My self-summary
Social/political/cultural savant, aspiring entrepreneur, record collector/DJ, urban cyclist, cultural navigator, educator, global traveller, interdisciplinary/systems thinker, truth seeker, West Town resident, Chicago Bears/Bulls fan, worked and traveled extensively throughout Africa and India, coffee geek, spicy food lover, and shoulder rub specialist....
What I’m doing with my life
Dreaming up new possibilities, scheming for the present/future, uncovering new/old sounds at record stores anywhere & everywhere, seeking more contemplative moments, and spending time with my nephews.
I’m really good at
Improvising in the kitchen, digging for records, pedaling really fast, creating space to reflect and learn, whistling, intercultural communication, policy analysis, helping to connect the dots, talking s%#t, lifting heavy objects, and brewing a lovely cup of coffee....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to list....ask me!
Six things I could never do without
Outside of the obvious family and list goes a little like this:
-A turntable
-My record collection
-The Economist
-My bicycle
-Some sort of device to brew coffee
-My passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Hmmmm....equality vs. equity, single origin coffee vs. blended coffee, cultural identity, and why the entire landscape of music from the early 1970's-early 1980's continues to inspire and move me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
We probably won't get along if you don't dance, give bad hugs, don't like to bicycle, and prefer texting to speaking. Also, I'm happily divorced....
You should message me if believe that equity and inclusion are fundamental to our existence as humans. believe music is one of our civilizations true universal languages. know how to balance appreciating the simple and finer things in life.'re looking for someone to cook with and/or experiment in the kitchen with. enjoy dancing and getting lost in rhythms. value integrity, appreciate complexity, think dynamically, and act humbly.
The two of us
