What I’m doing with my life
I am constantly making small course adjustments on the journey. I
am here in San Francisco starting a new company helping non profits
craft their storytelling abilities with video. After living in
Brooklyn most of my life I am here to be more conscious about
living a life that is in alignment with my core beliefs.
I’m really good at
Well, I make a great sourdough loaf. My signature bread is a
Orange/Tamarind loaf that is out of this world. Not to brag but I

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book is "A Personal Matter" by Kenzaburo Oe. I love

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

in order to get to sleep.
You should message me if
If you would like to meet someone with a passionate heart and
compassionate mind, a solid soul and a light heart, someone who is
a great friend and a great love. (I hope I did not over do it just
then but what the hell.)
