travel and having fun! I am very easy to talk to and find common
ground with people from all walks of life. I really enjoy meeting
new and interesting people. I grew up in NJ but my parents are from

thinking about food...what my next meal will be, imagining up
recipes for my supper club ...I love cooking for other

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally
worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
― Hunter S. Thompson

Miles Davis, Coltrane, Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, The Killers,
The Kinks, The Who, The Dead, Janes Addiction...and much
Food: everything - ranges from hole in the wall hand-pulled noodle
joints in Chinatown to 3 star Michelin restaurants. My own cooking
is just as varied.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My chef's knife
My Les Paul guitar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next meal, music, the meaning of life
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends at a bar, lounge, or club. Out to dinner. Once in
a while it is nice to stay in on Friday and wake up early Saturday
morning for a run in Central Park.

I can recite any line in Mrs. Doubtfire on command.
