His favorite outdoor activities are in-line skating, rock climbing, and horseback riding.
He has broken every finger on his right hand at least once - and the thumb and pinkie twice - but has never suffered any other broken bones.
He loves to sing and play guitar, and formed his first rock band, "Rampage," in seventh grade. He went on to become a founding member of two other bands, "Paradox" and "Big Wednesday" (in high school and college, respectively), before deciding that his true calling was not in the music industry.
He is a jazz aficionado and an avid reader.
He used to work for Greenpeace; he also worked briefly as a jazz pianist at a bar in Vienna, Austria, and spent a summer working on the Cape Cod & Hyannis Railroad. Other odd jobs held during & after college include English teacher, construction worker, and art/rare book dealer.
