About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To do, visit, see and learn everything. Period.

ABOUT ME

Just trying to see the world and help people while I do it...

I finished Peace Corps in 2006, spent 2007 directing a documentary on skinheads, sold the doc, opened a comedy club in New York, sold the comedy club and now I'm living in Orlando, teaching and traveling on my breaks.

PHILOSOPHY

Live. Love. Learn.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: big fan of independent films, but love shoot 'em ups as much as the next guy. Recently been watching a lot of 70s films because they're available at the library across the street.

Music: Was a major raver, now like more laid back music like Radiohead or Rob D. Also, who can go wrong with the Beatles?

Favorite Authors: Terry Pratchet; Chuck Palahuniuk; James Morrow; Kurt Vonnegut

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Life had been good to me in the experiences department: running from the bulls in Pamplona, smuggling cigarettes in Romania, diving with dolphins in Florida, dancing at Love Parade in Berlin, getting drunk on Absinthe in Prague, hiking the top of Mt. Whitney and the bottom of the Grand Canyon, even little things like holding my baby niece or just driving 100 MPH through the desert. So many had and so many more to come...
