My self-summary
I'm a divorcé giving this thing a shot. Pretty busy with work and single fatherhood, but understanding that I've got needs, dammit. I do. And so, here I am, posting pictures and writing about myself.

The truth is I love to date. I enjoy gaining new experiences however awkward and weird they may be. There's adventure and mystery to it. Oh - wait - did you just drool? Well, I just spilled soup all over my pants. It's all fine, really. Here's a breath mint. We'll live.

So, yes, I want to have fun, and if I meet someone especially cool then, all the better.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a child/family psychotherapist. I work at a fantastic outpatient clinic in Philadelphia, and thoroughly enjoy the work. It's rewarding and stimulating in many various ways. The level of unpredictability at the start of any session is truly exciting.

3-4 days out of the week, I spend time with my daughter. She's the best! Especially, if you're into insanely cute and freaking awesome people that are six years old and determined to take over the world with a large army of stuffed animals.

I also sing, play guitar, and write songs in a band. We're becoming more active and finishing up our first record - very excited about that!

Oh and I'm on this thing called Okcupid, now. Not weird at all!
I’m really good at
Ping Pong
Explaining my aversion of hidden raisins
Impersonating Charlton Heston
Withstanding extra spicy foods
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe my hair, and my dimples. These things have been mentioned to me before. Oh and random drunk people on the street frequently tell me that I look like Matt Damon or Mark Wahlberg, and then they just wander off into oncoming traffic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm currently having to study for a licensure exam - kinda struggling to fit in fiction, right now, but some of my favorites are Dashiell Hammett, Kingsley Amis, Raymond Carver, and Muriel Spark. I do enjoy graphic novels, as well, and have been making time to read a great one called "Saga."

Alfred Hitchcock slays me. Same goes for Kurosawa and there are a bunch of French guys from the 60's that did some bizarre stuff that's still fresh every time I check it out. International movies probably make up the majority of my favorites. However, with all that said, going to the movies for a blockbuster and a huge bag of popcorn is a cherished pastime. Give me the 3-D glasses!
I will refuse The Smurfs.

Really enjoyed The Night of - loved John Turturro's performance. Other shows: Halt and Catch Fire, The Walking Dead, The Wire, Better Call Saul. I am a sucker for Friday Night Lights, I have to admit.

Music is something I used to be super snobby about in my twenties, but then I developed enough guilty pleasures to break it. Best thing that could have happened to me. All thanks to Mozart (I can't believe I said it!)
No. Not true.
Curtis Mayfield is my god. I'll just say that.

I often crave Santucci's pizza and have a hard time turning down good Indian and Vietnamese.
The six things I could never do without
My sanity
My toaster oven
A freaking umbrella that actually works
My Ray Bans
My Sodastream
Chocolate chips for my daughter's Sunday morning pancakes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the songs "Inna Gada Davida" and "Tales of Brave Ulysses" pop into my head about every other day, converge, and disorient me for about five minutes at a time. It's been happening for the last fifteen years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying the company of friends at Fountain Porter. Possibly, seeing a show at Johnny Brenda's.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sade changed my life.

Seriously.
You should message me if
Should's are bad news, people.
