I grew up in NYC but have lived on the west coast since I was 19. I'm Jewish and have been a believer in the Messiah for over thirty years. I'm involved in a Messianic congregation and a non-denominational church. My background is in art and literature, but I'm an autodidact and interested in science and history. I listen to a wide variety of music, read voraciously. I live on the edge of the foothills of the Sierras and delight in the natural world.
