My self-summary
Some call me "weird" or "eccentric," I prefer "quirky." But don't worry, I'm not so aloof and out there that I'm unreachable; I still have a foot and five toes firmly planted on terra firma.

I consider myself laid-back, and I do my best to be patient, understanding, and forgiving with other people. Then again, it takes a lot to get me mad or annoyed, so I often don't have to exercise such qualities.

I love pets. I have a mini-dachshund with red fur, and his name is Duncan. :) I used to have a cat and a kingsnake, but the cat ran away on me and I accidentally killed the snake. :,(

My goal in life is to be a successful film actor. I love all media of acting (film/TV, theatre, voice), but I realize that I'll have the most success as a film actor. I don't really want to be famous or a celebrity, I just want to pay the bills and raise a family as a working actor.

My sports of choice: Football (college and NFL; Roll Tide, Who Dat?! and Go Panthers!), and mixed martial arts.

I'm willing to try anything once, as long as it's not illegal. I've taken to heart the phrase, "Variety is the spice of life."
What I’m doing with my life
Graduated from grad school, resettled in NOLA to break into the local film scene. My day job is that I'm a mule carriage driver in the French Quarter. So, I give tours in a carriage that's pulled by a mule (a hybrid between a female horse and a male donkey).
I’m really good at
Joke telling (puns are my specialty)
Brazilian jiu jitsu (I'm currently a blue belt, or 2nd level belt; I got a lot to learn still)
Making quirky observations
Being honest (but I don't have an acid tongue)
Exercising with my kettlebell (it's basically an iron cannonball with a handle; mine weighs 24 kg/52.9 lbs)
The first things people usually notice about me
My looks (much to my chagrin, but I understand)
My eccentricities
My jokes (though I tend not to share 'em with total strangers)
My personability
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: New Testament, Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, Harry Potter series, Shakespeare plays, Anton Chekov plays, history books (I'm a dork, I know. ;) )

Movies: Lord of the Rings (no surprise there), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus, Million Dollar Baby, Gladiator, District 9, Disney animated films, DreamWorks animated films (minus Shark Tale, yuck), some Coen bros. films, various others that don't stink.

Television: Rome, Carnivale, Game of Thrones, Star Trek (TNG, DS9, VOY), Mythbusters, Deadliest Catch, Dual Survival, Futurama, Modern Marvels, high-budget History Channel docs, Regular Show, Robot Chicken.

Music: Classical (Mozart's my favorite composer), New Age (Enya takes the cake), and jazz, a sampling of classic rock (Queen's my favorite rock band), Irish and American folk music, and sea shanties.

Food: I love apple cider, heavy beers, good quality liquors/cocktails, and zesty meats. Basically, anything worth tasting and not heavy on veggies. (Side note: practically the only greens I'll eat are carrots, green beans, peas, and lima beans. I'll stomach raw spinach if it's dipped in peanut butter or honey.)
The six things I could never do without
1) God
2) Family
3) Sleep; you have no idea
4) Theatre/film
5) Alabama/Saints/Panthers football
6) Internet (alas)
7) A job to keep me busy and pay the bills and fun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Friends, theology, Brazilian jiu jitsu techniques, new jokes, stuff that I need to do, lost opportunities, new opportunities, an Irish folk song that I'm trying to memorize.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home, for the moment. Will go out on occasion. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a brony. That means that I'm an adult male fan of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic."
