My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a kind, creative, passionate, affectionate, communicative, fun guy.

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 metaphor)
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 laugh:
-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 soft
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 Evanston, kid"

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 shelter.

1. iphone.
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 point

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 Bass?
...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 weird)

any thoughts?
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.

lastly, if okCupid says you are 100% my enemy. I have never had a nemesis before and I am curious why okCupid thinks we should brawl
