I'm an avid runner...ran my third half marathon in May and certainly have the Chicago Marathon on my Must Do list. I'm considering a transition to triathlon training to give my knees a break...
I'm a writer. I've written some fiction over the last ten years that has drawn some notice in contests and such. I have several novels-in-progress. In the last year and a half, I've restricted my focus to TV writing. I have a sci-fi show that I'm developing with my film school professor and I'm piecing together another genre series that's still in the pre-first-draft stage. I spend most of my time and energy focused on this.
Recently, I've come to the realization that my life-to-work balance is out of whack. My happiest moments are spent creating in my office or running in the woods with my dog. Roger. Socializing is something I do infrequently. But I'm forcing myself to diversify. I'm extremely ambitious and driven and see where I want to strive, but at the same time I need to seek out connection and pleasure where I am, too. So that's why I'm on here and what I'm currently working on, in terms of self-improvement.
I love to just drive and see what little American towns pop up around a bend. People and places fascinate me. I've lived all over the country and could never see myself rooted to one place forever. I want to see the world. Not touristy spots but off-the-map places.
I'm adventurous and totally open to what the world presents. I may appear sort of preppie-bland, but I don't express myself through fashion and appearance (i really don't know how - maybe you could show me?). I'm a bit awed by people with a unique style. My "look" and polite/respectful manner is a shell that contains an inner fiery creativity and insatiable hunger to push my boundaries and EXPERIENCE LIFE.
