My self-summary
Hello, hello! Welcome to my profile. Please feel free to look around. Like right there! Wow, that's a fantastic bit of information. Or this! Or that! This is very exciting.

Okay, first things first, a description of myself... As you can see above, sometimes I have an odd sense of humor. I'm never too sure if it comes across on these sites, but I hope it does. I'm a serious person at most times, but I really enjoy it when I'm able to be completely goofy with someone. I like bad jokes and puns. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I love them.

I'm a film/TV/book nerd. I'm always checking out new movies, and if you have a show suggestion to binge watch, I'll definitely give it a chance. I'm also a writer, so I can write-off a lot of this as research!

I not a huge sports fan in a general sense, but I can follow anything. I love baseball. The Yankees have been my team since 1987... which sometimes puts me at odds with my Mets rooting brother or my Boston-made friends. But we all get along.

And lets see... how about a list of random facts... everyone loves lists, right?
-cat person (nothing against dogs, dogs are cool, but cats are cooler)
-afraid of heights (you should see how I hold a railing... it protects me from enemies sneaking up on me and trying to throw me over)
-been to all 50 states (family used to travel a lot during the summers)
-dive bars are the best (Molly Malones especially... though I seem to go there less and less... am I growing up?)
-can karaoke, but need a few drinks, though that's not always a guarantee (then you'll hear "Sweet Caroline" or "Kiss the Girl" or "Rainbow Connection" in my shameless attempt at a Kermit voice)
-LA transplant... Originally from Western New York (allow me to tell you about the greatest grocery store ever... Wegmans)

Those are some random facts. And there are many more where those came from.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a writer. Most recently, I worked on a couple of children's show for the Jim Henson Company. So... if you have nieces and nephews looking to learn about the ocean or preschoolers learning about words... it's some quality television.

Writing is big part of my life. I'm constantly working on new projects. I write screenplays, spec television pilots, and a few plays. I enjoy writing all genres, from suspense to horror to sci-fi to family comedy. I've actually been working on a novel, which is a new challenge for me.
I’m really good at
I am a man of many skills... Some useful... Some not.
The first things people usually notice about me
My best bet would be my random sense of humor. And I would say that's about 50-50 "a good thing." Maybe 60-40.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a wide taste in movies. I'm probably one of the few people that has a collection that includes both: all the Muppet moves and all of David Mamet's films. I grew up on action-adventure and some sci-fi, but I watch everything under the sun (including classic dramas, 80s horror, crazy comedies, and yes, animated films... Pixar is awesome). Each year, I also make a point to watch all the Oscar movies.

As for books, Elmore Leonard has the best characters. Dennis Lehane's "Kenzie/Gennaro" series is incredible, especially the second book "Darkness, Take My Hand". David Mamet and Aaron Sorkin are my favorites when it comes to dialogue. Mark L. Danielewski's "House of Leaves" continues to mess with my head. I still have weird dreams every once in awhile, because of that book. The most important literary influence on my life is still some good ol' fashion "Calvin & Hobbes".

I'm always game for checking out a new show. That's the best part of Netflix. My favorites are 24, The West Wing, classic Simpsons, Futurama, Lost, and Fringe. I'm a big fan of JJ Abrams and Aaron Sorkin. Other shows I enjoy (past & present): Community, Friends, Scrubs, Parks & Rec, New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sherlock, and Doctor Who.

I enjoy a variety of music, but I'm horrible with names of bands and titles. My favorite is Ben Folds. Some other random groups are Mumford & Sons, Cake, and others. I like a lot of 80s rock (Springsteen, Journey, Styx, and Toto's "Africa"), because it makes for good jukebox/sing-a-long music. I listen to a lot of film scores (John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, Michael Giacchino, etc.).

For food... love a good burger, pizza, steak, and breakfast foods of all kinds. There's other stuff, of course.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Story ideas. I'm always working on something new.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about with friends, or I'm writing/taking it easy at home.
