Oh hi there! I'm James. Good to meet you. I'm an optimist and always see the lighter side of things. Laughter is very important for me so I always love hanging with my friends. I love movies as much as the outdoors. Hiking, frisbee, it's all good! I love to travel (especially when work pays). I had a great time in Germany, Mexico, Spain, Amsterdam, and all over the US and Canada. Hawaii is a personal favorite. I'm very happy in my career and going places, but know how to stop and smell the rises on the way. I'm looking for someone willing to enjoy life with me, cheesy as that sounds.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a cinematographer/photographer working for a production company
in Santa Monica. I have an identical twin brother and we are
currently both working together. I'm a photographer in my spare
time, and I almost always have a camera handy. I'm really into
green cars, and have an all-electric Nissan LEAF. I would love a
Tesla Model S.
I love going to a movie, grabbing coffee or drinks with friends,
going for a walk or hike, seeing a live show or concert, clubbing,
camping, traveling, and being social in general.
I really enjoy my life, and where it's going.
I’m really good at
My job. I'm usually thinking about light, my environment, people,
emotions, and how I'd photograph it all. Because of that, I'm
really in tune with people, and am a good listener. I'm pretty
handy at frisbee, hiking, Rock Band, nature-loving, movie-watching,
building things with my hands, changing a flat tire, sorta almost
cooking, and ... other ... stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
If my twin brother is next to me, they notice that. If he's not
nearby, they notice I'm tall. Also I sometimes wear a nerdy shirt.
Third, uh... My eyes. They're blue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like books, really, just not good at finishing them lately. I'm
into all types of movies, but my top favs are Back to the Future,
Lord of the Rings, Dark City, and The Abyss. Too many movies I love
to list here. I love live theater, like plays or standup or improv.
I'm into music, but usually when it's live. I love food! My
favorite is sushi, followed by mexican, italian, Thai, BBQ and many
others. I eat healthy too, when I can.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm almost always thinking about how I'd photograph whatever is
around me. I'm very social so I'm often thinking about the next
time I get to hang out with friends.
Lately I've been wondering how to best first-message people. I may
be over thinking this.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about. Watching a movie at the Arclight. Making a movie.
Quiet night at home. Loud night at home. Wishing everyone wasn't
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm kinda quiet. I'm not afraid of silence, I'm just a better
listener than a talker.
You should message me if
You need a guy who's not an A-hole.
You think life is pretty neat.
I messaged you.
