From time to time I’ll try to be artsy. Here are some of those attempts..

Who am I?
Thanks for taking the time to read this even though, if you’re like me, your attention span is that of less than a goldfish.
My name is Perry Grone. I am a filmmaker and storyteller, and making an attempt at becoming a comedian. As of Right now I’m trying to figure out if that means I am just an annoying guy or legitimately funny. We’ll see.
For the past few years I have travelled the world meeting different cultures and sharing their stories. From South Sudanese refugees to indigenous peoples in Costa Rica, I’ve seen a fair share of different perspectives. And, holy shit, it’s changed my life.
I grew up in a small(ish) farming town in Oregon, where there wasn’t much to do except maybe drink beer on the weekends or…well…drink beer on the weekends. Eventually, I picked up a camera and hit the road to film stories. I found myself in all sorts of new experiences. Some life altering and eye-opening, while others made me wish I was back home in a comfy bed instead of lying in a hammock in freezing cold temperatures in God knows where. But all-in-all, the traveling has absolutely changed my perspective.
A common denominator between all of us, through any culture, is laughter. Everyone wants to f*cking laugh. And, if you don’t like laughing, you are either a sociopath or one of Ted Bundy’s relatives, or both. Now, I’m working on comedy. Stand up, improv, a podcast, and character videos. Hopefully I get to the point where I’m able to make serial killer sociopaths like yourself or Ted Bundy laugh from time to time.
Let’s see how this goes.
