My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I work as a Steadicam/Camera operator. I'm currently the single father of an 9 month old boy. I'm into heavy metal music, passionate about my work and my friends, frequent gym visitor and heavy lifter, and play video games in my down time... when my son lets me.
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).
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...

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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Gl_vIaQ3CU

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.

People (I saw someone else had this in their profile, so I decided to co-opt it):
Steve Martin
Michio Kaku
Malcolm Gladwell
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Rob Zombie
Ian Christie (showing that knowledge of metal music IS cool)
Steven Hawking
Bill Gates
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
- 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
- scotch
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, my son's sleep and eating schedule, 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, telekinesis, women...

LATELY: quantum entanglement and nonlocality... uggh.
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 reach.
