My self-summary
Okay, so after much procrastination and a few comments about how I should fill this out ...

I was born and raised in Chicago. I've lived in Paris, NYC and LA, but but always come home and outside of some long projects abroad and around the country would love to stay here. I've got a couple of degrees (most from Northwestern and my JD from Loyola). I have two French Bull dogs who act as surrogate kids for me (Yes, they have Xmas stockings). It's very important to me that whoever I'm with likes animals. I think dogs are a constant reminder of what unconditional love is and that it's a magnificent thing to have in our lives.

As for my personality: I like to think I'm witty, smart, logical, creative and an all around "nice guy"(Who doesn't, right?). I'm super competitive and can be stubborn at times. I'm a far better human being after 10AM and a large espresso. I'm sentimental.

I love to shock people and tend not to give a f#ck about being politically correct. I'm a liberal Republican (I leave this to you to figure out) To quote Henry Drummond: " I don't swear just for the hell of it. Language is a poor enough means of communication. I think we should use all the words we've got. Besides, there are damn few words that anybody understands. " Oh, and I quote a lot. I believe in the power of words and feel if someone has said it perfectly, why mess with it.

I would love to meet that someone special. You know: when it just clicks. A person who makes you smile when you're at your worst and who makes "good times" seem like "great times".
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an ex-litigator - turned playwright & stage director, turned filmmaker & entertainment lawyer ... meaning I work in the entertainment industry. I have started and not finished writing "the great American Novel" more times than I can count.
I’m really good at
Problem solving on the fly, polishing scripts, mingling, getting strange animals to like me (domestic ones ...not like White-faced Saki Monkeys and Armadillos). Singing Elvis songs at karaoke ... I'm not sure if this should go into the most private thing I'm willing to admit here?
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and hands. And that I tend to switch between and my beard and goatee weekly
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Tao of Pooh, Of Mice and Men, To The Lighthouse & Illusions, The Dante Club & anything by Tom Robbins (except "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues").
Movie: My Favorite Year, Living in Oblivion, Any of the Lord of the Rings, When Harry Met Sally, Witness For the Prosecution & almost any by Woody Allen (later stuff) or Hitchcock.
Shows: Into The Woods, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, Camelot, Any Shakespeare, Beckett, Albee and T. Williams (if I feel like drinking)
Music: Blues, Industrial & "a bit of the old Ludwig Van" (points if you know the movie!). Got to throw Van Morrison, James Taylor and Patricia Barber in here.
Food: Korean BBQ, Steak, Sushi
The six things I could never do without
1. My Family & Friends
2. My Dogs (I have 2 Frenchies: Fred & Lizzy)
3. Espresso
4. A creative outlet
5 & 6. Maslow's first 2 tiers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Plot lines and twists.
On a typical Friday night I am
There ain't no answer. There ain't gonna be any answer. There never has been an answer. That's the answer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I absolutely never had any concept of how important travel was to women until I joined this site. Addendum: I hate snow! Addendum to Addendum: I hate cold much more than snow.
You should message me if
If you'd like to chat online or grab a cup of coffee and wax eloquently about pretty much anything OR if you really like this song:
I do prefer to actually talk in person or on the phone to see if we get a long - so please no permanent internet pen-pals.
