I'm a pretty laid back person and it takes a lot to rile me. That's not to say that I can't be passionate about the things I care about. I've been known to go on for quite a while about French New Wave Cinema, it's importance on 70's American film and it's ramifications on 90's Indie film.
A good friend described me as an Optimistic Cynic. I mostly agree with that assessment except I would actually reverse it and say I'm more of a Cynical Optimist. Meaning that I'm usually a fairly upbeat and hopeful person but also realistic, to put it nicely, in my expectations. Does that make a lick of sense?
Finally, and most importantly, I have two teenage kids who live with me part time and are the biggest part of who I am as a person. Being their dad, and being a fantastic dad, is huge part of life and makes me who I am.
So yeah, that's my spiel.
