About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Fall back in love with New York City. Remember what excites me most.

ABOUT ME
For the next few weeks I'll be living in a tree in New York City. If you'd like to visit the tree, meet up, or go dumpster diving with me, send me a message. I can show you some great things to do for free in the city.

The following will be true again in a couple months:
I'm in Ithaca, NY, doing grad school at Cornell University. I'm from NYC. I'm an artist. I make drawings, constructions, videos and I do performances. (Jessekreuzer.com)
I love to tell stories. I like people who speak and have ideas. I am often in search of adventures, but I'm equally interested in quiet things - I would love to stay out dancing until 6am, or talk to you quietly over dinner. Maybe both? I have not made up my mind about almost anything- but I do have strong opinions about drawing. I believe the best way to learn something is to be proven wrong.
Please write me a message.

PHILOSOPHY
I believe in clarity and honesty. I believe in having fluid opinions, and being very open to new experiences.
I try to not make decisions out of fear.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Human vision, physically seeing is amazing. At times I've appreciated it almost as fully as possible.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can cook for you, I can teach you how to draw a stereogram or a near perfect circle without a compass. I can help you edit movies and whistle with an acorn. I know some real good games and some great jokes. I can show you how to dumpster dive in NYC.
