A native New Yorker/Queens resident and former Florida/Louisiana resident. A former Arkansas (and longtime Michigan) fan, former Broadcast Journalism/Political Science and French major, LSU alum (B.A.'s in History and English; minor: French Literature), music lover and former college radio DJ, arts admirer, sports watcher (esp NCAA), bad joke teller, and now Manager of Business Development for SearchMarketers and freelance journalist reporting on the arts/culture beat. Scoff-worthy terms and turn-offs: selfies, foodies (the hell is a foodie?), arrogance, online dating, and hyphenated terms (I am Haitian-American, though). I am a sucker for maxims, southern women (where are my Mississippian and Georgia ladies at?), Publix yogurt, squats, yuengling, and current reads include, "The Power Broker," (two years and counting) and "Private Parts" Needless to say, I'll be glad to take digits from the following femme fetals: Mo Isom, Amanda Freitag, Aisha Tyler, Scarlett Johannson, Paula Faris, Nicole Ari Parker, Garcelle Beauvais, and Meghan McCain. Call me maybe?

“Hollywood is crazy: The Last Samurai starring…Tom… Cruise? He’s the last samurai? Give me a break…first they had "The Mexican" with Brad Pitt, and now they’ve got The Last Samurai with Tom Cruise. Well I’ve written a film—maybe they’ll produce my film: "The Last Nigga on Earth" starring Tom Hanks. How ‘bout that?” --Paul Mooney
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood." -- Theodore Roosevelt
