Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a kind, creative, passionate, affectionate, communicative, fun
I am not short, I am not tall. I will not eat green eggs and ham, I
will not eat them, sam I am (actually that is not true- I made them
for my mom when I was a kid).
I recently relocated to chicago from nyc and I am happy to be
spending time with my family and my friends. Dr Suess's "Green Eggs
and Ham" aside, I do love different things in life. I am both
laid-back and passionate. I like museums and sports. I studied wine
and laugh at myself so I don't sound pretentious when I order fancy
grape juice. Recently I saw John Malkovich as a serial killer in an
opera, then went out and sang a Blues Brothers song at Karaoke.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being back in Chicago, I am exploring the city and enjoying it. Any
suggestions are welcomed
I started a professional theater company when I was a sophomore in
High School, and it is the company with which I still act, direct,
sweep up, write plays, and produce.
This fall, I started my Masters at DePaul in Acting.
Oh, and sometimes I consult for booze companies on how to market,
brand, and especially make better cocktails... my drinks are well
known for their fun, complexity, balance, and an ass-kick of a good
time. (I'm sure that somewhere in that description there's a life
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making an awesome meal out of what ever is in the back of your
fridge. and making an awesome cocktail out of what ever booze is
dusty in your liquor cabinet
leaving the drama on the stage
mixing high brow and low brow
laughing at little things. well, I am good at laughing at big
things too. My humor is not size specific.
I have had some funny experiences that I think will make you
-like I was tricked into being on the game show "cash cab".
-like the time Mr T gave me diet advice (Twinkies)
-Or the time I jokingly posted a Costco Coffin on Craig's List...
and got a bunch of responses!
The list is endless but I think these are better stories in person
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am often told that I have great, masculine hands... strong and
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
MUSIC: all but that one band i can never remember.
TV: Anything on HBO, particularly The Wire and Deadwood. Arrested
Development, Breaking Bad. I just watched Chicago Code on Netflix
and laughed at this: "learn to play with pain... this isn't
Books: I have been going back and rereading some of my favorites-
Gatsby, Lolita, To Kill A Mockingbird, Dorothy Parker, and a few
others I read in high school. Also reading silly pulp for fun...
and plays, sociology and theory for school. I am writing a play
about Jackson Pollock and his wife Lee Krasner so I have been
reading a ton about them, their era, other artists, and a bunch of
that truly amazing shit.
Food: I like to cook and eat. I am a food lover without being one
of those pretentious people. Also I mentioned that I make awesome
cocktails .... but I am not a cocktologist
favorite tree: hm. i like birch. and bamboo. but i see more birch
in the midwest then bamboo
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
friends and family seem like a given... so does food and
do you remember anyone's phone number anymore?
2. Movie popcorn. must I say more?
3. punctuation. imagine if there wasnt punctuation wouldnt it be
hard to understand what we were trying to write down wow just
thinking about it makes me wish i could use and exclamation
4. after writing #3 I feel like I should rest
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
tidbits such as:
...If you have one index and two iindices, why don't you have one
Kleenex and two Kleenices?
...ever notice how most men face the spigot when showering and most
women face away?
...Why are Chilean Sea Bass neither from Chile, from the Sea, or
...People mess up "you're" and "your"...aren't you glad they don't
mess up "our" and "hour"? (it would make an hour of our time really
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
never a typical, as i'm really flexible with my plans (although my
yoga flexibility is improving too). but i love the gamut-- so, if
you're excited about wearing either sweats or a little black dress,
then i'm the guy on your arm.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
um... i don't always enjoy capital letters (true)
One thing that i guess would be considered "private" since I don't
mention it: I just found a photo of me in a 9/11 coffee-table book
where I am leading a candle light vigil in Union Square Park.
