Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
By day I am a professionally attired, well-spoken, articulate
supervisor in an office setting. By night I am either the sarcastic
student pushing buttons during debate or the mommy playing
choo-choos, drawing bubble baths and reading bedtime stories. I'm
not classified as human until coffee is consumed and a shower has
been taken. I will watch the same movies/cartoons over and over
again with my boy just to hear him laugh because it's the sweetest
sound I've ever heard. I've been burned but still believe in love
and, strangely enough, believe that romance is alive and well if
you know where to look.
When I'm not in school or at work I'm with my boy; taking the dog
for long walks on the trail and stopping so he can throw stones
into the creek. He and I love to fish, camp, play trucks in the
mud, snuggle and eat popcorn, clean up the yard and fall asleep to
the sound of the rain.
I believe football is a form of religion. I put my faith in the
Force and the lessons I learned from Star Wars before I could read.
I believe in a real book, not an electronic one that I can put in
my pocket, and yes, the older and more unknown is generally where
you'll find the gems. I have a passion for Cary Grant movies and
vinyl records and am not afraid to dance to my own beat...no matter
how silly it may seem.
Some of my life goals include opening a gay bar and naming it "The
OutSkirts". Buying a piece of land near my rural hometown and
building a drive-in that shows old black & white films,
anything labeled as a cult classic, and movies that are a must see
on the big screen, such as the directors cut of The Abyss.
Traveling to Israel and praying at the Wailing Wall. Spending a day
at an open cafe in Prague enjoying some of the world's finest
coffee while people watching. Discovering the remote village in
India where my great-great Scottish grandfather met and married my
great-great Indian grandmother. Publishing a book of poetry.
Watching the sun rise over the Atlantic in South Carolina and
flying to San Diego to see the same sun set under the Pacific from
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My hobbies include camping, fishing, writing, reading, research on
anything that strikes my fancy, building bonfires, discovering new
book shops and record stores, drinking lots of coffee and spending
every moment I can with my son.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing Choo-Choos with my boy
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a skeptic when a compliment is paid to me but I've been told
I've got good hair and nice eyes; both of which I am happy to say
are all natural on every level :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I believe Bob Dylan is perhaps one of the greatest
singer/songwriters of all time. He may not sound like much but
that's what makes him amazing, he doesn't care that he can't sing!
I love classic country, classic rock, classical music and any score
done by John Williams. I love to dance to whatever is popular at
the club, slow dance to Dean Martin, sing at the top of my lungs
with the 80s hair bands and pretty much anything else in between.
Music is one of my few passions.
I love to read almost anything I can get my hands on. Song of
Solomon, The Well of Loneliness, any Star Wars fiction series, the
Portable Dorothy Parker, histories, mythologies and the complete
interview series of Bob Dylan are just a few things that clutter my
library. I love poetry in all it's forms and can appreciate the
time, energy and personal sacrifice it takes to create a piece of
art, no matter if I can't understand what it means :)
China Beach, Queer As Folk, The L Word, The X-Files, Rizzoli &
Isles, The Closer, Designing Women, The Golden Girls, The Facts of
Life, Gilligan's Island...the list is endless.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
If I can only choose six they would have to be in this order:
1. my son
2. chicory coffee
3. hot showers
4. comfortable underwear, like really comfortable
6. my grandmother's stories - without them I wouldn't be who I am
and who I continue to become
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to do with my boy once the work day/week is done.
When our next fishing trip will come.
Sex / Love / Relationships and all the forms they take.
My own writing.
The next good book I will discover.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Being the working parent of a co-parent situation means I don't
take a lot of time for myself; every spare minute I get I want to
be with my boy because he changes with every passing day. But if I
could choose what to do with a free night it would include an easy
dinner, a Bloody Mary and a lot of close dancing. Of course, I
would be just as happy sitting about a bonfire until the stars fade
into dawn. I'm pretty easy going and am up for almost anything.
