My self-summary
How to sum up the "self"?

I'm part educator, part writer, part roadtrip taker, part film festival expert, part empathetic, part follower of politics, part goofball, part old-fashioned, part kid-friendly, part movie lover, part reader, part videographer, part good but aggressive driver, part joke maker, part cooker of food, part animal lover, part non-smartphone owner (not yet anyway), part Netflix obsessive, part drinker of ales and glogg, part archivist and a very, very small part guitar player.
What I’m doing with my life
Wrapping up post-production on my latest short film. Super proud of this one. Can't wait to send it out to the festivals.

Hosting a screening of 'Saturday Night Fever' in Wheaton.

I'm a teacher, film critic and I have my own wedding videography business.
I’m really good at
Making short films, using my time wisely, self-awareness, taking things in stride without being a pushover, working with kids, cracking wise, writing, speaking in public, recommending a movie for just about any situation. I will get back to guitar lessons as soon as I'm finished with my current film project.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm one of those people you see when you're out people watching (you picked a good spot, by the way).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Films that have had an impact on my life in one way or another:
Brazil, E.T., Stop Making Sense, Tree of Life, Joe Versus the Volcano, American Movie

Books: Just finished the Jim Henson biography. Contact by Carl Sagan; A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole; Killing Bono by Neil McCormick; Into the Wild by John Krakauer; Harry Potter series; Andy Kaufman Revealed by Bob Zmuda. Life Itself by Roger Ebert.

TV: Modern Family, Arrested Development, Louie, Freaks and Geeks, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Daily Show, Colbert, House of Cards, Breaking Bad, South Park, Monty Python, It's Always Sunny...

Music: Arcade Fire, U2, The Frames (and Swell Season), Neko Case, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Talking Heads/David Byrne, St. Vincent, Beck, The xx, The National, The Feelies, The Beatles, Radiohead, Wilco. That song Gonzo sings in The Muppet Movie.

Food: Glogg slushies at Simon's is my new reason to live. Red velvet pancakes.
The six things I could never do without
"Everything is better with beer and monkeys."
--Maya Angelou

Okay, but really (in no particular order)...
Movies (it's my passion and we all need one of those)
My job (I love it that much)
My friends and family (kind of a no-brainer)
Hopes and dreams (stagnant is boring)
Traveling (see "hopes and dreams")
A nearby city (I'd freak out if I lived in the middle of nowhere)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As good as things are right now, I feel like the best part of my life hasn't started yet.

How come nobody wears a bullet-proof helmet?

Are smart phones and constant checking of updates training our brains to be distracted?
On a typical Friday night I am
Collapsing after a long week of dealing with other people's children. But I will go out if provoked.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a weakness for the "Step Up" movies.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 31–42
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
You really are serious about starting something new and aren't "set in your ways." That seems to be a tall order these days for people in my age group.

And you got that the Maya Angelou thing was a joke, right?
