I’m a software engineer and web developer. I was born in New York City, and love living here. Being creative, solving problems, and building things excite me. I believe that boredom is the enemy of happiness. Having new experiences is how I find inspiration.
Programming and computers are important to me. I spend a lot of time online. The internet has helped me to discover things that are now important parts of my reality. I love to be a part of the wave by creating content, technology, and experiences for the web. This aspect of my life lets me be artistic and scientific at once
As a life-long athlete, fitness and health are important to me. I spend weekends running, and participating in races around NYC. This is when I have some of my best ideas. Exercise gives me the energy I need to tackle my goals. During my best workouts, I experience a sense of flow only matched when I’m absorbed deeply into a creative project. I also enjoy lifting weights and martial arts.
I draw inspiration from a lot of different places. I listen to podcasts and audiobooks while commuting (but still often do read actual books). Twitter has become one of favorite resources for new content. Consuming media propels my own creative urges. My drive to turn the imagined tangible boldens as I see others do it. You can check out my blog to find out more about what excites me.
The urge to explore precedes creative expression. Experiencing the culture of a strange place stretches the imagination. I travel a few times per year for work, attending conferences and exhibitions, doing marketing work and managing live educational events. I also find myself on long adventures during my off time. These journeys have afforded me opportunities to meet people from around the world and make great memories.
Social gatherings are exciting. Concerts, meet-ups, parties, and conventions help me connect with interesting people. In connecting with others we grow. I enjoy live music and good food. I attend group meetings that focus on my professional interests. Even digital events in virtual worlds present entirely new landscapes for me to explore.
