Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay...well I'm a self-employed, small business owner in his
mid-30's who loves to have a good time and loves to grab a few
drinks and get a little crazy but I can also have a lot of fun just
lounging around watching TV or going to the movies. I'm extremely
friendly and outgoing and I can adapt to pretty much any
environment and be comfortable just about anywhere. I love to poke
fun at people and tease them (in a good-natured way, never mean)
and I love to be made fun of in return. I can't stand people who
take themselves too seriously and can't laugh at their own
ridiculousness (which we all have).
As for a little of my backstory, I was born in Queens and raised on
Long Island. I went to film school with the hope of breaking into
movies as a writer/director. I made a few films and was the most
part a failure. On a lark I moved into theater and found success
there. I've had a great run over the past five years in the
off-off-Broadway market. I've had three of my plays pubished and
they all have been produced in numerous cities. One was even
produced several times in Australia.
Although I've written some dramas, I'm much more comfortable
writing comedy and that's where I've had most of my success. (Does
that mean I'm funny? I hope so)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As I mentioned, I co-own a small business, which pays the bills but
I am also a writer. Although I've found most of my success in
theater, well, all of it actually, I am also a screenwriter and
have recently begun writing essays and commentaries.
It is possible, however unlikley, that you've heard of one or two
of my shows. My first play "Angry Young Women In Low Rise Jeans
With High Class Issues" has been produced 6 times in NY, twice in
Los Angeles, twice in Sydney, Australia and once in Brisbane,
Australia. It's also been published by Samuel French Inc.
My second show, "All Aboard the Marriage Hearse" has played twice
in NY, once in LA and once even in Wisconsin.
I do love writing for live theater, especially comedy. It is such a
great feeling to see a room full of people laugh at something you
wrote. On the other hand, it's also an awful feeling to see them
sit silently when they hate it! Fortunately, that doesn't happen
Ideally, I would love to make a living as a writer, preferably
making movies but I do love theater and television so I'd be happy
doing anything. I just love to write.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think I'm really good at making people laugh and showing
people a good time. I have no problem carrying on a good
conversation. And if I'm having a conversation with someone who can
talk, I can do that for hours.
I'm also really good at karaoke. Well, I guess that depends on your
definition of good. If your definition of good is someone with a
nice singing voice, then I suck. But if your definition of good is
going up there without inhibition and tearing it up and having fun,
I'm a good drinker. I can hold my liquor and I never get out of
hand or rude or disrespectful and I never get "beer muscles."
I'm a lousy at bowling but who gives a damn about bowling.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
As a former film student I have lots of favorite movies. The
original "Rocky" jumps right to the top of the list along with the
original "Arthur." I do love "Casablanca" and "One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest," Woody Allen's "Manhattan" and many others.
As far as TV goes, I"m not too crazy about anything that's on now.
I am a huge fan of the original "Law and Order", I could watch 100
episodes in a row of that. I love "Seinfeld" and "Cheers" and I do
enjoy "The Middle" and "The Big Bang Theory."
I love pretty much all music. I can enjoy just about everything in
its time and place. I can enjoy some Rihanna or Katy Perry as much
as Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd. But my personal all time favorites
are Prince, Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne. I've seen them
all in concert and they were incredible.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could never do without the ocean (I thnk I'd always have to live
near the ocean), music, cable news shows, sushi, good movies and
stupid people (I'd have no career without them. They've given me so
