I never know what to write in these things. I work a lot to pay the
bills. But when I'm not working I still like to be active and have
fun. I have a wide range of interests. Sometimes I think I have too
many interests. But it helps keep life from being boring. A few of
my interests include: photography, running, camping, the beach,
summer in general, golf, bowling, dancing. I like summer much more
than winter. I like to go out and watch some of the local
Growing up in the 60's and 70's I have a bit of hippy in me. But I
also love the styles and lifestyle of the 30's and 40's. When I'm
dressed I like to dress well. I often wear a suit and tie not
because it's required somewhere but because I look good in it. I
even own tuxedo's that I like to wear to orchestra concerts or any
other reason I can find. Getting dressed up makes an event special.
On the other hand there are times that it is much more comfortable
to wear nothing at all. A nude resort or beach is a wonderful
feeling on a sunny day.
What I’m doing with my life
My occupation and preoccupation is photography and video production. I work in that as much as I can for the schools, a local production company and my own company (which is real slow due to the economy). When I'm not getting paid I still do it for my own artistic interests.
To help pay the bills I also do numerous other things. Right now I am subbing at Lansing area schools. For the holiday season I am also working at Best Buy.
I spent this summer in Europe, traveling around the Germanic countries and taking a course in teaching English as a foreign language.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is I'm quiet and seem shy. It's true that when I was younger I was
painfully shy. But I got better. Now when I meet new people I am a
bit reserved at first. But it's because I'm learning their
personalities so I know how to relate to them. But once I get to
know you a bit who knows what I will say or do.
People also notice right away that I smile a lot. I'd rather be
unreasonably happy than down all the time as so many people seem to
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In music I like most styles except not much rap or opera. I'm
particularly fond of classic rock and big band swing. My favorite
singer is Bing Crosby with Dean Martin a close second.
I really like old movies. Some of my favorites are The Thin Man,
Singing in the Rain, Bringing Up Baby, It Happened One Night,
Casablanca. My favorite actor is Cary Grant. Anything by him is
good and I've seen most of them. Of course I watch current movies
too. A good movie is good no matter when it was made.
The six things I could never do without
Well that's five, this is a list in progress.
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends on the Friday. I might be working. If a band I know is
playing somewhere it's likely I will be watching them. Or I might
just be at home watching a movie or cruising the internet seeing
what I can learn.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been to nudist camps and beaches a number of times.
It humors me the number of people who in this section say they
won't reveal any private info here in public. The heading is the
most private thing you are willing to admit. Everyone can say
something here. If you take the pepperoni off your pizza before you
eat it and that's the most private thing you can think to admit
than it fits. These answers don't have to be shocking, though those
answers would be interesting.
You should message me if
If I sound intriguing. It doesn't hurt to give it a shot and see
what happens. I'm lots of fun.
