Hello! Nice to e-meet you. I'm Micah. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and I've been living in Brooklyn the past 4.5 years. I've worked as a Manny for about two years when I first moved to NYC and I loved it. They were a wonderful family on the LES with two boys (5 & 7 when I started). I would get them to their gymnastics or soccer at Chelsea Pier or acting class or wherever they needed to be that day. I would fix them dinner and put them to bed most nights.
I loved the family and the kids and the only reason I left is because I was offered a full-time job with benefits. That job was a Sales position in the Waste & Recycling industry, which just laid be off yesterday. I still keep in touch and we'll still FaceTime or I'll babysit when their parents need a night out.
Up until this week, I've been working that sales job, but I've also driven a garbage truck, been a cruise ship performer, a cocktail waiter, taught improv classes, acted in commercials, and done stand-up comedy. I'm active, athletic, and work out 5 days a week. I played high school soccer and still play whenever I can. I also play in a softball league and play pickup basketball whenever I can.
I love pets and have a dog of my own, a 15lb Beagle mix named Michael J Fox. He's my world and I will force you to look at a lot of pictures of him as well as my two nieces. I am a proud uncle to two of the cutest little ginger babies you have ever seen.
In my free time, I like to read novels, watch films, write screenplays, and be outside with my dog. I recently taught myself how to edit video and do some minor video fx and I've been playing around with making a web series where my dog and I play two crime-fighting social workers.
I currently live in East Williamsburg. I do not have a car but I do have my license and I am an experienced and safe city driver. I lived in Chicago proper for 10 years and had a car and I am one of the best parallel parkers you will ever meet.
I would love to chat to see if we are a good fit! Thanks in advance,
