My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a musician, and I'd say that pretty much influences a lot of how I live my life -- I travel a lot, my time is oriented around performances and music projects, and I thrive on things that inspire me.

born in Brooklyn, raised in NJ, left for a while to live and study in the mid-west, came back east 14 years ago. Nursing dreams of turning my back on this crazy Northeast Corridor existence in favor of a different crazy existence in Rio or maybe Tokyo or maybe someplace else. Though I challenge anyone to stand in the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge on a beautiful day and not love this city.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
making music. I play guitar -- classical, experimental, rock, jazz... -- but I also am involved with recording a lot, I run a small indie label, and when I can carve out some time, I write my own music. It's a great way to live and a fairly stupid way to make a living, but I'm actually doing both pretty well, so no complaints.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
honesty, seeing all sides of a situation, focusing on one side of a situation, adapting, navigating new transit systems

I'm really not sure...I know that I usually notice the first thing people notice about me, and it always tells me a lot about them. So maybe they are noticing me noticing things about them.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a guitar, honest people, the ocean, mystery,
intuition, public radio
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
beauty, inspiration, justice/injustice, creativity, rhythm, my next gig, how if everyone in the US meditated the world would be a much better place. how if I meditated more I might think the US was a better place and a worse place.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
maybe playing a gig or going to hear a friend perform or looking for the perfect Jameson on the rocks. Even though they all taste the same.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think Phil Collins is a good songwriter
