To live with authenticity, creativity, and lots of yuks.
Let's see... a bit bohemian - not by design - just somehow turned out that way. Can be wickedly irreverant and funny. Convention and conformity don't come all that natural to me - and could be why I was recently run out of town by a torch bearing crowd...just (sort of) kidding... I've worn lots of hats ...usually with a rakish tilt. I've driven limousines and boats, sold and wrote advertising, managed a yacht charter service, tracked submarines, produced a television show and several large special events, flipped burgers on the Long Island ferry, and tailed cheating spouses as a private detective - among other things. It's all good, and all fodder for the writing of essays and slice of life memoir type pieces I like to do. I'm lucky enough to have a circle of loving and supportive friends who share my quirky sense of humor and don't mind sharing space with my wierd collections of flea market stuff.
Be kind, be real, laugh a lot, don't give unsolicited adivce, and try not to hurt anyone.
