I live in NoLita, a little old Italian neighborhood sandwiched between Soho and the Lower East Side. It's an unusually quiet four blocks in the middle of Manhattan with great coffee, books, bars, breakfast, lunch, dinner, an ancient church and the most beautiful public garden. It has a great energy and you can hear yourself think. I'm a chef, love photography and clean lines. I have an amazing girlfriend who believes in me, so I'm constantly cooking her dinner to show my gratitude. I believe in Wabi-Sabi and laughing with friends over drinks. I love getting to know people 1x1 and in small groups; I'm infinitely curious about you and your unique experience, and believe anything is possible if we become conscious of our fears and use the support of each other to take steps to achieve what seemed impossible.
