My self-summary
Argentine-American theatre artist enjoying most things to great amounts. A romantic who doesn't romanticize.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching. Making plays. Directing plays. Talking about immigration and history in accessible fashions to all sorts of people (at the tenement museum). Reminiscing about when New York was dangerous and fun and the east village smelled strange and CBGBs wasn't a John Varvatos. Thinking about la revolución but then also thinking about dinner, or old tom gin.
I’m really good at
playing piano (except after 10 when it wakes my neighbors)
taking a guitar and playing ridiculously embarassing 90s songs by request (no seriously).
finding delicious restaurants/bars
cooking, and enjoying cooking. and a burgeoning mixologist...
directing large groups of people through intricate theatrical blocking or across narrow lower east side streets
writing weird but accessible and humorous philosophical and political theatre...
The first things people usually notice about me
tallish, my passion, enthusiasm, earnest-ness?

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think too much. Aesthetics. Politics. the state of the world? Theatre, Theatre in NYC, why am I involved in a dying art form, Latinamerican history/identity/getting mad at US involvement in Latinamerica, urbanization, immigration - dialectics, social change, the left, the absence of a real left wing in this country...and then you think about thinking and it all just becomes a mess.
On a typical Friday night I am
not here.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
you'll have to ask...
You should message me if
You don't think there should be "oughts" at the end of profiles like this. I figure by now you'd have made up your mind either way...
The two of us
