I hail from…
a small town in New Jersey but I've been living in Brooklyn for the past 8 years. 

I’m currently working on…
a series of eight 16x20 flash sheets for the shop, making up for all of the extra flash sheets I owe friends, and serving my community daily with tattoos at R&D Tattoo in Queens, NYC. 

My favorite meal is…
nabeyaki udon! 

I collect…
dice, knives and sentimental junk.

The last thing I read was…
Journey to the End of the Night by Louis-Ferdinand Céline. 

Presently, I’m listening to…
Billy Bragg's "Life's a Riot with Spy Vs. Spy" and Brian Fallon's new solo record.

The jeans sit atop a pair of whit Converse sneakers.

The best way to unwind is…
with a glass of Jameson neat and some painting. 

The last piece of advice given to me was…
"Be good" by my mother, something I try to remember every day.

One place I would love to visit is…
Abruzzo, where the Italian side of my family came from before they immigrated to New York.

In 20 years I hope to be…
20 years wiser with a nice cool breeze.
