Thinking about the fringe...

So today I had the opportunity to be interviewed for a documentary film about the New York International Fringe Festival, also known as FringeNYC. The project is being spearheaded by filmmaker Frank Kuzler, who has been gathering footage and interviews from FringeNYC since 2006. As the festival is in its 20th year, the plan is to continue documenting this year's festival happening in August, and then the hope is for a release at some point in 2017.

Tackling relationships with food

I don't talk about this very much, but I have a difficult time with food. I don't have a lot of self-control, particularly around foods that I like to eat, which tend to be carbohydrates and cheese. I'm fairly successful at keeping these foods out of my house, but avoiding the problem is not really addressing the problem. I also know that I use food as a distraction, eating because I feel stressed or bored or lonely or depressed. Because I exercise on a fairly regular basis and make generally decent food choices, I don't gain a lot of weight. However, that doesn't change the psychological impacts of my choices.
