Describe your style: Vintage with a little help on the colors from my wife.

Fashion trends you love: I like the mix of the formal and casual: skinny ties with Converse.

Fashion trends you hate: Birkenstocks and those plastic Crocs! That’s like basically saying you’ve given up on people looking at you.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? Asymmetrical haircuts and street vendors.

Less of? Chiggers!

Tattoos or piercings: I have a tattoo of the robot Maria from "Metropolis."

Whom do people say you look like? My students used to say that I looked like “that one guy from that one movie,” but I never knew what they were talking about.

Tell us a secret: I’m currently undergoing 60 straight days of yoga at the OmTree Shala on Mass. St. to prepare for turning 40.
