I'm an actor/writer kind of guy, into cycling and checking out live music and enjoying New Orleans culture and the Arts. A transplanted New Yorker who's spent most of my adult life in Brooklyn and New York City, I've worked as an actor, a marketing-rep for environmentally progressive groups, and also as a pedicab driver (bike-taxi tour guide) in midtown Manhattan.
I lived in New Orleans in the 90s when I was a Teach For America Corps teacher, and I've been in NOLA this time around since January of 2012. My folks are from Ireland, and I love to travel there and around the world, too.
I don't smoke, but I have been known to attend rallies to legalize cannibas. Despite having chosen to live in polluted, industrial areas my entire life, I have, more or less, dedicated my life to making our air and water clean, and our planet liveable.
I don't have a TV (but I like movies, good drama and comedy). I get my news mostly online from NolaDefender, The Drudge Report, Natural News, and Irish Central.
I listen to local music online on WWOZ fm, and online at Grooveshark, KEXP-fm-(Univ. of Wash., Seattle), and New York's WBAI fm and EastVillageRadio.
I "eat healthy," and get most of my groceries at the local green supermarkets and farmers' markets. I'm for local, non-GMO, grass-fed, non-corporate, free-range, organic, tasty, spicy food. I enjoy good conversation, and favorite drinks include Murphy's Irish Stout, local Ciders & Strawberry Beers, Chocolate Stouts, and Cabernet Sauvignon. I also love strong coffee, and good strong Irish tea.
When I host guests, I will be as supportive and friendly as one would hope one's host to be, and I can also leave you be in peace to do your own thing, as you like it.
As a guest, I am considerate, clean, and respectful of house rules.
