I now identify youth as something that exists outside myself, that is defined by the advantage and disadvantage of not knowing what you are up against. Having said that, I feel pretty useful and see a second adolescence in my future.
This is the Rufus with three boys, Declan, Grey and Rye, an extraordinary wife named Alisa, and a few companies under my belt -- Nerve, Spring Street Networks and Babble. I now work for the Walt Disney Company as GM / VP of Babble, and I am working more broadly on growing the Family division of Disney Interactive.
I feel blessed to have sired three sons (I know, sired sounds horsey, but it feels rather regal), and I am entirely grateful to be able to continue to live in new york city despite this reckless procreation.
