My self-summary
I'm a Los Angeles native.

I've got a very close-knit circle of friends that I've known for most of my life, but I love meeting new people.

That said, I'm looking for dates with the potential for something long-term.

I'm a music nerd.

I can keep calm in a crisis.

I've got bad posture.

I can play the first side of Bjork's Homogenic on the piano.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working as an office manager/personal assistant. I've been working for the same crazy people for 16 years; entertaining as they are, I'm ready to move on. So, I went to grad school and earned a masters in psychology; now I'm working on getting my hours to become a licensed therapist. I'd like to eventually open a private practice, and work with LGBT youth and their families.
I’m really good at
cooking. I started out totally amateurish and I've gotten pretty good. I'm not a vegetarian (anymore), but I usually stick to vegetarian fare when I'm doing the cooking. But if you wanna grill me a steak, I'll eat it!

I'm also pretty good around a piano keyboard.
The first things people usually notice about me
my height. I'm usually always the tallest person in the room. After that... my smile? my eyes? my long monkey arms?

I get a lot of comparisons to Dave Grohl. Trying to figure out how to use that to my advantage....

Six things I could never do without
Common sense
I spend a lot of time thinking about
songs I wish I had written.
On a typical Friday night I am
LA is full of great places to check out and I try to take advantage of that as often as I can, though I love a having a night in as well. Love going to plays, concerts, museums, new restaurants and bars. I'm a member at Cinefamily, so I'm there quite a bit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cry at the rejection scene in Fiddler on the Roof every time.

I looked at your list of favorite music before anything else on your profile.
You should message me if
You scan movie credits to find out the name of that one song you loved.

You like to have singalongs in the car.

You think Everything Is Terrible is hilarious.

You're looking for a relationship with a well-rounded guy.

You're over the age of 28.

You love living in Los Angeles and don't plan on moving anytime soon.

Or just message me because.

Not being allergic to cats would be a good thing.
The two of us
