About Nish Suvarnakar and this blog

As a quick update, I am working on financial reform campaign, spent 2011 in Haiti, and am still digesting.  

I haven’t made a post here in over a year.  Considering closing it down and starting fresh. The only reasons anybody would look at this blog now are:

A. HR person is making sure I am who I claim to be (I am)

B. Stray reporter looking for background on me for a story (super rare)

C. Garden variety stalker (Really I am flattered but respect the restraining order).

The only way that any of these folks finds this is through the Googles. I am planning on writing posts on the more interesting (at least others think so) search results but will at least explain why I am on IMDB.

I lived in West Virginia in 2003 to middle of 2005 and during that time, my beautiful then girlfriend/now beautiful wife was spending about 23 hours a day studying for medical school and I had some time to kill.   I had acted a little in high school and college but had resolved that generously mine was a small town talent.  I saw a post in Morgantown’s free weekly for actors for a dramady by Scott Martin and showed up at the audition and promptly never heard anything about it.  About six months later, Scott calls and asks if I would be interested a small role of bouncer but I would have to drive to Boone County (I think).  I said sure, grabbed my black leather coat some boots and headed down.  I’ll put more thought into the experience but will say that after the shoot, I  never heard anything about this movie (which came out two years later) until someone mentioned I was in IMDB.   That is really it.  Only interesting if you enjoy the utterly banal.  I am not embarrassed by it though admittedly, I have never seen it.  I don’t think its available on Netflix though I don’t have netflix now.  I am pretty sure you wouldn’t know its me unless I pointed it out.  That’s it.  Hope this was informative (for the above A, B, and C Googlers).

(I don’t make any claims that this blog will last beyond the Social Media class at G-town. )
