It Is What It Is
This is an on-going exploration into the variety of ways we learn to accept our circumstances in life. It has begun as a story collection project, with the intention that it will grow into a series of public speaking events (and a collection of cool t-shirts).
In part this project is to meant to prove that one doesn’t need a large and meaningless social media presence in order to find “success” as an artist. The goal is to build community person by person with actual encounters and story sharing.
Coming soon: iiwii merch.
How I Met Marc
I met actor Marc Menchaca (Ozark, Homeland, Manifest, The Outsider) on a flight from Boston to Martha’s Vineyard in 2014. We stay in touch via an on-going series of voice memos. One of Marc’s many gifts is that he is genius at making friends, keeping friends and connecting people. In his 44 years on this planet he has built a sturdy web of relationships with people from all over the world, and each one of them has an interesting or funny (usually both) story about how they met him. I find it hilarious and fantastic that he has friends from every imaginable walk of life; the goal is to interview as many of them as possible.
This podcast will make its debut in autumn, 2019.
