I am a "creative mothership"-creating film/tv/new media/publishing content across media platforms as a writer/producer/director and now Veteran(US Army, 2007-2011/OEF). I have worked for MTV, VH1, Current TV, Elektra Records, and Sesame Street. Authored a pop culture book on Hip-Hop's love affair with jewelry called "BLING: The Hip-Hop Jewelry Book" that came out in 2006. Currently, my love of media and storytelling has taken me on an adventure with the US Army as a broadcast journalist bka combat journalist -depending on any given day- deployed to Afghanistan covering the war. My politics are left of center. I am originally from Shaker Heights, Ohio but have lived in NYC for the last 21 years with Fort Greene being my primary residence prior to joining the Army in 2007. I am a non-smoker, clean with a touch of neat freakiness, love to cook, garden, do home improvement/beautification, lover of technology/gadgets, entrepreneurial pursuits, Buddhism, the arts, culture, film, music, bikram yoga, fitness, politics, astrology, and cats/dogs. I aspire to be a renaissance man in some respects not fitting into any particular box. I am usually low key, kinda shy /quiet at first then gradually warm up. I have a sense of humor and often a empathic read on people and situations.
I have respect for people's space and privacy. You can find bits and pieces of me on (website hidden)/(website hidden) should you require further analysis. Peace and Blessings.
