A story of disappointments mainly. Went to Southern CT, but failed my student teaching (Although my class did buy me a Grateful Dead album). Moved to Indiana to study for the minsitry, but that didn't quite work out. Currently unemployed (It's a big club)
Our senior play was the classic "Arsenic and Old Lace". It was key to the plot that I open a trunk onstage and find the dead body. I had never practiced with the trunk, and did not realize there was a 2nd latch on the side. I could NOT get the trunk open. After improvising for a minute or two, I somehow managed to "see" the dead body through a "hole in the lid".
I would describe myself as a storyteller. From time to time, I write poetry, song lyrics, or short stories. I have also performed as a storyteller telling folktales in schools, libraries, and nursing homes.
Famous or interesting people you've met?
worked at summer stock theatre, unzipped Julie Newmar, went drinking with Christopher Lloyd and met several others. Have a couple college classmates that I see occasionally on TV or in movies. Of course, I ran against gold medalist Bruce Jenner because he went to high school in Newtown.
What are some of the more "unique" places you have visited?
I went to Beaumont, Texas in 2005 with the Red Cross to help after hurricanes hit the area.
