|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 .220 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 play hoop with the guys in the park despite my advanced age and deficiency of a vertical since birth. I'm also an avid sporting car driver and motorcyclist(SV650S sportbike). I live at the base of Angeles Crest Highway and drive/ride it frequently on deserted early mornings.|
|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 a good half-and-half/black-and-tan, and I usually remember which one not to order in the presence of an Irishman.
A 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. (Sexual abuse scandal and cover-up was sorta the last straw.)
My wife is Romanian Orthodox (like Old School Catholicism doncha know), and I quite like the idea of sexually-normal, married priests. Duh.
|Musical Favorites:||Queens of the Stone Age, 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.
Big Elvis fan since birth (all of it, the skinny rebel through the fatted Vegas calf), and huge Prince fan. (Greatest musician I have ever seen, and it isn't close. Lovesexy Tour '87, Musicology Tour 3 times, 2 nights of the residency at the Inglewood Forum at $25/tix. Best $25 I've ever spent.)
|Favorite Quote from an ND Coach:||I want you to save Jimmy Johnson's ass for me. -Lou Holtz|
I was an ART major, and am a photographer. I manage the big professional camera store in LA, mainly so I can eat regularly. I can ship to ND folks around the country once vetted, and usually can match the big NY photo stores. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org 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(TOTALLY outdated by now) that is currently archived in The Back Room Almanac. Please mention ND, and your NDNation handle in subject line if applicable.
