My self-summary
I moved to Chicago from Austin about a year ago and I'm really digging it so far. I want to experience everything life has to offer me before I get too old to really appreciate it or be too tied down to act on it. This usually means moving every three or four years. Before Austin I went to an acting school in New York City for two years and before that I did the whole childhood and adolescence thing in Louisiana and Central Illinois.

I'm constantly on the search for the next creative project and I love being around creative people. Lately I seem to have been finding a niche in comedy (mostly improv, sketch,and a little bit of stand-up) but I hope to become more involved with theater and film stuff here in Chicago. Somehow playwriting has become a big thing for me and I've been able to have a couple of short things I've written produced. I'm lookingto continue to grow as a person through meeting new people who are very different from me as well as saying yes to whatever I encounter.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing, acting, learning, creating, and working for a fashion wholesaler.
I’m really good at
Retaining a copious amount of useless knowledge on a lot of unrelated topics.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to become comfortable with new people much faster than your average dude. I don't have a whole lot of boundaries and it takes a lot to throw me off guard.

The six things I could never do without
1. Stuff to read
2. A creative outlet
3. Live performances
4. The possibility of the new thing right around the corner.
5. The internet
6. Personal connections with awesome people
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Getting off the internet and do actual things with my day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either seeing a show or recovering from a hectic week by staying at home and watching something on netflix or playing a little xbox.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have absolutely no sense of rhythm.
You should message me if
You're picking up what I'm putting down.
