My self-summary
In love with cities, art, film, humor, culture and absurdity..
What I’m doing with my life
professional musician doing a mix of work in the city (orchestras, ensembles, Broadway), teaching and educational concerts. it's fun for the variety, stressful because it's freelance, but ultimately rewarding because it has sent me around the country/world and i like switching things up musically.
I’m really good at
seeing the big picture, solving problems, collecting music, listening to stuff i like over and over, reading maps, polyrhythms!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
kubrick, lynch, cronenberg, coen brothers, kurosawa, mike leigh, altman, bergman, herzog, spielberg, woody allen, soderbergh, etc etc etc.. love comedy from old to new, documentaries: hoop dreams, encounters at the end of the world, the thin blue line, the act of killing

early music (cavalli, monteverdi, purcell, bach) to modern stuff (boulez, ligeti, messiaen, dutilleux) rock/pop from the 60s-90s.. love blues, jazz (LOTs of jazz) and older rap/hip-hop (east coast and southern). I love music from all cultures (especially north india, bulgaria and the folk music of the UK). I'm a devoted vinyl junkie/collector and anytime I visit a new city I seek out their best shop.

Getting out of New York City
I spend a lot of time thinking about
It changes all the time but more often than not about where we've been, where we are and where we're going.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have typical Friday's because I don't work a typical M-F 9-5. But when I have free time, I'm either riding my bike, seeing a film or performance, going to a gallery, museum or seeing friends.
