From the Chicago suburbs originally; moved to LA after undergrad. I
worked just about every shitty job in LA for a while there. Went to
grad school for screenwriting out here, and have been working
What I’m doing with my life
I write and script coordinate TV. Spend the rest of the time
working on my own stuff, while trying to enjoy my life and be
present for the awesome people in my life.
I’m really good at
Seeing the best in people, writing prodigious Post-Its, deftly
catching objects that fall off of tables, accumulating unusual
Japanese candy, and roasting Brussels Sprouts.
The first things people usually notice about me
Clefty McClefterson. You can actually feel the dent in the bone.
It's a bit weird, but I'm not complaining.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just deep-sixed my previous answer to this because it was 80% of my
whole profile. This is not an easy one for people with expansive
When it comes to movies, shows, music, books, etc, I basically try
to watch and listen to everything I can, which has kept my taste

definitely taught me that I love foods I had no idea even existed
when I was a kid. I can't believe I only ate Chef Boyardee back
then. My grandma was inconsolable about that, and she was right!
The six things I could never do without
My kid brother, Final Draft (though I have mixed feelings there,
believe me), ramen, lazy days, my dad's watch, and optimism.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
At least right now, my pilot. My pilot my pilot my pilot --
On a typical Friday night I am
Out or working or sitting in my place watching a film or TV show.
Hopefully that narrows it down.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm considering taking up golf. Look, my whole family is into it,
so I'm being pressured to join in. They keep making me go to the
driving range and apparently I have a natural swing (NO smoke being
blown there, obviously). I'm not going to get the hat and the
short-pants, all right, I'm just... investigating it.
You should message me if
You think I am an attractive male with prospects. Or if you just
want to hang for a drink. Or anywhere in between. Hopefully that
narrows it down.
