When did you move to Baltimore?
September 18, 2008.
Who do you look up to, as an actor, director, or arts administrator?
Hmm. Wow. Carlos Uriona of Double Edge Theatre because he has a tremendous capacity for warmth, seriousness, and silliness all at the same time.
You like birds a lot. What’s with you and birds?
Well I don’t have a pet, and I would like to have a pet, so this is a good intermediate, low cost, low maintenance way to interact with animals.
Carrots have a reputation for loving food. Can you enlighten the Single Carrot friends and patrons as to what “angry belly” is?
Imagine this. It’s Thanksgiving. You’ve already had three plates of food and suddenly a bunch of people show up with, like, six or seven pies. They pies there on the counter tempting you, and so you say, “Well, is anybody else gonna eat some of this pie? It’s not going to eat itself.” So you do the right thing, and you start eating pie. But nobody helped you because they’ve all had pie at other people’s houses. So suddenly you’re in a conundrum and your only option is to keep eating until it literally hurts to move, to talk, think, sit, breathe. And angry belly has arrived.
Baltimore or Boulder?
Combo. Outdoorsiness and scenic elements of Boulder (mountains) mixed with everything Baltimore has to offer.
So, basically take the Rocky Mountains, and put ’em in the Mid Atlantic?
What is a hope or dream you have for the future of art in Baltimore City?
More artists with sustainable, affordable space to produce their art.
Challenge: Offer a deal to Single Carrot patrons and friends, right now. Go.
If you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture you took of a grackle and tell me when and where you saw it, I’ll hook you up with a 1/2 price ticket to our summer show, Foot of Water.
