My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*UPDATE* So I'm not exactly swamped with deadlines anymore which is nice, but I did recently join a startup--which makes the times I'm free a bit more of a scarce commodity. So if you don't mind waiting a bit for an opportunity to meet up in person (something I prefer greatly over endless back-and-forth emails), I'd love to hear from you!

I like pretending that everyone's screen names on here are actually paint colors from Home Depot. You can just imagine all of them being on those color sample cards. Go ahead, try it.

Soooooo let's see ... I am a Bushwick-based musician/producer with the lovely and talented Michelle Hotaling. Our latest (a Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks cover project) is available for FREE (yes FREE) at In case you were wondering.

I'm an eternal optimist despite having had my share of hard knocks -- I'm 14-years divorced and a 7-years+ testicular cancer survivor which, yeah, I'll say it -- makes me kind of kick-ass. Not to mention the fact that this might be the only profile on here that includes the word "testicular." So there.* My experiences make me who I am and if you must know, who I am is pretty effing awesome.

I am goofy, redundant, and redundant.

* I have since been informed there are about 175 profiles which mention the word "testicular." I find this either slightly amazing or disturbing. Probably both.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Duh, winning.

Oh, and training for the NYC Marathon! No, I'm not a runner. It's been an interesting summer/early fall.

*UPDATE* So, that whole "Marathon" thing didn't happen. Sigh. But I ended up taking place in a "Run Anyway" Marathon in Central Park on Sunday the 4th -- 26.2 miles without water stations and doing that damn Harlem Hill 4 times ... but I did it!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Filling out online profiles, apparently. And frisbee golf on the Wii, if you must know.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I look absolutely nothing like George Clooney.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Wow, all in one answer? OK, you asked for it ...

Just for fun, I'm going to put my iTunes on "Shuffle All" and write down the first 6 songs that come up. I have 24,000 songs; should be interesting:
1. "Afterglow" by Genesis (from "Wind & Wuthering")
2. "Guitar Flute & String" by Moby (from "Play")
3. "Symphony No. 12 in D minor, Op. 112 'The Year 1917': II. Razliv" by Dmitri Shostakovich
4. "Christmas Time Is Here (instrumental)" by Vince Guaraldi Trio (from "A Charlie Brown Christmas")
5. "Too Late" by Journey (From "Time³")
6. "Cough Syrup" by Young the Giant (from "Young the Giant")
Wow. That described me a LOT better than I thought it would.

Other music stuff:
Mirabelle / Michelle Hotaling / Marillion / The Beatles / Genesis (w/Peter Gabriel) / Radiohead / Muse / The Swell Season / Duncan Sheik / Green Day / Dido / Sheryl Crow / Neko Case / Antonín Dvořák / Gustav Mahler / Camille Saint-Saëns / Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart / John Adams / Igor Stravinsky / Arvo Pärt / Jean Sibelius / Ella Fitzgerald / Billie Holiday / Louis Armstrong ... and about 5 million others.

Good Omens (Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett) / Conversations With God (Neale Donald Walsch) / The Artist's Way (Julia Cameron) /
Dragonriders of Pern (Anne McCaffrey) / Also: Paulo Coelho / Eckhart Tolle / Wayne Dyer. Just finished "The Rest Is Noise" by Alex Ross and I was completely fascinated. (I'm a classical music geek.)

It's A Wonderful Life / 50/50 / Once / Before Sunrise / Before Sunset / Toy Story 3 / Lady & The Tramp / The Princess Bride / The Blues Brothers / The Hangover / Wall-E / Up / When Harry Met Sally / Lilo & Stitch / Young Frankenstein / The Muppet Movie / Strange Brew / Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind / Lost in Translation / Harry Potter (esp. movies 3 and 8)

Dessert -- just about anything. Yes please.
Tapas / Indian / French / Italian / Cajun & Creole / Mexican
Dessert (it bears repeating)

It's all about Cosmos.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Laughter, Friends & Family (one item), Music, Passion, Dessert, Anti-cynical childlike wonder. Love is pretty nice too. Yeah.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whoever it was that first decided that miniature golf and pirates were inexorably linked. Also, how hard it is to actually say the word "inexorably."

Oh, and I think a lot about getting completely "off the grid." All the while knowing I wouldn't last 3 minutes off of said grid. Sigh.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Saving the universe from the evil plots of a diabolical madman. Or possibly eating cupcakes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Umm, I believe I've already mentioned my testicle on a dating website.

My Meyers-Briggs is, um, ENF...4...PXL...Ok, actually, I have no clue what my Meyers-Briggs is. I'm pretty sure I'm not interested in knowing. I'm me.

Oh, and I can't seem to be in the Temple of Dendur room at the Met without saying "Waiter, there's too much pepper in my paprikash." I just can't.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can bring the funny. Or the goofy. Or both. Yeah. I don't think I'm too picky; let's start at "not bat-shit crazy" and work our way back from there, mmmkay?

Or: if you would walk around Disney World wearing mouse ears with me.
