Melrose & Western, 11:07 Monday Night

I may be wired different. A troubled morning commute to work that features three flats (Nos. 23, 24, 25 for the year, if you’re counting, which I am) and an angry left hamstring leaves me arriving an hour and a half late to a busy Monday at work. Then I put in a long day playing catch-up that doesn’t see me leaving the office until 10:15 p.m.

And after all that I’m actually looking forward to the bike ride home. Because there’s literally few things more soothing to me than a slow and steady 15-mile night ride across the sleepy streets of Los Angeles.

Like I said: I may be wired different.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
