Where did you grow up? Where else have you lived? Where do you currently live?
I'm a New Yorker, for better and worse, and that in some way informs all of my actions. I also spent a year in Oxford, England. Currently in New York but planning on a big move across the pond soon.
How would your family and friends describe you (in one word)?
Tenacious. But also hairy.
How would you describe your family?
Eclectic and charmingly insane. We all really like to eat, so that's a big one for us.
What are the values that drive you (to succeed, in life, as a person, etc.)?
To be the guy who returns his shopping cart to the cart corral after going to the grocery store.
What is the most random thing you’ve ever watched all the way through on Netflix?
'Alakazam the Great,' a Japanese musical anime from 1960 based on 'Journey to the West.'
Shark diving, bungee jumping, or sky diving?
None of the above. I climbed a 10,000 foot volcano in Guatamala once though. That was enough adventure tourism for one lifetime.
Where would you like to go on vacation if you had a month off and money was no object?
I already travel pretty regularly, but I guess I'd look up a list of the top most expensive countries and travel to all of them.
What is your favorite tech tool and why?
My trusty laptop almost never leaves my side. It's my tool for work, writing, gaming and exploring the vast depths of the Internet.
Where is your favorite place to go on a weekday afternoon when you have no plans or obligations?
I live surprisingly close to the beach so I'll often drive down there and relax if the weather permits it. A nap also never hurts.
What is your secret to remote-work success?
My dog, Bo. My girlfriend works from home a lot of the time as well, so that doesn't hurt either.
What is the weirdest scar you have and how did you get it?
I've got a gnarly scare across my lower back from spinal fusion surgery. In a certain light, it's kind of cute.
If your life had a theme song, what would it be?
'Accordion' by MF DOOM.
