I was born. I was extremely inexperienced at the time. A native son of the golden west, (or at least elligible) I nonetheless spent about half of gradeschool as well as college in the midwest. School came easily to me. Real life has been a bit more challenging. I am a writer who never writes, an actor who never acts, and fighting the pointless urge to speak in threes. I'm the kind of shy that doesn't hesitate to jump atop (sturdy) tables and recite Shakespeare. And I am a Texan.
