Just as a disclaimer, I am moving to Jerusalem for all of May and

I like to think of my self as a clumsy mix of nerd, free spirit
and, if I may, charisma. In spite of my tendency to string people
along on a story for some short term entertainment value (ex.
telling my roommate that the TV is voice activated and watch her
try to tell it to "turn on Mad Men"), I also try to be genuine in
the broader scope of things.

As for my story, I’ve been in NYC for almost a decade (WTF! How did
that happen?). I travel quite a bit for work, write music, dabble
in comedy, work out fairly consistently and spend much of my free
time hanging out with a ragtag group of compadres as well as my
dog-child, Sophie (also rag-tag). When possible, I try to fit in an
open mic or showcase if I have written anything recent, but it's
difficult with this schedule.
