Born on Long Island, New York, I now call Denver, Colorado home. My family moved to the Rocky Mountains (by way of a Philadelphia suburb) when I was 9 years old. I did most of my growing up here, and I was pretty good at it. I followed the rules, by in large, and did what I was supposed to. I earned top marks in school and went straight to college. Text book, right? Well, it turns out text books aren't everything.
I'm writing my own book now. I find my passion in people, my peace in running, and pleasure in so many simple things, like a good beer, a guitar, or a soccer match. I've made minimalism my lifestyle and I'm stepping up to live a meaningful, deliberate life. My rules, my terms.
Today I live in southeast Denver with my wife, Laura, and two cats, Bailey and Gus. I am enchanted with the Rocky Mountains, but I can't deny my love for learning about history and the multitude of cultures that form the world we know today. I believe in people, not religion. Culture, not race. Education, not suppression. This is my treatise.
Over the last few years, I discovered a love for running. I don't need to register for races to motivate me to lace up and get out anymore, I do it because it makes me feel good. This wasn't always my mantra. It's all in my journal. Give it a read, and if you're so motivated, follow me on Strava.
