My self-summary
I am a lover of stories, be they in books, movies, a stage, tv, video games, people, marketing, or different cultures. Getting lost in stories helps me explore worlds that are hard to reach by plane.

Speaking of planes, I have been known to pick up and go on a trip on another continent with only a couple of days notice to get away from the digital marketing world I work in.

If I wasn't working in digital marketing I'd probably be a world-travelling masseuse & baker of chocolate chip cookies.

When not getting lost in a story or escaping work I enjoy sharing home-cooked good food for friends and loved ones, devouring political or tech news, taking in a broadway show or singing in a local chorus of open-mic night.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a recovering workaholic who JUST moved to NYC after living in London - striving to work to live and not live to work.
I’m really good at
Finding cheap flights, hosting friends for a meal, being the best Gay Uncle to my 10 (soon 11) nieces & nephews, and baking chocolate chip cookies that will make you doubt your mother's baking ability.
The first things people usually notice about me
My ability to connect with people and my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are far too many to choose from and I'm not a fan of reading through lists that are too long so I shall pick only a couple.

Currently Reading: Famous Speeches of Churchill and American leaders
Movies: Auntie Mame
Broadway Shows: Next to Normal, Book of Mormon, Dear Evan Hansen
TV Show: West Wing, Doctor Who
Music: Spotify's recommended playlists include Brain Food, Acutsic EDM, Broadway remixs, and a dash of Euro's Tp 40.
The six things I could never do without
My Family and Family of Friends
My Passport
Intelectual Conversation
Books
Pen & Paper
The Internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can leave the world a better place than I found it, even in small simple ways like providing a meal for someone in need.
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking to explore NYC via random pub events and friends. Depending on how intense my week has been I may relax by curling up with some tea and a book or have hopped on a cheap flight to the continent to visit friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have 11 nieces & nephews so I'm not entirely sure I want kids of my own. Nothing definitive at all (and this is relatively new for me) but, probably the most private thing on my mind these days.
You should message me if
If you are comfortable with finding a cheap flight and taking off on a trip that weekend.
If you are confident and comfortable with what you want you have now and not only with what you are working towards.
If your family is important, be it children, parents, friends, or nieces & nephews - because no man is an island.
If you think you can give a better massage than I can! (many have tried, only my married straight friend has succeeded).
If you've ever been an expat and understand the wonders and frustrations that that entails.
