Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a successful author born and raised in RVA who just moved back
home again from NYC to help my family (my father had a stroke). I'm
working on the release of my second book and my second TV show and
now that I’m ready to share my life with someone special I’m
finding it a little hard to fit into the Richmond dating
I believe we make our own destiny and I thrive on laughter,
creativity and passion. I’m what you might consider old fashioned
with a modern twist. As a southern guy, I maintain old skool
manners - I still prefer to write letters and offer up my seat on
the subway to a single mom and my coat to you when it gets cold
My friends describe me as open, positive and someone who follows
the beat of his own drum. I own a tool box, a sewing machine, the
sheet music to Monk's "Round Midnight" and I don't believe in
limitations. I was raised in a family of artists who taught me that
a man can enjoy communicating about his feelings and still be
masculine…. can be extremely passionate, spontaneous, and artistic
and still be grounded… can be thoughtful and give others the
benefit of the doubt and still remain strong… can be loyal and long
with friends and still have room for others.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I had a show on national television, working on my next one while
waiting for my agent to sell all the books I’ve written and have
yet to write.

Hanging out with my nephews. They don't have a Dad and I don't have
kids, so we make a perfect match. We like to skateboard, fish,
cook, and play music together.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
*Handmade or rummaged gifts
*Modern Chivalry - I will offer up my seat and open the door for
someone else while I tweet.
* My quirky, creative family.
* My quiver of surfboards.
* Stimulating “geek” style conversation.
* Google Maps - I'd be seriously lost without some virtual help.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the law of attraction and how weird random events that seem to be
merely coincidence happen more frequently then they should.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
watching one of my friends perform or volunteering at a theatre.

hour not having to talk - just soaking up the beauty of being
together & then - we crack each other up for another
