I’m an acting/improvising optimizing son of a gun.

I’ve been living and working and performing in Chicago since 2005. I love to eat, travel, talk and make people laugh. So for me this blog stuff is pretty neat.

I also like you. Whoever you are. I like you. For coming to my blog and sharing in my thoughts. I appreciate you. And I think you’re hot. So here’s to you, readers of my blog. Thanks for being awesome. Share and share a like!

Greece Lightening pt. 2

Paros (pronounced pa-rose) was the island we started on during the first half of our trip. It’s part of the Cyclades (pronounced Psych-lades) which is a series of islands south of mainland Greece (pronounced PHGreece, the PH being silent). Thee Cyclades are what people think of when they think of Greece, the white buildings with…

Greece Lightning, pt 1

It’s been a while since I’ve written here, partly because I’ve not really been “up to the task” per say, but also because Stax and I recently took a trip on which I’d purposely left my laptop at home. Let’s say, that after three difficult months, we needed a bit of a break. So, we…

Football Sundaes

Cause it’s like a cherry on top…of the week (Trademarked, this is trademarked NFL network don’t steal it from me…I just can’t figure out how to do that little symbol) I really never thought I’d be a stereotypical “guy” and watch football all day on Sundays, but…it happened. I love football. I specifically love the…

I did a thing…

Specifically, I ran a half marathon…on Sunday. With my own legs…and I’m not currently a ghost writing this to you. Yes, I finished it. In fact, I did it only 3 minutes slower than I thought I’d do it. I ran the half in 2 hours and 48 minutes, that’s 12 minutes less than 3…

Twerk Life Balance…?

The answer is simple: Twerk is life…thus there is no balance…there is only twerk. Now, if only work were twerk, which for some people it is and I envy those people…oh how I envy them. Their booties shaking in the air as though they were without care. But, unfortunately, I don’t get paid to twerk…not…

Excuse me, business is calling.

I’m currently sitting in the Business Lounge at the Frankfurt airport. I just finished watching the Patriot (Mel Gibson can cry with the best of them) and I’m waiting for my flight back to Chicago…I am, in a word, tired. Exhausted even. (Please imagine that as being said by Snagglepuss…I did) I’m not really sure…

Cologne 2015: City of Bites

I’m in Cologne again, in fact it’s just after midnight and I’m laying on the pullout couch of the corporate apartment. The couch is in bed form right now…just…I mean I didn’t want you to think that was laying on the couch even though it could be a bed. It’s a bed…a mostly comfortable bed,…

Daddy Issues…

Don’t get excited. This is still a kid friendly post…as much as any of my posts are kid friendly. You pervs. My dad is having heart surgery this Wednesday. Like, full blown heart surgery. The kind of heart surgery that most people think of when you say “heart surgery” and they say “I’m sorry, are…
