My self-summary
Hello!
I am a man with a great desire to create some great art before I die.
I have been acting in professional theatre for almost 30 years.
I finished a show this fall and I have another one coming up in January.
I love old movies.
I play guitar, bass, and ukulele. I also am interested in building guitars or lutherie as it called.
I have written a novel and try to write another one every November.
I have been living in Pittsburgh for a little more than four years.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a plan in to produce a one man show in 2016.
I am currently training for the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon and, as a result, running has become a much bigger part of my life.
I work at Trader Joe's in East Liberty.
I'm looking to explore the city and would love someone to help me.
I’m really good at
Acting. It is what I wanted to do when I was five and I'm happy I'm still doing it.

I know a lot of strange trivia.
