Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a nerd. And yes, we come in brown. ;)
I am NOT a "douchebag" who is only looking for a one -night stand
or casual sex. I am looking for someone smart and cute to spend my
free time with.
And no, I am not "comfortable in my own skin." I'm nervous,
neurotic, clumsy, awkward and shy. Think Woody Allen with a deep
tan and a penchant for poetic profanity, sans the pedophilia (yeah,
say that three times fast).
A friend told me once that he had read somewhere that only 2% of
the world's population displays what can be considered as "true
passion." I am the 2%.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing and directing films that win multiple awards but make very
little money. Gotta fix that at some point. And teaching at a local
art college to pay the bills.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking (from recipes)
Winning film festival awards
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Cool frames (re: eyeglasses)
Jenna: We all have our roles in college. I'm the hot blonde.
Tracy: And I'm the nerd who takes off his glasses and everyone
realizes he's handsome.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Anything approximating Southern Gothic...including William
Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Cormac McCarthy, and Toni Morrison.
Throw in anything Junot Diaz, Don DeLillo and Richard Yates. Still
haven't gotten around to Franzen or Lethem, yet. Been meaning to
Most films directed by Wong Kar-Wai, Takeshi Kitano, François
Truffaut, Terrance Malick, P.T. Anderson, Spike Jonze and Shohei
Imamura. Anything Charlie Kaufman (I absolutely love ETERNAL
SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND). My all time favorite film, however,
is CITY OF GOD.
True Detective, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards, House
of Lies, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Community, Parks
& Rec...and Girls (yep, I admit it). And anything cooking
related or food & travel related...basically everything on the
Anything and everything.
Everything except country and R&B. I'm kind of obsessed with
Yppah, Bonobo, Metronomy, and STRFKR at the moment. Can't stop
listening to them.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sex (have to admit it)
(Yeah, that's seven! What?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My first feature film.
How to break into TV directing.
Story themes: broken people, self-destructive tendencies, alcohol
dependency, drug addiction, cycles of violence, psychological
dysfunction, existential legacies, the fragility of human
relationships...love...unrequited love...mad love...star-crossed
...Boston Terriers...French Bulldogs...
...Korean BBQ...and a good bowl of Hakata style ramen.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Since I don't know that many people here, and the few friends that
are in the area are super busy industry types, I'm usually working
on lesson plans or personal film projects. I know: BORING! That's
why I'm here on OKC.
Sometimes I grab drinks with my friends, though. It seems just as
hard to catch up with people here as it is in New York.
