My self-summary
I am a programmer-theater artist-philosopher. I program for spending money. But I want to be on stage acting. Or writing or directing or something. I'm Christian, and I'm figuring out what that means. I love getting immersed in a book, but it doesn't happen as often as I like. I love the creative process. I love it when it's chugging along happily, I love it when it's a struggle. I don't love being stuck. Or being vague and foggy. Nevertheless, it's worth it.

I guess I try hard to be honest and up front. The truth of the situation is a fascinating mystery. I love to laugh. Stupid things are fun. To laugh at.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to break into an acting career of some kind. What this means to me is that I do work as a theater artist and I produce that work somewhere so that people see it.

I'm not really that interested in fame or conventional success. It's not about money and it better not just be about affirmation. I know I crave affirmation, we all do. But theater is more than that to me. It's about exploring the fabric of human reality.

So I'm trying to dial down the money engine (programming) a bit in the medium term and give myself more time to explore my passion which is artistic expression. I mean, ideally the work I'd like to produce would amount to a kind of societal soul searching. I want my work to provoke people to open things up and look inside of issues.
I’m really good at
Thought--I think good. It's sort of an addiction, thinking.
The first things people usually notice about me
People often think I'm unusual. They often compliment me on my variety of my interests: for example, that I do analytical/scientific things as well as artistic/emotional things. I've been called a mystic before. Also, a very loyal friend.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, My dinner with andre, Vanya on 42nd street, Hero, Fear and loathing in los vegas, Snatch, The big labowski

Shows: Louis, Game of thrones

Books: The idiot, Tao te ching (stephen mitchell transl.), Love is a dog from hell, Lolita, Catch-22
A host of acting theory books, most specifically: The presence of the actor (Joe Chaikin), and Stanislavski in rehearsal, and At work with Grotowski on physical actions

Food--I like good food. I'm not a foody, but I'll eat pretty much anything.
Music--Favorite bands: Pixies, The national, Of montreal. I'm trying to learn about classical right now. I like some classical.
