My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wanted to have Morgan Freeman narrate my profile, but it seems that celebrity- narration is not an option on OKcupid. That's a shame, especially considering the fact that nine out of ten women seem to list Shawshank Redemption as one of their favorite movies. Therefore, I ask you, when reading on, do it with Morgan Freeman's voice in your head...or James Earl Jones, he's good too.

My story begins, just like Dickens’ “David Copperfield”…Chapter 1: I am Born…and then it takes off in a completely different direction.

I left the gray winters of Northeastern Ohio for the sunny skies of LA in 1995. I experimented with the other coast in 2001, when I moved to New York City, but after three great years there, I decided that as much as I appreciate fluctuations in the weather, 70s and sunny every day is hard to beat. I do love my life in LA, but I miss a colorful autumn, an occasional thunder storm and a traffic free expressway.

I have a thirst for adventure, but I'm not an adrenaline junkie. You won't find me jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, base jumping off a cliff, or weaving through traffic on a speeding motorcycle. However, I have braved 50 degree waters in a shark cage hoping for a face to face meeting with a great white shark, I did a solo climb to the top of a mountain in Transylvania to see one of Dracula's castles, hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon by the light of a full moon, and danced with a lederhosen-clad giant in the Vienna Woods (truth be told, he was a very friendly giant).

I love getting out and seeing the world. I traveled to Berlin, and Munich last October, and plan to visit Cannes in the Spring. A few years ago I completed a month-long, solo journey through Eastern Europe (Prague, Vienna, Budapest & Transylvania).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I wrote for television for a few years, but now I make a living in real estate. I still love to write, and always find some time to do so.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Artistic or creative endeavors, especially writing, and photography . I'm also quite funny (beep beep). I once made deadpan-comic Steven Wright crackup at ten in the morning.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
