Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, uh, let's see...I may very well be the world's only practicing
, in that I attend mass weekly, but reject many of
the core dogma of the church, do not accept the rite of Communion,
and haven't been to confession since I was a teenager. I could
probably create a clever rationalization for that, but it's mainly
due to moral
. I'm a capital-L Libertarian
and serious enough about it that I've actually done a fair amount
of writing and speaking on the subject.
What else? I'm a decent playwright
with the bad reviews to
prove it; I'm half-Chinese
, half-white; I'm a
dropout with a GED and yes, I'm happy with that decision; and I
have an autonomic disorder
severely limits my activity, although I train hard and possess a
remarkable degree of mobility, considering. How's that to start

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in the theatre
, and I dabble in pretty much
everything -- but first and foremost I consider myself a writer
, and everything else
I do (directing, acting) is an extension of that. I love my work;
lord knows I'd be a fool to do it for the money.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
, I hope, since that's my
profession. I've also done some street and slam poetry
, as well as song lyrics
for musicals and rock bands. I'm a mime
, believe it or not, and I've done
everything from white-face street mime to full-length slapstick
have some limited background in gymnastics
, and various martial arts

Entertainment is my business, so my tastes are eclectic and all
over the map -- I love Victorian poetry
, superhero comics
, and European
. I think that Wolfram von Eschenbach's Parzival
is the supreme
achievement of Western literature, and that Kyle Rayner is the
; I can rattle off Tennyson
by heart and am ashamed to
admit that I have a secret collection of Dragonlance
novels I more or less
failed to outgrow.
When it comes to movies, well, lately I've been on a German
kick, and kung-fu
DVDs take up half my shelf. I'm
obsessed with classic comedians from Groucho Marx
to Woody Allen
. As for music,
sheesh, Wagnerian opera
, big-band jazz
...I guess it boils down to the fact that I've never really drawn a
distinction between so-called "high art" and "low art". I'm equally
content wading through James Joyce
or Neil Gaiman
. If it entertains
me, I'm happy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's no such thing as a typical Friday night. I'm usually
working on a number of different projects, all of which have
sporadic schedules. I have no social life; occasionally a friend
will drag me out to a movie or a bar. I'm also a drama critic, so
if I'm lucky I'm seeing good theatre. Otherwise, I'm just as likely
to be curled up with a good book.
