My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up just outside of New Orleans and have lived in NYC for fifteen years.

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 (15&13) 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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Running on a tuff gnarl.

Trying to figure out how to squeeze 36 hours into a day.

I work as a freelance editor cutting mainly commercials and music videos. I also have my own production company and I'm constantly working on at least one or two side projects.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
knowing a lot of useless knowledge about a lot of things. Making people laugh. Fixing a damn good cup of coffee. Using either old fashioned phrases or good ole southernisms in typical conversations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I had to guess, it's that I look younger than I am. I always say my age doesn't fit me. I look 5 years younger on the outside but feel 5 years older on the inside.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: Sonic Youth, Pixies, Mogwai, Kurt Vile, Primal Scream, Explosions in the Sky, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Oneida, The Rolling Stones, Mike Watt, Radiohead, Stereolab, The Flaming Lips, Archers of Loaf, Yo La Tengo, Spiritualized, Broken Social Scene, Jesus & Mary Chain, Public Enemy, Pavement, Earlimart, film soundtracks, My Bloody Valentine, Weekend, The Melvins, Daft Punk, Sleep, STRFKR, The Velvet Underground, etc....
I recently got a pristine first pressing of the Rolling Stone's Beggars Banquet for $25 that's my new "most prized possession."
I go see as many live shows as I can, usually a few a month.

Films: Kubrick, Truffaut, Malick, Aronofsky, Godard, Paul Thomas Anderson, Hitchcock, Tarantino, Coen Brothers, Sidney Lumet, David Fincher, Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, Stan Brakhage, Edgar Wright, tons more and the movie Oscar with Sylvester Stallone. Seriously that movie cracks me up.

TV: Community, Spaced, Simpsons, True Detective, Archer, South Park, Mad Men, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Veep, Man Seeking Woman, The Daily Show - if I don't watch it the day it airs I won't watch it. I'm weird like that.

Books: Film Books, Don DeLillo, Michael Chabon, Kafka, Phillip K. Dick, Jim Thompson, Borges. A Visit from the Goon Squad & Super Sad True Love Story have been two of my more recent favorites.

Food: Just coming off a year long vegetarian diet that I did in solidarity with my daughter. Gotta say, I really missed fried chicken. A lot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
movies, coffee, nice weather, big old cities, music, and of course my kiddos.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why are there so few pictures of me? Somebody else can take the pictures sometime.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
depends on the Friday night. Some nights I may be at a small, comfortable bar having a few beers with friends and telling stories. Another Friday I may be stuck at work trying to meet a nearly impossible deadline or at home writing away. I might have a few friends over to hang out. Or simply sitting on the couch watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
you mean other than having an appreciation for a Sylvester Stallone comedy?

Chances are if I look at somebody's profile the first thing I read is the movies/music/books section. I think you can tell a lot about person by their taste, not good or bad but compatibility.
