Writer, musician, comedian and scholar, he was a member of the band Mad Tryst. His goal was to change the world. Last year, he traveled to Cambodia where he taught English and worked at an AIDS orphanage. This changed his view of the world and embedded in him a strong will to help others. He leaves behind his music and his writings, which we will cherish forever. He was to enter his senior year at the New School University in Greenwich Village. He had friends from all walks of life who will miss him. He was living his life to the fullest and died a happy young man that we are so proud of.
