My self-summary
I am here to find someone to have fun with primarily. I'm a man of many interests and a willingness to go out and take what I want from life! I am looking for the kind of girl who will come with me into the unknown head on and come out laughing on the other end.

I think I'm in the stage of my life where all the great things start falling into place... That's a strange and oddly welcomed feeling after coming up from virtually nothing.

I have been to over 32 states in the US, mostly when I was younger, I want to hit the rest of the 18, I want to also focus on getting out of the country a bit more.

I write, I work in VFX (Features, TV, Commercials.). I love the creative side of my job and am working at a great company. I want to start up photography more seriously and am saving to do that. Outside of that I read and am writing a novel.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently producing commercials and feature work for Wolf and Crow., if you want to check out what I do look at our show reel here (www.wolfandcrow.tv) it's well put together by a talented group of interesting people.

Beyond that i'm writing a book, one of those proper kinds about a possible future based on some interviews and journals regarding the singularity (AI & Possible immortality). I've got about 30 other ideas rattling on up here. Some better than others but all of them fun. I definitely am good at enjoying what may come and am doing that as well.
I’m really good at
Seeing both sides, and keeping an open mind. I like to think everyone is equal, and in some way are good people. So in turn I do my best to exemplify that, I am totally the walk the granny across the street type of guy.

I like telling stories! I hope to get better at my writing, and to continue to improve my list of books read. I am in no way "Good" with photography yet, but it won't stop me from trying to get better at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
Being 6'5" gives you a unique perspective about how people react to you. I would say the first thing I notice about other people is they tend to look up when they meet me so I guess that would be what I have observed about others observing me.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What my next move in my life will be and weighing the options. I have a list of very specific and lofty goals which I am driven to achieve.

I think about the state of our world quite a bit, everything from local restaurants opening up to the reading up on Syria / Ukraine and the Global Economy (OPEC Oil shite). I think it's healthy to have a big list of interests and to have the ability to be interested by new things all the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately this has varied every Friday, it's heavily dependent on who I am with. Either with friends at a bbq, out by the pier / ocean with work friends / clients, going to an art gallery downtown, grabbing drinks in Hollywood. The city is big so typical is rare.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to weigh 295 pounds, lost 95 of that and have kept it that way for over a year now. Working on myself has been a challenge and I have enjoyed it.
