What’s your job?
“In-house creative at Quality Wine & Spirits.”
Other than your job, what are your claims to fame?
“I’ve been designing posters for Transmission at Club Jäger for almost two years now. I have a pretty solid working relationship with Jake Rudh, who pretty much handed me this gig as soon as I asked for it. I don’t get paid, but I do have a stack of mix CDs. I also have done freelance work for Vita.mn—including last year’s Mad Men party—Vitamin Water, IFP, and I made a small contribution to the graphic collateral for Voltage Fashion Amplified, which I think is pretty neat.”
What’s your relationship status?
“Got a guy. We’ve been together a little over a year. He’s rad.”
Where are you most likely to be seen?
“I’m a bit of a homebody, but I always, always make it to Jäger for Transmission. I can be seen there, either out on the patio having drunken conversations or on the dance floor having a high-five face-off with Niles Schwartz. I also frequent Anchor Fish & Chips, because they have good fish.”
Where are you least likely to be seen?
“Too Much Love. What those kids are dancing to isn’t music.”
With whom are you most likely to be seen?
“I hang out with people who are at Transmission. On any given Wednesday I’ll be chatting up either one or two people throughout the night, or make conversation with 50 different people. Otherwise, I have my group of close-knit friends, but I’d feel weird naming them all, and none of them have Twitters. And if they do, they haven’t followed me. Oh, and I used to see Rob Callahan all the time.”
Where were you born?
What neighborhood do you live in now?
“Bryn Mawr—the more ghetto part, though.”
What’s your ride?
“I get around in my ’97 Chevy Lumina.”
What’s the best way for someone to start a conversation with you?
“I’m a socially awkward introvert, and therefore cannot abide small talk. I love to talk about British music, with an emphasis on the 80s. If you want to know the distinct qualities that separate Joy Division from New Order, you can ask me. But be warned: my answers tend to be long.”
