Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*time for a rewrite*
I hope you are at least a little bit comfortably dorky, and bright,
and forgiving, and genuine.
The basics for now: my friends describe me as kind and interesting
(of course they do...as if your friends don't say the same of you).
I love to cook, but it's randomness. I can usually open the fridge
and make something decent...raised by parents that love to cook.
I'm putting ever increasing effort into taking care of my physical
and mental wellbeing, but don't subscribe to any particular genre
for either. More to come...
New edit: A close friend described me as sapiosexual: attracted to
intelligence. I think it's somewhat true, but not an absolute. I
like knowing how things work, but don't think I'm special in this
regard. I'm definitely not interested in being right all the time.
I hope I've outgrown this. I like working with other to figure out
what does work.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Traveling the country asking, "Can you hear me now?" Making photos
for both pleasure and hire when it comes into my life. Trying to be
more honest with myself so I can be more honest with you.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Love love making great food. Anywhere you apply commas may be true.
I hope you have a sense of humor about what I just wrote.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Impossible to answer, but I often get that I look 10 years younger
than I am...good genes I guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Constantly starting and not finishing books. I love the public
I use to work in the film biz and was way too seriously critical.
Now, I'm enjoying good films, still particular to a certain
Radiohead, Rolling Stones, Built to Spill, Caetano Veloso, Bebel
Gilberto, The Kinks, old Metallica, 1st wave, 2nd wave, Die
Antwoord, Spoon. I love the XMU station on Sirius. More from all
sources that brighten my mind.
Trying out a heavy veggie fruit thing to see how it goes. I gotta
leave room for fun.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Carl Sagan, Marc Maron, Louis CK, George
Carlin, Maria Bamford, The Moth, This American Life...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

water for both drinking and swimming in
I could easily live without iphones & clocks, but they come in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The immense amount of energy in the universe at any given point and
that we are actually made of stardust from exploding suns. I'm an
amateur science geek. Other little things in life. I was raised
catholic so I work a lot on being non-judge mental (always a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Right now, working. Sometimes relaxing, sometimes live music and
drinks, catching a movie at one of the great second-run theaters in
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm partially colorblind and I spent 10 years as a cinematographer
hiding it. Ask me about it if we hang out.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are open, kind, and can laugh at yourself, and at, with, near,
and around me. You prefer to laugh and learn from mistakes in life
rather than dwell. I don't necessarily need to meet someone with
the same interests as myself, but we should definitely spark one
Please don't be someone who has defined themselves by what they
dislike about the world. I have dislikes and I want to hear yours,
but I don't want to establish a relationship on negative
Although the reality of it all is very complicated, I need someone
who can communicate in a mature way. It's a must, but I know it
won't be perfect. If you want to try, then I'm interested.
I'm really curious about how other men my age represent themselves
on OKC. I don't get to see them. I'd be happy to share the same for
women. This whole thing is fantastically crazy!
I hate how first dates feel like interviews on this site. If you
feel we could make it simply nice, I'm interested.
So do it. Send me a message
