Divorced a couple years, now but, in reality, single a lot longer than that. I have a daughter who is my life. She still calls me daddy, but slips into dad a little more these days, which makes me cringe. She's approaching teenager status, and it makes me more and more nervous every day. I know it’ll come to an end eventually, but for now, I’m still a hero in her eyes.
I’m pretty goofy and silly. I love to laugh and make others laugh, as well. As a performer, I say that whether they’re laughing at me or with me, at least they’re laughing.
I’m bigger than I want to be, and used to be, but I’m working on it. It takes more work at 45 than it did at 25. I'm getting there, though. I'm in the gym 3-5 time's a week, but I go during my lunch at the gym at work, so it doesn't interfere with the rest of life.
I’m pretty nerdy and geeky. I still have a soft spot for comic books, sci-fi, and fantasy.
I sing. Not like other people who say “I sing”, but I really sing. People pay a lot of money to hear my voice. My daughter seems to be the only one not terrible impressed by that. I perform onstage around town. I used to do it more, but my daughter has to approve of the time commitment now-a-days. I still try to do 1 or 2 a year.
I do have a steady day job to support my theatre habit, so no worries about that.
I have a group of friends from college that I hang with regularly. We have a trivia team and we pretty much dominate the south side. The gang gets together once or twice a week to play trivia (Mellow mushroom, for sure, then one of a few other places). We're always looking for more players, so feel free to join us and prepare to be dazzled by our brilliance. Once a week, or so, we get together to play games (board games – current favorites include Ticket To Ride, 7 Wonders, Dominion, Pandemic, and whatever else looks fun), and once a month for poker night. There's always room for more at the game table.
Treading the boards when I can (performing onstage). Singing constantly. It will help if you like to be sung to, because you're likely to get it either way.
Movies: Star Wars, Star Trek, any comic book movie, any sci-fi movie. Thanks to my daughter, I’m up to date on all the Disney Chanel movies. Hangover (though Hangover 2 made me a little uncomfortable), Borat. I’ve only ever walked out of 1 movie because it was so bad…
Shows (TV): Dr Who, Big Bang Theory, Warehouse 13, Burn Notice, Royal Pains, Leverage, Torchwood, Suits, How The States Got Their Shapes, Storage Wars (about the only reality show I can take), Glee, Falling Skies, Firefly - anywhere and everywhere I find it. Lots of Disney Chanel and Nickelodeon with my daughter.
Shows: (Broadway): Les Mis is my all time favorite. Favorite I’ve ever been in: Sweeney Todd or Secret Garden.
Food: I’m not too adventurous of a diner, but I’m trying to get better.
