I grew up in New York so living here for me can be seen as failure to leave the nest. The amazing, over-priced, odd smelling nest with the best food in the world that I can't afford. (no, I don't still live with my parents. I have a job and an apartment and pay rent like a real boy)
I invented the Brawl Crawl. (see below)
Also: Waiting tables. Shocker there.
Driving while lost.
Climbing fire escapes with a beer in one hand.
Putting words together.
Alleviating tense situations.
Elevating immense situations.
Storytelling (see below)
Making an omelette.
Weaving through the crowds of gawkers, onlookers and loiterers who insist on populating my city. Oh, but don't worry, I don't mean you. You're cool.
My eyes are green. It takes them a bit longer to notice my nearly perfect eye brows.
