I grew up in St. Louis and head back there rather frequently. I secretly love that city. I graduated from the Berklee College of Music. I currently perform and teach music in a variety of settings. I'm into all sorts of music... from super tribal world music to pop to bluegrass to Paul Simon. I play the mandolin which is a pretty major part of my life. I love coffee. I think of myself as an earthy and artistic type... but I don't take myself too seriously. I am a huge Seinfeld/Curb Your Enthusiasm/Arrested Development fan. I love John Stewart and Conan O'Brien. I love hockey and baseball. I don't get bored too easily and am often content just hanging out and not necessarily doing anything... but I love to explore cities and restaurants. I love pretentious coffee. I love engaging movies. My dog is my best friend. I love traveling. I love the state of Israel. Be well.
