My self-summary
I guess this is where I'm either supposed to sing my own praises or try to sum up my own personality with some kind of objectivity. But I don't think I can do that, so here are just the proverbial facts: I've recently returned to Los Angeles after having been away in DC for about two years. I'm originally from Connecticut (near NYC) but have lived mostly in LA since 1996. I'm a musician, a writer/proofreader/copy editor, and a photographer, in that order of importance to me. I'm a bit shy, but I open up around people with whom I have good personal chemistry, or after I've had a drink or two. I like to think I'm a fairly bright guy, but obviously I'm dumb enough to have carelessly used my own damned name as my Okcupid user name—something that apparently no one else does—and too lazy to delete my profile and start over again.
What I’m doing with my life
Reassembling it, adjusting to being back in town after a long time away.

Playing guitar
Fixing other people's bad writing
Blowing smoke rings
The first things people usually notice about me
My recently shaved head. Sorry, not trying to be deceitful in the photo section, but no good photos of it have been taken yet.

On a typical Friday night I am
Playing guitar in a bar somewhere or sitting at home staring at the damned Internet. Hence okcupid.com, I guess.

  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
...the foregoing suggests that we might enjoy a conversation over a drink rather than staring awkwardly at the floor trying to make some kind of small talk.
