My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi everyone. Has anyone wandered through a dark forest by themselves, but there's still enough light to see into the distance? Then all of a sudden a fog of nothingness casts its veil & envelops the scenery & impairs your vision? Well that's how it feels as I sit gazing at an empty screen, trying to find the words the best describes me.

Hello again, let me introduce myself. My real name is David, not Buzbet, as my profile suggests. Buzbet is a character I created for a short story I'm writing.

I recently graduated from drama school, retraining as an actor. I originally started off as an actor, but for the last few years (apart from doing a variety of odd jobs to survive [as the arts isn't a financially secure profession]) I went into directing plays.

I got into directing by sheer accident; I had finished working as an usher at the Donmar Warehouse Theatre. As I was looking for another job, my guitar teacher suggested that I should apply for a job at the Kings Head Theatre. I came across an eccentric old timer called Syd (who had one been an ex con [who had known the likes of the Krays] was running the lunch time theatre slot @ the Kings Head. I asked him if he needed any assistance & with his gruff cockney accent said "Fuck yes. Can you operate a lighting & sound desk?". I said I never had but none the less he took a gamble on me & hired me as his stage manager. From then on we became friends & he gave me my first ever directing gig & he also promoted me as associate director in his company. I will always be in his debt. Thanks Syd.

A couple of years ago while I was working as an usher @ the English National Opera, a friend of mine who also worked there suggested we should produce a show in aid of a charity. We got a group of friends of ours who also worked at the ENO, to write, direct, act, play music & stage manage the show. The show was called "Buskers" a variety show, but it was influenced by "Monty Python" & "The Young Ones" in style - surreal & anarchic. We raised nearly £700 for the N.S.P.C.C. I wore many hats for that show, apart from producing the show, I adapted the scripts, played the guitar and acted in one sketch. We had so much fun, I realized how much I missed acting and also how rusty I'd become. That was then I decided to return to drama school to to improve my acting skills.

I've grown up with the arts all my life as my folks and my younger sister are visual artists.

There are other things that I enjoy that bare not entirely to do with arts: I enjoy swimming, Japanese swords, the occasional gardening, seeing friends, cooking, playing the classical guitar and writing short stories and poems.

I am a sensitive, a little shy, romantic and occasionally stubborn early 40 something year old. Or is that strong minded? Who knows. I also I have a surreal sense of humour. Not everyone entirely understands it.

A while back I broke up with my ex girlfriend. Friends suggested I should join a dating agency. At first I was reluctant, but I am glad I have because I have made some very nice friends on OKC. I am looking for friends only at the moment. As I have just found the most beautiful lady who has entered in to my life and she makes me the happiest man in the world. (I am sure I have made some people cringe when reading this particular section of my profile :). But thank you never the less for being able to read through this bit).

I am Artistic, Spiritual, and Romantic
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated from drama school at the Bridge Theatre Training Company. With some of college friends we did a Shakespeare showcase for agents and friends. I have also been very fortunate to get my first acting job in straight after I left college. I was touring around schools in a panto of "Sleeping Beauty" and I got to play a wicked fairy. It was my first ever experience to wear a dress. Perhaps not the last.

Like any struggling actor, I do the tread mill of auditions (which I enjoy- which may sound strange. I feel one learns a lot by doing them). I am currently setting up my own theatre company, so I don't always have to rely on agent actively seeking work for me. I currently preparing one of the company's first plays, Pinter's "The Dumb Waiter". I am also working on to stage Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya" and Pirendello's "The Man with the Flower in His Mouth" at some point soon.

When I am not acting or directing or working on a production, I was employed as a sales assistant in an antique/secondhand furniture store called "Junk 'N' Disorderly. Recently I was made redundant from there and now I am currently working as an usher at the Cambridge Theatre, that is showing a musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic children's novel "Matilda". As I am not particularly a musical buff by nature, I do highly recommend seeing this as it's very moving and entertaining at the same time. This helps to pay the bills.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm not sure what to say here, except you'd have to ask my friends, as they seem to know me better than I know myself. Some say that I am a good actor and director and that I am very good to listening to people. I think they are being too kind.

Cupcakes. How to make the best mint cupcakes. As I have this very special friend from Alabama who makes wonderfully tasty Angel cakes (English for Cupcakes) and I want to impress her with my culinary skills.

She has been having a bit of a difficult time of late and I want to show her my appreciation and thankfulness because she has and is an amazing friend to me in the past. And as someone as wonderful and kind and beautiful as her does not deserve to be sad.

But as I don't have all the required skills to make such great cakes as hers, would she be kind enough to give me a little assistance in the kitchen? I would be truly grateful.
