"All my lies are only wishes." -Jeff Tweedy///
Born in Janesville, WI, which is not near as bad as people say that it is. Raised Roman Catholic. Wandered away from the faith, but it never really leaves you. Went to Craig High School, which was God's joke on me. College at UW-Eau Claire to study theater. Rather there than Juliard. Why? Theater classes only teach you what you're doing wrong, which is important and all; but math, history, literature, science, geography, everything but theater-they teach you to understand and understanding is the key to acting. Also Eau Claire has the Joynt, a bar cooler than any in NYC. Wrote movie reviews. Graduated. Moved to Madison. Pizza delivery. Video Store. Groundskeeping. Historic Preservation. Acting. Directing. Moved to Seattle. Bottomed out in Seattle. Escaped right as things were getting good. Immediately started missing Seattle. Minneapolis. Offices. Back to Madison. More acting and directing. More offices. Stabs at writing. Tour guide at Taliesin. Benedick in "Much Ado." Marat in "Marat/Sade." The male half of "The Blue Room." Started doing short films on the Internet with Blame Society Productions. "Caught Red Handed" Trilogy. "McCourt" trilogy. "Chad Vader." Life gets a bit more interesting. Famed smoker. More famous cougher. Pritzker Prize winner (2004).
Who I'd like to meet:
Wolverine. Not the angry Canadian X-Man, but rather an actual wolverine. He would be my companion and protector, destroying mine enemies from the ground up. He would be very knowledgable about music and we would wander the backroads of the Midwest solving peoples problems and discussing the importance of Gram Parsons on modern music and how not enough people appreciate the Go Team.
