Yeah, thats right I just quoted a cartoon. It is the best way to describe me.
I grew up in Georgia. I consider Savannah my home. I am the son of Cuban immigrants and yet a Georgia boy born and bred. I am close to my family and friends. Surrounding oneself with good company is the great quest of ones life. I am also a man of faith. My parents raised me in the church and taught me to question everything. My faith is mine and do not force it on others, but it is a big part of who I am and that I will not change.
I moved out to Los Angeles in January of 2007 and am still finding my way around. I love to act and write and so came out here to pursue my dream. I love the arts, almost all of them. I will dance, perhaps not well, but what I lack in skill I more than make up for with enthusiasm.
I love to go out. I am a social creature. Whether its a movie, a bar, a karaoke club or just about anything else, I love to go out. I also love to stay home. I will cook an excellent dinner, cozy up on the couch and watch a movie.
Movies and TV are passions of mine. I have a tendency to quote them. I love history and science. I am a nerd and I read text books for fun. But most importantly I try to live by this advice, a teacher once told me. "Take the work seriously, but never under any circumstances take yourself seriously."
I am a southern gentleman, a goof, and unafraid of making an ass of myself.
Learning is another great passion of mine. History and English are my favorite areas of study and will jump at any chance to learn more.
I am also a practicing artist. I work freelance as a filmmaker and photographer.
I am a wonderful storyteller. As a writer I have learned the craft af painting images with words. That said, there is nothing like hearing one of my stories in person. I talk with my hands and have been known to reenact parts. Its alot of fun.
I am also an excellent cook. There are few things I enjoy more than preparing and serving a meal to those I love. You haven't lived until you've had my Chicken Parmesan.
The last thing I will brag about is my ability to have a good time. Regardless of my setting or occupation, I will find a way to enjoy myself. If its no fun why bother being there.
As far as books go, I read mostly text books. I love anything about History, particularly early American History. I am also a huge fan of plays, Shakespeare in particular.
As to movies, the list would be too long to put here but I will give you a few, just please remember the list is vastly incomplete. A few Good Men, Ghostbusters, Empire Records, American History X, Fight Club, Charlie Wilson's War, Pirate Radio, Blues Brothers, The Three Amigos, Center Stage, Iron Man.
When it comes to music my taste varies wildly. I love classic rock, rock, pop rock, classical, opera, folk, crooner, funk, disco, and so many more. The determining factor is almost always my mood.
And as to food. I love food. Sushi is usually my favorite but again it depends my mood.
