My self-summary
I guess you need to be a unicorn that farts rainbows to garner any interest here? I write..no one answers. So I mainly check this site out of boredom these days. That being said, if anyone bothers to read this, I'm filthy rich, generous to a fault, gullible and well-hung.
What I’m doing with my life
Not posting enough pics of myself skiing down a mountain or doing a yoga pose at a palm springs resort hotel. I work in the film industry so of course i'm an emotional wreck and suspicious of people's motives :) . Sorry my photo album isn't more okc friendly like this one:

Lately it's been a lot of work with California staycation roadtrips in-between.

I'm not going to post photos of myself grimacing my way through a deadlift or squat but yeah I workout like most of you here. I don't hike much ...I lift (and sometimes run)..
I’m really good at
i'm loyal & dependable. i'm always ready to pitch in and help a friend. If i ever stay overnight you'll likely find me sweeping up your yard or washing your dishes the morning after. Or if you just want me to leave I can do that too. I'm a hard, diligent worker even when the job at hand sucks A. i'm resourceful & curious. I have a new-found knack for unclogging stuck drains. I can deftly turn an old receipt into a napkin at a moment's notice. I take pictures...self-published a photography book and looking to do another. does that qualify me as an 'aspiring artist'? Broken bmw hood latch? I'm your man..
The first things people usually notice about me
Sometimes I'm told "you've got a deep voice.."

Don't judge me by my cover...former teenage punk rock dude here. I have a lot in common with some of you gals who don't look at anyone without a beard and/or tattoos..you know..the "silverlake mountain man" or "williamsburg lumberjack"..(looking at you eastside stylist girls with your etsy stores).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As a former English Lit major, I always feel i should be reading more. A couple months ago I finished the last of 3 straight edith wharton novels and humblebragged about it for weeks. Currently trying some John Updike. I love T. Rex & lots of other artists most people have barely heard of.
The six things I could never do without
oh jeez..unlike 99% of okc users i can do without my iphone. gone without things before and it didn't kill me..but these things float my boat

feminine affection..the arts-photography/painting/music/architecture/etc...pineapple...decent reading material..comedy...cruising around with a close friend..physical activity of some kind (i love my workouts..they keep me reasonably sane)...gluten
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Do people ever check their quotes before posting them on social media? Somewhat certain Oscar Wilde never said "be yourself. everyone else is taken" (a popular one on dating sites). This sentiment sounds way more 21st century america than victorian england. on the other hand i'm pretty sure Bernard Shaw said "gas, grass or ass. no one rides for free"..
On a typical Friday night I am
gettin' turnt up

lately watching bill maher after getting home from a long work day, not so much for maher himself but for his guests..i tend to leave the weekend nights for the 9 to 5ers but i'll go out if the going is good..i tend to like the spontaneous over pre-planned activities.

if i'm lucky i'm outside my motel room in some tiny southwestern town looking up & crushing on the stars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
1. i never write "LOL", "SMH" etc
2. not a fan of "woo-woo" or "woo science." meaning i'm not so much into heavy LA new-agey burning man spiritualist types...in my experience w/people like this it often seems to be a cover for narcissism and insane self-regard bordering on arrogance...(i'm describing a particular type...not all people who are spiritually inclined..i totally respect true spiritual practice)..
You should message me if
I don't have some kind of list but I'd like to find someone with smarts and style who has more interests than just yoga and the beach. Also, I'm tall and slim so that tends to be my jam but it's not an absolute requirement..
