My self-summary
I'm a mild mannered smart-ass with a big heart. Opinionated (but open to others). Very curious by nature. Exiled from a Jewish village outside Newark I landed in the cornfields of the Midwest. Many years back I returned to the land of fine bagels leaving Lender's behind. Aspired to be a filmmaker. Evolved into a pixelworker. Food lover. While I love the City, getting out of it to refresh the soul in nature or a small town or a desert or Paris is always good.
What I’m doing with my life
Developing and designing websites. Playing guitar (gravitated from punk to learning finger style folk & blues). Biking around Brooklyn. Shopping at artisanal food establishments and greenmarkets. I'm back in a cooking groove. My TV was discarded many moons ago. Instead I rent/stream videos or hit the indy theaters. Yoga has done me well. I never get tired of exploring the City for all its great details.
I’m really good at
Listening. Understanding. Noticing unnoticed details. Picking out cool songs to learn on the guitar, and good recipes.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I am going to eat/cook.

Funny lines and scenes from movies (can make for precarious shaving in the morning).
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching a film at an art house. Hearing some live picking and singing. At home reading or watching a video. Laughing about atheism.
You should message me if
You have a sense of humor, are open minded, curious and embrace creativity. You like to eat (quality not quantity).
