My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*Currently living in NYC. Moving to Joliet in February 2015*
**And...currently rewriting this literary atrocity of a profile**

I'm a writer. I spend my time observing human nature, human interaction, the flaws of humanity, and then make fun of it, in truly cruel ways. Just joshing. I'm a novelist and a comic book writer. Working studiously on creating books that don't end up being coasters or fireplace kindling.

The next statement is for clarification, and not intended to sound arrogant.

I'm an ex-member of Mensa. I say this because in the past, I've had to suppress that rather integral part of my personality, in an attempt to not alienate potential partners. That proved problematic, and drove me, in a phrase, up the freaking wall. There's nothing more stultifying than having to curb your nature, to make someone else comfortable.

Ain't doing that anymore. So, best be prepared gentle souls, the mad genius is come, and he's bringing all of his toys with him. *Maniacal laughter*
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finally embraced my love of language and letters. Reclaimed my artistic spirit, and embarked on a journey that all storytellers must...to write. I'm also an avid and shameless comic book maven/fan/nerd/________(insert preferred appellation). I'm currently working on two passion projects, both writing and illustrating, lots of gloriously grueling work, but I've never been happier.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Anything I attempt.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My size, I'm a large imposing figure at 6'4".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I know this answer is trite and can be perceived as a cop out, but I have so many favorites they are too numerous to list.

However, I've read King, Meyers, Ellison, Huges, Angelou, Miller, Hemingway, Hammett, Chandler, and Rowling.

And although I've steeped myself in traditional literature, I regularly devour more non-mainstream authors like Gaiman, Snyder, Kirkman, Morrison, Bendis, Lemire, and Hickman. And if you know at least two of those names I will marry you on the spot and supply you with endless footrubs and small graham crackers covered in chocolate...just sayin.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My daughter, my family, my sketchbook, my notebook, my smartphone, my imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The writing I need to do, and if my daughter and family are safe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either with my daughter, writing, or drawing, or reading. I'm not one for drink or clubs. I does dig a very nice coffee house, poetry-slam, or the occasional popcorn filled flick. One of the only times I'll put Coca Cola in my body. It's a thing... I ain't ashamed!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've actually read Twilight, and My Blood Approves...lol
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're bright, fearless, curious, and can carry a conversation. And are intelligent enough to look beyond surface and pre-conceived beliefs on age and compatibility.

I don't want to be the man of anyone's dreams. Dreams are fleeting, ephemeral things, that are made to dissolve in sunlight, and disappear upon waking. I want to be the man next to you, poking you with is elbow while you sleep. Blowing raspberries on your tummy, holding you close on winter nights, or while watching a movie that scares the poop out of you. I want to be the man that walks through life with you, holding your hand, making you laugh, and arguing about who's turn it is to take out the trash. Dream men are for romance novels.

I'm not a man who likes to spend a lot of time on trivialities (unless its a goofball conversation about how insane people can be, or how many of the real housewives husbands need to invest in divorces), and I sincerely hate wasting time, mine or anyone elses. We're put here to experience,learn, love, laugh, fart, burp, and be happy. Not necessarily in that order.
