Brooklyn-bred man (with childhood stops in Athens, Tokyo and South Florida) who likes making mischief, order from chaos and a difference in the world. I come from a family of know-it-alls that is composed of a Social Worker/Knitter/Gardener/Children's Librarian Mom, a Computer Engineer/Astronomy Hustler/Teacher/Opera Fanatic Dad and a smarter/older looking/considerably bigger and louder younger brother.
I have an old soul and a big heart with generous helpings of both sweet and salty. As such, I love nothing more than meeting new people, hearing their stories and sizing them up. Though I am a world-class bullshit artist; when you want my opinion, I don't mince words.
I like a good challenge followed by a nice drink/joint, walk and sunset. If I hear any music with a beat I can't help but tap my fingers and move my hips. I'm a former athlete who no longer plays but reads ESPN daily. I keep accumulating degrees in human behavior yet find tremendous satisfaction in making shit (e.g. clothes, my haircuts, art, product design, furniture, interior design, architecture). I like all of the arts except Chinese Opera. While the beach, small towns and mother nature all restore me, I have seen the world and know that I will only live in cities. That being said, I only live in the pretty, quiet parts near big, old trees.
After years of thinking I was indestructible, I learned the hard way that I am not and am now relearning how to walk.
