Born Irish Bostonian transplanted from my hometown of Los Angeles to New York City where I now call Hell's Kitchen my home. I am a creative and artistic person living life as a positive and spiritual person. Lover of people with good humor, live shows be it concerts, Broadway, or local bands, and new experiences that can be educational, inspiring, and fun such as museums, festivals, or traveling. I consider my friends as family, and my family as friends. Whether or not it's one or one hundred people you may have to call as either the genuine payoff is love, understanding, and gift we should cherish. View all posts by Garrett Kimball
