Born in Texas, raised in Ohio, he's lived all over. How did he end up in South Philadelphia?
"I was moving around a lot with a group of friends," he told me yesterday. "We're all artists, and kept moving from city to city. We were in Los Angeles and had only one car. We all made a list of where to move. No one had Philadelphia as a first choice, but a lot of us had it as a third choice and all of us had it somewhere on the list. So we all did it."
