i'm a self-employed graphic designer from Brooklyn, NY. in business since 2002, i love the flexibility it gives me for travel. i barely make it more than a few months without a trip somewhere. i've traveled to 11 countries and 42 states. i'm in my early 40s (i.e., grown and responsible), an excellent cook, collector of mid-century modern furniture and accessories... travel, good books, good food, funny friends... not sure what else you need in life. i've lived in michigan, chicago, san francisco, and currently new york, where the seasons and subways and museums and parks and shows keep me very happy.
