Wow - this is really hard to do. How does one talk about him/herself?
I am a professor of History and Religion. While I enjoy intellectual reflection, I still consider myself more a people's person. I am a huge U2 fan, soft spoken, usually smiling, intellectual, and open-minded. I am close with my family (I am the baby boy!) and I enjoy playing guitar. I have also done some acting for the history channel.
I am a huge Adam Sandler and Denzel Washington fan, I am a Yankee, Bulls, and Jet fan, I love vegan food - but cant turn down a tuna wrap with a pickle! Finally -- I deeply value Judaism as a living religious culture, but not as reflecting any metaphysical truth.I would like to build a Jewish home that is warm, loving, open, and passionate.
I am currently in NYC on sabbatical.
