My self-summary
I have an education company here in SF and work as an English and humanities teacher and consultant. Most of clients are international business professionals and/or graduate students. I love my work. I'm also a pro musician. Well-read, well-traveled - easily amused and mostly open-minded with cultural and intellectual interests. Nature & history buff.

Six things I could never do without

Music, Golden Gate park, friends, good drummers, my 12th century penny, coffee maker, yoga, travel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My new business model. The next music endeavor. Whether Trump's presidential bid is a National Lampoon prank.
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking for good risotto.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I made a short film with my best friend's kid and we almost set the backyard on fire.
