Born in London and raised in Chicago, I'm half English and half Russian-Jewish. Other places I've called home include Louisville, Barcelona, Wales, and Bloomington, Indiana (I'd need a strong reason to call Indiana home--no offense, Hoosiers. In my case, it was grad school).
My life is about making and listening to music; photography; film; writing; good food; spontaneous adventures; connecting with good people; yoga; and getting down on the dance floor.
I am a word and picture person. I love and need to write and to record life as I see it and experience it. I come from a family of photo/journalists and multimedia producers, so there is a certain continuity there, though I add to that mix a passion for conceptual art. I can be serious or f*ing ridiculous in turns.
I'm an idealist, often finding myself swimming against the current of expected norms and routines to create a life that makes sense to me.
