My self-summary
Laid back, driven, passionate, successful and don't take shit too seriously. I've travelled, stood my ground against a charging tiger, and have recently dabbled in standup comedy. My career makes no sense: a software engineer with a degree in film.

Ladies, I know dating can be a pain. I love a killer pair of heels, but if your feet hurt, wear flats. Go without makeup if it's more comfortable. I'd like to know the real you anyway. All the Dior and Chanel in the world won't fix boring. So I stopped using them.
What I’m doing with my life
At a media company in Beverly Hills, I build apps to empower people to change the world through social action. I've also worked on blockbuster movies, materials science research, and projects for biggies from Nike to USA Today.

To balance my creative side, I'm also a visual effects artist on indy films and an avid photographer. I'm about to embark on a crazy new documentary about the art world.

I also ski, snowboard, mountain bike, hike, camp, and whatever the hell else. I've been liking the Baldwin Hills and Santa Monica stairs lately.
I’m really good at
Photography, computer programming, building engaging web apps, improving myself, and making a fool out of myself on a karaoke stage.

I suck at making profiles on dating sites.
The first things people usually notice about me
I get lots of comments on my thick head of hair.

A creative outlet and intellectual challenge

Good music and humor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cutting edge science and technology, endeavors that fuel progress and move mankind ahead in leaps and bounds. Women :) Politics. What else? You don't want to know. Neither do I.
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe having dinner at a relative's. Maybe working. Maybe even out with friends. Or simply just relaxing at home.

There's no typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Back in my crazy days , I got a full body tattoo of myself but no one noticed.
You should message me if
If you're a misogynist, you find my profile boring, ya have something to offer.

And ladies, enough with the incessant sexual offers! I get it, you think I'm sexy and you want my body. But there's only one of me, too many of you, and I'm looking for something more substantial.
