I'm an introspective, generally smart, and funny guy living and working in NYC. My career is in the mental arts; mostly community mental health (I've worked in the hospitals, shelters, streets, and also have had private practice gigs), and I take pride in the ability to foster wellness in others. I know that some people say that therapists and the like are only in the field because they're 'crazy'. I am certainly not- I am outre, but not certifiable- think the guy at the bar that people gravitate to, because they know I can fix them (I can't, or won't).
I've started running recently; not from my demons, they're my friends. I also love to walk all around the city for hours- when I say 'walk for hours', I mean 20 milers.
Did everyone have to co-opt Nerd Culture? I, too love my podcast stash of Comedy Bang Bang, WTF, and the NPR Holy Trinity of This American Life, Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me, and Radiolab. Like everyone from the Nerve.com era, I too took classes at UCB.
