Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I work as a Steadicam/Camera operator. I'm into heavy metal music, love my work and my friends (really, they're family), lifting heavy weights at the gym whenever possible, and I play video games in my down time.

History: born in Miami, grew up in Ft. Lauderdale (Plantation), lived in Orlando for 10 years, moved to NYC (Woodside, Queens) for 8 months then moved to LA. My first career was in computers, which seemed logical since I was building computers from 14 years old. However, hobbies don't always make great careers. Realized that working in film probably was the right thing, and best of all, VIABLE! That brings me to Lala Land. I grew up swimming a lot (living in Florida, I didn't know there were people who couldn't swim), and I played street hockey before it became a bigger thing. Never played football, much to the chagrin of the high school coaches. Instead, I did speech and debate and Model UN... yea.

I think the way most guys are into football, sports, cars, stats, etc... that's how I am with other things: technology, politics, current events, philosophy, religion, etc. Chances are, unless I was working on a job that covered "the game", I didn't see "the game". However, don't let that make you think I'm not interested in seeing the game. I enjoy the social side of it... I just don't track stats, wins, or brackets. I can definitely tell you my thoughts on the Iran nuclear treaty, the invasion of Iraq, or how I think 30 years of education decline in this country has yielded the Tea Party. I can wax techno-philosophical about why the iPhone 6S still has a base storage memory size of 16GB, or why Google and Facebook will eventually dominate Apple. I can even explain to you why I think heavy/death metal, while unnerving, is some of the most technically skilled and cutting edge music around today, or how Rachmaninoff has more in common with Dying Fetus than Nicky Minaj. Mostly, I'm curious to know what you think about any of that stuff, or something you're into that I may know nothing about. Just hope you're into SOMETHING.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in the film industry, which means days I'm working, I'm not doing much else; days I'm off, I'm relaxing, networking, running errands or having fun. Add on top of that my son, and it's pretty awesome. He's at the age where I can take him swimming (short period of time) or hiking (note to self: buy sweet hiking backpack for shlepping my boy up some sweet hills). Also, I'm seriously considering writing an app just for taking selfie pics while doing yoga poses. If prevalence of those photos on OKC is an indicator, it'd be pretty popular.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job, reminding you who that actor or movie you're thinking of is, coming up with robust analogies for various life situations, explaining some theoretical physics, discussing current events, listening to what you have to say. Most importantly, if you're having trouble with the technology in your life, I can probably fix it for you in a way that makes you furious it was "that easy".

Music: 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, Vital Remains, Cannibal Corpse, Skinless, Decapitated, Dying Fetus... and so on... but for the most part, I'm a death metal fanatic. To me, heavy/death metal is the most complex and fascinating form of music today. Sure, some of it sounds like a dog barking in a megaphone, but some of the bands out there are truly talented, gifted artists.

Despite loving death metal, I can also laugh at Gaahl from Gorgoroth in this interview:

Food: I like it all, am NOT a picky eater. I definitely like spicy, but more as a flavor thing than a "pain food" thing.

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:

- smartphone (you have a computer faster than most computers 15 years ago in your pocket that you can use to tap into the wealth of human knowledge or communicate with anyone digitally connected... that's humanity changing)

- 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. So much of our headspace is influenced by our body chemistry, and I've simply recognized that working out, lifting weights, exercising benefits me in so many ways I might never notice unless I skipped it.

- Work. I think my lazy days are over. If I don't work, I get squirrelly and cabin fever. Few things can beat a full day's work.

- My music. Sorry, it's part of my lifeblood now.

- Scotch.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My job, bitcoin, new potential business ventures, Tesla's line of cars and how to afford a Model III when launched, wireless radio frequencies, effective management, the names of my coworkers, grocery shopping, new books to read, what movies I've missed seeing recently and should rent, investing, being completely debt free by the end of 2016, why aircraft still have the same design for over a century, reddit, if my son will ever learn to drive a car or self-driving vehicles will be the norm, TV show ideas, home automation, should I swap the batteries in my smoke detector?

LATELY: how to be more like Bill Murray?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have no typical Friday nights. Most of the time, I don't know what day of the week it currently is...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I may have been dragged to a NKOTB concern when I was little... also, I'm not an atheist (although after reading this, that's what you may think), I just no longer hold an opinion on the spiritual questions of the universe. I don't understand why I need to have a strong opinion on the subject of god when there are so many tangible or observable mysteries in the universe that are within our discovery. Also, I am excited for Rock Band 4, and I will play it ad nauseum.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you've ever been told you're "too smart for your own good", we'll get along. Please note: if you drive a Prius, I've probably already drawn a number of conclusions on you. You hate the physical act of driving, to start...

NOTE: I buried this at the bottom hopefully for good effect. Yes, I have a son. He's 1 year old. I have sole physical custody, which means he lives with me, he sleeps a room away from me, and I love him dearly. I'm not looking for "a new mommy" to take care of my boy. I'm a pro at caring for my little wrecking ball, and I love it. Chances are, if we meet up, we can discuss him, but you probably won't meet him for a while? I'm happy to meet, talk with new people, meet up for dinner or drinks, but possible dating is between you and I. He'll be at home, probably watching Netflix or eating a remote control.

If you DON'T go apeshit over people mistakenly mixing up "their", "they're" and "there" OR "your" and "you're". We're living in a post-autocorrect dystopian hell of communication, but if we were talking in person, I'm sure you'd say what you meant and I wouldn't be hung up on swapped letters.
