My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Recently moved to Barcelona (first time in Europe!) from San Francisco after living there for 14 years. Have been living in BCN for 2 1/2 months. Attended SFSU as a literature major with an emphasis on linguistics. Was recently certified as a TEFL educator. Founded and hosted two reading series for writers, one of which goes strong to this day. Worked as a book-seller, an intern editor at McSweeney's, an event photographer for bands and burlesque shows, a butcher (3 years), a seller of fine wine and spirits (4 years) a bartender, a cook, a barista, a video editor, a film-set gaffer, an actor, and a composer of electronic music (Decoy Trigger on Soundcloud)—yes, my interests, obsessions and need for creative, often provocative, experiences squared me among a variety of roles during my SF years. Now I want to simplify and just enjoy tutoring English.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning more Spanish day-by-day. Looking for new friends here in BCN.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Collaborating/brain storming art and writing projects.

I can provide boatloads of ideas if others can provide a structure—behind every fountain is an architect.

Cooking's a thing I do and I do it well. Yet, without company, I resort to fulfilling nutritional needs, forsaking the development of complex flavors. With company at hand, I'll work the kitchen for hours—I used to be a cook (two years) back in the US, and this experience lives in my veins.

Collages: I've had a slew of gallery shows and sell my work. The process of making one brings an odd peace to my conduct.

Photo/videography: over 7 years of event photography experience, and I've worked the camera in 12 different films.

It seems that I write at least one film script a year. The most recent one was bought and production of the film is in full-swing right now. I also like to write short fiction, poetry/prose poems, experimental work, and the odd essay here and there. When I respond to my friends' messages, I write in complete paragraphs with proper punctuation (a standard I don't expect from others—it's just my way).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Taller than most.

Vampiric canines (pointy teeth, though slightly goofy in length).

More likely than not a hat rides upon my head.

Some say when I'm listening to music on headphones while walking among the public that I look like I'm heading to a funeral. That may be a fitting description but it's far from reality: it's more of a non-expression as my attention is focused elsewhere, that is, on the music. Really, I'm enjoying the sound!

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
amidst unexpected, sometimes intrepid, company, or at home doing my at-home stuff. Both options are good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Swordfish.
