My self-summary
I've lived in Austin and New York and now here I am in LA. I'm a writer who's playful, positive, and packed full of innuendo, subtext and double (even triple) entendres. I love to laugh, enjoy thoughtful conversation, value people who question and are curious about the world around them. Ideally I'd want someone I can go out and play tennis with, then come home and play even more tennis with (WARNING: one of the previous usages of "tennis" was a euphemism). I like to think of myself as flexible and adaptable, a good listener with a profound and probing perspective on life. I write features and sketch comedy for a local live stage show - so I'm certified funny. I smile a lot. I like sharing the mirth. I promise not to hog any mirth. You will get your cut of mirth. There is plenty of Mirth on Earth. And in Perth. (Turns out I'm also the kind of guy who channels Dr Seuss in a dating profile).
What I’m doing with my life
Whatever it takes. Even a little of whatever it doesn't take.
I’m really good at
The things I love. Being supportive of the people I love. Taking criticism. Giving notes. Ping pong. Frisbee golf. Touching my toes. Spelling. Sharing. Adapting. Persevering. Listening. Giving. Kissing. Cubing vegetables and fruit. Making Israeli salad. Putting mint in my fruit salad.
The first things people usually notice about me
My displacement of the empty space that used to be in front of them.

(or some other such smart ass response)

Six things I could never do without
Nervous system
Skeletal system
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Story structure, characters, integrity, luck. Why stuff works or doesn't (on many levels). Various and sundry other Profundities.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out for a stroll. I stroll hard yo. Or listening to live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Lean over and I'll whisper it in your ear so these other fools won't hear...
You should message me if
You feel an inner urge. But not an inner urgent. That's an emergency and for that you should contact 911.
