What’s your job?
“I’m a beboppin’ freelance writer and hopefully not-too-much-longer librarian.”
Other than your job, what are your claims to fame?
“I’m the co-founder and editorial director of Paper Darts, a literary magazine and book publishing press. My co-founders and I spend around 30 hours a week on it, so it’s kind of like a job, but also kind of like this needy baby thing that’s always there, demanding attention, and once in a while it burps or eats peas or something and then it’s all cute and worth it for a moment. Babies, man.”
What’s your relationship status?
Where are you most likely to be seen?
“The Greenway—that’s this hip new bike venue you’ve maybe heard about. Also, anything on the corner of 26th and Lyndale.”
Where are you least likely to be seen?
“Any sort of cool dance party that doesn’t involve lots of flailing and bluegrass jigs. Not enough jig joints in this town.”
With what people are you most likely to be seen?
“Charlie Bevis: economist, artist, rapper extraordinaire. And my wives, Jamie and Meghan from Paper Darts.”
Where were you born?
What neighborhood do you live in now?
What’s your ride?
“Biketimes all the way. Bustimes, too.”
What’s the best way for someone to start a conversation with you?
“Talk about how much better this party would be if there were fewer ‘hot beats’ and more jug tootin’/bone playing. Or just buy me four beers—that’s a pretty safe bet too.”
