Music has had a long sexual and romantic relationship with me since I discovered I can play bass and guitar. As a teenager I started a punk rock band and toured most of the east coast playing bars, vfw's, parties and art shows. When I was twenty I moved to San Francisco because of its thriving music scene and formed a new band. We toured the state and were signed to an indie label but I wanted to focus on my education and left the band.
I love comedy, comedians, and generally people who are comfortable with being wildly unreasonable, illogical, or inappropriate. I like to act absurd to try and make people laugh and also use verbal play to create fictional scenes.
I worked closely with a cult director Lloyd Kaufman in New York City to earn my independent filmmaking chops. Soon I discovered I belonged on the west coast and left my home planet in Connecticut which I will never return to.
Anything relating to phenomena that are apparently inexplicable by natural laws such as psychics, shamans, ufos, mystics, and the paranormal hold my interest. There was a period in my life were I was obsessed with reading books on quantum mechanics to comprehend the meaning of alternate realties/dimensions that mainstream science has difficulty explaining using the rational constructs of current understanding of reality. I wanted to expierence alternate realties for myself, which are often described when you enter altered states of consciousness. After taking a world religions class in college I was connected to a shaman through my professor and explored these worlds.
Physical activity is extremely valuable to me so I practice vinyasa yoga, run, and work out when I have free time.
