My self-summary
Christ, I hate doing these. (deep breath) Okay, here goes: I'm a hopeless romantic, a perfect gentleman with a touch of the devil in him, an eccentric intellectual who's learning to live outside his own head, a sympathetic ear, a quick wit with a dry sense of humor, and a potential social butterfly if I can ever break out of this geek cocoon. If you've read this far, congratulations - I haven't scared you away. Your move! :)
What I’m doing with my life
I design (and narrate) online training courses for a major pharmaceutical company.
I’m really good at
Photography (fashion/glamor/old-school pinup/cheesecake, but also event and sports/action stuff). Videography, both shooting and editing. I'm a competent cook, an okay bass player, a lifelong writer, and can rock the karaoke with the right song.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, it seems. Yeah, they're really that blue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
SERIOUS, serious movie buff: art films and/or subtitles don't scare me. Enjoy horror, sci-fi, drive-in trash too. Basically, if the director's last name is Romero, Cronenberg, Lynch, Tarantino, Nolan, Godard, or Renoir, I've already bought my ticket.

Enjoy an absurdly wide range of music: British Invasion. (Non-hair) metal. CBGB-era punk rock. Alt/grunge. Ambient. Classical. Jazz. Stuff that falls into the "experimental" and/or "weirder than shit" category. Not wild about country, disco, or opera, but that's about it.

TV habits tend towards edgy action/adventure and dry British/indie comedy. Currently enjoying ORPHAN BLACK, PENNY DREADFUL, LOST GIRL, DAREDEVIL, GOTHAM, SUITS, DOCTOR WHO. Will always make time for anything involving Monty Python, Simon Pegg, or Stephen Fry. Old enough to remember Supermarionation shows like FIREBALL XL5 and CAPTAIN SCARLET; young at heart enough to still enjoy their high-tech cheesiness. Dislike most reality TV that involves people fighting with each other or just behaving like morons. On the other hand, JACKASS still makes me laugh my ass off. I am nothing if not contradictory.

Open to trying a variety of cuisines, but can't go wrong with Italian, Mexican, Oriental, a nice assortment of sushi, or just a good hunk o' steak. Oh, and I don't eat salad. Nuh-uh. Never liked it, never will.
The six things I could never do without
A friendly, nearby cat. I don't have to own one, I just have to be able to pet one.
High-speed Internet.
The inspiration of creative people.
My smartphone.
Artistic freedom.
Coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The widening gap between political, religious, and social extremes.

The disappearance of common sense, simple decency, chivalry, and good manners.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making someone look their best in my camera's viewfinder, checking out new movies on the big screen, or in the kitchen trying out a new recipe.
You should message me if
you want doors held open for you, my undivided attention, a genuine interest in what you say and do...and lots and lots of good laughs.
