During the week I'm an Engineer; I build buildings, or at least I design systems that are installed inside of buildings, so I guess that's close enough. I love the city and I love to explore/travel. My parents live in Jersey and I still get the giddy/childish feeling gazing up at the skyline when they drive me back over the GWB and down the FDR. While I grew up in NJ and I can't comfortably say I'm a "true" New Yorker, I'd like to think I'm pretty, pretty, pretty close [LD is my hero]. I don't know what's not to love in this city especially with all the pent up potential and the multitude of options. Go find what makes you happy!
In my free time I live in the moment. Nice days beckon for a bike ride out to Brooklyn with a backpack and a camera; while the ultimate destination is unknown, a stop off for a beer or some quality food is always included. I take pictures of what inspires me: the city and Street Art/graffiti.
I love Street Art. That's the reason for my camera and why I bike/walk around all weekend. Just submitted an article about a Street Art festival I recently got back from in Sydney:
Food and music are big parts of my life as well. While my weeknight meals are pretty set (Meatball Shop, Motorino, Westville, Dos Toros, cooking food purchased from Chelsea Market on nights when I get out of the office early enough). I don't nearly go to as many concerts as I should and I regret that. If you like live shows, hit me up.
I hate Maroon 5 and Shia Labeouf.
