Shiny is a man with a purpose. A ying with his yang. A moth with his flame. An echo with his bunnymen. His objective here is to entertain and promote thought. He might make you laugh, cry, scream, remain silent, become violently bewildered, or fall asleep in a split second.
And if he doesn’t succeed He will succeed at any cost.
Shiny is also a guy living in the Washington, DC area encountering the beauty of the depression that is shifting from one’s “mid-thirties” to one’s “mid-to-late thirties.” He shares his domicile with a semi-blind cat named Fyona who has mellowed in her old age but still shows her sweet side when Shiny feeds her. Oh – and there’s a wife and kid as well.
Shiny is not only a “Jack of All Trades,” but also a “Nine of All Clubs.” If you were a Las Vegas blackjack casino dealer and you drew Shiny, you would have no choice but to stay. Shiny enjoys being drawn but not quartered.
Shiny has enjoyed careers in musical and Hebrew tutoring, teaching, tour guiding, peer educating, web designing, accounting, working in the non-profit, Jewish world, graphic designing, network troubleshooting, IP analyzing and squash. Although he is not currently self-employed (he’s between self-employers), he enjoys the challenge of freelance work as well as any children’s story which includes a character named “Glenn.”
