My self-summary
Okay...well I'm a self-employed, small business owner in his mid-30's who loves to have a good time and loves to grab a few drinks and get a little crazy but I can also have a lot of fun just lounging around watching TV or going to the movies. I'm extremely friendly and outgoing and I can adapt to pretty much any environment and be comfortable just about anywhere. I love to poke fun at people and tease them (in a good-natured way, never mean) and I love to be made fun of in return. I can't stand people who take themselves too seriously and can't laugh at their own ridiculousness (which we all have).

As for a little of my backstory, I was born in Queens and raised on Long Island. I went to film school with the hope of breaking into movies as a writer/director. I made a few films and was the most part a failure. On a lark I moved into theater and found success there. I've had a great run over the past five years in the off-off-Broadway market. I've had three of my plays pubished and they all have been produced in numerous cities. One was even produced several times in Australia.

Although I've written some dramas, I'm much more comfortable writing comedy and that's where I've had most of my success. (Does that mean I'm funny? I hope so)
What I’m doing with my life
As I mentioned, I co-own a small business, which pays the bills but I am also a writer. Although I've found most of my success in theater, well, all of it actually, I am also a screenwriter and have recently begun writing essays and commentaries.

It is possible, however unlikley, that you've heard of one or two of my shows. My first play "Angry Young Women In Low Rise Jeans With High Class Issues" has been produced 6 times in NY, twice in Los Angeles, twice in Sydney, Australia and once in Brisbane, Australia. It's also been published by Samuel French Inc.

My second show, "All Aboard the Marriage Hearse" has played twice in NY, once in LA and once even in Wisconsin.

I do love writing for live theater, especially comedy. It is such a great feeling to see a room full of people laugh at something you wrote. On the other hand, it's also an awful feeling to see them sit silently when they hate it! Fortunately, that doesn't happen very often.

Ideally, I would love to make a living as a writer, preferably making movies but I do love theater and television so I'd be happy doing anything. I just love to write.
I’m really good at
I like to think I'm really good at making people laugh and showing people a good time. I have no problem carrying on a good conversation. And if I'm having a conversation with someone who can talk, I can do that for hours.

I'm also really good at karaoke. Well, I guess that depends on your definition of good. If your definition of good is someone with a nice singing voice, then I suck. But if your definition of good is going up there without inhibition and tearing it up and having fun, I'm good.

I'm a good drinker. I can hold my liquor and I never get out of hand or rude or disrespectful and I never get "beer muscles."

I'm a lousy at bowling but who gives a damn about bowling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told it's my smile and my eyes. (I hope that's a good thing)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As a former film student I have lots of favorite movies. The original "Rocky" jumps right to the top of the list along with the original "Arthur." I do love "Casablanca" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," Woody Allen's "Manhattan" and many others.

As far as TV goes, I"m not too crazy about anything that's on now. I am a huge fan of the original "Law and Order", I could watch 100 episodes in a row of that. I love "Seinfeld" and "Cheers" and I do enjoy "The Middle" and "The Big Bang Theory."

I love pretty much all music. I can enjoy just about everything in its time and place. I can enjoy some Rihanna or Katy Perry as much as Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd. But my personal all time favorites are Prince, Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne. I've seen them all in concert and they were incredible.
Six things I could never do without
I could never do without the ocean (I thnk I'd always have to live near the ocean), music, cable news shows, sushi, good movies and stupid people (I'd have no career without them. They've given me so much material.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to make funny plays or movies about the things I see going on around me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking to find some good people to have some drinks with and get a little crazy. (just a little)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Mmmm. As a writer, so much of my life is an open book already so I'm not quite sure what's private. I have to think a little more about that.
You should message me if
you have a good sense of humor and you like to kick back, have a couple of drinks, have a good time and you don't take yourself too seriously!
