"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
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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
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.

Accents. I think I have an ear for them. Unless you're actually

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

Currently I'm reading "Dataclysm: Who We Are (When We Think No
One's Looking)" by Christian Rudder and“Hallucinations"

I'm also playing Paul McCartney now in a show about The Beatles a
friend of mine wrote, so I'm doing ALL the readings and research as
well as going over the script again and again and again and
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
Also, video games. I'm a PC kid.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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
