Blake Abramovitz

I’ve been an actor in Hollywood for about fifteen years, during which time I’ve been happy to be mostly unemployed, allowing me to explore other interests as well— like yoga, meditation, psychology and writing.

The work I’ve done in these areas has led me to the realization that my childhood was a singularly strange and unfortunate experience, and that its secret tragedies have largely driven my adult life. I don’t want to suggest there’s an upside, but if there is one, perhaps it’s that knowing this has inspired me to write about it. And perhaps writing about it can shine some light on it, and in turn help other unlucky souls to arrive at similarly unbearable epiphanies.
