My self-summary
I'm a writer and a Texan living in New York. Yes, I have an accent.

A couple years ago, I quit a soul-crushing job to start a film distribution business with a couple of friends. While that didn't work out, it was a great experience.

After that I was a freelance (yes, paid) screenwriter for a little over a yesr. I'm also back in graduate school for my Master's of Education. I've finished my coursework and am now student teaching. I'm still writing, but it is mostly for me.

My five year plan includes buying and renovating a cottage in France. Hopefully.

I've not read every book that is on my bookshelf, but I'm interested in each of them nonetheless.

I own a few typewriters and fountain pens. I don't use any of them as much as I probably should.

I have a terrible fear of vomiting.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting up the motivation to write; working to make a career in the film industry; trying to improve myself where I can, or embrace my own faults where I can't. All of this is getting easier.

I'm learning to cook. It's fun, but I'm starting off slow, mostly because I don't have someone to cook with me / to cook for.
I’m really good at
Conversation; writing; advice; forgiveness; humor; making
omelettes (though I might be out of practice).
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair; my honesty; the fact that I look like Eric Stoltz. Or Philip Seymour Hoffmann.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

L. Burnside; Red Hot Chili Peppers; The Rolling Stones; Robert Johnson; Vampire Weekend; Andrew Bird; The Who; Joe Cocker; Hank Williams; Queen; Broadway musicals; etc.

Movies (an abbreviated list): Primer, Werner Herzog, Mumblecore, Lena Dunham, Quentin Tarantino, Indies

And honestly, I'm quite taken with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

(Food) Things that are fried.
Six things I could never do without
My cats.
Intellectual curiosity and stimulation.
Film / Movies.
Other things, I'm sure.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My life: past, present and future; art; the world; writerly things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Staying at home more often than going out. Or trying to, anyway.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I'm nervous on our date I assure you I will admit everything that I should never admit on a date.
You should message me if
You wanna be my Ramona Flowers (or maybe my Marla Singer),

You find me cute; interesting; or if you just wanna chat... Or if you like my hair. I will let you touch it, you don't even have to ask,

If you want to pack a picnic when it gets warmer,

If you want someone to share a plated subscription with,

If this experiment appeals to you:

Or if moving to Europe for a few years interested you;

Or you want to come up and see my etchings.
The two of us
