I'm a native Brooklynite, not for nothin'. One of the last American boys to like poetry. I'm into promoting equity and sustainable living in local communities and am fortunate enough to work in a job that let's me do just that. Most weekends find me in one of our many beautiful city parks or pruning street trees, driving my friends crazy by identifying the local species.
I play a mean guitar and banjo, mostly when barefoot, and harbor secret ambitions of being a rockabilly superstar. Learning to play synthesizer too.
I'm a total beer snob. I've got a soft spot for eastern religion (most useful major ever).
If you need to plant a tree, lemme know - I can totally hook you up.
I've been doing a lot of biking and have a 20-pound chain for aesthetic purposes. We all have to make sacrifices to look cool, y'know?
Also creating tons of electronic music.
