My self-summary
I ran an experimental theatre company in TX.
I ran an artists' colony in an old church in KS.
I spent 15 months performing in a stunt show in China.
I just moved back to LA.
Now what?
What I’m doing with my life
Clenching up.
Spacing out.
Aiming for transgression and transcendence.

Filling it with as much art / literature / performance / film / dining out / possibility as possible.
I’m really good at
tap dancing
loyalty
memorizing
I do a mean "That's Life" at karaoke.
The first things people usually notice about me
A wide, easily induced smile. Pretty big chompers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
THE THINGS I'VE ALWAYS LOVED:
Norman Mailer, especially Ancient Evenings
Ishiguro's The Unconsoled
Anything related to early 20th Century avant-garde movements

WHAT I'M READING AS OF LATE: Pataphysics: a useless guide
Wallace Shawn's Night Thoughts
I subscribe to Artforum, Bookforum, Modern Painters, New American Paintings, and the Paris Review

Shows:
Taylor Mac's 24 Decade (and 24 hour!) History of Popular Music
Wallace Shawn/Andre Gregory's production of A MASTER BUILDER

Artists:

Music:
I have an endless tolerance for drones, noodling electronics, tinkly pianos and combinations thereof. So I listen to a lot of things that orbit the universe of, say, R. Andrew Lee and William Basinski and Pauline Oliveros. Yoko Ono's "Mind Train" has become the song of my summer...but also, you know, the usual suspects: Talking Heads, Tom Waits, Lana Del Rey, Chance the Rapper, Dirty Projectors, etc. etc....

Food:
Donuts, ice cream, breakfast, the strangest thing on the menu...bring on the "ox root" and jellyfish head and duck blood...
Six things I could never do without
My best friend.
Most other things are negotiable.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I can't make myself lucid dream. The work of artists I enjoy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either catching up on my reading or attending an event on the theatre/ritual continuum.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
*All of my tattoos are in my underpants.*
You should message me if
You like being read to

You straddle the line between highbrow and lowbrow

You ask yourself "What If?" questions

You want to hang out and have fun
