My self-summary
I’m a passionate, intelligent guy who earns a living as a production illustrator for movies and television. I come from a small town in Rhode Island and have spent a lot of time in Connecticut. I got my BFA in Boston (New England School of Art and Design, Emerson and The Massachusetts College of Art). Go Sox!! I came to Los Angeles to get involved in the movie business, as I have a habit of writing screenplays and making short films.

My friends would describe me as both intense and silly. I’m introspective, always reaching for a deeper understanding of the world and my place in it. I'm also a romantic at heart, and I genuinely treat other people the way I would like to be treated.

I adore animals of every stripe and they are drawn to me as well. My Mom loves to tell the story of the morning she woke up to five year old me out on the back porch at sunrise with as many bowls, cups and saucers I could find, ALL the neighborhood's cats and the last of our milk.
My last pet was a beautiful budgie who kept me company for more than ten years. I can’t keep something in a cage so he flew all around and sat on my shoulder at my drafting table for most of his life.

I’m looking for a friend and lover. Someone bright and comfortable with herself. Someone to pal around with, discuss the crazy world we share and most importantly, laugh with. Someone equally passionate and physical. I stay in shape, like to run and hike, and do so as much as time allows.

I’m not conventional. I’m a progressive liberal, with a deep curiosity about almost all things (except country western celebrities and reality TV!). I recognize that might narrow the focus uncomfortably, but I cook so hopefully now I’m back in the black :).

I like nights out at nice restaurants. Candlelight. Wine. Or I like beer and bowling, shooting pool, comedy clubs. I love to dance but hate the club scene. Too damn crowded.

I am financially responsible and just had my best year ever, but I do prioritize personal creative goals and quality of life over material gain.

I have great friends and like to host game nights and dinner parties. I’m fairly well read and very studied at storytelling itself. If you like a good story, we might really hit it off!

Oh, and I want to take swing dance and salsa classes. Who's in?

And then I'm completely floored by this.
And this.
Might have to sit through damnable commercials but they're worth it.

And then I am a thinkin', who wants to put on some candles and dance around our apartment to this?

And I have to say OKC has my personality aspects fairly wrong with their algorithms. A little bit silly.

Lastly, it seems some of you question the veracity of my profile, but I assure you I am true. Big things come in small packages and all that.

I don't have any shirtless pics to share.. but I have over three hundred photo series of me without socks. Tends to be less of a call for those.
What I’m doing with my life
I am ambitious and determined. I've always wanted to be a director of films I write. Tough business. When I'm not pursuing that... well, I'm always pursuing that. :)
I’m really good at
Jack of all trades, here. Master of only a few. I give great backrubs and good advice. I like to give gifts. I've been told I sing a mean karaoke but if we take a cross country car trip, remember you were warned. I love to kiss.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is that I hail from Britain, which I do not. People think I'm from across the pond. Know me for a short while and you'll learn I am honest and very considerate. I truly believe in patience and keeping my word and that whole golden rule thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, let's get the bad out of the way first. My favorite food is fried chicken. I am a carnivore. But I have it all under control :) I love all kinds of books but not all authors. I just went through a Cormac McCarthy phase. I love books about filmmaking and Hollywood history. I haven't LOVED a film I've seen in a few years. My favorite film is Jaws. My taste in music is wildly varied, from Harry James to The Proclaimers, from Appalachian folk music to The Squirrel Nut Zippers.

And I have to say, someone just turned me on to Neko Case and The Hayden Triplets. I am hooked!
Six things I could never do without
I can't answer this. Tried several times.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Screenplays I'm writing. This happens to include every subject under the sun.

Right now it's a haunted house story like no one has EVER seen.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out having dinner and drinks with good friends OR watching a movie all comfy, comfy. I like to host game nights with a tight group of close friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have flaws, drawbacks, what-have-you, but none are major. The good surprises, though, those are major.
You should message me if
If you like to laugh. If you like to explore ideas. If you are passionate and physical. If you're looking to build a bond and a future.
The two of us
