Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was raised by wolves in the brown, scrubby mountains overlooking
Los Angeles... would be a very silly way to introduce myself on an
online dating site. But what can we do, that's how it went down. I
spent my early years running wild with the pack; greasy and naked
and free, team-hunting meals of elk and squirrels (ok fine, mostly
squirrels) and drinking from mountain streams and/or the LA river.
One night we ate actor Lou Diamond Phillips. That’s why you don’t
see him in movies anymore. We also ate the kid from Malcolm in the
Middle. (No not that one, the other one.) Then I hit puberty and
the wolves banished me. Wolves can be real dicks sometimes. So I
learned to speak and type English, made some human friends and
found a career I love. Now I basically try to live each day with as
much joy as I can. And I’d like to make it clear that I very rarely
tilt my head to the moon and hunt and eat B-list celebrities in
Griffith Park anymore!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a documentary video editor (who is also able to apply that to
jobs that need more of a marketing/commercial slant, because paying
bills is important sometimes... I've heard.) I love it all though.
I'm also working on becoming a better cameraman and all-around
producer. I'm striving for freedom and happiness in life--and work
is definitely a major part of that. I like that now I have clients,
not a boss! Important distinction I think.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Documentary editing. Also getting along with people; I don't like
everyone I meet, but I do tend to understand most people, and if
you understand them you can get along with them. (And I'm also
pretty darn good at vacuuming ever since I bought a Dyson... I know
that's non sequitur but whatever, it's true.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm a little bit funny-looking and am enthused about whatever
I'm talking about. Or that I'm quiet and a really good listener.
(That's a good thing, right? So what happened next? I'd love to
hear more about that.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Not gonna do favorites!! That's too tough. Here are five books I
love: Watership Down, Into Thin Air, Born to Run, In a Sunburned
Country, Goodnight Moon.
And 5 movies I love: The Princess Bride, Sling Blade, Friday Night
Lights (ooh, fun fact about those last two! -- ah, never mind) The
Shawshank Redemption, Gattaca.
Five Shows I love: Louie, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,
Firefly, Sunday Night Football, Sherlock (BBC).
Five Music: Dwight Yoakam, Tom Waits, Lyle Lovett, Lucinda
Williams, Bob D.
Food: Thai, Mexican, Burgers with relish, my buddy's baked mac 'n
cheese, the first bite of whatever I have when I'm very hungry.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sleeping in sometimes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The lyrics to songs playing in the car while I'm driving... because
I'm usually singing along to them. (Loudly! And poorly.) Also the
story structure of documentary interviews, obviously. And lastly,
since I'm a guy doesn't the research say I think about sex every 45
seconds? But I don't think that's accurate... more like every 55
seconds. Come on researchers, get it right!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Rescuing elderly people and kittens from burning buildings. And/or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I sometimes practice sexy-eyes in the mirror.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like to get to know me better. And if you're a relatively
happy person who usually tries to find ways to make life better. Or
if you're a little blue from time to time but think that maybe my
fun, quirky worldview could swiftly improve your outlook; 'cause it
totally can... sometimes.
(Or if you know what I was for Halloween... last pic.)
