It's pronounced Poryes like "glorious". Great-grandma Poryes must have been one hot pregnant lady to get past Ellis Island without our Hungarian last name getting white washed. For instance, my maternal side of my family went from Thomeshevski to Thomas. Those ugos.
My parents taught me education is important (BFA Acting from California State University, California). I used this mentality against them when I started taking improv classes to learn how to poorly pantomiming washing dishes and fishing (Groundlings, UCB NY). I grew up in the San Fransisco Bay Area before living in Sothern CA and New York. Why did I move? I broke up a then-boyfriend and read "The Artist's Way". Ask me about it. I'll go on for at least forty-five minutes
Some more fun things about me: I have a phobia of fuzzies, the characters in costume at theme parks, not the sexual fetish. I'm afraid of spirders, the insect that is creepy crawly, not the sexual fetish. I was afraid to die alone. No wait... I'm still afraid to die alone.
