My self-summary
Maryland raised. Southern California for undergrad. English major. Athletic growing up and now exploring body/mind connection with yoga. Relatively mellow. Son of a shrink. Divorced.
What I’m doing with my life
i sit in the dark in front of a computer and push pixels as a digital compositor. i pushed pixels in London for 5 years. LA pixels are slightly more glamorous than their staid cousins across the pond.

trying to live with an open and aware heart
I’m really good at

The first things people usually notice about me
skin color, beardy-weirdy, kind eyes, you'll have to fill me in on anything else
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
letting my hold on pop culture slip by -- the tv is rarely on and if it is it might be for vidya games (i am a child of the Atari age), netflix, crunchyroll, documentaries, or industry screeners

despite working in the industry, I don't watch too many films -- it's hard sometimes to suspend disbelief -- but there's a pretty good chance that your favorites from the 80's are mine too

current reading Foundation, asimov -- in the hopper -- my bookshelf has some keepers from my lit and poetry background -- enjoy neal stephenson, william gibson, frank herbert -- grew up re-reading tolkein and douglas adams

musical tastes run from motown to the misfits to mantra, beatles to bach to bluegrass, coltrane to ccr, into dub reggae, not so into gangsta rap or contemporary country -- huge fan of npr -- ok with silence

i tried eating ovo-lacto vegetarian for a while with a nod towards ahimsa -- now focusing on: eat Food, not too much, mostly plants (now if I could find my personal chef...)
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the Universe and Everything

the weather of the Mid-Atlantic region - sometimes with nostalgia (spring and fall, rain and thunderstorms, humid summer nights) and, often during the winter, with pity and thankfulness for Southern California

the secret lives of helicopters who grace the 90004

On a typical Friday night I am
getting to bed on time for Sat morning practice
