My self-summary
I'm funny, honest, a bit of a smartypants, generous, a little strong-willed. I'm pretty fun and pretty game. I value curiosity, kindness, appetite, surprise, rigor, a capacity for joy, and if you make me laugh regularly, you've got me.
What I’m doing with my life
I run a small but well-regarded theater company focused on new work. I love it, mostly. You don't have to. Cough up a little respect and occasional curiosity and that'll do. Please be passionate about whatever you do, whether it's what pays the bills or not.

Otherwise-- I love to cook, bake, read, delight at the occasional urban adventure, travel when I can, and lots and lots of walking keeps me sane. Love to go out to eat, but love a dinner party more. Happy whenever I hear live music or go a museum or the movies and wish I did more often. I find deep, dorky solace in jigsaw puzzles.
I’m really good at
Where I'm from you don't talk about yourself like this. Ack! Ok... according to my nephews, I make a mean pie (cherry, nectarine/blueberry, tomato/cheese, even). I'm a loyal friend. I can pick things up with my toes, and can usually finish the crossword puzzle.
Professionally-- analyzing text, talent and personality (and inferring the latter two from the former); in other words, my job. That sounds pretentious and intense, doesn't it? I'm not that scary. But I do appreciate proofreading.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a good amount of curly reddish hair. Otherwise, it depends what one is looking for, doesn't it?

I'm no yoga teacher but have a nice body. I've been told I have to post a full body picture, because otherwise the assumption is that I'm a secret giant fatty. You might just have to gamble.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In the last few months read Shadows on the Hudson, Pastoralia, The Goldfinch, and Olive Kitteridge, all of which I enjoyed immensely. Just started Patrick Melrose anthology. Last LBJ installment is waiting for me, patiently.

I liked Friends With Money, Under the Skin and Grand Hotel Budapest, the most recent movies I've seen.

I love food, whether I'm making it or eating out. I'm happy with a cheeto or a bouillabaisse, and ecstatic with a stinky cheese.
The six things I could never do without
my pathologically friendly dog
a nice hot bath
the morning paper
every possible variety of spinach pie
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sadly, how to raise more money; what I'm forgetting; how to be better to the environment; what I am going to eat next
On a typical Friday night I am
At the theater. But maybe there's dinner out after. Or maybe people over for dinner! Or maybe slumped on the sofa eating crackers and watching bad tv, if it's been that kind of week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once dreamt that I was at the Whitney and crapped in the Claes Oldenburg Soft Toilet.
You should message me if are curious! And if you live nearish to downtown Manhattan, are close-ish to my age, etc. Being the first to reach out isn't my strength, so I'm afraid you'll have to be the one to write first.

I took a big long break from this -- we're in the middle of our lives, they are busy, right?-- but am trying to get on board again. Help me out?
