Lucien says it best: “I’ve flown planes, I’m a sailor who enjoys overnights with my wife and two sons on Chesapeake Bay, offshore racing, and I’m a good man in a storm.  I enjoy DJ-ing and longboarding in NYC; in the 80’s I taught myself to solve the Rubik’s Cube in under a minute. I’ve been on TV, lived in a school bus on a hippie commune in Tennessee, spent summers in nudist communities, lived on a canal houseboat in Amsterdam, and experimented with numerous hallucinogens. Returning to Burning Man, I led a blind runner in two marathons without training. I was at ground zero on 9/11 and worked underground for weeks following. Raced classic sports cars and super bikes, lived through motorcycle crashes at 100 mph and jumped a car 30 feet into a tree, had multiple surgeries and almost died as a teenager with rusty steel puncturing a lung and scraping my heart, then again in a Brazilian undertow. I can wake board and water ski on one ski, enjoy SCUBA diving with sharks at night and snowboarding. I grew up SOHO with artists in the 60s-70s and still enjoy loft living. Can balance things on my nose, juggle and walk on my hands (not at the same time), don’t sleep much, grew up in a bi-racial and gay family, am a published author and photographer focused on innovative techniques, a producer and creative director owning a successful studio with a staff of up to 20. I was a concert sound engineer/technician, I respect the color grey, stole a car, build electronics, program computer games, do all my own stunts, mentored minorities and women entrepreneurs for decades, enjoy cooking and eating strange foods, love math, puzzles and singing.  I work well with my hands, fix and invent stuff. I’ve been skydiving and hang gliding, was arrested at least once but also promoted, applauded and awarded, I’ve been in a room with 40 dead bodies, avoid formal religions, rock climb, and was a NYC bicycle messenger.
