Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, my name's David. I'm originally from Napa, went to UC Santa
Barbara where I got my degree in directing. After graduating I
ended up traveling around the country a lot for work (lived in 10
different cities since 2011) but now that that's over and I'm free
to set down some roots, I'm moving back to LA.
I started working in the entertainment industry in high school and
through college as an electrician and lighting designer for
theaters. I was originally studying Marine Biology but through work
discovered my passion for "the business." I've been diving since I
was 6, and got certified as soon as it was legal. I'm still an avid
lover of the ocean and if I can, would love to combine diving and
I love adventure, being a bit of an adrenaline junky. I've sky
dived several times and plan to get certified, love white water
rafting, rock climbing, paintball, skiing, snowboarding, and
traveling. Even do the occasional shark dive.
Most of my friends would describe me as "That tall, blonde, goofy
dude." And my personality is ENFJ and I'm kind of an old soul, but
the silliest, most energetic guy you will ever meet. So hopefully
you can keep up :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After school I ended up working in politics, mainly campaign
directing or running petition drives and voter registration
projects in the midwest. And while not something I'd wanted to do
for the rest of my life, it was a really interesting experience.
And it did feel good to contribute to fixing some of the country's
problems, though I don't miss the 100+ hour work weeks, that would
go 7 days a week for months at a time.
Since coming back in California I've gotten back into entertainment
tech working at theaters or events, and also with a couple of film
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at making people laugh. I've got a great sense of
humor as I was raised on Mel Brooks and Monty Python.
Also, probably be pretty good at surviving the zombie apocalypse.
Have a lot of survival training and I've worked out quite a few
strategies for outlasting the infected :)
And Cranium... I rock at cranium.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably either my height or my hair. I dunno, I'll let you be the
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like a lot of everything. Big fan of the James Bond series and
any Mel Brooks Film. I love to geek out and have a Star Wars
marathon (originals) once a year or so. Love Firefly, Jaws, and
Indiana Jones as well. And one must not forget Dr. Who,
Supernatural, or Sherlock. Newest favorite movie has got to be
Tangled, it is so freakin' adorable.
As far as books, my favorite has to be the Harry Potter series as I
grew up on it. Also enjoy the Lord of the Rings trilogy and
National Geographic is always worth a read. Plus anything by
Shakespeare or Steinbeck (Of Mice of Men is still one of my
I like a lot of music, and having worked as an electrician for a
lot of concerts I've had the opportunity to listen to most styles.
Have to say my favorite band is Muse though. Enjoy a little jazz by
Spencer Day when I want to relax. And I love Philip Glass and John
Williams. I've picked up playing the piano again and I really miss
playing my trumpet. Once I have time I want to start playing that
Food... I don't discriminate when it comes to food. I love to eat
and try new things, however I eat as healthy as I can. Big fan of
the greens. But I could probably eat Indian food everyday for the
rest of my life.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I have always been very goal driven, and I find that when I'm not
working towards anything I'm not very content. So I always need a
I couldn't go without pen/paper or a laptop, because I'm always
I hate sleeping without more pillows than I need.
My favorite mug and water filter/pitcher because I drink about a
gallon of water a day.
My space. I'm very independent, and I definitely need a little "me"
time once in a while.
Contact Lenses. Although they are the devil, I hate wearing
glasses, especially when I'm playing a sport. (Hopefully getting
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I write a lot, mainly for film and theater, so a fair amount of
time is spent dwelling on that.
As for day dreams, I also have a major hero complex, so most of
them are epic adventures on the high seas, or fighting Nazi's
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Fridays I'm usually hanging with my best friends, doing anything
from going to the movies or playing epic games of Cranium or Apple
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ooohhh, um... I've definitely got some stories, (and I'm an open
book to people I know and like) but something I'd be willing to
share here is that when I grew up my step mother was British, and
when I have a bit too much to drink my accent comes out. Long
Islands are notorious for doing this :)
Oh, and I've watched Tangled many more times than I'm willing to
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to go to Disneyland or you think adventures are the best
first dates. A couple of rules though:
I'm interested in a relationship, and I don't put up with cheating
in the slightest. I've been taken advantage of in the past so I
have a no tolerance policy now. Shiny?
Also, I won't tolerate any prejudices, whether its towards race,
gender, or sexual orientation.
Otherwise feel free to message me if you're interested. Hope to
hear from you :)
