My self-summary
I'm a mellow guy with a boisterous wit who is trying to maximize fun in all its forms. I've got lots of great friends, I'm confident and opinionated, and I'm pretty close to my immediate family.

At night I actively practice the comedic arts (I am a regular performer in the clubs, bars, and theaters around Philly), and I somehow managed to land a day job where they give me health and dental for making kids happy.

Beer, bacon, basketball, books, my bike, and I play the guitar.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a professional puppeteer. No, seriously. I work in a children's theater and perform puppet shows. It's a great job. I get a salary and I get to be creative every day.

"How the hell did you end up as a puppeteer?" Good question. Glad you asked. My job is a two-sided coin: one side is theater, the other is education.

On the theatrical side I am an owner of a comedic theater company. We have performed weekly improv shows in Old City for the past 10 years.

On the educational side, I used to be a teacher. Education is a passion of mine and now I can pursue it in a unique way.
I’m really good at
I have a high free throw percentage.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, that depends...

Currently I'm rocking a beard. When I rock a beard, the beard is usually the first thing that people notice (hmm... "notice" isn't a strong enough term. "Gape at in wonder and awe" would be more accurate).

When I don't rock a beard, I think the first impression I usually give off (or hope I give off) is that I'm friendly and funny.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love Faulkner, I conquered Infinite Jest, and I'm a big fan of humorous nonfiction like David Sedaris, Sarah Vowell, or Bill Bryson.

Movies: I can get into something ponderous and arty, or I can enjoy a sweet action flick. Top five would probably be: The Original Star Wars Trilogy (which only counts as one), Rushmore, City of God, Pulp Fiction, and Airplane.

Also in the top five (since I have more than five top five) The Princess Bride, Days of Heaven AND Badlands, the first two Godfathers (obviously), Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Blazing Saddles, The Big Lebowski, Raiders (duh), U.H.F. (THE most underrated film in human history), anything that the names Spielberg or Kubrick are associated with, I'll probably be happy with.

Shows: There are too many good shows on right now. I can't follow them all! I love Breaking Bad, the Walking Dead, and Arrested Development. I'm behind on Game of Thrones (so no spoilers). But either The Simpsons seasons 3-9 or the entirety of The Wire is probably my favorite TV of all time.

Music: If it's awesome, I like it. I can listen to pretty much anything.

Food: Yes, please.
The six things I could never do without
My family, my guitar, purdy girls, Lemonheads, my laptop, and bike rides, in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is funny
On a typical Friday night I am
Performing with my comedy troupe. On a typical Saturday night, however, I'd probably be at a bar, a party, a movie, attending a cultural or social gala for super fancy folks who wear monocles, going to see some music, or hitting Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I save all my hair trimmings in jars.

Just kiddin'. I'm normal.
You should message me if
- you are smart and funny and looking for the same.
- you wanna make my day (dudes only occasionally get unsolicited messages sent to us, ladies, so it's nice when you see one in the old inbox. If I seem like a cool guy, drop me a line and I'll be all touched by the nice gesture and shit.)
- you are awestruck by any of the following: Led Zeppelin, Stanley Kubrick, the fact that we landed on the fucking moon, George Carlin, Ben Franklin, outdoor places with bigass bodies of water, early Weird Al Yankovic, animals doin' stuff, puns, or Dr. J
