From the The Meander:
The Meander: Tell us a little about yourself.
Collin LaFleche: I grew up in a suburb of Boston called Newton. I spent some time in Boston and Cambridge as a teenager but mostly I remember my childhood as a time when I could walk anywhere I wanted to go, which is probably one of the reasons that New York feels comfortable to me. I spent a lot of time outdoors, and a lot of time following baseball statistics, and a lot of time drawing. When I was 14 my neighbour and I built a tree house together.
