Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I spent the majority of my life focusing on the hard sciences;
Physics, chemistry, and biology. Somewhere around my mid 20's, my
focus switched to more artistic pursuits and I began working more
towards a career in acting. Still absolutely love the physical and
social sciences, I'm just not really looking for a career in them
I'm a bit of an old-school geek, I adore comic books and gaming. I
believe that Saturday morning cartoons from the late 80's and most
of the 90's are some of the best entertainment that has ever been
made in this country. I still make a bee-line for the toy aisle
whenever I'm in a department store.
I hold that life should be fun, and that growing up doesn't mean
abandoning the things that made us smile as kids.
Oh, and I refuse to ever get a smartphone. Ever.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
So I just moved to Buffalo from Rochester! Decided it was time to
relocate to a city with more career options in the performing arts,
and Buffalo has Rochester trumped pretty soundly in that
department. I've got a small circle of friends out here already,
but I'm definitely looking to meet a lot of new people in the next
Semi-professional actor looking to make the switch into full-time
profession. Getting pretty close, too!
I've got a day job moving furniture. It is raw, physical labour
that requires very little thought, so I occupy my mind at work with
creating stories and scenarios that I intend to, but never will,
write down. Definitely not a career, but it's keeping me well fed
and housed while I spend my evenings devoted to the arts.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing, writing, and acting. I'll make a stack of pancakes that
will take your breath away.
I can dis- and re-locate my left thumb at will. Hasn't proved
terribly useful in my adult life, but it got me out of PE in middle
school during dodgeball week.
I'm an unapologetically loyal person; Once a friend, always a
friend. Regardless of time, distance, or behaviour, I'll always
stand by a friend when they need it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My voice. People tend to hear me before they see me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All time favourite books include The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier
and Clay by Michael Chabon, the Discworld Series by Terry
Pratchett, and I really enjoyed The Tenth Circle by Jodi
Hands down all time favourite movie is High Fidelity, very closely
followed by Almost Famous.
I consider both the book and film of Sideways to be mandatory
reading and viewing for every man between the ages of 25 and
Right now I'm really enjoying the British TV series Misfits, big
fan of Doctor Who (since 1983!). Been a huge fan of Frasier for
years, just recently decided to go watch Cheers and get all the
jokes that went over my head as a kid.
As for food? I love everything, but Asian's at my top. Love me some
Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In the past few years, I've learned there's very little in this
world one can't live without. If absolutely pressed to pick, I'd
have to go with:
A Steady Supply of Clif Bars
(The last two are a luxury, but I couldn't think of any two other
necessities and so figured I could throw in a couple "me" items.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Superpowers. No, really. I'm kinda sorta writing a few different
titles of comic books. I'm at the point where I could REALLY use a
good artist who'd be willing to collaborate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
either on stage or out singing at a local bar... or at a board game
night, but that's a recent development.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a deep, secret love for romantic comedies, chick flicks, and
anything John Hughes made.
I change the way I look. A lot. Partially it's the theatre thing,
but I think I'd do it anyway. I just like looking in the mirror
sometimes and being surprised.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't list "my phone" as one of your 6 essentials. Also, if you
want some pancakes. Seriously, I'm a skillet-wizard and will cook
you a stack of flapjacks that will make you swoon.
Frankly, just say hi if your interest has been piqued. Seriously, I
don't know what the contact etiquette on here is, I feel like I
shouldn't say hello until you've also at least looked at my
profile. I mean, I wouldn't just come up to someone in a bar and
tap them on the shoulder and launch into a conversation; I'd wait
until there was mutual eye contact. I'm starting to get the
impression that things go a little differently here, though, and
I'm not really sure how to conduct introductions.
