    What do you actually do all day? Write, not write, worry about the writing + the not writing. Bookended by coffee + wine

    Favorite song growing up? St. Elmo’s Fire. I will think of (10) more in 30 mins and be so stressed that I didn’t include them.

    My biggest secret is… I’m straight (no, I’m not)

    Why do you live in Los Angeles? So I can be three hours younger than my friends in New York

    My motto is… I don’t know.. “Never go with a hippie to a second location."

    My alter ego is… WAY taller than me

    The last drink I had was… Red last night

    My secret crush is… Lip from Shameless? Merritt Wever? Carrie Brownstein? J LO? Julianne Nicholsen? Prince Harry?

    What was your first job? Growing up, I worked at a bagel shop for a hot minute. Jewish rite of passage.

    If you had one day left to live in LA, what would you do? Why? Do you know something I don’t know? Is it bad?

    Coming from? Going to? Going to work.

    What is your favorite work of art? My tits? I’m kidding. Has anyone ever said that? I’ve always had a thing for Dali’s Persistence of Memory.

    Who should we know? Yourself. And then me. And then please explain me to me.
