When I’m not at work I’m probably implementing a Brazilian BBQ party behind my house in Williamsburg, where I live with my wife Michelle. I might also be found sleeping, fixing something or shooting a video about an underground artist in an shaky elevator with my friend and team partner Mihai Botarel, in the quest of discovering the fabulous New York City.
