My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am super fun and smart and stuff. Other great qualities of mine include being terribly funny, remarkably easy going, romantic when it's called for, and practical when it's needed. I'm easily socialized (I'll most likely get along with your friends), fun in the sack (I'll probably get along with you), and open to whatever the fuck (your Grandma may or may not like me). There are, of course, a number of factors that counteract many of these good / interesting qualities including a long list of highly negative personality traits that are deeply ingrained in my being, but let's put those aside. Bad advertising.

So instead I'll just share some random thoughts about myself.

-Thus far life has been a wild assemblage of many different adventures. It has rarely been boring.
-I have been known to happily keep it casual with friends and benefits and such, but also to fall in love and get serious. I find all experiences to be wildly informative.
-I don't always have a beard, but 50% of the time I have one 100% of the time.
-I love dogs. There have been a few.
-I believe there is great value in self reflection and the ability to apologize, but it's irritating.
-I grew up playing a variety of instruments, but never learned to read music because I memorized everything.
-I'm a big fan of all the senses.
-If you are someone who says "I don't date _______" categorically, then you aren't looking closely enough, and we probably won't get along. That being said; take a minute, rethink your position, and we'll go from there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, one day in 2011 I moved from Brooklyn to L.A. diving into a variety of pursuits and ventures such as Music, Voices, Characters, Sound Effects, Stories, Finding the Funny, Food, Friendship, Therapy, Love, Sex, Tears, Smiles, Writing, Hiking, Sleeping, Blinking, Thinking, Drinking, Rising, Slowly Dying. I do a little bit of a lot of that, and went to a lot of school for some of it.
