From WBEZ in Chicago, these stories and more, when we come back... It's This American Life... Stay with us.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a creative producer in commercial video at a small production company... I do creative stuff on the side and am working on a script for a sci-fi distopian christmas thriller with a YA angle so I'm definitely going to be super famous very soon. At 32, I'm deep in the throes of a John Cusack a la High Fidelity "what does it all mean" introspective period and spend most of my free time crying in the rain. Seriously though, the future's never looked brighter. I'm better at life than I've ever been before, I don't look like a teenager anymore which is a total game changer and, as much as I may feel like it, I'm now able to resist the urge to use this space to quote poetry or song lyrics. Clearly, you've got me at a good time.
I’m really good at
The cell phone and the email, envisioning and inspiring.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the silver streak in my hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lately I've been on a biography kick. I just finished John Huston's autobiography "An Open Book" and right now I'm in the middle of one on Peggy Guggenheim called "Art, Lover". Next is "Fake!" by Clifford Irving, the story of Elmyr de Hory, the greatest art forger of our time.

Another Earth, Beginners, Submarine. My favorite film is probably Alfonso Cuarón's Great Expectations which is a minor work not universally praised but it's the film that made me fall in love with cinema.

Yo la Tengo, Chet Baker, Caetano Veloso, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Waits, Belle and Sebastian, Bill Evans, Elton John, Ben Folds, Stereolab, Joan as Police Woman, Joanna Newsom, Feist, Serge Gainsbourg, Conor Oberst, M. Ward, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Blossom Dearie, Neil Young, Graham Nash, Broken Social Scene, Mates of State, Gilberto Gil, Hall and Oates, Microphones, Modest Mouse, Ugly Casanova, Spiritualized, Beulah, Pulp, Guided by Voices, Jesus and the Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, I could go on...
Six things I could never do without
1. Expression (the arts, all of them, don't care if it's cheating)
2. Food and Drink (please don't say "foodie")
3. Camera (my personal creative outlet)
4. Knowledge and Information (my phone, the internet)
5. Understanding (of the Universe and our place in it)
6. Friends and Lovers to share the previous five with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Designer chairs and my future Lautner-power-pad.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out for music, movies, art, theater, or maybe just staying in with my Kindle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Lando Calrissian is my spirit animal.
You should message me if
You are a Woody Allen muse, dancer, harpist, jazz vocalist, fashion designer, gallery curator, you can help me with my French...

Or less specifically, you're a classy lady looking for someone to be classy with.

Or in a word...glasses.
The two of us
