My self-summary
I know I talk way too much, and what I'm about to say seems pretty cliched. But I still say it's hard to summarize me in just a few words, or a few sentences. I've been (and I still am) a musician, an actor, a lawyer, a gamer, an announcer, a brother, an uncle, and so many things.
What I’m doing with my life
Around the end of 2012, I walked away from my job with the State of Florida - to make a long story short, it had become absolutely unbearable and was slowing killing me, literally and figuratively. I've opened up my own practice as an attorney : it's a lot more work, but I enjoy just having to worry about getting clients and trying cases as opposed to counteracting lies from management and dealing with administrative/bureaucratic garbage.

I still call play-by-play announcing for roller derby (2014 marks my seventh season/year announcing for derby). A friend turned me on to the sport (and yes, it *is* a sport) around 2006, and I've been hooked ever since, good and bad. These days, however, I'm regularly calling for "only" one league now, and I dig it. I get to travel with them throughout the state, and sometimes out of state, as well. The ladies in the women's league are good people, and I consider several of the skaters to be among my best friends in my life right now. I won't make you travel with me to bouts, but I will warn you in advance, you had best be comfortable with me being close to these women. (Psst. If it helps you, pretty much the entire league is either in happily-committed relationships, lesbian, or young enough to be my daughter, which even I admit is kinda creepy. ;) )

When I'm not doing that, I have a small-but-loyal group of friends who does stuff all around Orlando, Tampa, and even Polk County. You can usually find me Tuesday nights at the local bar with some friends, competing in their trivia contest. If our team wins, we get a $50 gift card, which covers the cost of my dinner (barring a $5 tip for my server, who always does an outstanding job of service). We've been known to place in the top three teams on a pretty consistent basis, and even gone on a few outright winning streaks. I'm still totally into video games - in addition to my PC, I currently own a PS2, a PS3, a Wii, a Nintendo 64, and even a Sega Dreamcast and a Sega Genesis. While cleaning up around my place, I busted out the old Genesis and Nintendo 64 for some fun times for games I haven't played in years. (I've still never owned an Xbox or an Xbox360. Go figure.) I love the theme parks like Disney and Universal. I stopped going a few years back because I got so busy with derby, and I never had anyone to go with. Several months ago, I was gifted with a seasonal pass for Disney. I'm always looking for someone for company for trips to Disney. Maybe that can be you, sometime soon. :)
I’m really good at
Though I'm not nearly as good as some of these kids who seem like they practice it all day (and forget about school), I will whoop up on you at Guitar Hero or Rock Band. ;) I do various impressions of anyone from Bill Clinton to Goofy to generic rednecks to Marlon Brando in "The Godfather" to Eric Cartman and other stuff to make my friends laugh. Also, in learning to watch my calories, I've learned a little bit about cooking (read: a dish or two that can't be done in the microwave), and make a mean chicken parmigian, and a halfway-decent pizza.
The first things people usually notice about me
Wow. Not sure how to answer this. It might be eyes, but I'm not sure - I haven't heard many people mention my eyes as of late, and it also sounds kinda cliched to me sometimes. (shrugs) Maybe that I can be a little bit shy and reserved when first meeting people in person, compared to how I can be online? Let me ask around and I'll get back to you on this. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food - I love me some Texas de Brazil steakhouse in Orlando (or even Tampa). My friends and I used to go about once a month. I love Mom's fried chicken cutlets (especially when she makes them into chicken parmigiana, which is pretty rare these days). I love me some Italian food (it's my heritage), seafood (shrimp, grouper, and the occasional salmon), and even a good steak or burger.

Movies - If you're pointing a gun at my head and making me get this down to five movies, I'd probably go with: "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" (which, if you get really geeky about it, is a pretty cool story about how people react in the face of death/doom/losing and just plain ol' getting older), "Casino," "The Matrix," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," and "The Blues Brothers." Bear in mind, however, as far as movies I've really loved over the years, this is a criminally-short list. ;)

Music - Yes, I know this section's the equivalent of "Ben Hur" or "Heaven's Gate." I was a college music student, and still consider myself a musician. It still means a lot to me; what can I say? Among the bands in my CD collection and on iTunes are the Rolling Stones, Tesla, Van Halen (both Dave and Sammy eras), Queensryche (from "Operation: Mindcrime" to "Promised Land"), Queen, AC/DC, Motorhead, Metallica (from "Kill 'Em All" to "Garage Inc.," though realistically, they really went downhill after the Black Album), Megadeth, Killswitch Engage, the Black Crowes, Sting, the Police, Sisters of Mercy, Peter Murphy, Asia, Bill Cosby, Bill Hicks, Richard Jeni, Dana Gould, Jeff Wayne, the Cult, Corrosion of Conformity, Danzig, D.A.D. (formerly known as Disneyland After Dark), Duran Duran, Foo Fighters, Billy Joel, Bruce Hornsby, Bruce Springsteen ("Tunnel of Love" is hugely underrated), Aerosmith, John Cougar Mellencamp, Kid Rock, Mutha's Day Out, a few albums and cuts from Prince, Disturbed, the Donnas, Faith No More, Garbage, Huey Lewis and the News, Iron Maiden, KISS, Lacuna Coil, No Doubt, Motorhead, Rush, Seal, and countless others. How's that for a start?

Books - I find myself reading a lot of non-fiction these days, for whatever reason. Among that which I've read (and liked) includes "Live From New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live" by Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller, "Everybody Wants Some: The Van Halen Saga" by Ian Christe, and "Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling" by Bret Hart. As far as fiction, I love most of Scott Turow's stuff (especially "Presumed Innocent," "Pleading Guilty," and "Reversible Errors"), Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series (though "Mostly Harmless" fell flat for me), and Dave Barry wrote two fiction novels, "Big Trouble" and "Tricky Business," that were funny as hell.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
1) Definitely my car - for all the traveling I do around the south half of Florida. :)
2) Good books or magazines to read.
3) My watch or my cellphone to help me keep track of the time.
4) Internet access (duh!)
5) A comfortable bed or couch on which to sleep
6) A CD player or iPod or something similar on which to listen to music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
topics including (but not limited to) the past, roller derby, cases that I handle at work, when 5 p.m. will be happening, what I might do in an evening to either have fun or to get something accomplished, and what I can do to help get the life I really want.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure I have a Friday night that's "typical." I might want to come home and rest up and finish laundry before the weekend and whatever plans I might have. I might be going to see a movie or a show that one of my friends might be in. I might plant myself in front of the computer or TV and play video games until my eyelids get heavy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
... I've probably already said it somewhere else in my profile or in the questions I've answered.. If you want the good stuff, you have to get to know me. ;)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 26–46
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
+ You can send a message other than a simple "Hi" or "Hello" or "What's up." I freely admit that I'm sometimes hypnotized by those women who have the physical qualities I prefer, but at this point in my life, if you can't keep up your end of a conversation, you won't hold my attention for long.
+ You want someone with a brain who still wants to have fun.
+ You enjoy (or at least don't mind) getting in the car for a road trip every now and then.
+ You're not the paranoid, jealous type.
+ You like all sorts of music and video games.
+ You're down for company for a trip to Disney - especially if it means hitting as many roller coasters/thrill rides as possible.
