About Me


hal-lay-loo, i need to sing!


I ride a bike around the citites i live in, the most important thing in my life is art: i paint, dance, play guitar, journal, generally exercise my compulsion to express myself in all possible a political junkie, have worked as a teacher and a cook. i live sensually and love taste texture, smell sound, etc.i also tell politically incorrect jokes and love whiskey.
and now i am making music videos, too.
