I am an established artist (of Anishinaabe ancestry), currently living in Los Angeles, CA.
My interests include reading (everything from the great Russian authors, like Dostoevsky, Pasternak & Turgenev to the Beatniks like Kerouac & Burroughs), sculpting, painting (acrylic on canvas), swimming, surfing (not very good), running (even the occasional marathon), hiking, gardening (a lot), and survival studies (primitive fire-skills, plant identification, shelter, etc.), skydiving, repelling, scuba, internal martial arts, meditation & star-gazing (yeah - I know - that sounds corny - but it's not as bad as listing 'Interpretive Dancing' as an interest (no offense to the art - I'm sure it has it's perks). And 80's movies - yes I said it... I love 80's movies (especially the ones with the really bad acting) - those are my favorite!. Okay - yes... now you can declare me as an official dork.
My personal philosophy is extremely malleable and cannot be defined or explained in a sentence or two. So instead, I'll share a few intimate thoughts about how I view nature and life. All things are connected (or as some like to say - interconnected). There is no separation between one thing and the next. It is all made of the same matter. The rocks, water, minerals, plant-life, and even thoughts are all one and the same. The division and expansion of all things is evident in everything within the known universe. We view separation, when we decide that that 'thing' is not useful to us or has not been exposed to us in a way that benefits our particular 'culture', or when the rituals of everyday survival distract us from silent clarity and existentialism. 'Constructs' are then created to simplify and unite the 'tribe' to strengthen the so called 'Natural Selection' process, through the elimination of those things that don't provide tangible results within the immediate environment. Meditative observation of Nature is the language of truth and ultimately contains all the seeds of enlightenment for anyone seeking a 'way' to experience life in it's purest form (without words)... as all great revelations are born through nothing more than... silence and observation. Oh, and ironically... exposure to other cultures (as they are just as natural as the great red-wood tree) At some point, one will discover that micro-cosomos and the macro-cosmos contain the same patterns, and when the overwhelming feeling of not knowing how important you are, occurs - just remember, since all things are interconnected and you were created... you serve a magnificent role in the great design, called the 'universe'. All answers are within, as you are born from the same carbon and hydrogen that the stars were formed from. Which reminds me of one more idea I used to propose to a handful of people... Could it be possible that if 'humans' are born from the stars, then the universe is just as confused as we are? Okay, I got carried away with this one... ooops. So yeah - my personal philosophy is extremely malleable.
I like all movies, music & books that don't suck. Aka, 'Transformers': Sucks - Marching Band Music: Sucks - 50 Ways to Use Feminine Hygiene Products in a Manly Manner, by B. Koz: Sucks
I enjoy the company of eccentrics (or impoverished existentialists), and anyone who DOES NOT judge a person based on their skin color, beliefs, handicaps, religion, spirituality, etc., etc. In other words, I enjoy all people who try to walk the righteous path and who are of integrity, pride and possess the rare ability to dream and evoke hope in others.
I would like to learn more about plant/herb-medicine. I would also like to simply share experiences with people from different walks of life and backgrounds. For me - exposure is the key to wisdom - exposure to nature and to cultures other than your own. In exchange, I can teach primitive fire skills (it truly is a spiritual awakening) and as an actor, would love to share the inner workings or the art & the industry with anyone willing to learn. I also sculpt, paint & illustrate and can share my knowledge with young aspiring artists. In addition, I've been an apprentice in the internal art of Aikido and Tai-jistu and have instructed others in the past.
It may seem cliche; but for me, the most amazing thing I have seen... was the first time I saw the stars in Christ Church, Barbados. You don't get to see many star-filled nights growing up in the inner city.
In summary; I welcome any and all questions regarding my listing and other pertinent (or impertinent) details that will put you at ease!

Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.

"...the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." - -Jack Kerouac
