Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
South Austin Austinite for seventeen years. Still enjoy finding
people and places to take pictures of. Simply put, I am a Doctor
looking for a new companion.
The most accurate description of me is: I am like really strong
coffee, not everyone likes me.
* Are you a hipster?
Not really. Sure, I wear bow ties, and I love hats, but that’s
because they’re cool.
* Who do you think you are, a comedian?
Actually, yeah, I do. Last year I started doing stand up and caught
the bug. My ideal first date is to take her to an open mic
* Dude, do you even lift?
Yeah, but I’m not a muscle head in any idea of the word. I like to
run (ran my first half marathon in May 2014) and I try to be
* Are you a nerd?
Hell yeah! This is something I used to hide. I am not sure why, now
it is something I am proud of. When I was younger, I ended each day
by playing my Nintendo and reading comics.
* Are you a trekkie?
No. I like the show and movies but I wouldn’t go far enough to call
myself a trekkie. I lean towards Star Wars. (Yes, I am thrilled
that JJ Abrams is directing the new one)
* Are you adopted?
Huh? Why would you ask something like that? What is wrong with you?
I am not adopted but when I was a kid I used to ask my parents to
tell people I was adopted and my read dad was Han Solo.
* Are you religious?
Yes. I was raised Catholic. A few years ago I started questioning
my beliefs. I was lucky to have a good counselor who helped me see
that it is good to question. I am okay questioning everything and I
think it has brought me closer to the words in red.
* Were you born and bred in Austin?
Yep, well, kinda. I was born here, moved to Colorado for ten
impressionable years and came back ready for all the festivities
the live music capital of the world has to offer.
* Are you a spy?
How dare you ask another random question? Is it the bow tie? Who
have you been talking to?
* In three words or less, what the hell have you been up to?
Photography, comedy, Growth. Care to join?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work is amazing. I am trying to move up, take care of my boys and
take care of myself. I have a lot goals for 2014, travel, learn
Spanish and make new friends. I am looking forward to this year.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my beard. There’s a funny story about when I met a drunk
Irish man on the train in NY and his feelings towards my beard.
Remind me to tell you about it.

sushi, I want someone who knows what to order to go with me the
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This seems to be changing for me often. I'm leaving out the obvious
like family, loved ones and pets. Right now it would be:
1. My Canon 5D
2. My Kindle
4. BBC television (they are amazing at drama.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What is my character up to? Why does Joss Whedon get so much
pleasure killing characters we love? How can I get more centered as
Also, I put a lot of thought on a) the power of words, how one word
is considered bad, yet another with the same meaning is acceptable;
b) my YouTube on-going show – it’s a guaranteed hit if I only had
the actors and camera; c) if an Obama action figure would have Judo

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
* Freestyle Underground Ping Pong
* Staring at a white screen with writers block
* Walking down Congress with Canon in tow looking for something to
* Sipping wine and sitting in my garage watching Austin beat
* Sprawled out on the ground in relief the week is over
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In the last few years, I:
- Learned what true pain felt like
- Did something I was too scared to do for years and when I thought
the worst had passed, I learned I was wrong
None of that is easy to admit, nor is it sexy, but hey. You should
know upfront, contrary to some Internet rumors, I am, in fact, a
human being. Most of this is private. I do not talk about it often
and will not talk about it over an email.
I write short stories. I do not have a journal, so I get all my
thoughts and crazy out on the computer screen. Most of it is not
primetime television safe so I usually do not let just anyone read
Bonus private fact: I have no clue how to date. I shoot from the
hip and hope it works.
