My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello Again Internet! Let the New Adventure begin...

Q: Who the hell am I?
A: Depends on who you ask. I treasure surprises & can't exist without them. I enjoy 'being myself', which can mean a range of traits that's hard to accurately summarize. At times I'm deeply thoughtful, passionate, and/or extremely silly. My level of presence and self awareness certainly ebbs and flows. I'm constantly practicing facing life in a state of humility and surrender, especially to the prospect to ever being perfect. When I'm in it, I'm joyous, and that is not 100% of the time. While I've never pet a tiger or gone cliff-diving in Ireland, I have a great life I wouldn't trade with anyone. My greatest joy is to help others and add to their level of happiness and consciousness, and I'm happy to have found outlets for that in my life.

That said...
Life's too short not to have fun or go after what's special to you, so that quest is part of what I'm seeking in a relationship. Ideally it would be one where we're similar enough to connect but different enough to grow.

Who am I looking for?
-Someone who is looking to explore and partake in those moments of discovery and excitement and some of the chill-out time in between. Someone who is open to fearlessly sharing their innermost feelings, stories, and new experiences. I'm not just saying that either (I'm typing that).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to LA from Alaska 6 years ago (though it's only just now starting to feel like home) and more recently/specifically Westchester to be closer to work (and the beach). My 7:30-4:30 is crafting corporate videos for an international car (and Robot!) company. I take some measure of pride in pursuing my lifelong passions while living responsibly and within my means. I like Robots. And Turtles.

In my spare time I enjoy such activities as improv comedy, hiking, swimming, singing karaoke w/ friends, and occasionally attempting meditation, yoga, volunteering, dodgeball, and ballroom dancing (not all simultaneously). It's very exciting to try new things and to give back to my community. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-copying and pasting the "About Me" section from facebook
-not going on facebook
-impersonating people (half the fun in karaoke too)
-playing silly characters
-speaking with foreign accents including gibberish versions of other languages
-listing things
-inconsistently using punctuation.
-any type of parking aside from parallel
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told a few times that I have nice eyes. Statements like these are 100% effective in causing me to blush.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
FOOD: Greek, Thai, Indian, Italian, and Seafood. Hell, I'll eat just about anything... Except Bacon Pie, Cottage Cheese, or Deviled Eggs (where'd they go get that Devil they put in them?).

On the following I know I've got "eclectic" tastes so I really don't expect or hope for us to have a lot in common other than a shared curiosity to explore outside of what we know we already like...

MOVIES: Genre Movies! Mostly older & foreign stuff. I like movies loaded with explosions, genuine laughs, historical context, action, gangsters, the 1970's, car chases, surreal weirdness, intriguing philosophy, giant monsters, stop-motion, escapism, explosions (did I say that already?), and/or that make me cry (it happens). Pick a genre and I'll scan the mental database for something we might both enjoy. I'm pretty open to sappy romcoms too under the right circumstances... and even looking forward to sitting down and watching The Notebook with the right woman (I'm saving that experience for her).

POSTERS ON MY WALL: Outland, The Ice Pirates, Cobra Mission, The Quiet Earth, and 2019: After the Fall of New York.

TV SHOWS: There's so much great stuff on, but who has the time for all of it? I give up.

MUSIC: I ain't picky but I love 80's music, movie soundtracks, electronica, house, trance, etc. Almost all from the likes of Depeche Mode, Brian Eno, Vangelis (my favorite movie composer), Lazerhawk, Kavinsky, Stelvio Cipriani, Tangerine Dream, Alan Parsons Project, Styx, Black Sabbath, The Beegees, U2, Journey... anything with synthesizers.

BOOKS: Eckhart Tolle, Henri Nouwen, William Golding, Joseph Conrad, Philip K. Dick, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Integrity
The Freedom to be Silly
Awareness
Activity
Human Contact
Love (the good clean kind... Without utensils)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Too much. It'd be nice if this mind-thing had an on-off switch.

- Water Parks! I haven't been to one in 20 years (they didn't have any in Alaska) but the ones near here all have such low ratings. Who wants to go on a road trip to find a good one (or grin & bear it at a bad one)?

- Artistic projects I'd like to put together - Who wants to help me illustrate an awesome new children's book? Or co-create an existential and experimental art film which will be a blast to make and likely never make its budget back, but it'll always be our little creation?

- Robots. They're pretty badass.

- What I'm going to have for lunch.

- Turtles.

- New material for my next stand-up routine. If you're funnier than me (which wouldn't be too difficult) I'd love to see what you've got too.

- Robot Turtles. It's coming. Accept it.

- Various Stuff. Some of it PG-13

- Sex. Duuuh!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually out with friends somewhere or unwinding at home... Or unwinding with friends or out with my home. Huh? Whatever. How about aimlessly wandering around my neighborhood in search of meaning? Or catching up on emails. That kind of crap.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
* Whilst looking for a job my first month in LA, I found myself auditioning for a reality show called "Beauty and the Geek" and was soundly rejected. Apparently I'm neither beautiful nor geeky enough.

* I have absolutely given up on trying to keep up with music. Chances are I've never heard of any of your favorite bands if they're more recent than 1995. This is, of course, a gross generalization.

* I actually consider Sylvester Stallone and Jean-Claude Van Damme to be very capable actors and take the fact that neither has won an Oscar for their acting as evidence that the Academy Awards are a total sham.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Stop kidding me OKC; there are no 'shoulds'...

However, please "feel positively free" to do so if you're genuinely looking to open up in life, to be accepting of others, are willing to receive affection, and to be more than just a friend at some point.

I think it's generally a good idea to ask a question, otherwise, how will I know if you're interested?

Otherwise I don't think it's my place to tell you what to do - do what your heart desires and be ready to accept what happens next. I think of E-mailing each other on here as playing tennis. Let's shoot the ball back and forth and see what happens.
