I'm a songwriter, music teacher/director and a piano bar entertainer (Brandy's Piano Bar). I do tons of musical improv!
I recently moved to Astoria from Manhattan. I finally have a dog and a cat because of my roommates! Wooh! The cat currently likes me far better than the dog, which is a first.
I'm an atheist/humanist, I love vinyls, puppies, roller coasters and that beautiful feeling when you're really into a new book. Running is my favorite way to unknot my mind.
Making a crying toddler smile
Writing/Improvising songs and being silly!
Getting a room of kindergarteners to idolize me
I love No One Belongs Here More Than You by Meranda July, books on philosophy, and...Harry Potter obvi.
Favorite band is an obscure group. Beatles is their name. Check 'em out! Pink Floyd is a close second. Love Billy Joel, Elton John, Marvin Gaye, Carole King, Supertramp, Radiohead, etc.
I love so, so many movies. From absolute, bone-chilling horror to slap-stick nonsense. Also, man oh man do I enjoy tearjerkers.
Shawshank Redemption, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Groundhog Day, Big, Phenomenon, The Lives Of Others, Family Man, The Shining, Wet Hot American Summer, American Psycho, Insidious, 13 Going On 30...
Some of my favorite shows are Dexter, Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad, Bloodline, Stella, Family Guy, and Southpark.
Food! Pizza. Gyoza. And mostly everything else.
Love of all kinds
My closest pals
