My self-summary
If you are reading this from 3/25 on, I'm in Mexico.

I am a native of New York City. I like to wander, whether its the streets of NYC or deep in the forest. I have hiked up mountain peaks from Venezuela to Vietnam. I've explored ancient temples and pyramids from Bali to Guatemala. I've swam with sharks in the Galapagos Islands, hand fed pink river dolphins in the Brazilian Amazon and had an anaconda slip right through my hands in Bolivia. When not off on some adventure around the globe, I like going to museums, movies, concerts, sporting events, parks, green markets and trying the food everywhere I go.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in special investigations. Long hours, plenty of stress but I like being out in the field instead of stuck in an office. And I also have been taking photos of people taking photos of food.

Stalking black squirrels in Morningside Park. They just won't stay still long enough for me to get a good photo. Blast !

Watching Planet Earth II and I somehow found enough time to buy a new car. So if you see some dope drive by in Toyota Yaris IA, that might be me.
I’m really good at
Making friends with animals, science, geography, reading maps, finding my way around and I can run really fast.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm white. Yeah, I helped you out with that one. And I am left handed. You can have fun watching me struggle to do all the things you right handed people can do so easily. Like swiping a Metrocard or a credit card. I bet you right handed people haven't though much about that but where is the slot always located? On the right side of course.

Six things I could never do without
Animals, mountains, forests, fruits, a Kindle Fire and a passport.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Endangered species, climate change, control of the South China Sea, a free Palestine, beautiful but chaotic Venezuela, the insanity that is North Korea, economic development, how the powerful have screwed Syria and ignored Yemen, the curse of oil and other natural resources and what life is like on Native American reservations. There is a spectacular waterfall deep in the jungles of Guyana and I must see it.

Hey Taylor Swift, how about writing lyrics that don't sound like you are 15.

Despite what some NBA players past and present might tell you, the earth isn't flat. Sometimes the stereotype of the dumb jock seems appropriate.

I hope President Obama has tapped my telephone.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably still working which happens way too often. I'd rather be out or even just home watching a hockey game or a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am shy at first. I have been on this site so long that I don't even remember why I joined in the first place. And despite living in America, I know very little about American pop culture.
You should message me if
you want to...then sing your song. And if you would like to meet on one of those boulders in Central Park and have a conversation.
The two of us
