My self-summary
If I was an author, I would write serious, deep books with titles like: 101 Ways to Annoy Your Golden Retriever; The Complete Guide to Presumptuousness; Sleeping Without You, Vols. 1-8 (a biography); and 48 Minutes in the Life of a Cupcake. Mercifully for the reading world, I am not.

If I was a composer of music, I would compose love songs with titles like: It's Another Friday Night and; and I Left My Heart on Craigslist. Fortunately, I am not a composer.

If I was a famous Hollywood movie producer, I would make thrillers with titles like: OK Cupid; Match, and Harmony. Same plots, different characters.

I was a seeker of spiritual knowledge, I would look look in every relationship, and every encounter and every moment to find compassion and love and humor and gratitude.
What I’m doing with my life
I am doing now with my life what I have been doing with my life as long as I can remember: trying to be as productive as I can while at the same time enjoying myself, learning new things, and meeting new people. The core value is to stay both interested and interesting. Besides that, working in a slow economy in my business, trying to work my stand up routine, going to and practicing at open mike nights, a lot of time at the gym, staying fit, trim and active, yoga, lifting, swimming, biking, and racqetball. Every day seems some combination of those sports. So...busy and happy.
I’m really good at
Exploration. Listening. Taking risk. I am very good at my work. I am very good at being a good, loyal and trusted friend.

I'm really good to my dog...or pretend to be. He pretends to be my loyal companion so its an even trade. Little fucker.

I'm very good at eating dessert and making reservations. I am very good at making dark cherry smoothies with soy milk and organic yogurt.

I'm very very good at making buttermilk pancakes with semi sweet chocolate chips. I'm even better at making buttermilk pancakes with milk chocolate chips. I'm also really good at making Belgium Waffles, and especially so for a guy from Van Nuys.

I'm really good at therapy. I can talk for hours about myself.

I'm really good at humility. I can listen to you talk about me for hours.

I'm really good at false modesty....maybe I'm not so good at that.

I'm really good at dressing like a guy- I mean like jeans and a t-shirt.

I'm really good at keeping my house clean...for a guy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I do appear as aloof, cold, serious, and perhaps even arrogant...
and those things are mostly true. I am not arrogant. It takes me a bit to work up to charm. On closer inspection, I am warm and caring. It just takes some time to see...perhaps years.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Firstly, I firmly believe that life is to short to read shit.

At present, I am on a spiritual books quest. I realized that my formal education was deficient in omitting the great western spiritual texts. I am about half way through the Koran and will start to work through the other writings of the western religions.

I recently finished Stendehall's The Red and The Black. Just before that I re-read and re- loved Moby Dick.

Last year, I finished reading Annuals of Former World, a history of geology. It was unbelivably fascinating. I am working my way now through Black Swan...I don't think that will be a favorite. The book on the bell curve, not the recent popular movie. I recently finished, and I think it will be a favorite, The Power of Now, although it was a "spirtual text". I I also recently finished biographies of Miamonidies and Dean Acheson.

For fun, and since I am originally from Los Angeles, I read Michael McConnelly crime thrillers.

My 3 favorite movies: Charlie Chaplin's City Lights. Woody Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors, and John Hughe's Ferris Beuhler's Day Off.

Other favorite movies would be Annie Hall, Manhattan, Apocolypse Now, The Band's Visit, The Secretary, Two Guys and a Girl.

For music, anything by Miles Davis, Johnny Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Rhett Garland, or Ray Bryant. The Beattles, of course. The Man in Black, The Goldberg Variations as played by Glenn Gould. I'm not really a classical music fan. I think there is a lot of garbage that passes itsself off as "classical" when it is really trash.
The six things I could never do without
1) A cheeseburger on The Deck or at Island Cafe over a beer on a summer day or at In and Out (even if it means travelling);
2) Ben and Jerry's Mission to Marzipan (when its available);
3) Dinner at Mortons;
4) Lipitor
5) listening to Jazz at either the Heathman or Rays late at night.
6) but most of all, the love of my family and friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm embarrassed to say, but I do spend a lot of time thinking about me and wondering about the limits of self knowledge. I find my self endlessly fascinating. I'm not obsessed with me, and I'm certainly not selfish, I just wonder how I got here...to this particularly place as this particular person. I wonder how common that is?
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night, I'm out with my friends at dinner and either shooting pool or listening to jazz around town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Robin Williams, the famous comdian, channels me and does not pay royalties...the bastard.
