am from New Jersey.
live with my wife and two cats. They are everything to me.
live for music. Phish, Tool, The National, Radiohead, Pearl Jam – the list goes on and on.
studied Engineering at one of the top high schools in the nation…
and then majored in Journalism at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.
have a master’s degree in Bilingual Childhood Education.
am a former server/bartender/restaurant manager. And now a former NYC public school teacher.
am currently applying to grad school for School Psychology.
think this is it. After years of figuring out what I want to do, I think I’ve found my perfect match.
am also an ultrarunner (ultrarunner = I occasionally run >26.2 miles).
love to write. Especially about running and what I gain from it.
completed a ten day silent meditation course. Completely silent. No talking, writing, eye contact. It was intense. Probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
am now a practitioner of Vipassana meditation. It’s the real deal. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
am not defined by any of these things, however.
am a seeker.
am in a constant pursuit of becoming the best person I can possibly be.
strive to live life to the fullest.
am not saying these things in order to be some hack self-help motivational bullshit artist. In fact…
don’t care about Instagram followers or retweets or hearts or smiley faces or likes or rainbows.
just pray that maybe you can take something from my journey. And apply it to your own.
hope we can connect on a human level. Life is too short to be stuck in a maze full of screens and stress.
am grateful you found your way to my website. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your stay more comfortable.
