An autobiographical analysis of the location of my body throughout time:

In the late ’70s, I was born in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri against my will. Things were nice there, but I yearned for more.  I spent a lot of time drinking Mr. Mistys at the local DQ.

My formative years were spent in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, as my parents continued their moving tour of American suburbia (this time landing just outside of Philadelphia). Blue Bell (formerly Pigeontown) was a wonderful, idyllic place with an amazing pizza shop called Palermo’s.

To further my education, I began studying film production at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California. During my late teens and early 20s, I spent many years in and around the Los Angeles area. In retrospect, I have no idea why. Maybe because it was so close to Las Vegas?

In the early 2000s, I returned to the Philadelphia area, this time choosing to live within the city limits, as my time spent living in downtown LA taught me that if you want to meet freaks, you gotta be in the city. I guess, at first, it wasn’t really a choice… I crashed on a couch for 9 months. But eventually, I landed on Spruce St. in Center City and truly found happiness. Happiness was primarily located at a bar named Chaucer’s that has since been sold, renovated and renamed. You truly can’t go home again.

Eventually, I realized that my whole life I was simply trying to move to Brooklyn. So in 2008, I moved to Brooklyn. Despite clearly being New York City’s finest borough, after spending eight years divided between the wonderful neighborhoods of Prospect Heights and Park Slope, a marriage and the birth of my son left our newly established family interested in exploring our roots, so we decided to take up temporary residence in Sheffield, England.

Come say, “Hi.” You might find me drinking cask ale at The Greystones. But maybe not.
