Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Time for an update! Who is this odd creature with the weird
nickname, you ask? Well first, go and watch this:
Good, now we're on the same page. So some basics about me: I'm
college-educated, have a full-time job, live by myself with no
roommates and no pets (I'm allergic to both cats and dogs,
unfortunately), and I'm genuinely enjoying my life although it
sometimes feels like I'm spreading myself too thin. I'm indulging
in hobbies (drumming and filmmaking specifically) and enjoying the
company of family and friends whenever I can. Pretty generic, eh?
Well let's read on and see if we can't learn a bit more.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finding a pretty good balance between being a "responsible,
upstanding citizen" and "being a freewheeling creative spirit." I
have a "day job" which is really more of an "evening job" since I
work second shift by choice. I work for an airline, and while I
don't fly as part of my job, I do fly as a *perk* of my job. My
most recent trip was to Brussels which I enjoyed, and I'm thinking
Australia or China next.
In my spare time, I make movies. Or rather, I am making *a* movie.
I'm hoping to shoot my first feature-length movie in the coming
weeks. It will be a pro-science educational film for teachers to
show in their classes and spark discussions about evolution, the
scientific method, etc. After that I'll start working on a more
character-driven piece. Any screenwriters out there? Let's talk.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making plans and organizing people around those plans. My day job
requires me to get a large group of people focused on a single task
in a hurry, and my role as film director involves much the same
thing. I feel like I'm herding cats most of the time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm surprisingly quiet or surprisingly outgoing depending on the
situation at hand. I don't particularly like to "go out," but I
love hosting parties, and I'm pretty good at keeping conversation
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy reading historical nonfiction - although I'll confess to
having gotten halfway through two Ron Chernow books before giving
in to brain mushiness. I aspire to be a filmmaker, so I'll watch
any kind of movie that has half a brain. I don't watch much TV, but
I'm a huge MST3k fan. Music I'm not too picky about, but it'll take
me a while before I become a "fan" of some new artist...and I hate
the crap they play at my gym. Food...yes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Some means of recording visual images.
2) Some means of recording audio frequencies.
3) A group of dedicated people focused on a common goal.
4) The ability to set my own ego aside (on very rare occasions) and
focus on the end result.
5) My principles.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I want to travel next. What sort of movies I want to make. At
what point I will think "I'm a good drummer."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Any one of a number of places. Home, Emporium, a Meetup, a date,
traveling, you name it. I work every other weekend, but the
weekends I don't work are four-day weekends. Pretty sweet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty much an open book. They say "be yourself"...well, okay,
here goes. I'm looking for the whole package - a long-term
monogamous relationship, marriage, kids, a nice house, etc. But the
devil's in the details, of course. My ideal woman is intelligent
(which may or may not include a college education), is passionate
about *something* (social justice, freedom from religion, fiscal
responsibility at all levels of government, you name it), has a
healthy maternal drive, is sexually submissive (although we can
discuss that later - I don't want a relationship just based on that
commonality), enjoys a good workout, enjoys traveling and
experiencing different cultures, is energetic but knows to stop and
smell the roses often, and is past her "let's hang out in a loud
crowded bar" phase.
