Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm strong - both mentally and physically, I write prolifically, I
paint, I cook often and I can get lonely when I'm not doing these
things. So rather than become obsessive about my work and hobbies,
I'm here to put in the time to meet someone who makes me want to
spend my free time with her. No bones, no beans. I am a firm
believer in stating what I want and not wasting anyone's time. The
journey may have a few starts, stops and misfires, but I search
with due diligence. Give me that balance I need in my life so I
don't become a freak with ceiling high stacks of short stories and
bizarre paintings in every corner. Oh, I love doing both those
things, just help me prune my tendencies, so I don't bury myself
with my creations. Let me look forward to some Netflix with you, or
massaging your feet after a long day over a glass or two of wine.
Let's get out on the tennis court.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Independent filmmaking. Though I shuffle around in many different
areas of production, I really enjoy video editing. I came into the
fold as a writer (former newspaper section editor). And when I have
insomnia at night, I find myself writing science fiction and horror
short stories. That ball of wax has grown pretty large. Maybe you
could, help put me to sleep at night. As I mentioned in the last
section, I paint. I actually create frames and canvases with a good
friend and partner who also paints, and then draft sketches and
paint with acrylics. I do this as time allows. My life is many
things, but it's not boring. It is missing a good woman, though.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing (comedy/sci-fi/horror), character development (I spent
years writing sketch performance - mainly comedy), painting (some
would say), cooking (I say, and I used to own a small restaurant,
so others will vouch for me on this), consuming all of the above
with voracious zeal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Depending upon the scenario - a sincere man who holds his head high
& gives a firm handshake while looking you in the eye, or a
memorable, firm hug...or...a unique looking, long-haired throwback
to a time when car engines rumbled and wah wah guitars could be
heard on every FM radio station. If we start a dialogue, I can
entertain & charm you. You'll notice a deep well of compassion
& a low tolerance for all things superficial & vapid. Note
- I grew long locks and side 'chops to portray a character. I had a
hand in creating him & I wanted him to look like a cross
between something that blew in from about 1971, off the cover of a
dust collecting offbeat rock album and a buddy character in a cult
horror movie. I created him, I'm wearing the mask of him in my
daily life now, & I'm sort of enjoying the look. But just so
you know, I do pull my hair back & neaten up before a date.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good woman in my life would make me a happy guy. My kingdom for a
horse! Water, water everywhere & not a drop to drink! Keeping
fingers crossed & rolling the dice. Good seafood (I can go for
awhile without, but in a world without seafood, I'd be sad), great
television & film writing, music, enough money to be happy, a
pill that would extend my life forever, so I could live like the
little robot boy from 'AI' only the adult version - plus I'd want
all my parts to be human ;).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Quantum physics, nature, cooking, writing, scary things, design,
music, travel & women.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Writing, making notes on movies or shows I watch on Netflix,
HuluPlus & the like, cooking up something new, enjoying a good
beer with good tunes playing in the background. I'd like to find a
lovely, fun, clever, cool lady to join me at a drive-in double
feature, or with whom I could grab a brew or two at a local
watering hole, haunt a donut shop, or spend a quiet evening at home
with some wine & a good movie or two.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Gee - I dunno. I have a "blankety-blank." Two words. Chat with me
for awhile & the reveal will come. Leaving a little mystery is
always more interesting.
