Me? Lil ol' me? Well, if you insist. "The details of my life are quite inconsequential... My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet..." Wait, that wasn't me, that was Dr. Evil. Me, I've been in the city for a long while, having come from Massachusetts (with a stop in LI for grad school). I really enjoy living here, though I've still kept my loyalty to the hometown teams. I'm an actor and writer (and also work as a medical editor. Although no one knows what that means. Even after I explain it). I've shaved my chest three times to play William Shatner, been crushed to death by a giant lobster claw, performed completely in the dark, and fought off atomic flesh-eating zombies (until I eventually got bitten and shot...and then there's the stuff that's really out there). And those were all different shows, although I am now kind of curious what that would look like all combined.
I am happy, peppy, and bursting with love.
The beard comes and goes.
What I’m doing with my life
In addition to the aforementioned careers, always looking to learn
about life and perspective.
I’m really good at
enjoying myself, laughing, talking, back rubs. And empathy.
The first things people usually notice about me
To be honest, I have no idea. I've never met me. Just one day,
there I was, and I seem to follow me wherever I go. Maybe someone
here can let me know.

I never say never...except just then...that was the first time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeing a show, at the movies, meeting friends, at home
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once I...wait a minute. Nice try, OKCupid. Almost got me there.
You should message me if
you feel the inclination. I'd be happy to hear from you. Go for it.
