My self-summary
I'm a Brooklyn artist. I write (was recently published as a co-author! huzzah!) and act (stage mostly). Been in the City for some years now, but originally a desert rat back in the Arizona sun. I came here why all come here, because it's the greatest city in the world! Actually, someone told me the very first weekend I was here, many a year ago, that New York is the Best and the Worst. This little piece of advice has always rung true. So, I perform at local fiction/poetry readings, teach writing/lit, act when time and auditions are in my favor, and occasionally tend to my friends' dogs.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing everything with my life! Okay, I'm trying to promote myself as an actor/writer, while making a living teaching college students how to write more good. I hang with friends when we all have time, go to various events when time/money allow, and trudge forward like everyone else. But mainly, I'm enjoying it.
I’m really good at
Cooking new recipes! Or just making something up. It's all about the spices, you know!

Conversations. The real art is listening.

Words with Friends. That's debatable, especially if I go SEVEN turns without one vowel.

Finding excitement in new adventures and people. That's what life is all about, isn't it?
The first things people usually notice about me
My red/strawberry blonde curls. Even when I have shorter hair, these babies shine!

That, or my baritone voice. I get noticed for this quite often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hunter S. Thompson helped me become a writer. And I don't mean just watching the movie version of Fear & Loathing. Hell's Angels, Fear & Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72, Curse of Lono, and all his many many letters are all just fantastic.

Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Juno Diaz, Roberto Bolano, Michael Chabon, Chinua Achebe, Lewis Warsh, Akilah Oliver, John Ashbery, Frank O'hara, Jack Keroac, William S. Burroughs, even Allen Ginsberg, Mary Shelley, Isaac Asimov, John Fante. . .these are the authors that I can think of to mention here. There are more, of course, many many more.

Love me some Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Walking Dead, Doctor Who, and saw the last few episodes of this season's Top Chef Masters and So You Think You Can Dance. Yeah I did.

Oh movies. Yes, movies are fantastic as well. I have no idea what ones to put here, as I enjoy way too many, so, well, I recently quoted Office Space, Ghostbusters, Forrest Gump, Rookie of the Year (Did he just say funky butt-loving?!). . .these change periodically.
Six things I could never do without
Thoughts. And other such things.

Other people. That would suck.

A heart. For obvious reasons.

Entertainment. Fortunately, I can find that most anywhere.

Big blankets on cold nights. Never knew their importance in the desert.

Communication/Expression. I'd be out of all my jobs without 'em.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next.

Used to dwell on the past. That ended.
On a typical Friday night I am
With my friends, possibly watching netflix, or if I'm feeling adventurous exploring the streets of this great city!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is a silly cagetory. What's the thrill of meeting new people if you already know the punch? Like reading the second to last page of a book first.

I'll save this one for when asked.
You should message me if
you like confidence and humility, long talks and silence, loud places and getting away from it all, and other such wonderful dichotomies.
The two of us
