One day I'll come up with the perfect blurb to capture my unique and multifaceted personality; one that communicates my gentleness-informed-by-strength, sense of humor, and desire to learn & grow.
Today is not that day.
They say "There are two mantras in life: 'Yuck' and 'Yum'." I'm trying hard to be about the latter.
Truthfully I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for, but I do understand you could get a hook up or a booty call anywhere if that's what you wanted. Please trust that I'm not here to waste your time or mine and I'm genuinely interested in meeting someone great :)
I want to spend time with someone smart, fun, funny, and kind. Someone who is interested and interesting. Someone who is paying attention to the world and has an opinion on it. Who's not afraid be sincere. So let's hang out, get together, make something happen.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to LA from metro Detroit to follow my creative calling and seek my fortune (lololol). Writing and directing is what I want to do but in the meantime I'm producing videos for a non profit, various YouTubers, and working crew gigs.
I really like carpentry and woodworking, having some luck making money at it lately.
I love music but never learned to play an instrument as a kid so now I'm learning to play piano & the drums.
I’m really good at
Listening, talking, driving, helping out, ping pong, handshakes, getting people together, building things, spirited debate, thoughtful discussion, volleyball (ok not really), swimming, getting all of the groceries into the house in one trip, making people laugh, drawing, writing, skiing, enjoying myself, stirring the pot, triumph in the face of adversity.
The first things people usually notice about me
Firm handshake? I couldn't say, but would be curious to hear it from you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I want to hear all about the stuff you like, and then have smiling arguments about it.
Books: Really into graphic novels lately, always down for some soft science and human origins stuff and also last time I read the Harry Potter series I was 24 and cried at least once per book.
Movies: This should be a whole discussion but let's say my top 3 are Amelie, Fight Club, and In Bruges.
TV Shows: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Community,
Music: I find Rufus Wainwright's version of "Hallelujah" to be the superior version and when I hear "bum bum bum ba da da bum" I get excited for "Under Pressure" not "Ice Ice Baby". Like with people my musical taste is hard to explain but it's fairly specific and I know it when I see it.
The six things I could never do without
Friends and Family, my ambition, a sense of striving and
progression, novelty, a creative outlet, something to read/watch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The big stuff like Life, Death, and Infinity but little stuff like potential side projects, or whether or not my life goals are realistic and attainable or some delusional grandiose pipe dream. The little dishonesties that people use to keep their lives together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, at the movies, loitering on a friend's porch, at a comedy
show, playing "Settlers of Catan", at home watching Netflix wishing
I had something to do but not wanting to do anything, really.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm trying to learn the lessons that tragedy is teaching me, and
live with joy and purpose and compassion and be better in
Sometimes when I'm browsing OKC profiles I'll think "Cheer up,
weirdos! This is supposed to be fun."
You should message me if
You're smart, creative, adventurous, and have a fun sense of humor that strays into 'goofy' from time to time. If you know the value of honesty. If you've worked to have the right attitude. If you're not afraid. And if you have impeccable taste in men.
