I grew up in and around New York City. I’ve lived in four of the five boroughs at least once. I most recently lived in Brooklyn before moving to North Carolina in 2009. I lived in Texas twice.
I’m a father. I have two daughters.
I’ve been vegetarian for over twenty years. I’ve tried to go vegan several times over the years, but it never stuck; I like dairy too much. I occasionally eat fish, usually sushi, so technically I’m pescatarian, but it’s such an unfamiliar word that I don’t use it to describe my self.
I’ve been a software developer for over twenty years. It’s something I love doing and I consider myself very lucky to be able to do what I love.
I love dogs and cats. I have two cats, Cora and Alma.
I have a motorcycle that I ride when the weather is nice. When I lived in New York, where I didn’t need a car, it was the only vehicle I owned. I didn’t buy a car for a year after I first moved to North Carolina. That first winter was brutal, even with the heated suit I bought. I’ve since gotten a car and only ride the motorcycle for fun now.
In my free time, I like walking and bike riding in the park and along the greenways. I like reading. I like science and historical fiction mostly. My favorite authors are Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, Peter Watts and Umberto Eco.
I don’t watch much TV. When I do watch, it is usually with my daughters, so most of my favorites are cartoons like Adventure Time and Gravity Falls.
