grew up near the Brunswick Drive-In in North Brunswick N.J., which
has been torn down for almost 30 years now. In the winter time,
the marquee would be changed to read "Closed For The Season".
When I got older, I had a crazy idea this would be a great title
for a book. Maybe even a movie.
I am presently writing a book
called "Closed For the Season " about a family, trying
to get over the death of a loved one, dealing with the obstacles
of every day life, while at the same time trying to hold on to
their memories of what once was. A family made up of a brother
and sister, their father, and the mother of his deceased wife.
This title best describes how I view life and the problems that
occur around it. "Closed" refers to our pasts, and how
we must learn to move forward and keep living our lives. "Season"
refers to the nuturing of our hearts and minds in that we must
also learn to open up and occasionally look back upon our yesteryears
and all of the fond memories which make them up, because these
memories are part of the framework of who we are as individuals,
and they help direct us toward our futures.
I've been living in the Old City district
of Philadelphia for about 17 years (20 years in Philly total).
Presently I am one of three partners of Rebel
Capitol Designs, a graphic design company also situated in
the Old City district of Philadelphia. On my spare time I enjoy
photography, backpacking, hiking, cycling, doing yoga, relaxing
in a local coffee house either reading or writing in my journal,
dining out, and visiting lighthouses and coastal areas.
My dream is to one day become a photojournalist,
move to a coastal village in the Outer Banks of North Carolina
with a house right off the beach and a lighthouse nearby, retire
and live the rest of my days looking out at the ocean and listening
to the waves come in.
