Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived the life of a vagabond since I entered the world. Born
in Ohio, then on to Pennsylvania, Maryland, two places in
Washington state, Florida, Massachusetts, two summers in The
Bahamas, and on to L.A. I just spent a summer in a nasty place
called Albuquerque, too. Should'a heeded Bugs Bunny's advice and
taken a left.
In regard to personality, I'd say I'm a blend of Johnny Cash, Tom
Joad from "The Grapes of Wrath," and George Carlin. I'm the strong,
silent type who feels great accomplishment in making you laugh and
feel good and, most importantly, to think.
I still shoot film 'cause it looks better, I listen to vinyl
records 'cause they sound better, and I think that hard lines work
better than wireless. I'm a meat-and-potatoes kinda guy. I often
stop what I'm doing to join in with the nightly chorus of coyotes
who start singing from the hills.
Look, most of this is my own personal opinion. Really, if you want
to know what kind of fella I am, ask my Mother. I can get you her
number or email address on request.
I'm looking for someone who is comfortable with herself, who can
back up her opinions with reasons why, who knows that expanding her
mind is necessary for the evolution of the individual...someone who
has a sexy side as well as intelligence...someone who can drop
everything on a whim in order to take an unexpected break and drive
down to ride Splash Mountain...someone who has the smarts to bring
towels and a change of clothes to Splash Mountain, because I often
forget that part.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing. A lot. And raising funds for charity. A lot. Walking, I do
that a lot, too. And I seem to do laundry an awful lot as well. I
think it's because I'm very tall and more cloth goes into making my
clothing, resulting in fewer items per load. Anyway, I could go on
about it, but I'll just accept the laundry issue as it is and move
on. Anybody got a mug of detergent I could borrow?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dusting the ceiling fans.
Getting things off the top shelf for others.

My dashing looks.
My impeccable sense of rugged yet classic style.
My sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My favorite question. I'm an avid reader, mostly of fiction from
the mid-20th century. Steinbeck, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, these are
my heroes. Hunter Thompson. Henry Miller. I can't get enough.
I don't watch TV, either because I work on it or because it's all
just a colossal waste of time. Like the Interweb.
Music is imperative. I'm a soul man and dig stuff from the 60s and
70s like Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Etta James, young Van Morrison,
Aretha Franklin. I love Ray LaMontagne and Josh Ritter and Brett
Dennen and Cat Stevens. Paul Simon. Bob Dylan is the closest we'll
ever come to Shakespeare, even though Bob is so much better.
Mumford & Sons and The Band and Ryan Adams are all killer,
Movies...big question. Anything by John Cassavetes, Woody Allen,
Sidney Lumet, Scorsese, Hal Ashby, or the Marx Brothers. I love
Shaun of the Dead and The Naked Gun. Not into summer blockbusters
unless they have strong characters. I loathe poorly-done special
effects but love good writing.
As for food, I don't eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

theirs on a regular basis)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
you. Which is weird since I don't even know you.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
either working at work or working at home. I'm currently taking
several months off from work to finish a novel, so I'll probably be
writing at home until Friday nights in April.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Tinkerbell really melts my butter. I'd go crazy if I met her in
person. So sexy.

travel and live music and creative things. And if you don't enjoy
things like ego and selfishness and killing and hatred.
If you look like Tinkerbell, that's a plus, too.
