My self-summary
My high score at Pac-Man is unremarkable, but I like to think that I would do all right in a real ghost and giant fruit battle.

When asked where I'm from, I usually just say that I'm originally from the South, but I'm a cultural hybrid. I lived all over this country and then abroad for several years until I settled up in Brooklyn 8 years ago. I sincerely doubt I'll ever quit New York, I have Parisian habits I'll never be rid of, and I'm pretty convinced that pie is the answer to most problems.

I like reinventing the wheel, terrible puns, the oxford comma, bearded gents and sleek fem boys and swarthy bears and nerdy jewish boys, ice cream cones at Coney Island, being good to my people, and trying to be a better man than my father.

I'm passionate about whatever ideas and activities I'm pursuing and I surround myself with people who are as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Hanging out with old people.
Talking at unparalleled length about socio-political conditions of the French 19th century.
I’m really good at
Making things & making out.
The first things people usually notice about me
The dimples generally seem to be a hit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Nina Simone, Florence & the Machine, Sam Cooke, John Jacob Niles, Leonard Cohen, Yma Sumac, coloratura sopranos. Old crooners. Sweet indie-ish stuff. This here's some data.

Books: L'éducation sentimentale, Arcadia, Tristram Shandy, Shamela, Rebecca, Les nourritures terrestres, Quatrevingt-treize, The House of Mirth, A Song of Ice & Fire, Letters to a Young Poet. Anything by Dickens, Zola, Edith Wharton, Jane Austen, Tolstoy.

Movies: My two favorites are Les Enfants de paradis (Carné) & Gone With the Wind (Fleming). Charade, The Lion in Winter, Annie Hall, Elizabeth, Donnie Darko, Psycho Beach Party, Election. Stupid action movies where the world is in danger of exploding.

TV: American Horror Story, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey.
Six things I could never do without
Things made of wool
Things made of wood
Things made of paper
Things made of flesh
Things made of concrete
Things made of sound and fury
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...chaque nouveauté doit nous trouver toujours tout entiers disponibles.
-A. Gide, Les Nourritures terrestres (livre IV).
On a typical Friday night I am
Making a nice dinner and sharing it with people who make me laugh. Watching a movie and being cozy. Playing parlor games if I can. Riding my bike to and from some of Brooklyn's finer entertainment spots.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Some people say 'cellar door' is the most beautiful collection of phonemes in the English language, but I would counter that 'polyp' is actually preferable.
You should message me if
If you have good stories of your own to share.

And I can also save you some time and tell you that you need not proceed further if you're not okay with the fact that I am a transguy. It's reasonable to assume that that's a deal-breaker for some folks in the same way that poor manners or those weird toe shoes are for me. There, doesn't that make things easier?
The two of us
