurricane-flooded moped. (update: it runs! need a new project now...)
• watching films.
i'm a minor perfectionist.
I'd rather commute than give up on dc and move to baltimore (ok, it's not such a secret...)
you can convince me to either
a) move to baltimore.
b) stay in dc and commute every day.
or really if you just want to say hi.
