Stuff About Me:

Since you've arrived at this page, I figure I might as well humor you :) 

Stuff about me...let's see. I'm turning 28 on June 1st, which makes me a gemini. I'm not as complicated or flakey or unreliable as most gemini-haters would have you believe we all are. I'm actually very straight forward, usually stick to plans, and am pretty dependable. I'll usually root for the underdog, except in baseball. I'm a Yankee fan. But let's face it, this year, we are the underdog. (Deep sigh). I want to be a published writer and working actor. I write songs and lyrics often, and have an embarrasing collection of which have yet to be recorded or formally composed because I'm terrified of actually doing it (but hopefully this year I will overcome my cowardice).

Desert island things: East of Eden by John Steinbeck; Paradise Lost by John Milton; actually, scratch that...Milton's anthology; several blank journals, and pens; swiss army knife; proper hunting knife; matches; a device to stream music, and several fully charged portable battery chargers (I could scarecely survive without music); the antique gold, butterfly shaped music box my mother played for me as a child which--ironically--plays the melody of Sinatra's, "My Way."; a fishing net;  medicinal ointment/antiseptic; sleeping bag; portable water filter. 

The End! Thanks for your donation in advance!
