Hi there! My name's Will and I'm from Manville, NJ. People tend to describe me as a nerd, a hopeless romantic, a nice guy, and a gentleman. I try my hardest to be the last two, but the first two seem to come to me almost naturally. Between video games, my books, the shows I watch, and the renaissance faires and conventions I attend (and many times act in, as well), my nerd colors really seem to shine at any given moment. I suppose, on here, I'm looking for a guy who can be a geek with me. I like the idea of going out to dinner and a movie, but I can have just as much fun staying in and watching god-awful movies with someone special. It's all a matter of the company I keep ;)
I tend to summarize myself a whole lot better when I'm actually chatting with someone. If you like what you read here, why not message me? I'm always up for making a new friend and seeing where it leads.
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I'll admit, I'm between official jobs currently, though I make a bit of money doing odds and ends for a friend's heart patient parents. I've done everything from mowing lawns and shoveling snow to repairing stone steps, plumbing, and electrical work. Money, food, and the knowledge that I'm doing good work for loved ones... It's a perfect way to spend a week between applications and interviews.
I'm also an amateur actor (voice and stage) and stuntman, having been a student of martial arts and fight choreography for 10 and 8 years respectively. I've also just celebrated my first year doing burlesque with two incredibly awesome troupes, so hoping to keep going strong with that.
I’m really good at
Singing and Writing. Those seem to be my two cardinal talents. I
love to sing, whether it's just rocking out in the shower, humming
along while I write, or actually performing onstage or at faire. I
love it! I've also been writing since around 7th grade, and I
certainly hope that I've much improved since then! I like to write
fantasy, sci-fi, romance... I regularly compete in NaNoWriMo
(National Novel Writing Month) every November, where it's a race
against time to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Admittedly, I'm also
guilty of writing fanfiction, so sue me. In addition to the writing
aspect, I'm also good at creating characters and personas for when
I go to renaissance faires or conventions. I'll warn you now, I'm a
The first things people usually notice about me
My height seems to attract a bit of attention, but also the fact
that I actually hold doors open for people. It always brightens my
day to hear a thank you :)
Also, people notice that I blush a lot, and very easily.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Harry Potter Series (books 3, 6, and 7 are my
favorites), The Vampire Chronicles (Book V: Memnoch the Devil is my
favorite), A Christmas Carol (the only one by Dickens I DO like),
The Kite Runner, The Iliad and The Odyssey, The Once and Future
King, and a lot more. I love to read.
Movies: The Batman series (minus Batman & Robin, which just
never happened), Chris Nolan's Batman series, Clue (my favorite
movie!), Star Trek TNG movies (except the first one, Generations),
Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog, The Producers, Phantom of the
Opera, Star Wars (the original trilogy), Serenity, and a lot more.
I like movies, too.
TV Shows (since it seemed rather apparent): CSI & CSI: NY (I
only watch CSI: Miami for Ryan Wolfe), Whose Line Is It Anyway?,
Star Trek TNG, DS9, and Voyager, Firefly, Family Guy, Glee, Doctor
Who, and a lot more. I don't watch a whole lot of TV, despite what
this may show, but I do enjoy it oh so much.
Music: A VERY eclectic taste... You'll find, in my playlist: Tony
Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke,
showtunes, Lady Gaga, The Living End, Sum-41, The All-American
Rejects, Panic! at the Disco, Britney Spears, The Charlie Daniels
Band, Iron & Wine, Bo Burnham, Big Time Rush, Nobuo Uematsu,
Beethoven, Carmen, and, again, so much more. I love music.
Food: I'm an Italian boy, so pasta is always big for me, as is
pizza. I'm also no stranger to chinese take-out and sushi, mexican
and cuban food, and of course, good ole american "cuisine" of
cheeseburgers and fries. Honestly, I'll try almost anything once.
The six things I could never do without
-Renaissance Faires, Conventions, pretty much any bit gathering of geeks.
-Take-out, be it pizza, chinese, or whatever. It's a nice treat.
-My iPad, with all my creative ideas, musings, and whatnot.
-Musical theatre, with which I serenade my fans during my shower concerts. (Totally guilty of singing in the shower, as I mentioned)
-A vest. I love vests.
-Love, be it familial, platonic, or romantic... I couldn't live without the people I love.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future. I constantly think about where I'm going to be, what I'm
going to be, who's going to come into my life, who may leave, who
I'm going to wind up with and, hopefully, raise kids with. I'm a
dreamer even though I try to root myself in the now. There are
times when I can't help but let my mind wander as to what may be in
store for me.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with friends for a movie night, playing video games,
walking around Rutgers University in New Brunswick... I have a
pretty solid circle of friends. Other than that, I might also be at
a rehearsal if I were in a show at the time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
ET freaked me out as a kid, and still kinda does. Enough said.
You should message me if
I strike you as someone you want to learn more about! I'm always on
the lookout for new friends to chat with and, who knows, you may
just strike me as someone I wish to know a little better. ;)
Besides, I make it a point to respond back to anyone who messages
