Was born in bklyn, rasied in the nyc suburbs, went to school upstate, lived in berkeley for 2yrs, studied abroad a few times, been back living in bklyn for about 10yrs. I love the creative, lefty, literary, diverse, laidback vibe of Brooklyn.

Introduction

Hi Everyone, and welcome! Park Slope and the nearby areas are great - why go to Manhattan? I live just south of prospect part, teach in clinton hill (visual studies/philosophy),­ and generally hang in the slope or nearby.
