My self-summary
I was born here, but grew up there. And now I'm back.

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."
What I’m doing with my life
Building the future; pulling it out of the oven before it's fully baked.

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’m really good at
I'm ridiculously confident in my ability to learn new things. Probably too confident!

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.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have little hair, a blond beard, and a big smile. I'm guessing one of those, but who knows?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm so moody about choosing favorites, though I understand why this is useful.

How's 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.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Technology, media, storytelling, how they intersect and how they're changing. How the 21st century seems like it will unwind a lot of the 20th century, and what happens then. The aesthetics of everyday life.

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.
On a typical Friday night I am
The same thing we do every night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I fucking hate yoga. Not yoga itself — it's a little boring but whatever — but the *culture of yoga* that is particular to middle class white people. Which means I can't take a yoga class in New York. So I swing heavy iron with fucking unicorns and I like it.
You should message me if
I need to know

You're not afraid to break out
