My self-summary
Bruce Springsteen meets Woody Allen. I take the examined and active life together, thank you very much, balancing left brain with right, contemplation with spontaneity, rock with Bach. History, philosophy, cycling, and karaoke all turn me on.
What I’m doing with my life
I mainly work for the Museum of the City of New York and a progressive nonprofit, Civworld. Outside of that I spend my time writing for online magazines, leading walking tours of the city, meeting up with folks, and basically enjoying a life of learning and sharing.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: top three books - Without Feathers by Woody Allen, The Power Broker by Robert Caro, and Art and Experience by John Dewey. Also, To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. Other fave authors include: Nabakov, Whitman, Woolf, Bellows, Franzen, Auden, Jarrell.

Movies: Mostly Dramas, indies, and documentaries. Here's a smattering: This is Spinal Tap, Fargo, Children of Men, Ric Burn's New York, Gimme Shelter, Ran, Days of Heaven, Ikiru, Darjeeling Limited, and Chinatown.

Music: Music is quite important to me, and my tastes are rather eclectic. Depending on the time and place you'll find me savoring classical (I'm a huge fan of Bach, as before mentioned), bopping to dirty 60's soul (Jr. Walker and the All-Stars), or winding down with a bit of classic country (Buck Owens and the Buckaroos). Also, Miles Davis, Yo La Tengo, and Iggy Pop and the Stooges top my most-listened to charts.

Food: Anything spicy and savory I adore. Indian, Mexican, American, Japanese, Korean.

TV Shows: Mad Men, Girls, Arrested Development, Ken Burnsey-stuff, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Whose line is it anyway (both English and American versions - I'm sorry, I happen to enjoy the hoedowns),

Visual Artists (why not?) : Northern Renaissance, Expressionism, and Realism. Gustav Klimt, Kadinsky, John Sloan, and Bruegal rank highly.
