About Me


I dunno. Try to write good stuff? Learn a bit, live a bit. All that jazz.


As I said, I'm an ex-film student who has just realized, with a move into a new apartment how much couch room he has. I love theater, film, television and the New York, not necessarily in that order. I am a loquacious (sometimes loghorrheic) guy. I am an expert on cheap ethnic food in NYC, which I blog about sometimes, and I try never to eat the same cuisine two times in a row. I guess for more than that, you're going to have to get to know me.


I try to be a good guy, as much as possible. I go by my gut ethical sense and try to adjust when I feel I might be wrong.

My philosophy for my art is that I have to live to write, so I seek to engage in an interesting life.

My philosophy for my self is to take risks and enjoy one's self without compromising that sense of right.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I realized I have both a couch and a sleeping loft at my new place and in the spirit of the guy who I'm subletting from, a Norwegian college professor currently teaching in Norway, I thought about both my own potential travel and the idea of putting my "couch-space" to good use. Plus the whole thing just sounded neat.


Had some ladies stay here from Montreal. Some ladies from Austria. A couple really nice brothers from Sweden. Other than that, just friends.


Film (The 400 Blows, Bigger Than Life, Annie Hall)
Television (Freaks and Geeks, Spaced, Clone High)
Music (Andrew Bird, They Might Be Giants, Leonard Cohen)
Theater (Shepard, Lori-Parks, Mamet occasionally)
Writing (Philip Roth, Michael Chabon, Nabokov)
Food (good)
