My self-summary
Energetic, creative, lover of stories, science, and a good laugh. I like when you laugh so hard you can't breath and it goes on for five minutes, and everyone thinks you're crazy. That's the best right?

I have a science minded brain, but I used it to make a career in the arts. I like traveling, and singing loudly while playing guitar. 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 adventures.

On the muppet spectrum I'm somewhere between Kermit the Frog and Gonzo the Great.
What I’m doing with my life
Straddling my theater companies in NYC and Norway. It's a stretch, but it's good for the hamstrings.

terrible joke... I'm sorry.
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. Making things out of clay, or paper. Building things. I'm qualified to lead caving expeditions in Vermont. I'm very good at starting projects and organizing people.

On a typical Friday night I am
a pterodactyl.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was once hired by Banksy as a puppeteer. For reals.
You should message me if
you are confident, don't take yourself too seriously and your sense of humor leans more towards the absurd then the sarcastic.

Oh, and if you play the cello... because it is the sexiest instrument.
