Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
OK...it's time to work on this. First of all, my nickname comes
from the fact that I played Atticus Finch in a Lake County
Repertory Theater production of "To Kill a Mockingbird" a few years
ago. Of course, I did my best Gregory Peck imitation (not really)
to some acclaim. Seriously though, it was a great role---and where
do you go after THAT?
While on the subject of entertainment, here are 2 more interesting
little tidbits...while living in Lake County, I tried my hand at
stand-up comedy a few times (OK, not exactly the big time, but
still kind of a rush when people "get you.")...and in my 20's, back
in NY, I tried to break into modeling, with a portfolio and the
Sadly, I was too tall (and the wrong jacket size) for fashion
modeling. 44 Extra Long just doesn't work in that world.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in health care. My two main hobbies are art and golf. I go
to the gym most days. I love yard sales, movies, photography, and I
collect vinyl records. Assemblage---I have been creating, and
exhibiting sculptural, wall-mounted, assemblages made from found
objects. I've sold about 25 so far, had several that hung at Morris
Graves, and have had 2 articles about me in the Eureka
Times-Standard. I was the featured artist for February, 2014 at the
Old Town Art Gallery in Eureka.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Creative things (visual arts, writing) and brainstorming. I'm also
pretty good at trivia games.
I'm a decent golfer. Once upon a time I was an 8 handicap. Now I'm
a 20. I can still hit the ball a long way. Keeping it in play is my
only problem. I need to play more. Update: I recently shot an 80
from the back tees at Eureka G.C. (Even par on the front nine!)
Yes, I was "in the zone."

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

band names..."Exudate" (might be good for a folk or bluegrass duo)

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working out at Healthsport, out with a friend or two, or
