My self-summary
I'm a born and raised Oregonian, but I've moved back and forth betwixt here and Los Angeles numerous times. Went to film school down there and spent the better part of the last fifteen or so years doing varied entertainment industry work.

I'm a pretty laid-back guy, but I love a good debate. I have a dry sense of humour, but I'm not a bitter person. I don't much care about name brands or style trends, I'll decide for myself what I like.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in the local entertainment biz, getting back into the habit of writing, and trying to make Portland a permanent home.
I’m really good at
Dancing. Sleeping. Being underwater. Making a margarita. Communing with animals. Meticulous weed-pulling. Back-rubs. Finding beauty and glory in strange and small places.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Lord of The Rings. Viriconium. Shogun. Blood Meridian. Undaunted Courage. Stranger in a Strange Land. East of Eden. The Fabric of The Cosmos. Wind-up Bird Chronicle. M. John Harrison. H.P. Lovecraft. Ernest Hemingway, Cormac McCarthy.

Movies: 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Thin Red Line. Unbreakable. Baraka. There Will Be Blood. Miller's Crossing. The Wild Bunch. Seven Samurai. Let The Right One In. Only God Forgives. Upstream Color. Stanley Kubrick. David Lynch. Wes Anderson. Nicholas Winding Refn.

Shows: The Wire. Arrested Development. Twin Peaks. Battlestar Galactica. Game of Thrones. Deadwood. True Detective. Parks and Rec. Tim and Eric's Awesome Show: Great Job!

Music: Daft Punk. Air. Kris Kristofferson. Tom Waits. Bjork. Pink Floyd. Philip Glass. Public Enemy. Sigur Ros. Old school funk. Ambient/Minimalist. Dance music.

Food: Mexican. Indian. Food Truck Fusion. Thai. Soul food. Pizza. Vegetarian. I like food. Fooooooood. Sour red Flemish ale.
The six things I could never do without
Friends. Family. Wilderness. Water. Quiet. Sunlight.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love. Story structure. Space. The ineffable nature of reality. Making out.

There's probably a correlation there.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going dancing or Netflixing or playing board games with friends. Quite possibly drinking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't try to oversell myself by putting up the best pictures I can find. I aim for a melange of this-is-what-you-can-actually-expect. I'm a touch over 6', about 170 lbs. Not ripped and muscular, I don't exercise regularly at the moment, I'm on the thin side of average.

On that note, why do so many people post pictures that are obfuscating or misrepresenting their appearance? Does tricking someone into a situation where they are going to be surprised by the reality seem like a good dating strategy?

I'd make my profile more irreverent, dry-humoured, and irascible, but that doesn't seem to play well over the internet. Maybe I shouldn't let that deter me though...
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–44
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You like dancing, swimming, and Disneyland, or at least two for three of those.

You are an intellectual, or a creative type, or thoughtful, or empathic, or highly logical.

You do not have any chemical addictions, although I could forgive Stumptown coffee.

You don't take yourself too seriously.

My Mari Lwyd doesn't freak you out. I didn't make it for a project, I just thought it was an intriguing, frightening, and beautiful thing, and I wanted to make one, so I did.

You are compelled to do so.

None of the afore-mentioned suggestions are really that important, meth/heroin addiction notwithstanding.

Real Talk: It's summer, I just got a Prius, I'm not broke like last summer, and I'm rarin' to do some road-tripping/camping/exploring/magic-feeling. Let's do it.

Further Real Talk: When I'm working full-time, it can be over 70 hours a week. That doesn't leave me with a lot of precious free time. Some people need more than that.
