1.  How did you get that big scar? Well, that's actually a long story.  Truth is, I've told so many different stories about my scar, I don't even know what's real anymore, and who knows what truth.  But me and a few of my best friends from kindergarten got so tired of telling the truth, as we grew up through high school, several truths have developed around the scar.  The real truth, is hidden in the book, and to be honest, I don't even think of the physical scar anymore, the ones on my heart keep me up at night.

2.  What was your first job? At 17, I fell in puppy love with a 20 year old woman who lived a few blocks from me.  She worked in a place that did telephone surveys.  I followed her there, and landed a job doing phone surveys.  She quit the job pretty quick, but I ended up being pretty good at it.  My first survey was a study on toilet paper, which kept people on the phone for over 20 minutes.  I've done all types of surveys, from politics, to movies, to food, etc.  That job was the best thing that ever happened to me, because it taught me how to listen, how to keep someone's attention on the phone, how to listen for voice deflections, how to talk fast and slow, and how converse with people in general.  Most people who run into me say I'm very easy to talk to, bottom line is..I just listen and ask questions.

3.  What are some of your hobbies? Sports Interests? I actually love football.  Mom never let me play high school though, as she thought it would interfere with my studies.  So I took up hockey as the games were played Friday night.  I am an avid New York Rangers fan.  When I was younger I followed the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers, and of course those Cowboys.  But as anyone who truly is into sports, fantasy leagues ruin everything, and you become more of a player fan than a team fan.  I do also follow the Yankees.  As far as hobbies, I love eating new foods, tapas in some areas.  I enjoy cooking, the beach, playing poker, and socializing with friends. I watch some TV, mostly History Channel or Discover, as I love to learn new things, and I firmly believe the past has so much to teach us, we just can't simply ignore it.  I am not religious, but spiritual, I believe in not harming anyone, and just live life to the fullest, it's truly short.  Live in the moment!

4.  What's your favorite type of music?  I listen to all types, but was raised on heavy metal, alternative rock, and some hip hop.  Ok, so I'll mention a few bands, Depeche Mode, Metallica, Nirvana, David Bowie, and The Cure.  I truly believe they are musical geniuses.

5.  How did you learn to type so fast? Ha, well in high school, I had another crush.  She took typing class and I joined the same class.  Again, I excelled in it, and actually took the 2nd year of typing.  It was such a blessing as I could crank out papers in high school and college in under 1 hour, where most people spent the weekend.  Things really happen for a reason.  Follow your heart, cause the reason will expose itself down the road.

6.  What inspired you to write this book? I've read, seen, heard, felt, and created a lot in my life.  Some are of course personal, some are ones I've seen and embellished, some are just fantasies I've created or have been told to me in the past.  It needs to be read and heard.

7.  What's up with your profile picture? Lol, well.  I have a few quirks, kinks myself.  I love dearly what I am writing about, but let's be real, I want to make money, a ton of it, and then I don't want anyone pestering me in my public life.  I am very private. In my young career, I made several people millions of dollars, with the promise, a handshake promise, that they would in the end take care of me for my hard work.  I've been burned. It's my turn now, and this is something I always wanted to do, and since it has my whole heart, I know it will succeed, as my past products that had my full attention always caught fire.   People are cruel, and there are a select few I trust that I can see myself enjoying the rest of my life.

8.  What college did you attend? What was your major? I won't tell you exactly where, but I did attend several, and not because of bad grades, but because of life's circumstances I had to move.  I have always wanted to help people express their ideas and dreams better so I have committed to doing just that.  Imagine a world where everyone could effectively communicate their desires, where every dream could find its audience? That’s the world I seek to create.  I am always surprised how people shy from their hidden desires and thoughts, where I tend to express them freely, and I feel that the people that are attracted to those thoughts will gravitate towards me.  I did major in Engineering and Finance, a dual major.  I am about 3 classes short of finishing my dual major, but simply stopped because school burned me out, and the end of my college career, I was offered a lucrative job in Manhattan for over $65,000.  At 20, who could turn that down?  I figured I could always finish at night school, but in the end, my experience was worth more than the degree.

9.  Did that twins scene really happen? All I can say is hell in a mellon is a true story.

Anything else, feel free to ask me, I'm an open book ;-)
