Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
OK lets see if it is possible for me to fill this out without
sounding like an ass... I have an great sense of humor, a strong
interest in art and antiques. I have an MFA jewelry and several
pieces of my college school work was purchased by the Oakland
Museum of California for it's collection. I'm italian on my
mother's side and wasp on my father's. I don't care for sports at
all. I enjoy the usual movies, books, music and I appreciate a wide
variety of all these. Music for example I enjoy old school
rap-Public Enemy & N. W. A. , Johnny Cash, Nick Cave, David
Bowie, The Smiths and L.Cohen. I enjoy walking around my city
haunting flea markets and thrifts and spending time with friends. I
don't drink or smoke but don't mind if you do. Same thing with pets
I don't have any unless you count my collection of vintage
taxidermy. I have no tattoos or piercings though I think they look
fine on other people just not for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work part time at an art and antique auction house and part time
at a private school for art and music for children. I teach art to
children around the age of 10 stone carving, ceramics, sculpture
but in my past I have taught all ages from 6 to 80. I also buy and
sell antiques and collectables and I work on my own artwork as
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a large man but very mild mannered. In working with people I
have gotten to seen a great many of them at their very worst.
Throwing fits like children, I strive to never be like them.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
As an artist and a collector I feel like I covet objects more than
the average person and yet working at an auction house has taught
me that there is always more to covet. So I'm going to cheat this
question a little and say that my friends and family are most
important to me and all else can be replaced.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My friends and how easy it is to meet all sorts of wonderful people
when you are in school and if you are lucky you can hold on to some
of them. But eventually they all go spinning off into their own
orbits moving away for family or career reasons. I think it's a
little sad that internet sites like this one have become the way
people meet one other but I suppose if it works then it's hard to
argue with. I'm friends with Damien Hirst on facebook...impressed?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most likely at home watching something on Netflix but occasionally
out at an art opening or movie.
