At home I'm funny (sometimes funny ha-ha and sometimes funny strange) and a great storyteller. I cook from scratch and love trying new recipes on unsuspecting guests. I'm an early riser, but I'll let you sleep. I'm loyal to a fault and support my friends and loved ones, insightful and patient. I absolutely adore my nieces and nephew.
At work I'm a successful lighting designer and theatre designer (new and renovated buildings, I no longer design shows). I also teach lighting design, and have just published my first book on design. I'm fortunate in that I love what I do, and I get paid for it!
While I'm not a gym freak, I lead a pretty healthy life and enjoy the time I spend at the gym or otherwise taking care of myself. I enjoy going to the theatre and museums, studying design, hanging out with friends etc. I stay on top of the news and current events, even though lately it sometimes makes me want to tear my hair out!
You're fun and funny. You like your job, even if it isn't your career. You're honest, caring and serious about your next relationship. Please enjoy the theatre and the arts, and offer to do the dishes when I'm cooking (better yet, offer to cook with me). Enjoy talking about ideas and be able to see several sides of an issue. The rest we'll work out as we go along.
Personally: Hanging out with friends, being the Funnest Uncle Ever, trying to figure out a new furniture arrangement in my apartment.
Finding the humor in most situations
I almost always have music playing, and my tastes in music are eclectic. My Pandora stations range from A-ha and Ani DiFranco to Chicago, Crooked Still, Morcheeba and Train.
My tv favs include Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, The West Wing, Battlestar Galactica and Jon Stewart. I'm a guy, so I'm required to like The Godfather.
