I'm a reasonably intelligent dude with a lot of things to say, but I've also been rigorously trained to listen. I live for open and honest communication so much that it's become my profession.
I'm a middle child, which has taught me the value of compromise and to frame my own ambitions within the greater good.
I'm an enabler -- in the positive sense -- a collaborator and a facilitator, an artist who has his own vision but is also sneakily good at bringing someone else's goal to fruition.
And finally: I'm ready to meet the right person. I've gone through the career-obsessive and the serial dating phases of my life and I'm at the stage where I'm ready for something real.
In all honesty, I'm living by my wits. I have the kind of job that makes people say things like, "Yeah, that fits," when they find out what I do. But I don't know that I want to do it forever.
I suppose at this point I'm more open to the limitless possibility of tomorrow than I ever have been before. I want to meet the right person and start the next adventure in my life.
I don't believe in writer's block. The words are always there. I do believe in life-block; Sometimes you just don't want to write.
Journalism is my stock-in-trade, but I'd like to ultimately write novels one day. I often entertain myself (and select others) with haiku, song parody lyrics and hastily prepared amateur rap.
For philosophical truth: It's a Wonderful Life.
Give me good conversation and fresh water and that's my world.
