My self-summary
NAPPY HUGH HERE! Ready? Okay so the hair's not nappy, but at least there's hair! I'm not afraid to post the fact that thirty years ago, I was two years out of UCLA's Theater Dept - like Tim Robbins - when a truck served in front of me and slammed on his brakes. I sustained a brain injury My iq recently tested well above average, and I have published several essays and photographs. I'm 56 but I can't fix my age, so I'll talk about what matters to me. Photography is magic. The way my life comes out through my lens tells the story of the global (4 hemispheres) sights that have most impressed me. I adore the energy feedback from a stand up audience. I'm preparing to visit severely ill hospital patients, when they want it. It's not easy writing even five minutes of jokes, but the laughter I get beats any of the one or two ( :P ) drugs Ive sampled and it helps the universe.
What I’m doing with my life
Working to help underserved populations smile and laugh with stand up performed in correctional facilities and hospitals. Im also getting ready to open a comedy club in Manhattan.
I’m really good at
Stand up comedy, inspirational talks, honesty, when I'm not busy being the greatest person ever, humility, sailing, skiing and picking out good fruit and vegetables. I'm also good at finding reasons to travel, where to go and getting there.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm in shape, more often than not, that have hair on my head and have a lot of fun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
EB White's Essays. Most PG Wodehouse, Most Hemingway shorts and fiction, especially The Sun Also Rises, The Road by Cormac MaCarthy, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides, The Angel Esmeralda by Dom Delillo, Edward Lear's Book of Nonsense and The Jumblies, illustrated by Edward Gorey. Tunes: Louis A, Ella, the Stones, the Beatles, Biggie, Bach, Schubert's & Mendelssohn's octets with a cool glass of Sancerre, smoked salmon and brie on Carr's unsalted wafers.
Six things I could never do without
My cameras, young children's laughter, the ocean, Maine's June songbirds, cultural options.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food. Travel, travel and food. Rome and Paris.
On a typical Friday night I am
Thanking yet another award giver, like the Nobel, or Pulitzer Prize Committee. On an off week the Academy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sorry, but discretion, like the proverbial cat's got my tongue.
You should message me if
My pic and words interest you and the sky is blue, behind the clouds.
The two of us
