My self-summary
"I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don't let anybody tell you different." - Kurt Vonnegut

Just another confused human. Sometimes I think I know what I'm doing, but mostly I fart around.

At the moment I'd say I'm an artistically minded theatre geek with aspirations toward becoming an artistically accomplished theatre geek.
What I’m doing with my life
My life right now consists of applying for unpaid gigs that will give me "exposure" and help me "meet the right people" so that eventually, if I'm reeeeally lucky, all the money and training and effort and frustration will yield something can only loosely be defined as a "career".

But honestly, I do a lot that I enjoy. I perform on stage and in short films. I take classes and do workshops. I see shows and I read plays. I even write my own and I'm currently investigating the the next step in terms of getting my work developed and put on somewhere.

I also, on occasion, like dancing. I've taken classes in Swing and Blues for a number of years on and off, though not frequently enough to progress beyond the level of casually competent.
I’m really good at
Accents. I think I have an ear for them. Unless you're actually from the country I'm trying to imitate, in which case, not really. :P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I usually like to alternate between classic lit, hard sci-fi and general interest nonfiction (history, politics, biology, astronomy, philosophy). I get really into anything that relates to deconstructing human behaviour, decision making and why we think the way we think.

Films: LOTS. I group them by director. ALL the arthouse.

I'm a big, big fan of QI. Stephen Fry stepping down as host makes me sad to no end, but Sandi Toksvig will be awesome.

Musically I prefer jazz, swing, soul, blues, classical, *some* electronica (if they combine it with real instruments) and lots of film scores. Also, cheesy 90's pop hits. Gotta love em.

I also see a lot of theatre around Melbourne and am familiar with most of the well known Western playwrights of the twentieth/twenty-first century.

Also, video games. I'm a PC kid.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I ought to live this one life and whether I should spend my day dedicating myself to perfecting a skill or just go sit under a tree in the park to read and just try to enjoy the moment more.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I secretly dream of one day playing a Bond villain.

I'm a Kindle convert. Book lovers may tisk and sigh, but I read more widely and more often now than I ever did with the old paperbacks.
