My self-summary
ON HOLIDAY IN AMERICA UNTIL JANUARY

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 or a hike with only a couple of days notice to get away from the digital marketing world and/or polling data where I spend a good chunk of my work-time. When not getting lost in a story or escaping work I enjoy sharing home-cooked good food for friends and loved ones.

Being gay is only a part of who I am. I am a political junkie, tech nerd, broadway addict, singer, volunteer, and aspiring chef.
What I’m doing with my life
American expat coming to London to steal your jobs! That being said, I don't believe that "He with the most toys at the end wins." I don't keep score by the size of your bank account or the personal fame you have, but by the impact you try to leave behind with those around you be that 1 person or a billion. I'm a recovering workaholic who still works in the City, but I strive to always work to live and not live to work.
I’m really good at
Finding cheap flights, hosting friends for a meal, being the best Guncle to my 10 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 (Churchill and American politicians)
Movies: Catch Me If You Can, Auntie Mame
Broadway Shows: Next to Normal, Book of Mormon
TV Show: West Wing, Doctor Who
Music: Mostly alternative, with a lot of EDM, modern instrumental music, and a dash of musical theater.
Food: If you can find me real Mexican food in London, I'll melt in your arms.
The six things I could never do without
My Family (both blood and my family of friends )
My Passport
Intelectual Stimulation
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 London. But 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
That I'm not perfect but I'm working on it every day.
You should message me if
If you are physically attractive, mentally intense, and emotionally available.
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 to DO with your life, not just who you want to BE.
If your family is important, be it children, parents, friends, or nieces & nephews - because no man is an island.
If you can challenge me to be the best I can be while making enough space to comfort and support me when I open up about my personal misgivings.
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.
