My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not much for having my picture taken, but that's because I don't really like being the center of attention. I'm usually the one taking the picture (that sounds creepier than it should).

I work as a director (see? not so creepy, but potentially slimy) and I shoot fine art photography (ew! is that code for gratuitous naked people?) that isn't gratuitous naked people, but actually pretty evocative landscape stuff (whew!).

Besides, I have two kids and they're so friggin photogenic that when I do take pictures of people I'd rather take pictures of them (way less creepy).

My mom says my little boy looks just like I did when I was three, if that helps.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I started a company that's either going to revolutionize an entire industry or flame out, taking my life's savings with it. So most of my waking hours are spent trying to make sure it's the former.

And most of my sleeping hours are spent awake.

Do I sound stressed? I'm not really stressed. I'm having a blast. It's just that there are always a million things to do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring out how things are going to turn out, but for the completely wrong reasons (this has been insanely valuable when it comes to the stock market).

Making bizarre connections.

Coming up with theories. (I know, for example, which came first, the chicken or the egg.)

Finding the funny in even the most horrific situation.

Picking myself up and starting over (lots of practice with that one).

Spilling on my new shirt.

Making lists and then losing them.

Writing complaint letters.

is my decisiveness. No, wait, it's something else.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read mostly non-fiction. Food porn. You know, books about the
history of a certain spice or what happens to the proteins in meat
at 130 degrees. I like fiction as well, but I have a pretty high
bar for writing and there isn't a lot out there that gets me
interested. Lately, it's Michael Chabon for his incredible
imagery.

In movies, I go for great writing, too. 'The Princess Bride',
'Diva', 'Shanghai Noon'... lots of comedies. But then there's
'Trois Couleurs' (a masterpiece), 'Slumdog Millionaire', 'Let the
Right One In', 'Children of God'... I used to watch a lot of
foreign films, but with a four- and a five-year-old, the closest I come anymore is 'Dora the Explorer', which by the way I have a huge problem with. She's what? Six? And she's off traipsing around the jungle, by herself, yelling at you to help her get out of every mess she gets into. Where are her parents?

Sorry. Where was I?

My musical tastes are bizarre. Most of what I listen to is North
African Rai or Eastern European gypsy music or some other obscure
stuff where you have no idea what the lyrics say. (I know, weird.
Not about the writing.) Lately, I've got Pandora tuned to Antonio Carlos Jobim. I also like Maná, Led Zepplin, Chopin, and Pink
Martini. Please don't make me listen to Brittney Spears, Cher,
Abba, or anything rap or hip hop.

Every once in a while I'll go on a musical quest. For a while, I
was trying to find the sound of a smoky Paris nightclub at 2:00 in
the morning –– a sultry singer, stand-up bass, drum set, maybe a
piano. I stumbled onto Diana Krall, Madeline Peyroux, Melody
Gardot, Norah Jones, and Kat Edmonson. (Digression: If you don't absolutely, completely love Kat Edmonson's version of 'Summeritme', we are simply not going to get along. I play it at least once every other day and it never fails to give me goose bumps. Seriously.)

Where was I? Oh yeah. I recently got a new car, so now I'm looking for late-night driving music. So far I've got Massive Attack, Gotan
Project, Mercan Dede, Parov Stellar. Got any suggestions?

Food? I love red food. Anything red: Gazpacho, red meat,
bouillabaisse, salmon, cherries, red peppers, a nice rioja,
nectarines, seared ahi, romesco... Two important qualifications, by the way: 1) Coloring something red doesn't make it taste better. (I'm probably addicted to lycopene and anthocyanins.) 2) This only seems to hold for actual food. Red licorice? Doesn't do it for me.

Yeah, it must be the lycopene and anthocyanins.

And bread. I mean, I really love bread. Those crusty Italian loaves
with the chewy, tangy interior.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Preparing a spectacular feast for my kids. Sometimes they mow it all down and I feel like the greatest chef in the world. Other times they turn up their noses and say hurtful things like "A little light on the saffron in the bouillabaisse, huh, Daddy?" and "Tarte tatin again? I want a popsicle"

Precocious little critics.
