Occupation: Actor, musician, member of the band “Awesome” (awesomeinquotes.com)
Destined for occupation since: Elementary school, when they sent us home with a worksheet with pictures of musical instruments on it. I pointed at the trumpet. Then theater extroverted me in high school, and I’ve been discovering new occupations ever since.
Grew up in: Peoria, Illinois
Personal Mission: To make it work as an artist
People might be most surprised to learn: That my dad is a pastor (I’m not religious at all.)
Favorite guilty pleasure: Blowing everything off and getting out of town and into the woods
That’s not a guilty pleasure: OK, I guess I’m a TV junkie. During the rise of reality TV, I was so glad to say goodbye, but now there are so many great shows.
Best place to eat a meal solo in Seattle? Paseo
Best way to spend a rainy day? Locked away in a dark theater in a long rehearsal
Single in seattle. Love it? Hate it? Discuss: I liked it more when I had a lot of single friends.
Describe your ideal “mate”: Smart, sexy and has a sense of humor. Those are the three big ones—and all equally important.
Favorite place for a first date? I like Shorty’s. Casual and cozy—with some energetic distractions.
First-date strategy: I would love it if it was a genuine, casual “getting to know you.” A great first date is when you look up and it’s 10 years later.
