My self-summary
I am a writer, artist, man,.. But then... those are pretty subjective... I'm objectively 5'10" at least. I have a mouth, two eyes, a nose, ten fingers and ten(ish) toes. My attitude tends to mix equal parts sugar and salt.

I think a hallmark of a strong relationship is each person knowing (down to specifics) how the other likes their eggs.
What I’m doing with my life
I published my first novel a couple years ago. Ever working on that second. In the meantime, I'm soon to host a monthly film festival.

I left the diet, drugs, and income sections intentionally blank on this profile because what are you, my mother?
I’m really good at
Clearly, and I think we can all agree here, writing OkCupid profiles.
The first things people usually notice about me
They notice that when I walk in a room, this starts playing...

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Women, naturally... and women naturally.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a drink with you, of course. Am I late? Oh god. First there was this thing at the office. Here, let me take your coat. You wouldn't believe it. We had to fix this whole series of... You weren't waiting long, were you? Okay, good. Well anyway, then traffic was horrid and it was just pandemonium, and... Is that our waiter? Let me flag him down and get us some drinks. Waiter! He sees me. Anyhow, you look great. New color of lipstick? Change your hair? Something. Well you look wonderful.
I tell you, I am bushed. Should we start with a cocktail or are you feeling more like a beer? Oh! Hello, waiter. I'll have a gin and ginger with half ginger beer, half ginger ale, and a lime, on ice, please. Water also. And dear, what are you having?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once invented (and played to fruition) a great set of rules for Strip Scrabble. It's true. Strip Scrabble is what all the kids are playing these days.
You should message me if
I don't much care for when people detail a laundry list of qualities they are looking for, buttttt based on the messages I've been receiving, I do feel the need to mention a few desires...

-I would like a woman with me who is present with their feelings, and is not in the throes of our collective generational ennui. Emotional vacancy is bogus and seemingly rampant.

-I'd like a woman with me who is relatively fit/slim. This provides no judgement or commentary on shapes of women -- all builds and sizes are unique and beautiful -- only a commentary on what I, personally, am attracted to. I think a lot on this -- on how to be an ally and properly support positive body images for women while simultaneously admitting and coming to terms with my own standards of attraction. It's an ongoing process, but, at present, I admit that I am seeking a fit, slim, athletic, or petite individual.

-I'd like a woman with me who is tolerant of my occasional dips into dorkdom. If the thought of a man marathoning Star Trek with a bottle of wine and art supplies on a Saturday night sends you running for the hills... well... I hope it's nice up there... in those hills... because that was my past weekend. I mean, I keep it all in check. No fedoras or trench coats or conventions or anything. Just some mild media fanaticism to be tolerated.
