A British designer who I follow once said to live your life so that, in retrospect, it makes for a great story. I think that's good advice.
I'm restless. Martha Graham: "There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others."
I was always interested in storytelling and technology. I started out doing the starving artist thing, and people found it useful that I knew how to use technology to help with that. But then I got bored, and decided to flip the priorities, and that's been working out really well for me.
I started and sold a company, and I've spent awhile now trying to figure out what the next chapter is. There's a big idea on the horizon, but the timing is a bit out of my hands. So, trying to figure it out until that happens or does not happen.
I play games, watch horror movies, and workout at a ridiculous gym.
I may soon be splitting my time between New York and LA, and I would be very happy about that.
I'll sometimes take work with just a vague sense of how to get it done, and then work my butt off to get up to speed on something obscure so that I can get it done. It's stressful, but at least I learned something?
I'm also really good at bridging the creative/capitalist divide. I would love to argue with you about this.
I like genre things and strong aesthetics. So, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror, period drama, and stories constructed with similar tropes. That goes for movies, TV, books, and games.
I'm terrible at music, it's a part of culture that I always feel behind on. Ask me about it, and give me something to listen to. I'll give you some podcasts in return.
I love television, because TV is awesome right now, and I really enjoy complex, long-form storytelling.
My books line up with my TV and movies, tho they also include some nonfiction, mostly about NYC history and urbanism these days.
Accouterments of masculinity. Monogamy and non-monogamy. Gay stuff and queer stuff and what the hell I want out of life.
Oh and cat pics. That's like 15% of every day.
If the world says it's time to go
