These are all words that I or others have used to describe me. The crazy thing is, is that most pf these words don’t even begin to truly describe who I am. While my career is a musical theatre performer/theatre practitioner, I am still so much more. I am a human being living in this existence we call life. I’m Jalen (jay-lehn). I’m a 22-year old African American male. who enjoys cooking, hanging out with my friends, good alcohol, good green, and doing theatre. I am gay. I am chubby and currently working out to get in better shape. I’m finding myself, and I guess I’m on a search for someone to share that true self with at some point. I’m not broke, but I’m not rich or well off. And I’m not starving…just a bit peckish.
Now that I’ve gotten all of that out of the way; I swear I’m not some overly serious pretentious type, I just really wanted to do something different for my introduction. I’m not exactly sure what I wanna do with this blog just yet. I know that I want to share my experiences. Soon, I’ll be on the road and touring with Birmingham Children’s Theatre in The Reluctant Dragon, so I’ll share those moments as well. I want it to be entertaining and informative. I hope that people actually read this, if not then I guess it’ll just be a nice little diary fro myself!
Live your truth, and live it honestly,
