I grew up in Miami and now live in Manhattan working in venture capital, music, and other fields. I love being spontaneous with my day, doing things that will be memorable, opening random doors on the street to explore, trying new things, eating innovative food, reading books, writing, dancing, befriending strangers, and having amusing conversation.
My interests include philosophy, music, literature, history, being wild, dancing salsa and swing, playing my guitar, intellectual discourse, transcendentalism, defying convention, spontaneity, ridiculosity, symphonies, poetry, humorous photography, immersion journalism, entrepreneurship, architecture, and people -- people who are curious and kind and who bring out the best in others.
I've traveled to Austria, Canada, England, France, Iraq, Italy, Lebanon, the Netherlands, Peru, and Spain.

Artists/bands I like: Beirut, Beatles, Jack Johnson, Bob Dylan, Coldplay, Avett Brothers, The White Stripes, Schubert, Jason Mraz, Franz Ferdinand, Oscar Peterson, Jefferson Airplane, The Black Keys, Jimi Hendrix, Sinatra, Buena Vista Social Club, Vivaldi, Bach, Astor Piazzola, Dave Matthews, Bartok, Beethoven, Blur, Saint-Saens, Mingus, Dave Brubeck, Chopin, Liszt, Schumann, Yann Tiersen, Ella Fitzgerald, Madeleine Peyroux, dixieland jazz, swing jazz, Benny Goodman, Fred Astaire, the Kinks, Velvet Underground, MGMT, Rachmaninov, Rolling Stones, Santana, Satie.
