===========================
A few things you should know.

I’m based out of Richmond, VA,
but what are places in 2022?

I (sorta) won an Oscar for Production Design for my role
as set dressing in Spielberg’s movie Lincoln.

Currently renting out a rehabbed
Alps-in-the-60s-themed cabin in the Catskills.

Life goals include:
Building an ultralight aircraft, taking a freighter cruise, and living a life that impresses both my theoretical grandchildren and the coroner who performs my autopsy.
