The six things I could never do without
My friends and family.
My awesome business.
A good sunny day.
A good book to read.
My smart phone (yes I'm one of those guys).
The occasional break during the day to release some of the built up work energy (typically in the form of a yoga class)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Self improvement, how to conquer the world. What is wrong in Hollywood these days.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most Fridays at the movies (I see pretty much everything).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

You should message me if
You have nerd interests, love movies, and are into tall guys. A real long term relationship is the ultimate goal but even someone in the meanwhile to hang out with and go to the movies with would be awesome (especially the chick flicks. I always feel creepy when I go to those by myself). Just don't be surprised if afterwards I launch into a detailed analysis. It's who I am.
