After some fun in glorious Northern Arizona, returned to the Northeast five years ago. A wealth of strong connections here—family, friends, Yale & Columbia alum.

Plena mujer, manzana carnal, luna caliente,
espeso aroma de algas, lodo y luz machacados,
qué oscura claridad se abre entre tus columnas?
Qué antigua noche el hombre toca con sus sentidos?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

open space
a musical instrument
meaningful work
the richness of knowing people who've known me for decades
touching
peace
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
