Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a semi-recent transplant to New York, here from the rocky
mountains of Colorado since May of 2010. I have grown to love
living in New York, and every day I feel grateful to be in such an
I try and greet each day as it comes, knowing that through my
blunders, I have opportunities to grow and become better. I am by
no means an optimist or a perfectionist, but I do have high
expectations for myself and respect others who do for themselves as
I've been told that prematurely eccentric, which I take as a
compliment. I have always felt very connected with the past, and
somewhat misplaced within time.
Although I could not be considered "religious," I feel a very
spiritual connection to the acts of and the products of human
expression and imagination. In art, I see "the divine." I have
always been attracted to, inspired and sustained by it. It
permeates and informs all that I experience, and gives me my
greatest sense of purpose and direction.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an art nerd with a BFA
and a BA in Art History
State University. I spent a couple of years as a resident artist in
a contemporary art
I had a studio and show space, and now I'm living out the New York
starving artist cliché, complete with the day job sitting at a desk
from 9-5 and the uptown Manhattan 5th floor walk up apartment.
Eventually I may get up the courage to apply to MFA programs, you
know, so I can make the big bucks with additional super-useful
degrees, like a Masters in Drawing, muahahaha...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at putting my foot in my mouth, I have always been
amazingly gifted at saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, and
trying my best to laugh off even the worst of my faux pas.
I grew up in a family of musicians and have played guitar
and been singing
for most of my life. I
enjoy listening to and playing many different varieties of music.
Lately I've been learning old jazz songs on the ukulele
, but I can't yet say that
i've "mastered" it...

My mother always told me that I was born old, I've always had
tastes for many things from the past.
I'm a big fan of jazz
, and have
taken up collecting vintage LP's
. Some of my
favorites include Django Reinhardt
, Fats Waller
, etc... My father was a bluegrass
musician, and so I'm quite
fond of folk
from the American past. I do enjoy a lot of contemporary
musicians as well like Tom Waits
, Joni Mitchell
, Regina Spektor
, Carla Bruni
, and more
than can fit on this page. Also I can never get enough of classic rock
especially the later Beatles
I'm a huge movie buff. I love foreign films
, especially French
and Spanish cinema. I am a huge Woody Allen
fan, I believe I've seen
every one of his films, and have many favorites. I love old movies
and have many favorite actors like Katherine Hepburn
, Cary Grant
, Greta Garbo
, Mae West
, Bette Davis
, James Cagney
One of my favorite books is The Unbearable
Lightness of Being
by Milan Kundera
. I love the short
stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald
well as The
(of course, who doesn't?). David Sedaris
is one of my
contemporary literary heroes. I'll also always love Roald Dahl
of how old I get.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am HIV positive and healthy. I've learned to make my peace with
it. Going through the experience has given me a great many things,
which I feel have become my strengths. If this is a problem for
you, then please feel free to pass me by.
