Most of my brainspace is occupied by visual arts, theater, journalism, and design. I read more than I watch. What I expect from works of art or industry is simple: quality and intentionality—and, if we’re lucky, something new.

My five favorite things are strings of bare light bulbs, whiskey, oatmeal raisin cookies, and math. I’m also deipnophobic, but maybe we should discuss that over dinner.
