When did you first encounter/learn about mime?

While in college, SUNY Buffalo. The chairman of the theatre department at that time, Vincent O'Neill, taught pantomime which he learned from Marcel Marceau.

How did you find Broken Box Mime Theater?

Through this fantastic woman named Marissa Molnar, who I met while in a workshop at Blessed Unrest (a theatre company). I wonder what she's doing these days.

If you had a solo mime piece about your life, what would it be called and why?

“Chao's! And then there was you”. As with everyone, I've had my ups and downs, but a lot of great things in my life have come out of bleak situations.  

What is your favorite thing about mime?

Hearing an audiences response as they figure out  what you are doing. It feels like letting someone in on a joke or a really good secret.

What is your favorite food?

Chocolate. There's no chocolate later, there is only chocolate now!

What’s your most played song?

Where it's at - Beck

What's your favorite quote?

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and then throw it in the face of the person who gave you the lemons until they give you the oranges you originally asked for.

What is your favorite time of day/day of the week/month of the year?

Late night/early morning (aka vampire time)/Monday/September

What’s your favorite mode of transportation?

Bicycle

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?

Steven Banks

If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?

If I could visit any time, it would be a thousand years into to the future. I would love to see how future archeologist try to piece together our lives. And find out what they find laughably wrong in our understanding of the world and what they get wrong about how we lived. Sort of like Futurama, but for real.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I would love to learn to fly a space shuttle.
