The best way to summarize myself is with what I'm passionate about. I love my job, mostly because of all the fantastic people I get to work with each day. We have a large team of 80 people, full of diversity and creativity. I can't imagine what it's like to have a job that you don't love - I've never been able to settle for something I'm not committed to, and luckily I've always been happy where I work.
Music is a huge part of my life. I worked in record stores for almost 20 years, played in bands, and spent a lot of time at concerts. I don't see bands as much as I used to, but still go when I can.
Next is movies. I'm a huge movie buff, and like to see a new movie in a theatre almost every week. Some of my favourite directors are Woody Allen, Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson, Terrence Malick, Luis Malle, Kubrick, Chaplin, and Whit Stillman (although I was disappointed with Damsels In Distress, I'll probably have to see it again). Frances Ha was my favourite this year.
Other than that, I would describe myself as someone who loves to laugh and have fun. I can be a bit goofy, actually. I enjoy that in people too. What I'm looking for on this site is for someone who is passionate about their interests, who speaks their mind and has opinions. Someone who feels that life can be crazy and difficult, but also fun and adventurous, and is looking for a partner to share it with.
