Very easy-going, driven, and creative guy born and raised in the suburbs of Queens, NY. I like hockey (Rangers/Avalanche) and baseball (Mets/O's). Pro wrestling is the best. I'm involved in the DIY punk scene even though (I don't think) I fit a lot of the stereotypes (thankfully). My spiritual godfathers are Michael J. Fox and Vince McMahon.

Again, it's not a necessity that any of this stuff correlates. But I do take my own tastes seriously and am always interested in meeting more people who I can share obscure records and art with. And it does give us something to talk about.
If you're lucky, maybe I'll take you sometime.
Don't be lame.
