My self-summary
Someone once told me that, to him, I was "the most extroverted introvert" he knew. Make of that what you will.

Deputy editor for a film website, freelance film critic/editor, overall energetic arts and culture consumer.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm plotting my next move while I find enjoyment and illumination, cultural or otherwise, on the side.
I’m really good at
Reading, writing, watching, listening, meeting new people, thinking, reflecting, yearning
The first things people usually notice about me
My passion for art and life...and that I'm a bit of an "old soul" at heart, or so I'd like to think.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Since I'm constantly exploring and discovering new things in all those areas, I'm just going to list recent favorites.

Most recent film I've seen that I loved: "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping" on the mainstream front, "Paterson" (the best movie of 2016, imo) and "20th Century Women" on the arthouse front. Also, I see a fair amount of old movies in theaters; my most recent discovery: "The Candy Snatchers" (1973). I could probably quote "Die Hard" verbatim from start to finish.

I've only recently been getting more into television. My current obsession: "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story." "The X-Files" forever!

Most recent book I've read that I loved: Henry James's "The Portrait of a Lady."

Most recent music I've heard that I loved: Leonard Cohen's "Songs of Love and Hate" (RIP). I'm also a pretty big classical-music buff; my current obsession: Anton Bruckner's (sorely underrated) Sixth Symphony. Gustav Mahler is everything.

Most recent play I saw that I loved: Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" in that new Ivo van Hove-directed Broadway production with Ben Whishaw, Saoirse Ronan, and others. And if you count operas: I recently saw Kaija Saariaho's "L'Amour de Loin" at the Metropolitan Opera and quite liked that, too.
The six things I could never do without
Art
Love
Friends and family
Record stores
My senses (for being able to experience things to the fullest)
My brain
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, love and art
My career (these days, that means deadlines and ideas to pitch)
How to better myself
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about, devouring what culture there is to devour, making personal connections, and so on
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm probably one of the few people on Earth who doesn't really care for Radiolab. Sorry if that's a deal-breaker for you.
