Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have no fear of commitment. I've been married, and hope to be
again. I'm not narcissistic, I'm humble, but damn confident. I'm a
good listener and a good talker. I'm never boring. I'm also not
loaded with issues or addictions. I have a lot of empathy. I was
brought up a progressive and a feminist, and I continue to be...
not to pander, but because that's what's right.
I'm a comedy TV director/editor from Chicago, but spent most of my
life in California (San Diego then LA). Honesty, kindness,
reliability, intelligence, and making women laugh until they say
"stop" are a big part of who I am. I'm looking for a serious
relationship where we can be totally un-serious. And I'm good at
keeping a woman fulfilled and laughing. I like women who are funny,
optimistic, clever, playful, ambitious, good with kids... and
concerned about making others happy. I think that describes me as
well. Also I'm kind of an over-achiever in making breakfasts and I
don't like to watch sports on TV.
I used to be a drummer (actually played in a lesbian band for
awhile) and like to keep up with music, but still have a soft spot
for old punk rock. I'm happily divorced with 2 great boys (6 and
9). I am kind, considerate, funny, generous, curious, interested in
new things and new people and don't mind a little or a lot of
change in life. I'm open minded politically, but tend to lean
I may have grown up quite a bit, but there is still that guy in
there who did stage dives at a Buzzcocks show in Tijuana and could
moon people while I drove. I like women who are a bit like that
too. Not crazy... completely sane, but a little wild.
I sometimes wonder if I'd rather hear a story of the time you
successfully did not go to Burning Man.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
TV and docs... mostly comedic and some hidden camera stuff. Did a
few features - one narrative, a couple documentaries, live in
Marina del Rey, with my two young boys (half the time). I spend a
lot of time in Venice... and lately traveling.
And trying to get off this site.
I’m really good at

I laugh a lot... and my eyes... and my thumbs (you'd have to see).

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Blackmagic Cinema Camera
the Magic Bullet (to make Oreo milk shakes)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What makes people laugh. Why people choose to watch one TV show
over another. Why people still believe politics is like a football
game, and you need to cheer on your favorite team.
Why women post the photo of them looking their skinniest....
instead, why don't you post the photo of you looking your
Also why someone brags about not owning or watching TV. Is it that
horrible to occasionally operate a machine that shows you free
movies, documentaries and other great entertainment?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing something unexpected. I gravitate toward Abbot Kinney.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cried during two comedies that probably nobody else cried at...
the movie "Chef" and "Easy Money"
I don't believe in luck, I believe in skill... and many days I do
feel the need to wear my skillful underpants.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are very funny and don't have 16 cats.
You are kind and see the power in kindness. It does not make you
You dont believe love is transactional... And sex is quid pro quo.
You saw Pretty Woman and found it backwards and repugnant for
progressive women. There are plenty of more romantic stories than
that of a prostitute finding a rich guy to love.
I've learned that a lot of men will behave in a way that makes
women regret they took the date. That doesn't happen with me. I can
assure you that I'm all about making someone have a good time over
a drink or dinner. And I'm a divorced guy and no longer "fresh" out
of a relationship. I'm happy, comfortable, and don't complain about
my ex. I'm at the point where I'd like to head toward a
Here's where things work out better between you and I: If you are
more left leaning politically, if you are open to the idea that
religion might be a fabrication, and if you burn hot with curiosity
and wonder, we will have many good times.
