Height:  5'10 Weight:  190 lbs. Alumni Status:  '91
Location:  Los Angeles Favorite Baseball Team:  The Amazin' Mets
Natural Enemies:  Anybody who doesn't like Notre Dame. (stole this from Oldomer...but it really sums it up.)

Athletic Ability: I was the .200 hitting defensive whiz 2B/SS, phased out by the 30HR-100RBI man. I'm a 4.5 USTA tennis player, a decent golfer although I admittedly hit buckets usually, and I can still hoop with the guys in the park despite my advanced age and deficiency of a vertical since birth. I'm also an avid motorcyclist(Suzuki SV650S sportbike), when I'm not busy crashing.

Sartorial Style: I am uncomfortable in anything other than jeans, although I clean-up well for funerals and weddings.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: I like me a good Black-n-Tan.

Tanquaray & Tonic when I gotta spend more than I like amongst strangers.

Political Philosophy: Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

Religious Philosophy: Catholicism is what I was raised in, but I've been lapsed for a long time. I'm recently married (Romanian Orthodox, like Old School Catholicism doncha know), and God is becoming very important again.

Musical Favorites: Radiohead, Interpol, Travis, Franz, Killers, stuff like that in Rock.

Then, lots of Alt-Country...Jayhawks, Uncle Tupelo, Ryan Adams, Wilco, Steve Earle, Jim Lauderdale, Radney Foster, Foster & Lloyd, etc.

Lots of Elvis, and plenty of Prince. (saw Musicology Tour 3 times...row 2, row 5, and 1st row upper deck. Can't always win ya know.)

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: I want you to save Jimmy Johnson's ass for me. -Lou Holtz

Miscellaneous Data:
I was an ART major, and am a photographer. I sell cameras at a big store in LA, mainly so I can eat regularly. Feel free to contact me at to ask me advice or an opinion on digital cameras; if you need general help with imaging and Photoshop, printing or editing images; for image recovery off of bad memory cards, etc. I have written a long post about cameras(little outdated by now, gotta fix it) that is currently archived in The Back Room Almanac. Please mention ND, and your NDNation handle if applicable.
