I decided it was time for a serious overhaul on this thing, seeing as how I have been a way from the site form a while. I still live downtown, work in the bar/restaurant industry, and have a niece. What is new is that I am a member of an indie theatre company, am now in my early 30's, and have a nephew on the way.
I love people, and though I am a shy person at heart, I really enjoy social situations where I get to spend time with people I care about and meet new interesting folks. My family is the core of who I am and I love them dearly, though I don't see them as often as I probably should. (Guilty face) I like good conversations, live music is always kick ass, I really enjoy learning and reading, and I am a video-gamer, and somewhat of a geek. But the fun and funny kind, not the socially inept kind. Yes, I am funny, as an actor I have honed this skill. I promise I will make you laugh, and if you make me laugh, you just got even more awesome than you already are.
That being said, I do have an off-beat sense of humor. (ie. oddball, dark, off the wall, random, offensive), but I get along with almost everyone so don't worry.
I am a kind and gentle man at heart, and if those are qualities you value, you should definitely send me a message.
I am silly, introspective, and empathetic
Honestly though, it is certainly not as pretentious as I feel like I have made it sound. Our shows are always fun and enjoyable. Personal promise there.
Aside from that I am planning on doing the getting an agent and trying my hand at the film/tv world, working as a server to pay the bills, trying my hand at writing (I got me a blog!), and preparing for the next step in my life, whatever that may happen to be.
I'm good at people, understanding, reading and empathizing.
I'm good at talking, and enjoy conversations, from political, to social, to artistic, to silly and pointless, jokey and flirty. It's all fun to me.
I'm good at listening to music, and I do it every day. I love finding new music and seeing new bands, or just good ones.
I'm good at being silly. It's a release for me.
I've got good instincts, and I trust them.
I'm good at video games. It's my generation, baby.
I'm good at randomly guessing the right answers in Trivial Pursuit. And Balderdash. I love me some Balderdash.
I'm a good dancer. For a straight white boy. As long as the room isn't too well lit.
I'm good at giving a hoot about people. I hope you are too.
I'lll have to ask around on that one...texing three friends to ask now...result: 1) Eyes that look directly at people. Genuine. 2)Friendliness and wit. 3) I wear glasses.
