"Friends are like television. Some are like PBS and always asking
for money. Others are like the news, with sad tales to tell
everyday, some are like that one station with the foreign language;
you don't understand a word of it but you listen and watch anyway.
And then there are the ones like the commercials, always changing,
ever-so-annoying and only seem to be there when you are bored. But
every once and a while you meet someone who's like a really good
movie of the week or that one tv show you hardly ever get to see
anymore because you're so busy. My point is hold on to the friends
you care about and since we don't have a remote control to mute
someone or just change the channel, pick your friends carefully." ~
...I'm searching for a friend...with potential...
...a companion for life's adventure...
...come...explore with me.
I am imaginative, spirited, and spontaneous
What I’m doing with my life
...perhaps it would be appropriate were I to shed additional light
upon my shadow'd mystery. I'm a single, gentleman rogue with a
romantic soul and adventurous spirit...a humble soul - 5'7", a
modest 165lbs., with a ruggedly-handsome demeanor, and deeply
expressive, haunting hazel eyes (as my initial picture would attest
to). I'm an artisan by trade; a freelance illustrator, writer, and
graphic designer who haunts the Lancaster/York county region of
south-central Pennsylvania, though my current career venture as
writer and graphic designer is located in Baltimore. My interests
run from the extraordinairy to the mundane, depending on one's
perspective. Besides my endearing appreciation for all things laced
in fantasy, horror, and science fiction, I am truly fascinated by
nature's awe and splendor, and am often found hiking, climbing,
spelunking, bicycling, and exploring every facet of this vast
planet, unearthing all the mysteries that abound.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
*My #1 favorite movie is...Jurassic Park! It touched on so many
aspects of my childhood fantasies of the Prehistoric beasts. (at
the moment, the "Lord of the Rings" Trilogy, "Gladiator",
"Hellboy", "Kill Bill V1", and Mel Gibson's "Signs" are at the top
of the pack) I'm an avid movie fan, and though it's blatantly
obvious my preferences lean towards realms of the fantastic or
horrific, I appreciate all genres. Here is a selection of
additional favorites...Daredevil, Minority Report, Reign of Fire,
The Core, Tomb Raider, Dances with Wolves, Batman, Alien, Aliens,
Bladerunner, The Matrix Trilogy, Indiana Jones, Jaws, Close
Encounters, Contact, Braveheart, A Few Good Men, A Civil Action,

gotta love a big ol' iguana trampling through the heart of NYC!!),
LA Confidential, Hunt For Red October, Crimson Tide, Blade,
"Braveheart", Untouchables, Unbreakable, Unforgiven, Quick &
The Dead, Interview With The Vampire, Dark City, Nightmare On Elm

Storm",and, of course, X-MEN, X2, and Spider-Man currently round
out the list, which could go on into infinitum!!! Most recently,
I�ve enjoyed immensely Batman Begins, Constantine, Kingdom of
Heaven, Fantastic Four, and Sin City.
