My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Greetings and welcome. I'm originally from Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I moved to LA almost 2 years ago after living in NY for 8 months (Woodside, Queens, just off the 7 train). I work in Hollyweird as a Steadicam operator and grip/electrician. I'm not a fan of the "self summary", implies we're actually just some simple, distilled condition rather than an individual "self". I also tend to get random, tangential and rambly.

I like speaking with some people, although sometimes I just run out of steam with everyday, boring conversation. I love the history of the music I like, the sensory memories they evoke and the energy they release. I love film for it's subtle and brilliant language, cinematography and shared experience. I love most sports where I strap things to my feet, including rollerblading, ice skating and skiing.

I have two degrees (Mgmt of Information Systems and Film Production), but school just isn't for me.

I am flammable, fallible, and funny
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When I'm working, it's 10-14+ hour days of exhaustion and a blur of passing time. I'm working towards a solid career in production as a Steadicam operator, which may someday open up the opportunity to live elsewhere? Not that I'm opposed to LA, I like it here, but I think living overseas someday would be incredible.

When I'm not working, I find myself up to all sorts of nonsense. Learning to play golf (gotta get rid of this nasty slice), and cooking entertains me lately. I received a cookbook filled with recipes submitted by various heavy/death metal bands around the world, and so far the "Mummified Jalapeno Bacon Bombs" are the big winner. Also thinking of forming a post-rock band with some friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can whip up a pretty tasty dinner given only a few ingredients. Explaining theoretical physics or fighting back a mosh pit. I'm yearning for the day I can explain (what I understand of) non-locality in a mosh pit. Also, I think I'm pretty clever with technology. In the non-nerd realm, I'm pretty good on skates (rollerblade or ice skates) and skis. Growing up in Florida certainly hasn't troubled my winter sports habits, it seems.
The first things people usually notice about me

Whatever they notice first, they seem to amend later after they've gotten to know me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: "Bodies in Motion and at Rest" and "The Undertaking" by Thomas Lynch; "House of Leaves", "Born Standing Up" by Steve Martin, "The Virgin Suicides", a couple Chuck Palahniuk novels, and lots of non-fiction (really love Michio Kaku's books on theoretical physics). "When Rabbit Howls" by The Troops for Truddi Chase would knock your socks off, but many probably couldn't make it through it. Plato's Republic. Freakonomics is really fascinating, about to start Super-Freakonomics.

Movies: (in 2009) - World's Greatest Dad (FANTASTIC), District 9, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Up In the Air, Up.
I have somewhere around 350 movies in my DVD collection. A small sample: American Beauty, Fight Club, Northfork, Titus, Irreversible, The Thomas Crown Affair, The Prestige, Children of Men, Pan's Labyrinth, Almost Famous, Dazed and Confused, Friday, Joe v. The Volcano, Sunshine, This Is England, No Country for Old Men, Snow Angels

TV: (I download or watch online) 30 Rock, Dexter, Entourage, Breaking Bad, Californication, Daily Show, Colbert Report.

Music: my iTunes library probably implies someone with disassociative identity disorder... Rock, hard rock, alternative, metal, post-rock/post-metal, electronic/dance, ambient, lots of classical and whatever else tickles my fancy. I grew up listening to classic rock bands like Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, Lynard Skynard and Neil Young, and I've even got some Eurythmics in my emotional memory. Nine Inch Nails, Opeth, Amon Amarth, Led Zeppelin, Portishead, Sigur Ros, Pantera, Machine Head, Bowery Electric, Unearth, Mastodon, Nirvana, New Order, Prodigy, KMFDM, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys... and so on...

Here's twelve albums in heavy rotation:
Machine Head - The Blackening
Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard - The Dark Knight original score
Mudvayne - Mudvayne
Opeth - Lamentations (live album)
Every Time I Die - New Junk Aesthetic
Skold vs KMFDM - Skold vs KMFDM
Behemoth - Evangelion
Hans Zimmer - Modern Warfare 2 original score
Ancestors - Of Sound Mind
Wolves in the Throne Room - Malevolent Grain
Cannibal Corpse - Kill
Saviours - Accelerated Living

Food: I was once addicted to the Hemp Ale BBQ Chicken Wrap at "Good", but their service sucks lately, so I'm holding out. Favorite restaurants in LA include: Red Lion, Gates of India, Best Fish Tacos in Los Feliz, Griddle Cafe, and when all else fails, In-n-Out.

Cuisines: thai, indian, sushi, some chinese, some italian, mexican is growing on me, and always room for a good burger. Anything spicy, or that I can make spicy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never? Not so sure about NEVER. However, here are a few things I'm gladly entangled with:
- iPhone
- I know I'll one day need to do without them, but for now, my parents (I've hit that age where their advice is greatly appreciated)
- The gym. I just love it.
- Work
- My music
- a cold beer.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Tattoos I want, physics, toilets, why LA streets are so horrible, the Dewey Decimal System, upper atmosphere nuclear testing, skydiving, ants, landscaping and agriculture, the economy, living in Hawaii or overseas, space travel, why they don't just put pornography on television already instead of reality TV, who or what is an "Ikea", free wifi, condoms, telekinesis, dropping back to lower weight for my squats so I can focus on form again, women...

LATELY: quantum entanglement and nonlocality... uggh.

And who let all these hipsters onto OKCupid? Seriously, there should be a filter to stop showing me girls who want a non-commitmentphobic flannel wearing PBR drinking art show attending "intellectual" to sit and listen to vinyl records with them on a perfectly good Friday night.

Fuck it, let's go ice skating, rock climbing and play paintball.

I guess I'm too practical for my own good (I thank/blame my parents). Too many "artists" on here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In the freelance world, weekends and weekdays aren't as dissimilar as in the 9-5 workday world, so Friday nights are as exciting or boring as any other night of the week.

On a busy Friday night, I'm likely at a concert, seeing a new movie, running amok, maybe skating or bowling, or just people watching in Hollywood. On a quiet Friday night, I'm cooking something new, chatting way too loud with friends on the porch, having drinks with friends or enjoying the down time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't watch much TV. Sorry, that's all you get on here...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested, intrigued, or think we'd have interesting conversations. I'd be thrilled to meet someone here who can joke about carbon bonding or use fake Mark Twain / Kurt Cobain quotes.

"Some mutha fuckas are always tryin' to ice skate uphill." -Kurt Cobain.

See? Easy.

Basically, if you've ever been told you're "too smart for your own good", we'll get along.
