I am currently living in Bushwick and managing/residing in a rehearsal studio. This job is amazing! I'm surrounded by creative people, I get free rent, and I can rehearse at 3 in the morning. I still co-run that company I talk about below, but I have a much smaller role than I used to. I began managing a small Art and Music newspaper based in Brooklyn. (I LOVE this project, but it takes up so much time!!) Finally my band is finally beginning to play around NYC.)
We now return you to your regularly scheduled and outdated profile:
"'There's got to be some kind of way out of here,' said the joker to the thief."
Just moved here from Seattle after running away from the circus (literally). I have been part of OKC for years and have met some truly amazing people as well as seen far too many pictures of genitalia through this site. I hope OKC does the same for me in the Big Apple!
...the meeting cool people part, not the genitalia.
My goal in the one life that I have is to eventually be able to write a badass biography.
I'm the sort of person that unfortunately has a very hard time finding satisfaction in this world. (Did you just get the Rolling Stones stuck in your head too?) *herm* Some people would call that ADD.
In a perfect world I would be a professional Musician/Actor/Aerialist/Juggler/Actor/Travel Blogger/Philanthropist/Community Organizer/Dumpster Diving Gutter Punk/Parkour expert/Dancer/Ninja Assassin Who still has time to enjoy a night in with his XBox & NetFlix account with a bottle of Scotch… While I'm dreaming I also want to be able to use the Force.
I have been described as a "Dabbler," I think I like that. I have traveled around the world and can never seem to hold the same job for longer than a year tops before moving onto something new. Most recently I worked in a circus dinner theater in Seattle called Teatro ZinZanni as a dancer and waiter. As far as day jobs go, it was pretty amazing, but after visiting NY last summer and getting a taste of all this beautifully artistic and chaotic city has to offer I decided that this is where I need to be. I had come to a point in my life where I had very little holding me in place, so a month later I packed my bags and drove across the country.
I am a performer by nature, and I have always felt most fulfilled and sleep the most soundly when I am creating and performing art that moves me. Primarily I am a Musician (Vocals/Guitar...Piano very poorly) and I have been trying to focus my energies into this pursuit, however I also plan on hitting up auditions for spiffy looking productions, continue training with aerial, and booking myself out as a juggler. I had hoped to throw myself head first into the music scene here in NY, but a month after moving here I broke my leg pretty badly. (I won't go into the story, but it involved ninjas and alligators wielding laser rifles.)
"A month after embarking on my New York adventure I surfaced from a pain killer induced daze to the sound of my new roommate at the Harlem Hospital screaming for the nurse to change his bedpan. 'This is going well,' I muttered to myself." -Excerpt from future biography
To fund all these aspirations I formed a small business that manages various properties around the city. It allows me to ride my bicycle a lot and gives me very flexible hours so it's perfect.
Books and Movies. Once again, pretty eclectic. I have a special love for Fantasy and Sci-fi though. I also have a fetish for Post-Apocalyptic books and movies. It doesn't even matter if it's a horrible storyline, I love the genre.
Family(blood or otherwise)
a good book
Oh yeah, and I was born with one more lumbar vertebrae than every other human. My mutant power is that I am an inch taller than I would normally be!
My Approach to Dating:
I'm not looking for a soulmate. Nothing would make me happier than to meet someone with whom I could fall helplessly and mutually in love for the rest of my life with, I just think that might only exist in Disney films. I enjoy dating and meeting new people. I've never been in a polyamorous relationship, but the thought of trying this structure makes a lot of sense to me. I'm not against monogamy either, but I'm not one to enter into a committed relationship lightly.
More important to me than how hip, intellectual, quirky, artistic, or how well you look in a bikini is that you possess a kind, open, and giving nature. Though an artistic, smart lady who looks good in a bikini is definitely a bonus.
Did you really read all that?!
