I would consider myself an affable guy with a strong ambition to lead a fulfilling life. My modus operandi echoes the Ogden Nash quote "Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling."
I guess I identify with many characteristics of being a Libra, not that I'm much of an astrology buff. Making others laugh is a favorite pastime in addition to sports, music, film, cooking, and travel. In fact, those would be the main sections if I were to start a publication about myself. I'm not narcissistic enough to do that, so I'll just take you on a date to learn more about me instead.
What I’m doing with my life
After working as a trader for more than a decade, my creative side led a coup and eventually dropped me in the world of freelance commercial and film production.
I also produce, act, direct, write, act, and strum my guitar in various theatre/film/music projects with like-minded collaborators when I have the time.
I’m really good at
This is starting to get redundant. I mentioned the guitar, acting,
etc. In addition, I can cook a damn good meal. I'm really good at
backgammon (does that even matter?).
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile or my freakishly large biceps/triceps.

The six things I could never do without
...if I wanted to make a smoothie:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I divide most of my pensive thought among a diverse group of topics
to avoid rumination.
On a typical Friday night I am
Solving mysteries with my team of paranormal investigators.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love food!
You should message me if
You don't have a shirtless profile picture taken in front of a
mirror. No wait, that's your prerequisite, right?
