My self-summary
"The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death—however mutable man may be able to make them—our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
What I’m doing with my life
I have a background in film/photography, and currently work in wine. I'm at a point in my life where I'm looking to transition and am not sure in what realm that will be...possibly a job that combines the two passions. I miss being a cinematographer and know that I will make my way back to that in some realm.

For now I'm a buyer/manager at a wine and spirits shop in NYC, and it might be one of the more interesting jobs out there. I have had the opportunity to travel abroad, meet amazing winemakers and distillers, and connect with wine, spirits and food on a more intense level, just about every day.

In my spare time (whatever that means) I photograph a lot of the music scene in NYC. I love the small venues, the passionate crowds, and the depth and intimacy of a live show.

In the next few years I see myself:

TRAVELing: Spain, Japan, and New Zealand are all on my bucket list

WORKing in a Vineyard: I have to experience the LABOR & LOVE of working a harvest at least once in my life

HAViNg My own PHOTO Show: This is just BEYOND Overdue

CLIMBing a Mountain. I Miss Hiking since being immersed in the City. Oregon & North Carolina are in the mix for this year

DEVELOPing My Palate: Hitting up more of the NYC Culinary Scene Is always on the mix.

Photography - http://www.flickr.com/photos/toomuchkonichiwa/

Listening, cooking, being punctual, drinking wine, cobra pose, sarcasm, extremes, collecting an array of music, talking with my hands, restructuring your fascia, creating the perfect ambiance, wearing-out boots, educating your unknown whiskey palate, mood lighting, wearing black, pushing through the pain, being honest, playing with fire, finding the esthetic moment...
