YEARS AT BUCK'S ROCK: 22 summers: 2 camper years, 1 cit, 19 staff.

CURRENT POSITION: Director of Performing Arts 

HOMETOWN: New York City

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU'RE NOT AT BUCK'S ROCK? I work for a theater software company, and in many off-broadway theaters as an associate sound designer.

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP? A scientist.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD? I love pasta.

FAVORITE THINGS TO DO: Walking my dog, going to the movies with Alana, playing music with friends, driving to camp.

FAVORITE SAYING: The faster a salmon swims upstream, the sooner he forgets why he was swimming so fast in the first place.

FAVORITE BUCK'S ROCK SHOP: I don’t like to play favorites, so I’ll answer this one only from an architectural perspective: I think the painting studio is one of the nicest buildings on camp.

LITTLE-KNOWN FACT: I once built a musical instrument out of an Arduino and a dozen bell peppers.

WEIRDEST PERSONAL TALENT: I can do a killer moose call.

BEST PART OF YOUR JOB: Walking campers and CITs home after a late rehearsal. Camp is so peaceful at night.

FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR: Vanilla! I love vanilla!

PROUDEST MOMENT: Seeing former campers become counselors and teach younger campers.

FAVORITE CARTOON THEME SONG: The original Duck Tales theme song is sixty seconds of pure brilliance.

WHERE IS YOUR HAPPY PLACE: The booth porch at the summer theater.

SECRET AMBITION: To have a photograph I took published in National Geographic.

OBSESSION: Flashlights. I’m obsessed with flashlights.
