I’ve never been accused of being short-sighted or not willing to diversify into non-standard lines of thinking, or afraid to try new things. Instead, it’s really become a strength. Bio’s are like resume’s. We’ve each written a hundred of them, and tailored each to the desired reading audience. In this case, the audience is as diverse as the subject, so I’ll touch on all of it.
I’m a creative. What the hell does that mean? Exactly what it says. Whether that means designing a logo for a magazine or a band, or it means attempting to see things through a lens differently than most people would think to, alright. If it means seeing something so routine in one’s daily life and turning that thought into a song, then that’s what it means.
If it means getting up on a stage alone with a guitar and expressing that song as I believe it should be done, then that’s what it means. If it means getting up on a stage and singing with blaring guitars and pounding drums…if it means seeing the way the world is changing and designing the life of a man struggling with living in the changing times….if it means trying to provoke these expressive thoughts in others…then it is.
As a creative, I’m measured by the things I’ve created, and while many were never intended for public viewing or distribution, several of these creations are. With that in mind, the most prolific of these areas of creation is musical. I’ve been a musician and writer for almost two decades. I’ve performed shows singing, playing bass, guitar, drums, harmonica, and even bongos. Any excuse to take a stage and make music, and I will show up. My work is easily located through the projects I’m in now: Division, a band which writes and performs its own metal, and Just Wanna Play,which is a party band as diverse as the weather in DC . For details on each, see the Links page.
Beyond the music, I’ve always loved to draw and write. My proudest creation is the futuristic comic book “hero” Catwalk, who was published internationally in 2001 by Peregrine Entertainment. Samples of Catwalk’s ongoing story will be posted to this site for entertainment and feedback periodically.
Peregrine went with the up-and-coming Corey Zayatz to do the artwork for the comic book, but I have sketchbooks full of my own character designs of Catwalk, the supporting characters for that project and many others who will grace this site when the time comes. Stay tuned.
I’m also a lover of motorcycles, which is inherent in Catwalk and in my own personality. I’m proud to wear the colors of Lou-Evil Psycles Motorcycle Club.
Among the other roles I’ve played are actor, model, pro-wrestling referee, computer guy, mascot for several large retail chains, and yes, even Dungeon Master.
I’m happy to answer any inquiries regarding work in any of the above fields, as well as others that may be seriously offered. I only ask to be treated sensibly and professionally, and that everyone seek the creative within themself.
