What better photo of myself to use than one of me sitting at the mecca of all things commercial and pop culture? No, I am not from New York City. I shouldn’t fear anyone would assume that based on a photo of me in Times Square; nothing screams “tourist” more than such a stock photo. I have been accused of being counter cultural and may have even affixed that label to myself, but what culture are we talking about? For better or worse, I cannot be restrained to any culture I find myself a part of. I actively try to combat what I do not like about the scene. I’m like Season 1 of “Fresh Prince” (for a more upsetting reference, see failed sitcom “Under One Roof” starring Flavor Flav). I’m like those looks Jim gives to the camera on “The Office” (for a more dated reference, see “Wayne’s World”). I’m a fan of Rick Ross. I can’t recite any of his lyrics, but I love his work as a correction’s officer. Buffalo, New York, college, work, newborn, wife, house, debt, teach, wash, rinse, repeat.
