Who is bought and sold? Who is beyond the law? Who is free to choose? Who follows orders? Who salutes longest? Who prays loudest? Who dies first? Who laughs last? -Barbara Kruger
"Now a question of etiquette: as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?"
35 years old. In the past, I've done a bit of work as a journalist for a national newspaper in the UK as well as for a beverage industry trade mag, a startup culinary website and for an information service that serves high net worth individuals. These days I'm the marketing director for a sign company - I develop content, guide content strategy, and do a little conversion rate optimization.

I speak a few languages. My hobbies are, well, pretty obvious - I'm here, aren't I? Though I've slowed down lately, my first love is reading, though, going back to when I was just a wee harasser of librarians. My favorites: Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow; Helen DeWitt's superb and way underappreciated The Last Samurai; Karl Popper, Fyodor Dostoevsky, N. Katherine Hayles, Alan Moore, Nikolai Gogol, Hannah Arendt, and many, many others.

I also like cooking, am a beer connoisseur and foodie, and I used to play keyboard in a born-again Christian salsa band, despite being a firm and unremitting agnostic. Hey, it was fun.

I love music, particularly stuff from the late 60s and 70s. I keep finding great albums I haven't heard yet. My favorite music comes from (in no order) Zappa, the Flamin' Groovies, the Stones, Malo, Creedence, Brian Eno, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Nine Simone, George Harrison, the unbelievably underrated Zimbabwean rock god Thomas Mapfumo, Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, Serge Gainsbourg, Francoise Hardy, Sparks, the Holy Modal Rounders, Talking Heads, Television, Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Joy Division, Roxy Music, T Rex, and so on.

I also like art, particularly Barbara Kruger, Bridget Riley, David Shrigley, Jackson Pollock, Turner, Rothko, Caravaggio, Raphael, Durer; a funny combination of abstract expressionism, (p)op art, and stuff that might be found in the Frick.
