I'm also the owner of a small video production company. Through my job i've had the chance to meet some really amazing people who are involved in social policy at both the governmental and grassroots levels, and i'm very proud that my paychecks come from things i believe in. In fact, when developers bought my building and started trying to force us out of our stabilized apartments to build condos, some of the same organizations ive worked with were the first ones to offer us help. Karma rules.
impressions, singing harmonies, analogies, slipping in and out of brooklynese.
I used to play in bands, and did experimental music back in the day (That scene is thriving now in Philly, and it warms my heart :) I love collecting records and films.
In spite of the obnoxious aspects of mass sports culture, i'm an avid Mets fan (My cousin actually played for the Mets, and the Dodgers back in the day when they were still in Brooklyn). I'm pretty athletic and ride a few laps around prospect park most nights, and i take pride in my body.
Im pretty widely read, but i wish i had the time for more novels. I tend to read biographies of filmmakers these days, for insight into my work.
