I love SCUBA diving, running and mindfulness meditation.
My sense of humor alternates between sarcastically ironic and ironically sarcastic. I’m irrationally enthusiastic about my favorite music, films and TV shows, but I will not tolerate Van Halen post-David Lee Roth or Police Academy post-Steve Guttenberg.
I was born in the Bronx, grew up in the burbs, and have been living in Brooklyn for a long, long time.
I moonlight as a subway acrobat.
