Aspiring writer, artist, musician and composer who was born and raised in the United States and has resided in several European countries. Communication is my forte; both through using various tools and in approaching people of divers backgrounds to gather information. Speak conversational – advanced intermediate – French, German and Spanish. Love interacting with people in cultural centers as much as going to remote places to learn more about the different creatures that share our planet. Love of the outdoors and of a variety of outdoor sports. Driven to learn and expand my own consciousness and understanding through curiosity and love of life. Creative skills merge with analytical ones, leading to an interest in a myriad of topics; ranging from politics, economics, science to environmental. Motivated to use my art, music and writing to support and educate people towards humane practices that support and respect all of life, including practices supporting a healthy planet.
I’m a published writer from the United States who resided a number of years in Berlin, Germany. Motion is what elicits personal growth & meaning to me; physical, geographical, intellectual and spiritual. I’ve always been involved in different sports along with my pursuits in the arts. Born and raised in Pennsylvania; where I learned to bike, swim, ski, ice skate, play tennis, racquetball … and took lessons in ballet, modern & Afro Brazilian dance, even Isshin-Ryu karate. Lived in Washington D.C., where I studied Cultural Anthropology at George Washington University. Lived for shorts stints in NYC & Brooklyn, following having lived in Taos & Santa Fe, New Mexico. I was initially drawn to New Mexico for the skiing, and taught skiing primarily to kids, both at Taos Ski Valley and Santa Fe Ski Basin. My first residence in California, was for a summer in San Diego, where I went to learn to surf; channeling my skateboarding and snowboarding interest towards this parallel activity. I lived in San Francisco, California in the 90’s; where I gained and applied computer skills towards administrative work, yet with my heart in various multimedia. I left there when the .com collapse occurred. I’ve lived briefly in Paris and Barcelona, and have been in Berlin for the last 5 years. I’m conversant in German, French and Spanish and presently have the zeal to learn Italian. I’m avidly interested in linguistics, with a fascination in how languages spread through the dynamics of a culture’s evolution.
I enjoy photography & illustration. In addition, I love to sing, play piano & bass guitar and compose music using primarily the computer software programs Propellerhead Reason & Abtelton Live, together with a mini keyboard controller.
I maintain two blogs; covering events in music and the arts in Berlin, Germany as well as information regarding personal experiences and interests in a wide range of subjects from economics and politics to human consciousness.
