Originally from Toledo, Ohio, I spent the first eighteen years of my life plotting my escape. I've lived in Montreal, Los Angeles, Torino, Italy, and New York City.
In another incarnation, I danced and sang jazz. My pianist is the leader of The Duke Ellington Orchestra. I like researching and reading autobiographies —because I'm nosy like that.
Nocturnal at heart with a soft spot for the underdog, all of my friends are misfits and I prefer it that way. Cinema is one of the three great loves of my life.
Tom Waits is God.
I believe that everything you need to know about life can be found in the works of Lewis Carroll.
