Former Entertainer/ DJ/ Producer. Now Entrepreneur & Store Manager
I recently relocated to Auburn, WA. for my day job. Nothing terribly exciting, retail management. But the money is good and I like the adventure. I am an Atlanta native and have a love/hate relationship with the city. I am very much a city boy. I did live outside Denver for a while and would love to go back. I have worked professionally in theatre for over a decade. I have been a dj on and off for the past 14 years. I also hosted an award winning radio show. Recently I have discovered obstacle racing having completed 4 races in 13 months.
Back in March, two friends and I launched BookCase.Club. A monthly, book subscription service.
What I’m doing with my life
Having recently completed a Masters degree, I have worked a great deal in the arts and nonprofits. During the day I manage the Auburn location for a small chain of bookstores. In the past I have worked as Director of Outreach for a non-profit theatre as well as a DJ and Event Manager.
I love business and hope to one day be Artistic Director of a theatre company.
I’m really good at
Keeping busy. Some call me a workaholic. My relocation now offers
me a small amount of free time, so I am rediscovering my hobbies.
The first things people usually notice about me
People tend to notice my hair, or lack their of, depending on what
part of the year.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love sci fi and historical books. I also read a lot of books on
leadership and entrepreneurship.
Music: Being a dj, I listen to everything. I hosted a steampunk
radio show and play a lot of world music. But i also have a spot in
my heart for old school hip hop, cheesy pop, and techno.
Love theatre. Enough said.
The six things I could never do without
Phone: I have 4 email accounts and average about 150 emails a
Tablet: Same as above.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to improve not only my life but those of the people around me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Since moving to Auburn, not much. Back in Atlanta I was frequently out spinning at a bar or just being a general entertainer. Do not, be mistaken, I am neither a bar rat or a party boy. Just an entertainer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My music library ranges from "you have to hear this" to "please
don't judge me."
You should message me if
are a fan of obscure books, movies, arts, music, etc. Also, if you
are willing to listen to me uber geek about theatre and scifi. I
enjoy it when people geek out over topics they love.
