My self-summary
I'm never too sure how to start these bios, so I guess I'll just go with "Welcome!" Yep, that seems like a good place to start.

I'm a film and TV nerd. If you have a good movie or show to recommend, there's a good shot I'll give it a chance. I have what could be considered a nerdy sense of humor. I'm always tossing out a pun or an absurd turn of phrase. I enjoy my random one-liners. As a result, I tend to gravitate towards women that aren't afraid to be goofy from time to time. I've found that humor is very important in a relationship.

I'm a writer, and I enjoy working in all genres from suspense to sci-fi to comedy to family friendly stories. I also write for a children's show at The Jim Henson Company.

I'm originally from a small town in Western New York, though I've been in LA for over 12 years.

Well, that is me in a nutshell. There is more. There always is. Hopefully, I meet someone awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
I work on a children's show for the Jim Henson Company, which has been an absolute thrill.

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.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to be a music person... but that was a long time ago. I can sing, but the odds of you hearing me sing for real are slim. Unless I'm doing a Kermit voice and singing "Rainbow Connection"... that has happened twice.
