My self-summary
I'm a words person. I write plays and have always been a huge reader. I'm happiest dealing with words, so naturally my favorite people are all great conversationalists.

I'm really passionate about theater, and can't imagine a relationship with someone who doesn't care strongly about some kind of art (doesn't have to be theater.)

Above all else, I love to laugh. And I love people who can make me laugh my ass off. Those people tend to be smart, quick-witted, good with words, irreverent, and a little vulgar.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a playwright living in Washington Heights.

I'm originally from Phoenix, then lived in Providence for seven years (four years of college at Brown, three years of getting my masters at Brown/Trinity) and moved to New York City in 2011.

I fill my time with theater stuff: acting, writing, going to shows, and getting my fledgling theater company off the ground.

To pay the bills, I work at a restaurant. I've had some cicerone training and am pretty obsessed with beer.

I also spend a lot of time taking long walks with my dogs Betty and Barney. (named by the shelter -- I'm not that big a Flintstones fan) They're Shih Tzu mutts and I absolutely adore them. I feel like a single mom saying, "He's got to love my dogs!"
I’m really good at
Sleeping in (that's where I'm a viking!), staying up late and getting others to stay up late, good conversation, spelling, grammar, improving awkward situations, improv comedy (four years of it in college) Scrabble, Taboo, Erotic Photohunt, charades, cheering people up, staying calm in chaotic situations, talking to my dogs in a ridiculous voice, mimicking
The first things people usually notice about me
"You're tall."

Also, I'm usually carrying an enormous iced coffee.

something to look forward to
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking beer, staying in to write, or both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't bike. I can, but I don't. Pretty certain that if I tried to bike in New York City I would be killed immediately.
