What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
being a creative type, making a great living doing the things I love; writing, acting, reading. also learning, looking for ways to make a positive contribution, spending time with friends and family, trying to help out when I can.

love to do more exploring of the L.A. art scene, galleries, museums and see more of the wilds of California's outdoors nature parks take the trusty subaru back up to yosemite also psyched to get over to Europe & The UK again
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
listening, kindness, being curious, figuring out how things work, being patient, empathizing, raising either eyebrow to indicate a healthy skepticism, noticing the little-noticed. I can tie a bow tie without a mirror, not sure if that helps

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
family, friends, physical activity, a creative outlet, humor, music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
chips & salsa.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like that zen-like, existential statement, OkCupid.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I fed a squirrel outside of window at my place nearly everyday for a month this fall. Some might think this is pest-enabling. I think I'm doing my part for peaceful cross-species diplomacy.

I agree with a lot of you who point out admitting a "private" thing makes this a self-contradicting statement.

That said, plenty of formerly private things are probably contained in my answers to OkCupid questions.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

-you'd like to teach me something, anything: piano, photoshop, ballroom dancing, Spanish, how to do that loud, fingers-in-your-mouth kind of whistle
-you believe that there are still decent, smart, fun guys out there and know you deserve to be with one
-you value your independence and know that being with a cool person means both of you get both independence & togetherness
-you aren't accessing this from the prison library computer
