I am a cat person.
I often leave my cell phone at home or keep it turned off: I can make plans without endless texted revisions. Besides, I think my mental health requires long periods of uninterrupted spacing out.
Music matters. I front a band. I'm always writing a new song in the back of my head.
I try to see movies in the theater. No plasma screen with surround sound can match the experience of sitting in the dark with strangers.
People think I'm younger than I am.
I shoot black and white film on an old Leica. I would rather peer through a loupe into a grainy contact sheet than flip through hundreds of images on my computer.
I enjoy old things. History interests me and I like to approach life with a little pageantry.
I used to be a contrarian but, nowadays, I keep my contrarianism on a tight leash, preferring to turn my attentions to higher interests.
I have a problem with authority figures, especially ones in uniforms. I know- boring. I'm getting over it.
I tend to overdress. I like surprises. My parties are well-attended and tend to go late into the evening.
I have spiritual interests- I read the tarot.
I have a lot of female friends but am striving to achieve gender parity in my inner circle.
I think professional sports are interesting on a sociological level and that they can be aesthetically beautiful but I don't watch them.
I'm a bike-rider.
I lived in New York for a long time. I still think it's unfair when the bars close at two.
I have a diastema. I have no tattoos or piercings but I have some interesting scars.
Making and recording sounds. And songs.

Don't bother to write if you can't communicate in complete sentences. If you're writing only to tell me that you're masturbating to my pictures or to give me a graphic description of your vagina, please don't waste my time.
