Originally from Los Angeles, I've lived in NYC since 1995, almost always in Brooklyn, including Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Prospect Heights and Park Slope. So if there's anything you need to know about the BK, I'm here to help.
I work in Manhattan, as the Culture Editor at TIME magazine. I have an 11-year-old son, who lives just around the corner from the apartment with his mom. We've got a great situation going on, since he also goes to school nearby.
I'm a longtime musician, and I've played in loads of bands. Most as a singer or guitarist. Nowadays I do a lot of old-school country blues fingerpicking, influenced by Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James and Rev. Gary Davis. If you need any advice on where to see great music, I'd be happy to help.
My apartment is very spacious, and I enjoy having people over to share it. I especially like meeting new people and hope you'll make yourself "at home" as much as you like.
I'm also lucky to be able to share my beach house in East Hampton. When I'm out East, I love riding my vintage BMW motorcycle (1972 R75/5, for you moto nerds) and going surfing (longboards only) at Ditch Plains. I also love that it's always easy to find an open (and free) tennis court. I'd be happy to share some of my secret spots where you can really get away from the crowds -- and traffic.
