I love ALL forms of art and expression.
As a precocious child and native New Yorker, I witnessed and participated in the birth of the hip-hop movement.
While at Hunter College (CUNY), I took classes in Theater Arts, Dance, and Film, including the fabled course that introduced students to the master of the craft himself - Orson Welles.
Out of necessity, I moved from NYC to CA at 21, in my graduating semester, with $200 to my name.
While at SJSU, I took courses in both Journalism and Advertising - torn between Creative Writing and Investigative Reporting.
I somehow wound up at APPLE just in time to witness the THINK DIFFERENT and REBIRTH OF THE COOL campaigns.
An avid researcher, I just may hold the Evernote record - at 46K+ notes.
I'm an old-school skater, salsa enthusiast, and a multicultural autodidact and polyglot.
