Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, my name is Andy and I'm kind of new to town. I live in
Bushwick, Brooklyn but i love exploring and i know my way around
pretty well from previous trips to the city. In May I decided to
leave my job and my hometown (Philadelphia) to hit the reset button
on my life. I've been an actor since I was in elementary school and
was raised around the theater. I figured that since I'm going to be
30 this year, now was the perfect time to just go for it.
I'm off to the stereotypical start doing restaurant work (I'm a
barback/sous chef at the moment.). I'm treating this life change
like one would treat joining the army or the priesthood: I'm
devoting my life for better or worse to my art. I have no ambition
to retire, I want to do this for the rest of my life. I have no
delusions either, I know this will be hard but I have a beast of a
work ethic.... also I have an agent in Philly helping a
I liken moving to NYC with little money and no job to jumping onto
a canoe: It has taken me two months to stabilize and start to stand
up. I think I'm close to the point where I can sit down and start
paddling, but this city always has a surprise for you (like when
your restaurant closes with no notice).
I have chosen interesting over regular, unpredictable over
predictable, and I'm sticking with it. Unfortunately, us bohemian
type people are seldom rich. If you're looking for a baller-sugar
daddy guy then I'm not it. However, if all you need is love then I
have a lot of it to give. I'm a shy guy, but I would like to find a
partner in crime to have inside jokes with who gets this paragraph
and identifies with it. I don't think I am looking for anything too
serious, but if somebody special comes along that can be changed
and I'm good at letting special people know they are special to
Side note: I'm not as pretentious as my name and summary would
suggest. I'm actually kind of a goofball who is always smiling and
who always has something witty to say or a silver lining to point
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Stabilizing my canoe... See above canoe metaphor.
Basically working my balls off, looking for a new agent, chasing
paper. I work in a bar in Williamsburg right now, but I should
probably quit.... I'm loyal to a fault sometimes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having something witty to say.
Picking out the perfect song to play for any occasion.
Being amused by little things.
Accents (that's my specialty as an actor).
Making a good first impression.
The first things people usually notice about me

Books: Heart of Darkness by Conrad is prolly my fav. I love me some
Twain and Czech dissidents equally. Oscar Wilde rocks. I'm working
on Rock n' Roll by Stoppard at the moment, I read a lot of
Movies: Old stuff: I'm the guy who'll take Casablanca over any
modern romantic film. I'm the only person I know with two silent
films in his DVD collection (Battleship Potemkin and October... I
love Eisenstein) I also have a serious thing for Kung-Fu films and
old samurai jawns like Akira Kurosawa's work. Ronin with DeNiro is
the film that made me want to go to film school (I went to film
school by the way.)
TV: I really only watch MSNBC and Hockey (I'm a politics and hockey
nerd). I'll give anything a try though. I watched Drunk History the
other night for the first time and it changed my life.
Music: I'm all over the place with this one so I'll tell you the
next 10 songs that come on my spotify

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Acting, Air conditioning, laughing, music, coffee, The Flyers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What my next move is....
Politics, I'm kind of an idealist. I don't say much about it,
unless you ask me, but it's on my mind a lot.
What's wrong with the Philadelphia Flyers on that particular day.
It's kind of my religion.
I also run lines in my head constantly... back to the acting thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking Cristal from the skulls of my enemies while flying around
town with my jetpack.
Ugh, I don't know. Usually working but I'd rather go grab a drink.
I go out more on weekdays. This section is silly. Even if you live
in a bomb shelter 24/7, you're not going to say "chilling in my

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've got rhythm... but I'm not a good dancer. Just pretend you
don't know me until the song is over.
You should message me if

You "get" me
You would be open to helping me run a third world socialist
