Elan Babchuck is deathly afraid of heights, but rock-climbs at least twice a week. He is a vegetarian, but he eats fish. He is a huge Red Sox fan, but he doesn’t hate the Yankees. Less paradoxically (and more importantly), he is a husband to the greatest community organizer and social entrepreneur he’s ever met, and a father to an 18 month-old who can already work a room better than his abba. You can keep up with him by email at email@example.com and Twitter @ElanBabchuck.
