...I make people laugh every weekend at a local improv theatre, but I’m really just trying to make them think. My humor is goofy, cerebral and sometime rather edgy. I don't have an alcohol permit, so I hold no bars. Because, in Mark Twain's and my humble opinion, sacred cows make the best hamburger. Especially if sandwiched between two piping hot buns of scathing social commentary.
I went to college. I’ve gone to grad school. I’m currently working and making people buy stuff they don’t need. Why? Because Capitalism. And it allows me to create. If I couldn't do that I would dead...on the inside...like Dick Cheney.
I love comedy, acting, writing, thinking and creating because it allows me to use a muscle I think too many adults loose as they get older and the rat race over takes them, their imaginations. (Cue After School Special Music.) Perhaps it’s what’s kept me so young at heart. But, that doesn't mean I'm a man-child.
I want to write a comic book about a superhero called Man-Child, tho. And, his faithful companion, Child-Man -- he’s got the strength and speed of a child but the mind and 401k of a man.
That’s just a taste of me, and trust me, there is a lot more than that. I do have a serious side, but I usually only reserve that for when SHIT GETS REAL.
I swear a lot.
I'm trying to become much healthier. I've started to take it very serious and can currently be found sweating my ass off 4-5 days a week at some local L.A. Fitness. I like swimming as my form of cardio and lifting weights.
Other than that, you can find me Improvising, Teaching, hanging out with all the people I neglected when I was in grad school, at the bars and generally having a "Grand Ol' Time." I'm literally up for just about anything and I welcome new suggestions, experiences and activities. I'm currently deciding if I want to take a Salsa class or a Martial Arts class. What do you think?
You can also catch me chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool and shootin' some b-ball outside of the school...The School of Life. Word.
Long form Improv
Laughing at inappropiate moments
Guessing the tittle of movie by only watch a 5 second clip
Sweeping you off your feet
Making you feel special
Making myself seem special ;)
I seem to make friends really easily and people generally seem to like me. I'm a nice guy, but I'm not a "Nice Guy." If that makes any sense, if not then ask me and I'll explain in the most round about way possible...it's a gift.
Movies: The Act of Killing (Holy Shit! This documentary is amazing or "amaze balls" as they're saying these days.)Perfume, Fight Club, Doctor Strangelove, Visionerrs, Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Robocop, A Scanner Darkly, Donnie Darko, Pineapple Express, Total Recall, Wargames, Gummo, Alien series, Prometheus, Batman Trilogy, Dear Zachery: A Letter from a Father to a Son (the saddest movie/documentary I've ever seen), and so many more that I can't honestly remember.
Videogames: Shadow of the Colossus, Borderlands 1&2, Halo, CoD, GTA, Zelda and many, many more. Too many to count and a lot of them old school. You know, when dying in a game was awarded with restarting the whole game all over again and remote controls bounced off the walls.
Television: House, Doctor Who, Futurama, American Dad, Family Guy, Bones, Black Dynamite, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, The Mighty Boosh, Garth Marenghi's Dark Place, The IT Crowd, actually just about all Brit Coms.
Music: Anything but Country and almost all Rap. Examples are as follows: Tool, Mars Volta, Modest Mouse, Ugly Casanova, Puscifer, Mindless Self Indulgence, Ravi Shankar, The Doors, Led Zepplin, Aesop Rock, Paul Simon, BT, The Crystal Method, Daft Punk and many, many more.
Food: Just about everything except asparagus. I love all types of food. Mexican and Sushi are perhaps my favortie, but I also love anything spicy. And, when I say spicy I mean laying your head on the table, crying and regretting the decision, spicy. You know, the type of spicy where your face feels as tho it's melting like the nazi at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
My laptop and iPad
My shoes (they protect my feet)
My pillow (it's heavier than the average pillow)
I also think a lot about how to achieve my next goals.
I've also been told that I don't look my age. Which is great. I love being told I look like I'm 23-26. Yay me.
