WHAT WOULD THE TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY BE? “Analog Boy In A Digital World”

WHAT CAN’T YOU TRAVEL WITHOUT AND WHY? A duplicate pair of my favorite Nike high top dunks.

WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE TRAVEL DESTINATION?  Japan… They have such an incredible culture and are so respectful and kind to everyone. They also have a great music scene where American punk music is embraced with open ears.

IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ONE PERSON TO SHOW YOU “THEIR NEW YORK CITY,” WHO WOULD IT BE? Vic Ruggiero of The Slackers.  I would imagine that he knows every small venue and bar where you can catch the best upcoming musical talent.

WHAT OR WHO HAS INSPIRED YOU RECENTLY AND WHY? My girlfriend Byrdie inspires me every day.  She has a work ethic like no other, and handles even the most stressful work days with such grace and composure.
