ABOUT ME

Couchsurfing is the practice and embracing of diversity...........Which makes for great drama and conversations and doesn't limit with exclusions. ---------------------------------- I'm not much for the conservative (in case you haven't guessed). My mother was a bellydance-burlesque dancer with awards. My father was a boxer and taught the sport in the Army. He grew up in The Great Depression (born 1920) and left Tennessee. The story always ran that he came back in a Cadillac (the only brand he ever drove), down the middle of the road. His success came from opening 6 strip clubs and a locksmith shop in DC. He was also 29 years older than my mother. I am his 7th and last child with his 3rd wife. So, that history alone surely can elucidate my aversion to the norm. ------------ Please note: I am not comfortable with shared sleeping surfaces.

PHILOSOPHY

Couchsurfing is the practice and embrace of diversity...........Which makes for great drama and conversations and doesn't limit with exclusions. --------------------------------- I am indefinable, because I am boundless: Infinite.

Interests

The bold. The provocative.

Music, Movies & Books

. The Dictionary (never had one growing up). Works by Anton LaVey (particularly "Speak of the Devil" - which is just common sense to most people, but needed to be defined in black and white for me. Works by Aleister Crowley. Nathaniel Hawthorne is my favorite Colonial era writer {particularly because of ghosts & the fact that he changed the spelling of his last name (adding an "e" to the end) because of the shame an ancestor caused him because of the many deaths he was responsible for as an inquisitor (i.e.: judge) during the Witch-Craze}. "The Crimson Petal & the White" by Michel Faber (though it is so good on 'what it is to be a woman,' I find it hard to believe a man wrote it, and think perhaps he 'found' it instead of 'created' it. "The Heart of the Fire" by Cerridwen Fallingstar - even if you don't believe in past-life regression (something I hope to make time for), this book is so evocative, it will change your religion...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I set off the Jim Morrison way in January 2010, hitch-hiking to auditions and shoots. I've never had a driver's license in my life, so it just seemed like the only way to get around and live my life. On the advice of others in my local film-making community, I am pursuing more acting opportunities in NY and looking to find roommates to move in with, preferably in the Manhattan area to avoid running up a subway bill. The more, the merrier (to keep costs low)!
