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.
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.
Pen & Paper
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.
