My self-summary
Always looking for people to photograph. ๐Ÿ“ธ

Not here for hookups. Looking for friends, especially flirty ones. I'm an incorrigible flirt, so incorrige me! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

I am or have been a photographer, event manager and promoter, filmmaker, writer, financial professional, salesman, jack-of-all-trades, and much more. Specialization is for insects. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

And also, poor. ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Cancer survivor. ๐Ÿฅ I have learned that living is pretty damned awesome, and sometimes you have to laugh just to keep from crying. ๐Ÿ˜

The biggest geek you'll ever meet. ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป

I have a lot of friends. I mean, a LOT of friends. I love them... They've gotten me through some tough times. ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ

I have a partner in an open relationship. I can date if I choose. We joke that, were we to conjugate our partnership: We have an open relationship, She is polyamorous, I am just greedy. ๐Ÿ˜ˆโค๏ธ

A student of the universe. ๐Ÿ“–

I like cheese. ๐Ÿง€

Ask me anything.๐Ÿ˜Ž

What Iโ€™m doing with my life
Living it, as much as I can.

Having determined that it's me against the world, I am plotting my attack...

I guess I'm figuring out what I'm doing with my life. I have the funny feeling that I'll be doing that until the day I die.

On a more concrete level, I cleverly disguise myself as a normal person, I work on my next filmmaking or writing project, and updating Facebook. I also volunteer for a non-profit regional Sci-Fi Conference, and I help out with a number of other SF cons and events (please see the above note about my being "geeky").

Also working on being the best me I can be. I'm getting there.
Iโ€™m really good at
All sorts of things. Try me.

Oh, you'd like more detail? OK... I'm a fine writer, speaker, and actor, and I seem to be very adept at making friends (I joke that "Women love me, and men all want to be my friend!" ๐Ÿ˜‰). I'm also quite funny (or at least I'll assume that everyone else is laughing WITH me, not AT me!).
The first things people usually notice about me
Hey, I'm in shape! ROUND is a shape! *shrug* But I'm still pretty good looking despite that... I think.

I've been told that my eyes, my smile, and my voice are all pretty distinctive (in a good way). I tend to be one of those people who other people gather around at parties... I have NO idea how or why this happens.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a huge fan of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. As I mentioned above, I volunteer for a sci-fi con here in the Philly area, PHILCON. I'm pretty much a big geek... but one with pretty good social skills (Um... I think...)

I write, I'm a filmmaker, and I love a good conversation. I also spend way too much time tooling around the internet, and updating my Facebook page. I'm also a hobby gamer... D&D, miniature gaming, Carcassone, Settlers of Catan ("Do you have wood for sheep?"), and lots of other games.

Among my favorite books are "Lord Of The Rings", "The Prophet" by Gibran, "Stranger In A Strange Land", the "Sandman" series by Neil Gaiman, Harry Potter, A Song of Ice and Fire, and most of Shakespeare's works. Authors I enjoy include Asimov, Bradbury, Gaiman (who I personally think is the finest writer alive today), GRRM, Ellison, Heinlein, David Gerrold, Cory Doctorow, Charles Stross, John Scalzi, Peter David, Keith DiCandido, and a whole lot of others... but it's hard to find time to read these days.

Movies I enjoy are the Star Wars films, Blade Runner, Lord Of The Rings, Serenity, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Ray Harryhausen films, Universal Monsters, Marvel Comics films, Casablanca (probably the finest film ever made), PIXAR films, and many, many other movies. I'm a bit of a film buff.

TV shows I watch are Mythbusters, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, pretty much ANY Star Trek show (especially original series), Agents of Shield, Game of Thrones, Westworld, and most of the line-up on the various versions of the Discovery Channel and History Channel, with a smattering of the Sci-Fi Channel thrown in.

Music... I'm into most everything. I'm especially fond of classic rock and 80's new wave and 80's retro. I *REALLY* like celtic music.

As for food... well, is it bad for me? Then I probably like it. (Hey... I need to keep my girlish figure...) ๐Ÿ˜
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order (except the first one);

My Girlfriend.

Internet access, and my computer.

Friends and Family.

My mental faculties.

Sex. Or at least Flirting.

Laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything I can... The universe is my classroom.

I am, however a bit ADD, so... Oh, look! A squirrel!
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something... the "what" varies from week to week!

Some things include:

Watching something interesting on TV... preferably with friends.

Hanging out with friends.

Seeing a movie.

Going out on a date.

Or perhaps I'll be at a con. I go to Balticon (Memorial Day Weekend), Wicked Faire (February), Wizard World Philly (May/ June), Pi-Con (August), Arisia (January), Philcon (November... this one's my home-town con), and others. I'm often asked to be a speaker or panelist at them. They're sort of my little vacations from reality. *grin*

Or, I might just be sitting at home for a quiet night in.
The most private thing Iโ€™m willing to admit
Private? On Teh Intartubes? You keep using that word... I don't think it means what you think it means...

I have a Facebook page, like everyone else. If you have one and seem like cool people, and you ask, I may well friend you. (Of course, most my postings are public, so you can read it without my "friending" you.)
You should message me if
You think that I might, by chance, be interesting. And you're interesting too. And you aren't looking for anything serious at this point. But I like people, and I like making new friends, and we'll see what happens.

While I'm not listed here as Kinky, or Pagan, or 420, that doesn't mean I'm not Kink-friendly, or Pagan-friendly, or 420 friendly. I'm pretty much just friendly! So please get in touch!

If you like SF/Fantasy, and other geeky things, then DEFINITELY get in touch! We'll probably get along wonderfully!
