I have driven around the country. It only took a few years. Living in a car, sleeping on beaches. Hopping trains.
I lived in Hawaii for awhile.
UK, Switzerland, Germany, France.
I've back packed throughout Thailand.
I often get the itch to just get up and go somewhere, anywhere.
I grew up skateboarding and snowboarding.
I've been know to crash the occasional wedding. And have the families love me!
I'm a huge dork.
"What the hell is that?" right, well in a nut shell
(look I'm in a nut shell) basicaly artists bring me there ideas and I make them a reality. Im a problem solver, people come to me when the idea makes sense in there mind but falls short from reality. I help them acutalize their visions and I love that.
I also plan and over see large scale instalations. From public projects, setups in major institutions and private collections around the city and world wide. Its an amazing job that lets me travel alot and become friends with some great and interesting people.
Losing my keys
crossing things off lists
Finding my keys
Realizing I probably skiped a few things on said list.
returning lost items to their rightful owners an having be mad at me for it.
I'm a very handy and resourceful guy. You need something built or fixed I'm your guy.
I love spending time rummaging through flea markets, antique and junk stores. Scavaging for vintage photos, curiosities, old photos, beat up old taxidermy mounts. Day trips to museums where I might spend hours in one area just to sketch.
Spending crazy amounts on My dog. He is a the boy in a bubble, he has crazy allergies. He really is allergic to almost everything, which means I must administer shots to him once a week. his main vet is a dermatologist. He has a ton of energy and an active brain so training him is a win/win.He chases his tail when he's happy... He's always happy.
I really love the "Stuff you should know" podcast
( I'm addicted )
Books: I read alot of biographies. The passions of Michel Foucault, paddy wacked by T.J. English, the life of William Bebee, A pirate of exquisite mind - the life of William Dampier. Miles Davis's autobiography was amazing.
I read alot of art and science books.
Chuck Palahniuk, Alex Garland, Neal Cassidy's The first third was a inspiration. Hemingway. Faulkner. I recently finished Drive which was really good. Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian is the best piece of fiction I've read in a few years.
Movies: I'm a huge movie guy, list could go on. True romance, resivor dogs. Band of outsiders. contempt, most of Godard's films. Bogart, Charlie Chaplin, jimmy Stewart, and the little rascals are good any time. Big Alfred Hitchcock fan, north by northwest, vertigo, rear window are among favorites. There is a game I love to play, where you briefly discribe a movie, however you want. Leaving the other person to guess your film. Try me.
It's the breaks in the norm that make it special.
I would be fine with out the majority of material goods.
I may be out on on missions of exploration. I have a tendency to get obsessed with things for short periods of time and emerse my self to learn everything I can. Spontaneity is the key to happiness.
I do work alot, so late nights, long hours and Art openings and after parties comes with the job. So well I'm usually out on Friday nights, sometimes a good book or a movie is a beautiful thing.
You will never find me "clubbing".
