My self-summary
I'm a late-forties gay male in downtown Toronto, working in media
and writing for a living. (Yes, it can be done!) I'm partnered with
OKC member chris_writes...he's poly, I'm not. To
quote Facebook, it's complicated.

I am creative, curious, and thoughtful.
What I’m doing with my life
Besides my day job, I have been writing for theatre, film, television, radio and other media for more than twenty years. I like horror movies. Festival and independent films. Video and computer games. World events. Theatre. Arts and culture. Certain obsession-worthy television programs.
I’m really good at
Making things, asking questions, giving opinions, shutting up and listening, helping people, teaching people, standing up for what's right.
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses. My tattoo. My handknit socks.

Six things I could never do without
Friends, food, music, lively conversation, solitude, the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to get out of this mess we're in.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from the five previous days.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cannot drive vehicles in videogames. Seriously, I crashed my horse in Red Dead Redemption. My *horse*.
You should message me if
you think we should have some fun together.
