My self-summary
Super-successful movie star playboy with a villa on Lake Como. Wait, that's George Clooney. I confuse myself with him sometimes. Okay, me: I'm a successful TV writer with most of my hair and all of my sense of humor. Like George, I truly like and respect women because, at least in part, i was raised by them. Unlike George, I'm looking for a relationship that lasts more than two years. Preferably with someone who already has her own life and career together and is as passionate about her work and interests as I am about mine. And who has seen "The Wild Bunch." And liked it. Okay, that part's negotiable. A girl recently called me a "sweet guy," and I am. But I definitely ain't nice-guy boring. I'm good at having a good time, and people tend to have a good time with me.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been working as a writer in TV and film for a bunch of years, enjoying the hell out of it (or at least most of the time), and now I'm also trying to do a bit more music on the side. Had a band back when I was in New York, and I'm now playing in a new one out here. I had forgotten how much I missed strapping on a guitar and playing in front of folks. Unlike a TV show, it doesn't take the resources of a corporation to make a song; you can do it all on your own, or with your friends.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh and occasionally making an ass out of myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes, sense of humor, full-body tattoo (no, just kidding).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to count or even remember, so I'll mention a few recent favorites from recent months, or years:
Books: Keith Richards' "A Life." Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs. Patti Smith's memoir, "Just Kids," about coming of age as artist and her friendship with Robert Mapplethorpe. I'm not usually a big nonfiction guy, but these books, all about artists (and yes, I'd include Steve Jobs in that category) who followed their hearts and obsessions, were powerful for me. I'm always reading new books -- or, more accurately, listening to them on my iPhone as I drive or work out. There's something great about being read to that takes me back to being a kid... or even further, to the way stories were probably told around campfires.

Movies: One of the perks of being in this business is getting a bunch of screeners during award season. But this year's crop included several I didn't want to see on my TV. So I went to the theater to see them properly. A couple of standouts: Lone Survivor and, my favorite so far this year: Spike Jonz's "Her." A genuine love story about a guy and his software-based girlfriend.

Music: When I'm not listening to books, my iPhone is on permanent shuffle. The usual suspects who keep showing up lately: Lucinda Williams, John Hiatt, The Avett Brothers, Trouble Dolls, Trainwreck (OK, the last two are my bands but I LIKE them), Springsteen, Ramones, Cheap Trick, New Pornographers, Edith Frost, Arcade Fire, Aimee Mann, T-Model Ford, Johnny Cash, The Weakerthans, David Byrne, Ennio Morricone.

Food: You name it, I like it. Mostly I like going out to dinner with someone special and asking the waiter to help us narrow down the choices. Love eating, hate menus. Some of my favorite restaurants are the ones where the entire menu fits on a blackboard on the wall. Regarding which, Hollywood carnivores should check out "Salt's Cure," a little place on Santa Monica Blvd. See? You get restaurant tips with my profile!
The six things I could never do without
Damn, let's see... laptop, surfboard, guitar... and I'm already running out of "things" I couldn't do without. So maybe I'll add three more things that aren't really things but are probably more essential: good friends, some creative labor of love, and, yeah, some time to exhale.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work, and women. Sometimes in that order, but much more often these days in the opposite order. I've always been ambitious and have had my share of success in my chosen field, but what that's brought home to me lately is that work, a career, etc., can never be more than half the story, and sometimes less. I've been working at bringing my life into balance, and that means finding the right person to share it with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Twisting my own arm to make sure I get out and do something fun or interesting or both. The end of a long work-week can make you want to veg in front of the TV, but if you do it feels like you've already blown off half your weekend. So, dinner with a friend or friends, a movie, play, concert or a party. Or just something I haven't done before. Last week I dragged a friend to country music bar I heard of in Burbank. Turned out to be a low-key joint. Just us, a band, and a handful of rockabilly types who all knew each other and made for a friendly scene. A couple of Johnny Cash covers, a Corona or two and I was just fine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, I won't admit it here, but I'm not particularly shy so just ask me in person and I'll come up with something.
