My self-summary
I'm a bit of a firecracker.
What I’m doing with my life
Catching babies. Plus growing arugula in the springtime, climbing to alpine lakes in the summer, through slot canyons in the fall, and cooking with wine in the winter. But mostly I just listen to This American Life.
I’m really good at
Wining and dining my friends and ranting and raving about just about anything.
The first things people usually notice about me
Biking through a red light, with a yoga mat and a safety vest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Everything Shakespeare, Melville, Faulkner, Morrison, Flaubert, McCarthy, and Murakami. On my bedside table: Doce cuentos pelegrinos de García Márquez.

I could watch Annie Hall and Grizzly Man every day.

The Wire (of course), The Sopranos, Chappelle. Wild America with Marty Stouffer is a classic.

Driving across country to Leonard Cohen, running across the city to Radiohead. Bachata in the morning, Waylon Jennings in the afternoon, and D'Angelo at night.

The summer's first tomatoes. Wild blueberries. Rosemary from my garden.
The six things I could never do without
Sunshine to bask in
Dancing in the kitchen
Weekend trips to the coasts
Dirt under my nails
A job that makes me want to get out of bed in the morning
The people I love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
social justice, global inequality, the opioid crisis, and the general idea of that article in Harper's.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes I fall asleep reading about medical problems. Some nights I march in the streets. But with you I want to find a honky tonk bar in El Paso, or blast narcocorridos on the way to the mountains.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"My God Alvy, there are people out there from The New Yorker magazine!"
You should message me if
You'd like to climb a mountain, dance the two-step, or go on a date to the hardware store.
