What I’m doing with my life
I tell stories about people, both real and invented.

I'm also an organizer at a theater group working from Skid Row. We have put on shows at major theaters, as well as less typical venues such as prisons and a tour of Bolivia.
I’m really good at
Folding the paper, turning off my phone, concocting breakfast, giving names to animals, finishing things, dancing in pre-ironic styles, buying fruit, helping others find their keys, drawing, convincing the cat, finding charming apartments for rent at decent prices, wrinkle free cloths without ironing, public speaking, Marxist dialectics, buying pianos, taking walks, forgetting names, design and other noble pursuits.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Talking Heads, Sun Ra, Bach, Ella Fitzgerald, Omar Souleyman, Leonard Cohen, Tinariwen.

Movies -

Six things I could never do without
I just need wine and Skype at this point. The rest is extra.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’d give everything I own for that gazelle
who, rising at night to his
harp and flute,
saw a cup in my hand
and said:
“Drink your grape blood against my lips!”
And the moon was cut like a D,
on a dark robe, written in gold.
