What I do When I'm Not Creating

  • I am a competitive cyclist - I love to race my bicycle!

    I've been competing in road, mountain bike and cyclocross disciplines since 2005. Although I am no stranger to the podium, It wasn't until 2011 that I first stood on that top step as an elite ameteur.

  • I am an expert snowboarder - I love to ride my snowboard!

    I've been riding since 1987. I started out on skis, however, being already well versed on the surf board and skateboard, it was a logical progression.

  • I am a life-long musician - I love playing music!

    Studying cello and classical piano in my early life, I picked up a guitar at 14 and taught myself how to play. I've played in several bands and have written plenty of tunes since. I was also an electronic music DJ in the early 2000's with a residency at the House Of Blues in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA.

  • I am a responsible steward of the outdoors - I love my planet!

    That's right, I care. I try to make all daily and long term decisions based on their environmental impact and try and tread as lightly as possible on our earth. It's just the right thing to do.
