#BeBrave means seeing reality for what it really is, and yourself for what you really are, and then endeavoring to narrow the inevitable gap between the two.

Noteworthy Story or Next Adventure

In Buenos Aires at an organized tango night I accidentally/intentionally and repeatedly offended the bejeezus out of two hooligans. I was cruising for a bruising when an unlikely hero saved me: Harry Potter. Turned out one of the hooligans was a fan (as am I).

Favorite App/Book/Pub

The manga/anime series One Piece which is ostensibly about Monkey D. Luffy’s quest to sail around the world, but it’s also an exploration of identity and its impact on the meaning of life.

DC Go-to's

The East Wing of the National Gallery of Art which is an I.M. Pei masterpiece and home to one of my favorite works of art: Nam June Paik’s Ugly Buddha and Ugly Television.
