I am human. I am male. I am American. Nothing else identifies me.
My hometown, where I was born and raised, draws an ocean of people, not just from across the country but from all over the world. They are the most talented, the most skilled, the most learned, the most creative.
I am grateful they come to New York City. Their energy and vibrancy, their souls, feed my existence and life. I thank each and every one of them.
