Journey to the Catskills:
I was born and raised in NYC. I’ve been coming up to the Catskills since the early 1970s. I had moved to work in LA and stayed there for 14 years until I decided that LA was not the place I wanted to live in for the rest of my life. In 2002 I came back to New York but moved directly to the Catskills. Though I was born in the City, I always had a love of and respect for living in rural America. Not steel and glass – rather mountains, trees, and nature for me.
I’ve always gravitated towards technology since I was a kid. Into adulthood, I worked as a television engineer (in the analog days of TV) and technical director. And I also worked in audio/sound engineering. I have always had an iconoclastic lifestyle and have done many different things over the years. In the mid-1990s, I got involved with writing computer software, and had done that full-time for 20 years. In recent years I’ve become a partner in a small company mylivedistrict.com, and provide the technology that allows schools around the country to live stream their events and meetings.
At this point in my life, my one avocation is photography. I used to do it for income, but kind of retired from that.
Happiness is relativistic, subjective, and ephemeral. I don’t know how to answer this.
One of my favorite foods is sushi, which I ate a lot of during my years in NY and LA. I don’t see it much now, living in the Catskills.
