Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a native Angelina, and proud of it. I work in a creative field,
and I live for the precious hours I can carve out to work on my own
projects. I love old movies, and old things, and strange and
I'm looking for someone to share all the best things in life--which
in my book pretty much means spending equal time exploring,
creating, and spending time with great people.
Among other things I truly dig are...
Long conversations, people who like telling tales (tall or
I think meeting people used to be more fun before the completely
non-spontaneous era of online dating. But since this is how we do
it now, here I am. I'm looking for a serious relationship--so not
super-interested in the whole casual hookup side of OkCupid.
I'm much wittier in person, I promise. Not so great at the whole
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an independent filmmaker and film editor...
I direct films for live concerts (the ones that go behind the
musicians while they're playing). I also edit professionally for
features, web, and commercials--and I teach a high school film
class as well. So, I'm always balancing. It took some years of
practice but I've finally gotten good at keeping the balance. And
I'm making a living getting to do creative work every day, which is
a goal of mine which I'm very happy to have accomplished.
My next step: I'm writing an indie feature that I hope to direct by
Just got to do a writer's residency for the above mentioned
screenplay, which was definitely in my top ten best life
experiences. That's pretty much my ideal life--having unlimited
time to create while people feed me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making Spanish tortilla w/o getting egg on the walls.
Knowing where to find things like 19th Century spectacles, and
horses that are trained to pull stagecoaches.
Random, mostly useless phrases in other languages.
Finding cool vintage clothing. Identifying the year of an old movie
based on fashion.
I like to think I'm good at listening to people. Friends come to me
with problems--and I like hearing them out.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This question is annoying because it traps you between giving a
boring answer and a cloyingly cute one.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time daydreaming about the next or current
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a friend's house, laughing a lot. Or playing cards, even though
I am the shittiest poker player on planet earth.
Or a bar. Preferably the kind that has a neon sign, isn't too
crowded, and knows how to make a dirty martini for godssakes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
