I am a very political guy. I was brought up in a liberal household but I turned out to be much more Progressive and liberal than my family. Being a third-generation artist I appreciate the arts. I paint, sculpt, write literature, make music, act, and do photography. I am not a proponent of traditional male-female roles. I do cook, clean, do laundry, and other things. I am a punk (music). I play the bass guitar! I am an environmentalist and conservationist.
I am very eclectic and I know stuff about different topics. I am shy at first but once you get to know me I am very eccentric, odd, funny, smart, creative, imaginative, romantic.
Knowing that I can make a difference by doing good deeds every day of my life!

If I were elected to Congress the first thing I would do is talk to my constituents and interest groups and write up a handful of bills to put in the hopper and introduce to the floor, debate them, and hopefully pass them. I might have to filibuster so I better drink some coffee before to stay awake and alert during my long neverending speech!
