Just a kid from Queens. Born raised in NY, work in film tv. Own and operate a lighting rental company, which means I own a couple of trucks and some equipment, or it owns me... haven't figured out which way it is yet. I also work on set as a lighting monkey. Good folks, raised a gentlemen. Pretty close with them.
Looking forward to hitting some islands and beaches to warm this winter up. When I'm home; I'm relaxing in the hammock or bbq'ing in the backyard watching a game. Enjoy staying creative and working on personal projects.
I've recently been described as true american hero, based on the reality that I'm single guy raising two black cats in these crazy times. I like the kind of bars where dreams go to die. Usually that just means its dark, has a good jukebox, and preferably a pool table.
TV; BSG, Its Always Sunny, Breaking Bad, were all excellent shows. Really into The Flash right now, lot of fun. Always down for some Law Order reruns.
Movies, definitely something I'm dork about. Blade Runner, Wild Bunch, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Big Lewboski, Manhunter, Evil Dead 2, Tinker Tailor Solider Spy, Serenity, Glen Garry. Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson. I go to a lot of screenings of older films, especially if I haven't seen a print of it.
Books; read all things Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Elmore Leonard, Frank Miller, Raymond Chandler, unfortunately I've read all of them. big fan of nonfiction.
Love to cook, will try anything. I've had some really good lessons from little old ladies in moo moos. Got a well used BBQ and a turkey deep fryer out back. Like new restaurants, it takes a lot to get me to go to the same place twice... unless its walking distance.
Sports; UFC, baseball, football. I'm a Mets fan, which I pretty much regret every day. Setup a tv on the back porch because baseball was meant to be watched outside. If there is a big fight in a city I haven't been to or if its in Vegas during winter, chances are I'll be there and make a weekend trip out of it.
The Illo Family.
That and I got a extra ticket for comic con in the fall.
