Jefferson is the curator and host of Bare!, monthly in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. A sex educator and writer, Jefferson keeps a pseudonymous blog, One Life, Take Two, that details his life as a parent and pervert. He is a storyteller frequently seen on stages around New York and elsewhere, including The Moth, where he is a StorySLAM winner. He is also host of Foreplay! A Sexy Storytelling Open Mic, biweekly at the Delancey in New York.
Nisse Greenberg is wearing pants despite the fact that is shorts weather. It was just a mistake, but it’s a mistake that will haunt him for minutes. Soon he will put on shorts and then think about art some more. He really likes art that he makes and also sometimes art that others make. You should check out his playground at Nisse Greenberg. It’s full of art that he’s made. Mostly he tells stories, but also he writes things and teaches math-like things.
