I am an artist and educator who is fortunate enough to be working steadily in both professions. My acting career is based primarily out of the NY area, I'm also an adjunct professor, teaching various courses at several local NJ Universities; finally, my brother and I manage some rental properties we own in PA.
My humor is off-the-cuff, dry, and sometimes inappropriate; The word "sardonic" has been thrown in my direction...all I know is, people laugh (mostly).
You are likely trying to gesture in agreement right now but having difficulty doing so as your sides are, no-doubt hurting from all the laughter so far...my apologies; I can't help it...I'm just innately hilarious...it's a curse.
Health and fitness are important to me as I exercise regularly: weights, cardio, kick-boxing as well as the occasional yoga class (I admit, I need to increase my practice).
As I’ve gotten older (hold on, may I use the word "mature" instead? yes..that sounds better), my idea of “fun” has shifted a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I love going out and letting loose with the best of them; but I’ve learned, at least for me, it’s about WHO your with, not necessarily WHERE you are – you know? Subsequently, the idea of staying in, watching a movie and cooking, (a bit of a novice, but learning - I've acquired quite the "bachelor menu" i.e. my healthy pizza, healthy chili, etc.) or ordering in, can be just as awesome as going out and getting crazy.
"OMG! How is this guy still single?!?!?" you MUST be asking yourself (that's called sarcasm).
Truth is, in addition to the aforementioned career change late in my 20's (I used to work in the political world in Washington, DC), I was engaged for some time coming out of grad school.
So yes, I've had my share of serious relationships but alas, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
We can talk more on that, if you like. The point is, I'm still looking, and very open to finding something significant.
Maybe it'll happen here...?
Maybe I’m a bit of dork...?
I think I may have heard that word thrown in my direction before….if "dork" means unconventional? then yes. And if "unconventional" means that I'd rather see a show or movie over a sporting event, or go to a museum or listen to live jazz vs. staring at 20 HDTV's at a sports bar, then definitely; I have embraced my dork-ness!
I've done a fair share of traveling (been to pretty much every state in the US, some of Europe, Canada and Mexico), mostly for school or work. I am just finishing a gig that's taken me to West Palm Beach, Fl, in fact.
However, I haven't had a "real vacation" in quite a long time (however, I did treat myself to a couple of days to the Keys while in Florida for a recent acting gig...pretty awesome!).
I'd like to travel more...there's so much to see out there that I just haven't allowed myself to do it. I've been catering this fantasy of a 3-4 week EuroRail trip throughout Europe. "Next summer," I keep saying to myself. Maybe I'm holding off, secretly waiting to go with someone....who knows?
