Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an artist, playwright and performer. I have worked with the
same theater company for 14 years as playwright, dramaturgue, and
mentor. I have two degrees in fine art and I create video
installations, books, prints, draw and continue to focus on my work
as I get older.
I am pretty multi-faceted. I am really supportive sensitive,
creative, very serious minded and yet have a good sense of humour
and a very loud laugh that is contagious if you get me going.
I am a "Highly Sensitive Person" which means I need a lot of down
time and creative outlets.
I love nature, hiking and camping. Although I don't do it enough. I
am originally from a rural area in southern Illinois.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write plays and act in them. I make installation art. I also work
with disabled children as an educator and co-colaborator in
I buy sell and collect designer furniture but am not making enough
money. I have entered into the design resale multiple times over
the years to make cash and then quit again to make art.
I have worked mainly in the performing arts but am now shifting
towards installation, video art, and printmaking.
I am a bisexual pansexual queer rights activist. I have been
assisting in organizing bi event at the Center on Halsted. This is
an important aspect of my life as I find it important to help
people who don't fit into the LGBTQIA mainstream.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a really good performer/actor, dramatic writer, and visual
artist; (animation, video, drawing, printmaking) I am sometimes a
great listener and rely on that skill for my work as an educator
and artist. However I have also been known to be a "long talker". I
can be a little OCD at times. I also cook well but really do so
these days only when I have others to cook for.
I can take very complex information and communicate it in a way
that most people will understand.
I love mushroom hunting but have never found "the place" in the
Northern Illinois State Parks. I will try again this spring.
I have a very good eye for designer furniture or purchasing high
end items at estate sales or rumage sales. But I am also trying to
break the habit to focus more on my art work.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am tall and big, in my past life I was a football player and gave
it up for art.
So people have been scared of me because of my size, perhaps it was
the bear hug.
But I really am a gentle giant.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Other than lifes essentials: journal/sketchbook,
a spiritual connection
a good imagination
a sense of humour
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The inner workings of people. The inner workings of myself. Art and
it's function in our culture. Themes in mythology, religion,
psychology, and philosophy and how they can be rendered in visual
narrative and poetic forms.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Seeing a play, performance art, and gallery event.

Ask me anything you want when we meet I am pretty open person but
somethings I prefer keeping closer to my chest.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a kind loving spiritual soulful person. I would love to
find my artistic partner/lover: we inspire each other and bring art
into the world. Like Lou Reed meets Laurie Anderson, or John Cage
meets Merce Cunningham. But you could be of any profession.
If you are queer or an artist and want to be friends.
If you are dedicated to being self aware.
Note: I have a preference for other bisexual, queer, pansexual,
genderqueer and trans people.
