I’m 30 years old; I live in Washington DC with my partner Luke in a cozy one bedroom apartment near Logan Circle; I work for a large nonprofit, I believe in nonprofits though I’m personally a for-profit; I’m in love with cities, with bridges, with skylines, and with maps and airports (and especially maps of airports); I used to read 3 books a week and but now I’ve read 3 books all year, though I subscribe to 7 magazines; I get excited about little things, as you’re sure to read about in the coming blogs; I’m a former night-person who has turned into a morning person and I have no regrets about either; When I was a kid, if my mom didn’t have bacon bits, I’d throw a fit and to be perfectly honest, I don’t know if I’m over this phase yet.
So far I’ve lived in the following places: Brooklyn & NY, NY (13 non-consecutive years); Glen Spey, NY (5 years); Poughkeepsie, NY (2 years); Framingham, MA (7 years); Wang Thong, Thailand (2 years); Washington DC (2 year). Somewhere in here were 3 months waiting tables in San Francisco during a summer when I couldn’t bare anything and 6 months in Amsterdam during a semester when I couldn’t do anything.
I’m a brother, a son, an uncle, a grandson who never forgets to call his grandma, a nephew, a cousin, a partner, and a best friend; I’m a democrat, a scuba diver, a kia driver, a disaster volunteer, a porch sitter, a diehard New York Yankees fan, a scotch drinker, a pro bono travel agent, a fantasy baseball & football team manager, a returned Peace Corps volunteer, an nyu alumni, and I used to write poems about salmon and sing songs about Eskimos.
Now, I write this blog. I hope you enjoy it.
