Like most people, I don't think I fall into any single category or
type of person. People adapt to the situations they are in at any
given moment. In general though, I believe in the golden rule, and
do my utmost everyday to treat others with the same respect and
kindness I hope to receive. I consider myself someone who can get
along with just about anyone but is pretty picky about who I allow
into my inner circle. Things that matter to me, in no particular
order, are: an open mind, humor and the ability to laugh at
oneself, physical fitness, Sports, open and honest communication,
creativity and art, politics, family, and nature. I'm originally
from the east coast but my family roots in Chicago are deep. I am
as happy sharing good food with good company in the city as I am
hanging out alone watching a good movie. I'm an avid observer of
human behavior. If you want to know more, let's get a drink!
What I’m doing with my life
I previously worked as a sexual health counselor for an online
medical practice (Everyday was different) while earning my MFA in
Film Directing. The job was great when it allowed me to help
people. I quit to focus on shooting my thesis film.
My main passion is independent filmmaking. I also hope to begin
teaching undergraduate film students.
I’m really good at
Holding a conversation. Really, is there anything worse than a one
way conversation in which you feel like you're doing all the work
to keep the dialogue going? I will never have a lack of things to
inquire about. I'm a very inquisitive person. I'd try to think of
something wittier to say here but....oh well.
The first things people usually notice about me
Are that I'm friendly, honest and sincere. But seriously, I could
write anything here, so why not just find out for yourself. ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I always feel a lot of pressure in this part to show just how
cultured and enlightened I am. Instead, I'm going to list just one
item for each category as a sampling, and then the rest can be
asked about if you're curious.
Book - Great Gatsby
Movie - The Big Lebowski
TV Show - Six Feet Under
Music - Ocote Soul Sounds
Food - I'll try anything once
The six things I could never do without
Movies, Music, Pets, Hot Dogs, Sports, Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stories and storytelling.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either relaxing at home or out having a few drinks with family
