My self-summary
Energetic, creative, lover of stories, science, and a good laugh.

I am a science-minded theater maker. I'm a dog person, but some of my favorite humans are cat people. I like new ideas, exploring new places, and bringing people together for a game of 1000 blank white cards.

Random facts about me: I went to a physical theater / mime school in Paris, I have worked as a Lego Robotics teacher, I am a lover of animals and the outdoors, and I've toured the world as a puppeteer.

On the muppet spectrum I'm somewhere between Kermit the Frog and Gonzo the Great.
What I’m doing with my life
Dogsledding! I actually got to do this, this past weekend, and it was the amazing. (see Instagram post for video)

For the past 3 years I've made my living as a theater-maker (creator, director, performer) I have a company based in NYC and another company based in Norway. That said, NYC is where I grew up, where my family and friends are and where I spend most of my time.

I think often about balancing my creative career with financial stability, as I would to be able to support a family in the not-so-distant future.

When I'm not working intensely on a project, I'm teaching myself to write code, catching up with friends, doing yoga, or working on home improvement projects.
I’m really good at
Lifting very short paper bags off the floor with my mouth while standing on one leg (AKA: Great Blue Heron). Listening. Figuring out how to make things work. I'm qualified to lead caving expeditions in Vermont. I'm very good at starting projects, and finishing them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Stop Making Sense, Almodovar films, True Stories, Brazil, Synecdoche, New York, A Serious Man and most other Coen brothers films, PT Anderson's films, Pixar movies, There Will be Blood and this short animated film here: http://vimeo.com/7867746.

How to make our arts economy work

What if each day when you go to sleep your consciousness dies, and is replaced with a new consciousness with the same memories, but also only lives for one day? How would we even know?
On a typical Friday night I am
a pterodactyl.
