The arts in general are by far one of the most important things in my life. My passion sits more toward film and music but I find inspiration in all areas. I truly believe the movies we watch and music we listen to, even the most popular forms, have the power to inspire and influence and change us.
In terms of career, I like the idea a lot of putting all my efforts toward creating something that could inspire and change someone the way art has done for me (I know, cheesy as hell, but if you can reach one person!) This being in mind, I decided to head to graduate school for screenwriting (where I am now) and am continuing to pursue acting (where I put most of my efforts in high school and college) at the same time.
I'm the middle boy of three boys. We have a very dramatic, loud (in the good sense) family, all close and growing closer as we get older, which is the best way I think the whole family situation could possibly go. It's nice to feel the people you love and care about the most (and the people who can never get rid of you!) turn into more than just as-needed-family-members but true lifelong friends.
When I lived in London I went out a lot, you could say. I worked my ass off as well, but I had a good bit of fun. Been going out much less as I get older, love wine and a good movie on the couch. However, I definitely still know how to have a good time :)
I love to plant myself in a place for three years and really experience a life and then see what the next place has to offer. I think this is totally possible to do while keeping those you love close. Just because you leave a place for a time doesn't mean you leave the people in it behind forever.
I've been all over but London on a windy day and Maine on a perfect fall evening are just about the greatest places I think someone could ever be.
After college I worked for a group called Up With People - it's basically a "we are the world" community service group with singing and dancing where everyone smiles all the time. It's not as bad as it sounds! I got to circle the globe three times in a year and a half for free, so it was totally worth it. With that in mind, I love to travel. It's nice to SEE places, but what I really love is connecting with PEOPLE in the places you go. Any chance to realize all the more how everyone all over the world is the same no matter where you go is a chance that should be taken, I think.
I love to laugh. I'm honest, probably too much. I connect easily but tend to have a few closer connections and those are the kinds that truly mean the most to me.
There's a lot more but I tend to ramble and this thing didn't ask for my life story anyway. But you can feel free to!
