My self-summary
Okay. I think we can all agree that laughing is good, Central Park is nice and The Met is a very big building with lots of pretty things in it. Every profile I've read seems to include those general concepts. And wine. People seem to like wine as well as good conversation.

I love all of those things as well, so unless you're an agoraphobic, Philistine, tee-totaling, mute, we're probably already on the same page.

To add some more, I really love food and cooking and anything related. I will happily debate the top five NY burgers or watch them make cheese at Eatily or sit in bliss after a perfect soup dumpling. I also cook and I get very excited when my protein touches the pan and makes a perfect sizzle and I know my heat is right. So if you've never fallen in love with something you ate...well that's sort of sad.

Arts. Yes I like the arts. A lot. Movies, books and anything with a story involved can get me going. I think that's the key factor, a story of some sort. Even most paintings contain stories in my eyes. But, I don't know, jazz for instance has zero story to it. I hate jazz. And dance. Though if you love jazz or dance maybe you can explain them to me. Oh and sitting through a musical tends to make me wonder what freaking planet I've landed on. Recently Game of Thrones has probably surpassed musicals on my hate-list. I watched the first two seasons and just couldn't so I quit. Now with each passing year I hate it more as I have to continue to listen to people around me babble on and on about it while I once again wonder what freaking planet I'm on. But other than that I'm probably interested. But liking the arts to me doesn't mean being artsy. It's a fine line. Lets just say that I'd list Die Hard as one my favorite movies as well as Casablanca and The Godfather.

As you can maybe tell from my opening, I'm a bit sarcastic. Though as you can hopefully tell by my carefully selected picture with my niece, I'm also a big sweetheart.

That sounded sort of stupid.

Look, if you've read this far you might as well just email me. That's much easier.
What I’m doing with my life
I write books. Fictional novels. "What are your books about?" seems like a great question to ask me, I know. But it's surprisingly difficult to answer. It's a very complex question for an author. If I could sum it up quickly, well I wouldn't have had to write all those books. :)
Recently I was given the opportunity to rebuild publishing a bit by going the independent route. Some days this seems like the best idea ever and I feel like I'm at the forefront of the industry. Some days I wonder what on earth I'm doing. So, you know. Same old same old.
I’m really good at
Cooking, riddles, bar activities, remembering quotes from books and movies, being a nerd, laughing, kissing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm guessing something in my head/face area? Is there anyone out there that read this question and said "Oh obviously my..."
I mean. Unless you got a kicken bod or awesome ink or something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Great Gatsby, just about anything on HBO, waaaaay too many movies to list, any cooking show. My latest jam is The Great British Baking Show. It's a magical show full of British people making cakes and I love it.

I hate Game of Thrones.
Six things I could never do without
Six things I can't live without? Hmm. You know what? I'm just going to Brer Rabbit the shit out of this.
1. Sinks with separate hot and cold taps
2. People who confuse having an ideology with having a personality
3. Boring kissers
4. Sharks
5. Mushrooms
6. Kevin Smith

Yes. I can not live without those things. Please do not take them away. No. Stop. Ah. No.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what the hell I'm supposed to write here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating a pint of Ben and Jerry's in my bathtub.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will rock the f$&! out to Taylor Swift and P!NK.
You should message me if
So today my apartment was painted and I wasn't allowed in it. I work from home so I was basically in exile all day. I went to The Met and The Frick, then went down to Corner Bistro for lunch, then took the subway to Grand Street and wandered a bit before hitting up Chinatown ice cream Factory. Then I walked with my banana and mango ice cream past the various civil center buildings and debated stopping off at The Patriot for a beer but opted to head back north and wait out my time in the park. And now I want to have a drink and people watch.

I figure my flight path on a random day when I'm forced to be away from my desk is a good indicator.

If any of that strikes you, go ahead and write.
The two of us
