My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd wanted to be an actor since before I can remember. It was just always there. I convinced my working-class parents to take out a loan so that I could attend Interlochen Arts Academy as an acting major for my senior year of high school. I majored in it in college, did it for seven years here in Chicago, got a masters in it, did it in Boston for several years then moved back here. Then, I decided that I craved some normalcy in my life and will be attending UIC beginning this Fall. I'll be working on my second masters, this one in special ed with an emphasis on low-income, urban schools. I've given up trying to act professionally and will now only do non-union shows at night after work. There's no better place than Chicago to do that. Teaching has become a passion along with acting. Thank goodness I finally feel driven to do something I can actually make a living from!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Sort of just chillin' until I start school. Since I'm about to embark on something awesome and challenging, I really don't mind admitting that I am, indeed, being a lazy bum for a minute. Fitness is also a hobby of mine. I eat healthy (with the exception of the occasional junk-food-binge-frenzy) and work out a lot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Acting, teaching, being understanding and compassionate, laughing at myself and generally being a sweetheart (most of the time).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Once they find out I'm 37 it's the fact that I look ridiculously young for my age, thank you very much.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The musics - Savages is the greatest rock and roll band in the world right now. Godspeed You Black Emperor is my favorite band overall. Sonic Youth is my favorite rock and roll band and the old favorites from my youth who will forever hold a special place in my heart are PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Kristin Hersh and Mike Patton. I love electronic music as well (Flux Pavilion, Knife Party, The Knife, Delta Heavy, Caspa and Rusko all come to mind) A lot of strange/experimental stuff (John Zorn, Annie Gosfield, Sonic Youth's SYR series, etc.) Let's see . . . if I put itunes on shuffle the first ten things that happen are; The Breeders, Bis, Outkast, Massive Attack, The Red Krayola, Kid Koala, Slayer, Heart, Sugar and Gary Numan. I tend to tell people that if it's noisy and annoying I'll probably like it.

The books - After years of avoiding it, thinking it was all about corny, cliche super-hero crap, I've grown to LOVE graphic novels. That's all I read lately. My favorites so far are Daniel Clowes' Daniel Boring, Will Eisner's The Contract With God Trilogy, Osamu Tezuka's Buddha, the graphic novel adaptation of Battle Royale and Dennis Cooper/Keith Mayerson's Horror Hospital Unplugged. I'm currently reading Hack/Slash Omnibus Vol 3. As far as regular 'ol authors go, we're talkin' Irvine Welsh, Bukowski, Burroughs, Henry Miller - they're the first that pop to mind.

The movies - Harmony Korine! Werner Herzog! David Lynch! Todd Solondz! Paul Thomas Anderson! Stanley Kubrick! Recently saw Koyaanisqatsi and if you care at all about film you should too. Recently re-watched Barton Fink and Fargo, confirming my belief that they are the Coen Brother's best.

The Foods - Standard, American, breakfast foods are my favorite foods. My latest favorite place for breakfast is West Town Bakery and Diner. I'm also always wondering what else I might try putting Nutella and/or peanut butter on - lately it's waffles and pancakes.

The Art - Pop Surrealism! Yosuke Ueno! Mark Ryden! Haoto Natori! Francis Bacon!

Television Programs - Breaking Bad, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Tim and Eric - Awesome Show Great Job!, Frisky Dingo, Eastbound and Down, The L Word, Twin Peaks, 30 Rock, Louie, The Office, American Horror Story, Off the Air, Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Check It Out with Dr. Steve Brule (jesus christ, this last season was dark, wasn't it!?)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how my future is finally certain.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually just hanging out with my roommates. How creative.
