My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay, you landed here. Awesome! But stop for my geography update. I'm in Redondo Beach now, about 2 blocks from the pier.

I'm known as solid, funny, creative... The 'go to' guy. I'd like to be off this site and in a long term relationship. So see what you think and what I'm about.

Background: I've been a Creative Director or web guru (on the team that put together www.hulu.com). I have a geek streak in information technology, but am always a writer.

I play guitar, have decent vocal chops, and a good sense of rhythm. Which is helpful in other areas :) Some folks think I'm funny...

At USC and UCLA, studied film, sociology, social policy... So I'm knowledgeable about some stuff, but also have stocks of useless information that I won't bore you with :)

Thankfully, I tend to know when to lead and when to follow...

My parents were married for 30 years, until my father died. I'm a relationship person, not a dater.

I like local travel and getaways (e.g. Catalina Island) Hole-in-the-wall restaurants can be cool. Hollywood Bowl and McCabes are cool for music.

I have a 16 year old daughter, a clarinet diva who lives with her mom a mile away. She has her own life :( As I did when I was 16. My mother warned, or hexed, me. 'Just wait, you'll have a kid who is like you...' I was more reasonable... But heard from numerous sources that 16 is a tough age for girls. Must it be tough on me? :)

So it would be great if you have a nurturing streak wider than dental floss. The daughter doesn't need it. I do!

Also, I have a unique 5 year-old blotchy tuxedo cat who belonged to the daughter. The cat understands many words, offers up her paw when she wants something, and thinks rolled up pipe cleaners are mice!.

While I would rather not date Dr. Doolittle, I can be the dog and cat whisperer. Conflicted?

Who am I looking for? Bright, funny, attractive, wise, communicative, arty, light baggage... funny? If we click and know each other for a while, I do bring flowers.

If you're arty, but not nuts, that would be a plus :).

Please, no 'I want to travel the world' women.. Seriously, I do travel, but not in retirement mode. I will never go on a cruise on any of those filthy cruise ships. A 80 foot fishing boat is cleaner :)

What do I like to do? Riding bikes, beach volleyball (I used to be good...), plays, movies, museums and art galleries... I can cook, but would prefer to share duties. I'm open to adventure, but I'm not skydiving or rock-climbing. I did a 13 mile trail ride in the mountainous interior of Catalina Island in last August.

Just about whatever you have going on... I will be supportive.. In general, I will have your back.

As a 'homebody with options', I'll often write or play my acoustic guitar. Or write...

Thank you for reading...

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
-- I direct and manage large web sites and intranet business applications. And I write.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Scripting things, comedy, web stuff, writing, being a friend ('go to' guy), photography. Sports involving a ball.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Voice. Tallness. Smile. Boyish look like a kid, I'm told. And have thick hair. Nothing fake. Look like my pics.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Inception, Avatar, The Hangover, Shawshank Redemption, Casablanca, Chinatown, Hurt Locker, Swept Away (original). I'll tear up on Field of Dreams, Forrest Gump and other films. Even Avatar...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food, water, love, music, cookies... not necessarily in that order. I could survive without my iPhone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to get off this site. That's what the "done part of my dopey screen name is...

Seriously, politics, media, world events, music, people...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Resting from the work week. Playing guitar or songwriting. Watching Bill Maher on HBO. But I can be persuaded to do other things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nada. later...
