About Me


To get clear and have fun


I'm very laid back and cheerful. I've very much tuned into the idea of gratitude over the past few years. I'm so thankful to enjoy just the simple things in life like hot clean water, simple yet delicious food and, travel, of course.


My philosophy is the art of listening. I really do my best to listen to my friends and take them in fully. Other than, I'm here on this planet to have fun.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Crazy about film noir flicks like Double Indemnity, White Heat, Detective Story, The Big Sleep, etc. Other classics from the 40s include Philadelphia Story, Holiday and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. I've realized there's something incredibly relaxing about watching an old movie in black and white. It's the muting or softening effect those films provide in the absence of color.

More modern films that rock my world: Tombstone, Swingers, Breaking Away, Star Wars (the original), Thank You For Smoking, State and Main, 40 Year Old Virgin to name a few.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Although I live on the Upper West Side of New York City, sublet my apartment for a couple of months and I lived in the East Village. I ultimately moved back to my original apartment, but when I was there it was so cool to just walk out my door and be steps from some of the coolest watering holes and music venues in the world.
