I'm an artist and craftsman. Professionally I do graphic design,
but to me it's not the most important thing. Building is a big part
of my life, from ships to communities.
I am thoughtful, loving, happy, sanguine, curious, artistic, handy,
loyal to a fault, and a good friend.

I love too many books to mention, but my favorite books in the

TV- Community, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, TNG (Picard over Kirk
Music- anything interesting or energetic- Metal, ambient,

appreciate a good fruity Merlot.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend lots of time contemplating, especially about philosophy and
society. I think it's really important to think about and question

person is very central to who I am and what I'm looking for.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a nice group of friends over for Shabbat dinner- never

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't fall asleep unless I shower...
