My self-summary
Help me - this site is destroying my life! Yes, slowly and in an insidious & meticulous fashion it's stealing my time away like a colorful musical slot machine in a dark corner of a labyrinthine casino, from which there is little hope of escape. Nope - I am chained to it like a shriveled addict. I feel like I'm loaded down with quarters & loaded up with fruity cocktails. I...just...keep...cranking...the arm in hopes of hearing the dinging sound of "jackpot!" I try every line, I try every photo in my arsenal. I've played it up, I've played it down. I've been through hairstyles & harangues. Maybe the one thing that's missing is a hefty bank account? Mine's ok. I can afford fun, but I don't have a Lear jet. I know not. It all seems like such a crap shoot.

Yes, it is up to you to steal me away from this insidious monster. This beast. This carousel of false hope. I see the brass ring every day, and yet, as I grab it, it seems to vanish before my eyes. Then another one appears. I am in the Twilight Zone, but there are no matter-of-fact quips from Rod Serling explaining my plight. No ma'am, not in this bizarro universe. On here I see women jumping out of airplanes, shooting at targets, dressed to the nines in sequin gowns & filing into red carpet events (& these are the same women). Gee whillikers, GI Jane, I think you need to consider a career as a special agent. No one plays anything down on here. Let's go take a photo on top of the Taj Mahal, or on the fingertip of the Cristo Redentor statue. Watch that step! Don't you dare to appear human or normal...let's use another word "approachable." Rather, just maximize everything & spin things to make yourself look like the biggest bang in the fireworks arsenal. I must say, I'm not overly impressed by such things. Ladies...I have been to many said locations & been to many events. I have tasted the nectar from the chalice, I just feel nauseous & a bit pretentious spouting off about it on a dating site. There are other ways to set yourself apart from the pack (a well-placed smile & an open mind are wonderful hooks) - and just a tip from a lonely traveler in the dating desert...it's much more powerful if I learn something amazing about you by accident rather than have it slung in my face up front.

I am a down-to-earth, friendly, accomplished, educated guy with a career I love & an open slot for the right gal. I've seen a good bit of the planet & plan to see more. Where's my hippy chick, my down-to-earth girl without affectation or pretension? Do I have to travel 500 miles to find her? I hope not. Where's the "I'm not afraid to take a walk on the wild side, or eat street food fried up by an illegal immigrant." Where's "I smell natural because we've been walking around all day, but will you give me a foot massage anyway?" Why yes, I will! That about sums me up - or what I am looking for, at least. Intelligent, kind-hearted & natural. Onward!
What I’m doing with my life
Independent filmmaking. This includes, but is not limited to writing/reading/editing scripts, securing equipment, casting, location scouting, talking with strangers like I am Huell Howser (that part can be interesting - my friend once had a gun pulled on him by a crotchety stranger when he asked the man if he could use his property for a shoot), long drives, SAG paperwork, Final Cut Pro, music rights, sniffing craft services food in hopes of avoiding botulism...and finally, personality conflicts - yay! It's not compartmentalized like the giant projects. It's sure as hell not boring.

I have a great friend & creative partner who has explored the independent region of the filmmaking galaxy a few more times than I, the path there is not yet well trodden and we're currently doing some pioneering together. Or we're both infected or possessed by something. I can't decide which it is. Still I find my hands dipping in so many different barrels to focus on this one end product. But it is very worthwhile if you have a strong stomach.
I’m really good at
Editing, illustration (sketch art), writing sketch comedy, playing keyboards, cooking. I used to play quite a bit of tennis, so I could still claim to be good at that, but I haven't picked up a racquet in awhile.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my eccentric tip-toe heel-to-toe gait (ah, who am I kidding? I don't use my heels to walk at all - I shoulda been a ballerina :p) or the way the sun reflects off my skin that never seems to brown to a golden native-like crisp. I live in a Latino/hipster mixed part of town where little kids seem to stare at me like I'm from Mars, for some reason. This effect is heightened by my use of mirrored sunglasses & my hirsute cheeks. I like to walk, eyes straight ahead, ignoring their stares until the last minute, then, "BOO!" Wow - look at 'em scamper! Or I hear (in Spanish - yes I speak a little, though I pretend not to) "Mommy, mommy! But mommy! Here comes the hairy man!" What can I say? If they're gonna stare, I'm gonna scare. I like the attention.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - 'The Sun Also Rises' 'The Shining' Movies - 'A Clockwork Orange' 'Time After Time' 'Scent of a Woman' TV Shows - 'The Prisoner' (60s, with Patrick McGoohan), 'Lost' 'Fringe' 'Sliders' 'Heroes' 'American Horror Story' Music - 'Toad the Wet Sprocket' 'Jonas Steur' 'Eric Johnson' 'Wendy Carlos'
The six things I could never do without
Women in all their glorious shapes & forms (especially women who appreciate the art of leg & foot massage), 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
The genius of J.J. Abrams' television writing. Doctor Walter Bishop listening to Yaz in an abandoned taxi; the Observer pouring an entire shaker of pepper & piling "11 sliced jalapenos" onto a rare roast beef sandwich; Desmond listening to Mama Cass Elliot as he works out in an underground bunker...also, the intensely interesting mind of David Lynch as expressed through his vast body of work over the years. The comforting fact that it takes a lot of mental fortitude to "zig" while everyone else is "zagging."
On a typical Friday night I am
Hooking up the moonshine still in my bathroom & hoping it doesn't explode; coming up with character sketches; eating Thai take-out; lining up fifty hard-boiled eggs while watching 'Cool Hand Luke' & racing Paul Newman from my living room; editing my profile in the (hopefully) non-futile attempt to attract a mate. I must note that in person I'll do damn near anything for a laugh - like a naked homeless panhandler, pretending to tap dance on the sidewalk. If somebody writes me pissed off about an off-color joke I might make on here, I'm just going to have a hissy fit. My voice will get all squeaky & bent out of shape & I'm just gonna have a hissy - not! It's not that I don't respect your right to be prissy & offended, it's just that...well, these are just words, and I also value my right to free speech. So, let's see...shaving capuchin monkeys to serve as unpaid extras in a campy, offbeat movie about a downed UFO in the Nevada desert. Man, they look creepy cool in silver suits! Now if I could just stop them from chirping, chattering & scampering away like little perambulatory raccoons. Maybe Xanax is the answer. A little crushed pill in their morning snack, perhaps? JOKE, people. Please, let's keep the mood light, this is not a board meeting, it's a dating site - plus, if I were a Puritan, I'd have rounded the sides of my hair :P; watching 'Eraserhead' without volume & listening to 'Do It Again' by The Chemical Brothers on endless loop; counting the number of times helicopters circle overhead as I cuss like Charles Bukowski on an ugly bender.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a foot fetish. I might like to own a drive-in movie theater some day. Viva la drive-in!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 26–45
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You want to know more about me & possibly meet up. I am really not as bizarre as my answers might make me seem - ok, maybe just a little bit. Nah, I just have a low tolerance for people who try really hard to conform to a mind-numbing standard, so some of my answers & observations are merely a protest against all the squeaky-clean picture-perfect piñata profiles. If you
don't "get it" I don't really care. Stop shaking your head & just move on - I am not for you. That said, if you do "get it" & I made you smile at all, I am a very approachable guy, and I am quite nice. Don't hesitate to say hi :).
