A longtime timepiece collector preoccupied with the past, he quit his day job to found analog/shift, an online boutique for a curated selection of exceptional vintage wristwatches. When he's not scouring the planet for the very best in vintage horology, he can typically be found cruising around Manhattan in his '67 Porsche or holding court at a pub in Hell's Kitchen. He couldn't think of a good enough zinger to finish this bio, so will maintain that he's just not that clever.
