My self-summary
This one goes out all the brainy lovers out there in radio land... (If you're not in a nerdy mood please skip the following). The science of why online dating kind of sucks/is kind of amazing:

Looking for someone interesting and interested. Enthusiastic even? We live in a first world nation with clean water and amazing toilet paper. Let's get pumped up. If you've been to Bolivia, you know what I'm talking about.

There's a lot out there and adventure in the blood is a good thing. Interested in going to Burma, or at least this Burmese restaurant I keep hearing about in E. Los Angeles?

I like ideas. Maybe you have some we can talk about. And if one of your ideas involves the best ice cream in LA, if not the world...get yourself to Scoops pronto. CuminOrangeChocolate, I mean the man is an ice cream genius.

Bottom line: if you're smart, are doing (or really want to do) something extraordinary with your time here and are honestly funny, let's talk. Are you teaching lemurs to solve quadratic equations in the name of furthering social justice? I'm down to help. You feel like helping me transform the way kids eat? Cool.
What I’m doing with my life
Planning a return to Africa. (Not permanently, just for another adventure.) Running a small medical group, treating the sick, stopping diabetes in its tracks. Punching boredom in the face with the glove of awesomeness.
I’m really good at
building an extension on the garage, grilling a tasty chop, starting a fire with my hands, paying (partially) for grad school as a massage therapist back in the day (the clinical kind, not the naughty kind.) Basically, I'm pretty good with my hands.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Namesake, Sedaris, the russians, Lonely Planet, wonky technical stuff, any reasonable magazine within reach-Wired, Harper's, and when they create a 25 hour day, I'll get back to the Economist and the New Yorker.

This American Life. Radiolab. Dinner Party.
Music is broad. But I'm just going to go ahead and say it. If the only thing you love involves banjos, this might be a sticking point. I'm down for some good banjo, but in the hands of Mumford, or is it one of his alleged sons... (It's a mandolin you say? Sorry, I've already changed the station). When did we forget everything our godfather JB taught us?

Snatch, Ken Burns, Archer.
30 Rock, TED Talks, a friend got me into Game of Thrones- I got through most of it. The League - it's childish. I like it. Overall, not much TV in my life.
Except this whole House of Cards thing. Have you heard of it? I hear it's going to be big one day.
Six things I could never do without
Music- and trying to recreate it poorly on the guitar. We're getting the band back together (someday).

Laughter- improv makes me laugh. (I rarely perform, I won't improv at you, I promise).

Freedom- a credit card swipe and you're on another continent, and the other kind of freedom that let's you think for yourself.

Smart Talk- using brain = sexy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
when I will take kiteboarding lessons.
The next steps to take to fix the food of LAUSD kids.
Bulldogs and boxers jumping on trampolines.
What my editor is going to want to change on my latest draft. Cutting an album just for fun and checking it off of the bucket list.
On a typical Friday night I am
finishing a book I'm writing, at the gym, unwinding from a long week, or catching up with friends and taking in all LA has to offer. (Well not all of it, that's a bit pretentious sounding, isn't it?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I thought Lou Ferrigno was named Louf Errigno... He looked like someone that could be named Louf. I was younger then.
You should message me if
you know the earth is smaller than the sun. Much smaller. You want to be like Charles and Ray Eames (but more outdoorsy), or Bonnie and Clyde (but less murdery), or Barack and Michelle (but only the awesome parts), you know, like root beer floats and bacon cheese burgers, they are great on their own and don't need anyone, but together, holy cow, they are unstoppable. (I eat a lot of vegetables, don't worry)
The two of us
