Simon relocated from Brooklyn to Seattle after making the biggest left turn of his life. He loves reading old romance paperbacks, eating soup in bread bowls, eating the bread bowl the soup was in, singing on trains, and watching movies about boarding-school rebellions. Look for him in the places you used to go to together.
