Contact David LaFontaine
I live in Chicago (when I’m not sampling wonderful airport cuisine – stale Starbucks paninis? Yum!).
The best way to reach me is email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, I know. Email is “the cockroach of the internet,” and if we’re connected via any of the social platforms, you can IM or DM, poke, prod or wave at me to your heart’s content. But email still provides a means of communicating that we all pay attention to, and that provides us with a way to compose complex thoughts and narratives.
New fun fact: I have recently moved from Los Angeles to Chicago. And before you ask, yes, I am aware that there is such a thing as “winter.” I grew up in Wisconsin, after all, where Chicago was to the south of us, and usually much warmer. I am finding out that “warmer” is definitely a relative thing, particularly in the “Windy City” — although that moniker was bestowed upon Chicago for reasons that have nothing to do with climate. Actually, windy was short for “windbag,” and was a pejorative in the 1870s, when Chicago was seen as a city full of greedy people. While I’m sure that Chicago has its share of greedy people (as does every large metropolis), I am finding the locals to be quite warm and friendly.
Well, as long as you don’t mention how bad the beloved Bears football team is doing this year…
You can find me on social media:
Besides “the Big Two,” I frequently post images, videos. and other stuff I run across that catches my eye to YouTube, Flickr, Instagram, and Prisma, and I have sold and licensed my content to publishers and agencies. If you see something that tickles your fancy, drop me a line. Or send me some of your creations.
‘Snail Mail’ Address
While I’m not really all that freaked out by the prospect of hordes of stalkers descending on me (the Google machine and the repeated data breaches at supposedly trustworthy institutions have pretty much let that cat outta the bag anyway), the sad fact is that I’m on too many mailing lists already. So I prefer not to publish my ‘snail mail’ address on my personal site. Look elsewhere, scraper bots!
If you really must send me something that exists in three dimensions, email me and I’ll be happy to send my address, or we can meet up in a darkened parking garage like in the X-Files … but only if you promise there are no space aliens involved.
