I'm a once lapsed academic now back in school after a very extended detour through two careers and three continents.
I like high brow and low brow and not much in between -- things like The New Republic and Frontline, Ricky Gervais and Karl Pilkington, the Lumiere and Clay theaters, and Dance Theater Workshop in NYC.
I'm excellent at identifying obscure accents, driving the backroads of Spain, Brazil, and Turkey, and getting sidetracked in history, geography, bad movie trivia, biology, and the best cover stories of the Weekly World News.
Many of my favorite places are away from the city. If I could I’d be in Healdsburg, or Tahoe, or Point Reyes every other weekend.
I’ve lived in NYC, Brazil, and London and have been blessed to have seen a decent bit of the world, but have a long list of places left to explore.
