I play music, write fiction, produce films, and sleep occasionally. I am interested in the intersection of intelligence and emotion in the human experience, and I'm learning how to navigate that.
I was an instructor with the Gold Fish Swim School in Chicago and with Sunsational Swim School in Los Angeles. I also lead 32 mile bike tours of Los Angeles, which I consider teaching as I have to lead a group through the thigh busting hills of Beverly Hills and the winding trail to the beach and back again while sharing with them the stories that make Los Angeles what it is.
