             I Love to write, cook, make/listen to music, help, explore, promote, laugh, sit and think, look good, read, enjoy life, share, learn and teach. Luckily, that is exactly what Fromuth Productions is all about. Hence, I’m here.

What I’m About: Great music, whatever that is in the moment, wide open places, great, freshly cooked food, the ocean, local beer, sand in the turn-ups of my jeans and my hair, old coffee tables with oil lamps on them, plants, typewriters, reading, wood stove fires during the winter, boats, Sperrys, finding buoys on the beach, watches worn face-in, long underwear, the Law Quad, building things, old movies, little envelopes, dancing, a bag for every occasion, moleskin notebooks, swing-top bottles, writing, blue Papermate Medium ballpoint pens, fresh herbs, Irish accents, Irish breakfasts- the kind with homemade brown bread and orange marmalade and Kerrygold, cold and salty wind, the greatest family a man could ask for, tapas, motorcycle goggles, Harry Potter, outdoor showers, the East Coast, yurts, recycling, Buster Keaton,  nautical flags, love and the shameless ability to express it, playing drums, Dark and Stormies, Patagonia (the place and the company), comfortable chairs, twentieth century American literature, the color blue, to-do lists with checkboxes, proper grammar, organizing films alphabetically and shirts according to color and pattern type, Christmas, email on my iPhone, family legacies at the University of Michigan, fishing, black and white photography, old sheet music, corn beef sandwiches, cardigans, and driftwood.

Idols: John Steinbeck, Yvon Chouinard, Doug Tompkins, Ernest Hemingway, Katherine Rose, my Mom, my Dad, my Sister.

Guilty Pleasure: Escape- Enrique Iglesias.

Favorite Board Game: Boggle

Favorite TV Show: M*A*S*H*

Theme Song To Your Life: The Indiana Jones Theme Song (switched out with the Star Wars theme song on Tuesdays and Sundays)

Country I’d Do Inappropriate Things To Get To: New Zealand, because it’s too expensive to pay the full airfare.

Favorite Artist(s): John Steinbeck, Winslow Homer, John Ford, Louis Armstrong, Edward Hopper, Vincent van Gogh, Miles Davis, Frank Capra.

If I Were A Vegetable: Heirloom Tomato. I’m a classic; I’m arrogant enough to not be called a regular tomato. I’m best with citrus, I’m summery and I’m fresh. You can taste the difference when I’m homegrown. And you can’t define me- am I really a vegetable? Some would argue.
