Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, I'm Neil. Visiting from seattle this week... I'd like to think
I'm a good guy... I see life with a philosopher's perspective...
but I can get caught up in the anxiety of life just like anyone
I live my life with a few simple truisms always in mind:
1) Nothing is strictly black or white... My answer to almost any
question is "It depends."
2) Happiness is more important than money... though, often, it can
be hard to tell the difference.
3) Everything in life is a trade-off... I simply cannot have
EVERYTHING I want and what I want always has a price.
4) What I think I want or need is not always what I actually want
5) There is no such thing as failing... only a decision to stop
trying to try something else instead.
I love to laugh! I love satire, innuendoes double
I'm passionate about photography, film, and developing creative
ideas. I love spending time with passionate, open minded
I enjoy going to movies, funky jazz bars and taverns, book stores,
concerts, walking around with friends, board game nights, parks,
and generally anything that allows for bonding with people or
After living alone for the past several years, I'm excited to now
be living in a shared house with 10 people and 9 dogs! :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I left the corporate life to find fulfilment in artistic endeavors.
I have my own business so I work a lot... it's hard to call it work
since I spend all day, every day doing exactly what I would choose
to do AFTER coming home from work at some corporate job. :)
I run a commercial photography studio and teach all kinds of
photography classes. I've recently gotten involved in filmmaking as
a cinematographer, producer, director and editor, depending on what
is needed... I'm also a partner in a gourmet tea company.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
a bunch of stuff... photography, teaching, writing, reading,
rambling, eating, making tea, playing with dogs... :)
The first things people usually notice about me

You tell me... I've been told I look "younger and cuter in person"
... whatever that means. :P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I mostly read hard Sci-Fi... stuff with real science and
technology... none of that warlock magic stuff. ;-)
I love movies with great actors, great stories, great music, great
visuals, great ideas...
Classical, jazz, indie, electronic, and more... I love when friends
give me new music to listen to. Music with a good beat makes me
want to move. :)
I love healthy food, cheese and crackers, sushi, asian, japanese,
Dim Sum, chocolate (dark only) and of course... tea. I also love
french fries! :/
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Aside from the basic things like food, water, shelter, etc...
1 - Human contact
2 - Humor
3 - Sunlight
4 - Creative outlets
5 - Friends who challenge me to grow
6 - Family who encourage and support me in my endeavors
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
communication styles... when I have conflicts with people I think
about my part in it... creative projects... what's ACTUALLY
important in a partner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
probably doing something creative
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've maintained good friendships with every serious boyfriend I've
had. Love is love... even if it doesn't include sex and romance. If
I fall in love, I'm yours for life.
