My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This really is "do it yourself" blind dating, isn't it? An act of hopeful optimism on all of our parts, and good for us. You never know where you'll meet someone special. It could just as well be here as anywhere else, right? (And more likely than, say, a loud bar -- I'm very social but never really liked the bar scene.)

I am indeed 48, and have indeed never been married. But it hasn't been for lack of interest or effort. There have been lessons to learn along the way, some bad timing and frankly a couple of regrettable relationship decisions, but they all leave me smarter, happier, healthier and more ready, willing and able than ever to pursue a great relationship. I really do love commitment, I do hope to get married, and I do hope to have a family.

We might really enjoy each other's company if...

you're smart, funny, laugh a lot, make others laugh and like to talk for hours...

you enjoy everything from an afternoon at Wrigley to a stroll by the lake, from vegging out at the movies to evenings in a theater for dance, a play some music or a Broadway show...

you're a good talker AND a good listener...

you think a great kiss is the sexiest thing in the universe...

you agree that few things feel sweeter than when two people’s hands fit perfectly together...

along with all of that romance and culture you crack up at the goofiest cartoon or Monty Python sketch, and sometimes enjoy saying the absolutely most politically incorrect thing you can think of, just for fun.

If some or all of these describe you, the things you like to do, and the way you'd like to feel in a great relationship, then I think it'd be a great idea for you to write me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a self-made guy who runs his a media production company that creates broadcast and online content with Chicago theater dance and music companies, Broadway shows and tours, and regional not for profits. We've won 17 Emmys for our shows on companies like The Second City, Steppenwolf, Jump Rhythm Jazz Project, The Joffrey Ballet and River North Chicago Dance Company. I'm also a company member of Lookingglass Theatre Company, and we just won the 2011 Tony Award for Regional Theater. So proud!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and responding; making people laugh; making people comfortable; getting people to trust me; putting myself on the line to make hopes and dreams and passions come true (sounds corny, but it's true); carrying on a conversation; asking questions; writing and creating; and kissing. There, I said it. Sticking to it.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The way people relate to each other via the arts, politics, sports -- relationships fascinate me, and I tend to think of every facet of the human experience in terms of relationships -- how we listen, how we respond and how we work together professionally and personally.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical Friday night! Could be in a theater, could be out with friends, could be crashing at home.
