HELLO, I'M JOHN.

The first question I ever asked my parents was whether or not I was named after a toilet.

Unfortunately, I wasn't. 

But I do play the saxophone and I'm a huge fan of jazz. I also like cooking, camping, coffee, cats named Coby, and apparently words that begin with C. Except for corduroy. Touching it makes me shiver. It's weird.

I'm currently based in San Francisco. If you're not familiar, it's a city that doesn't start with the letter C.

Oh, and if you were actually named after a toilet, please email John.David.Friedman@gmail.com. I'd love to know how you're doing.
