Born and raised in the motherland (aka, the mean streets of Long Island), but have been living in NYC for quite some time. I love to road trip and travel as much as my schedule and wallet will allow. I'm extremely passionate about martial arts history, theory, science, application, and philosophy. At the same time I have an appreciation and fascination for many of the arts. My personal mantra is: "Endeavor for good progress, as if to beat a fire burning on one's own head."
And my personal philosophy is:
Q: Is the glass half full or half empty?
My A: Who cares, I was thirsty and now I have something to drink! =)
