I've been living in the city since doing college here, now solidly
a brooklyn citizen of the world (williamsburg). I love this city,
soaking it up and finding anythings and everythings everywhere. i
eat well always because food gives me great pleasure. New
restaurant? I'm in. I love to laugh and do so frequently - it's
good for you. I appreciate unique perspectives on the world and the
human condition. I'm not a politically correct type of person, I
don't take most things too seriously as I've discovered that most
things shouldn't be taken too seriously. That being said, I do take
"important" things seriously. What's important to me? Being a stand
up person, striving to be better the next day than I was the day
before, working hard for a cause in which I believe, standing up
for people who are being stepped on, making my mark on the world,
being the best son & uncle on the planet, being good to those
around me, surrounding myself with good people, being genuine.
What I’m doing with my life

The six things I could never do without
i don't like this question- there are more than 6.
*connection with friends, family, and strangers
*the written & spoken word
*a sense of wonder
*plenty of necessities that no one can do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to keep evolving as a person, the prices of various fresh
fruits and vegetables and what that implies to the farmers who
produced them, how to create a re-evolution in the 21st century.
(ie how to grow my business and change the world for the
How crazy and great life is.
Where I would time travel if I had a time machine.
Where my next adventure will take place.
On a typical Friday night I am
laughing, adventuring, carousing, eating, socializing and/or
resting and recuperating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i'm good with a secret

I'm open to new friends, but this wouldn't be the interface.
