Introduce Yourself : The Vagabond by Jonathan Levi Phillips

The Vagabond

My name is Jonathan Phillips, I was born in Trenton, New Jersey, I grew up in Norman, Oklahoma, went to university in St. Catharines, Ontario, been living the past year in London, Ontario, and now I'm trying to find an apartment and a job in Buffalo, New York. I'm about to be more or less homeless, which will make it the second time in my life, I've been stranded more times than that, and have had absolutely no idea what to do or how to get through a situation more times than I can count. However, I always figure it out somehow, almost always by the grace of the most wonderful friends, and I come through it all a little stronger and a little wiser. It's tough - especially considering it could probably be fixed by compromising my dreams and settling into the grind - but that's what makes it an adventure. In the past year in particular, my friends have called me "ronin," "nomad," and "vagabond," and considering there's a very strong part of me that never grew out of wanting to be a heroic adventurous knight, I have to say: I rather like that mystique. Sure, trying to be a professional actor is a hard life, but it's also an interesting one!
