About Me

Grew up in Chicago and then moved to NYC after uni. I wanted to be an actor, but then I was just working in restaurants. Finally by the grace of the wonderful universe a friend helped me get into TV and Film, I started working behind the scenes as member of many art department crews. We would build sets, rig, set props, dress sets, and eat a lot of "crafty". NYC changed before my very eyes, and so did I moved out and traveled Australia. As of now I'm in New Zealand, traveling, working odd jobs, and figuring out what makes me the most happy. So far its: Guitar, good food, woodworking/building, hiking, warm weather, the ocean, funk music, kind but crazy and artful souls, and good coffee...
