My self-summary
I'm a romantic, driven, sensitive, intelligent, passionate, confident, arts-obsessed blue-eyed Irish bastard (literally) from Southern California. I offer my opinions freely (and mostly sans solicitation), am widely considered fuckkkkking intense, can recite Rich, play Bach's chaconne, or sing some Donny Hathaway from memory (parlor tricks, see), and I've been known to wilt like a wallflower over saccharine shit like videos of puppies playing in a field of daffodils or, well, any of the many insufferable romcoms wherein Hugh Grant plays lead.

I find life and relationships most fulfilling when I'm being exposed to something new or challenged to reconsider something long standing. Growth, in short. I'm certainly a work in progress, but that being said I know what I want and am not afraid of getting it: a partner (in both mischief and monogamy)—someone compelling, challenging, and inexhaustibly curious.

"I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I've lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment."—Steinbeck

[According to a good friend/dude I met on this ish and dated back in the day, my "self-summary" is pretty solid. He did, however, suggest I mention that I'm real bossy. Mostly because it's true.]
What I’m doing with my life
After several years in local media—writing and art directing for various local and national mags and broadsheets + writing/hosting/producing for TV—I went rogue and am now a freelance "consultant." [consultant ≠ a euphemism for prostitute. promise.]
I’m really good at
... you can be the judge.

The six things I could never do without
I just can't bring myself to imagine that great bonds are formed over the shared pseudo necessity of, say, an iPhone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A // Why folks ask questions they think they should ask instead of asking the ones they want to ask.
B // The many ways in which gin is, truly, a gift from the heavens.
C // Why Elgar's violin concerto— a richly expressive monument of Romanticism—is so rarely performed.
D // Why I invariably use about 1247812367812356123 more adjectives than are called for/necessary/acceptable.
E // Whether I can survive another New England winter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Blahblah something about roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars blahblahblah something about there never being a typical night because, "Dude seriously, I'm so clever and interesting" blahblahfuckingblah.

You should message me if
If you're curious, if you're charming, if you're passionate, if you're idiosyncratic, if you're funny, if you read all of the above (points for stamina), and definitely if you winced a few times while doing so.

Or if you're none of those things but want to share something, about anything, with me. I'm the oldest of four boys. I appreciate sharing.
