Me: I want to meet a nerdy girl.
My Friend: You need to go where the nerdy girls are.
Me: Well, there is the Star Trek convention...
How cool would it be if we met at a Star Trek convention? What a
great story. First date a Quark's. If you think it sounds cool too,
then you may be the girl for me.
I live in Los Angeles. I'm guessing several of you do too.
I am a nerd. I mean it. A real Star Trek watching, board game
playing, techno geek nerd. I am the genuine artice. No pretend
hipster, irony glasses here.
Still with me? Awesome.
I am an actor.
And still, still with me?
Ok, if you are still reading, let's get specific...
I had always done what people told me I was "supposed to do". Go
into business, raise a family, make lots of money and spend it on
silly toys designed to make one happy. I did it, and I was really
good at it.
But suprisingly, I was not happy.
So when I finally saw an opportunity to live my acting dream , I
grabbed it. Best choice I have ever made.
And not suprisingly, I am very happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the first time in my life, I have happiness in my career.
Acting fulfills me like nothing else has before. My two previous
careers were Financial Advisor and Computer Network Engineer. Over
two decades of business and tech were more than enough for me.
Finally, I am doing something for myself. And I am loving every
minute of it.
I am undertaking my health and well being like never before. I
actually discovered that I like Brussel Sprouts and Kale. Yes, I
cook and I am pretty good at it too. I play golf every week, and
I've been riding my bike on the beach. It has already made a
difference and I am still improving my body daily.
I am passionate, powerful, and I like to have fun. I have all new
friends and they have so many different interests. I have been
trying new foods, new activities, and new experiences.
I already knew that I liked a good challenge. Well, this adventure
has all been an amazing challenge for me. I have been learning a
new career, finding new, positive people to be in my life, and
learning to live alone for my first time ever.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making a difference for people in the world. I am an amazing
listener and I can really get what is important to people.
And having fun. I am committed to living a passionate, playful
life. I want to enjoy it all and I want people around me to enjoy
it too. Besides, isn't fun the best thing to have?
And I am going to declare it here. I am really good at ACTING. I
love saying that.
And strategies. Both game playing and life living. After all, they
are essentially the same thing.

WARNING! This is a dangerous section to write and read. It is very
easy to look here and find things that you don't like, find
"reasons" to not make a connection. While I hope we share some
common interests, I know that opposites attract too. Remember that
as you read on...
Food: I am eating healthier than I ever have before. But the new
foods I am discovering are amazing. I love most Asian foods, but I
like plenty of other cuisines as well. I am always up for throwing
a steak on the BBQ Grill. I just stay away from heavy duty spices.
I prefer to taste my food, not fight it.
Movies: Ocean's Eleven, Bird Cage, 5th Element, The Sting, Thomas
Crown Affair, The Matrix, Rounders, Inception, Godfather 1&2,
and Casablanca. Comedy, Sci Fi, Action, and adventure are my
favorites. But I am open to other genres.
Television: My career pursuit is to be a regular on a sucessful
Sitcom. So, I watch a lot of Sitcoms. I try each one when it
premieres, and study them to see what works and what doesn't. Oh,
part of the studying includes laughing and enjoying it. And I do
have a few dramas in the mix too. I still enjoy watching reruns of
Star Trek (any version) and Battestar Galactica too.
Theatre and Live Shows: Comedy clubs are a big part of my life. I
enjoy improv the most, but I also love good standup and sketch. I
like live theatre and musicals. I can see Phantom of the Opera or A
Chorus Line any time. I like unique stuff too, like Blue Man Group
and Cirque Du Soil.
Music: Classic Rock, Jazz, Smooth Jazz, RnB, Some Classical,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The ability to tell and listen to stories.
My health and fitness.
My friends and family.
Comedy and laughter.
And my smart phone. Aren't we all supposed to say that?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Living my dreams and passions. I am committed to a life of passion
and play. Everything I do lives inside of that commitment.
And I think a lot about who I really am. It is a new inquiry and I
have having fun discovering myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It's probably something nerdy. Maybe board games with friends,
Netflix an old Sci Fi show, or building a killer robot (yeah, been
a while since I did the whole robot thing)
I do enjoy going to see live comedy. Improv, sketch, and standup
are usually a welcome activity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a pretty open book. I love to share myself with people. If you
want to know something about me, just ask.
You should message me if

...you see things in my profile that you may not like, but you get
that opposites attract.
And finally, if you are a woman who knows the words to the female
part of Paradise by the Dashboard Light. I have always wanted to
try Karaoke with that song.
