Amongst other things, I am a Jazz musician (sax), psychology
professor, writer and athlete (cycling, karatedo/zen teacher,
weight lifting, motorcycle racing, etc.). I Have a home on South
Beach, and also have a home in the Adirondack mountains in New
York. I have lived, traveled, played music and taught all over the
I am a counselor and work primarily as a consultant. I have taught
at University of Miami, Florida International University,
Miami-Dade College, Barry University and Fl. Mem.
Because I've been an athlete and have always taken health
seriously, I look 40ish... Weigh lifting and endurance cycling has
kept my body twenty-ish... My philosophical/spiritual/psychological
pursuits have kept my mind infinitely open to life.
Of late, I have been working in Haiti, establishing community
centers to help the impoverished and devastated people affected by
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it. Paying attention. Constant obversation and
I’m really good at
the essentials.......eating, sleeping. You know
The first things people usually notice about me
The bevy of black-suited, dark- sunglassed body guards around me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books can be read in their entirety in one visit to the
bathroom.....my favorite movies are the ones you can fall asleep on
for half an hour, wake up and not lose the plot........my favorite
shows happen at the Club Deuce on SoBe at 3:00am...........music,
I'm a musician, no comment.....food.........sushi at my favorite
restaurant in Shibuya-ku in Tokyo......don't get there too often.
The six things I could never do without
Air, water, food and those other three things..
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Casuistic thoughts about how the consciousness of mankind has
become so spiritual, peaceful and empathic...........then I start
looking around to see who put something in my smoothie..........
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating as much pasta as I can to get ready for my cycling Saturday
morning with my insane training partner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The thing I hate the most in this world is a woman crying........I
can be played like a violin if that happens...........
