My self-summary
Okay, you landed here. Awesome!

I'm known as solid, funny, creative... The 'go to' guy. Help, emergencies, etc.!

I'd like to be outta this site and in a long term relationship. Good luck to me. So see what you think...

Background: I've been a Creative Director or webguru (co-led the team that put together I have a geek streak in information technology, but am always a writer.

I play guitar, have decent vocal chops, and a good sense of rhythm. Which is helpful in other areas :-)

Some folks think I'm funny... Gonna be doing socio-political comedy via YouTube channel soon (end of Sept. now). Title of show to begin shooting in early October is 'AMERICAN SOSH 101: Everything is Sociological'. I still miss Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, George Carlin, and Bernie Mac.

At USC and UCLA, I studied cinema (arts), sociology, social policy... Taught SOSH at Cal State University. So I'm knowledgeable about some stuff, including the subject matter of four (4) doctoral dissertations that I ghostwrote for practicing clinical psychologists. Note -- I was not a patient :-) No barter. But many psychologists just cannot write...

So I have stocks of useless info that I won't bore you with.

Thankfully, I tend to know when to lead and when to follow...

My parents were married for 30 years, until my father died. I'm a relationship person, not a dater.

I like local travel and getaways (e.g. Catalina Island) Hole-in-the-wall restaurants can be cool. Hollywood Bowl and McCabes for music. Just saw old folkie Tom Rush.

I have an 18-year-old daughter, a clarinetist who lives with her mother in Santa Monica. Daughter has her own life :-) I did when I was a teen. My mother warned me, or hexed me. 'Just wait, you'll have a kid who is just like you...' But I was more reasonable... Heard from numerous sources that 17-18 is a tough age for girls. Must it be tough on me? :-)

She now attends Herb Alpert School of Music at UCLA... Yay!

So it would be great if you have a nurturing streak wider than dental floss. The daughter doesn't need it. I do!

While I would rather not date Dr. Doolittle, I can be the dog and cat whisperer. Conflicted?

Who am I looking for? Bright, funny, attractive, wise, communicative, arty, light baggage... College educated.

If you're arty, but not nuts, that would be a plus :-)

Please, no 'I want to travel the world' women.. Seriously, I do travel, but not in retirement mode. I will not go on a filthy cruise ship. An 80-foot fishing boat is cleaner :-)

No Trump supporters... GOPers, please move on! (Note, I have some of the 'best words')

I'm not on the God squad! However, unlike Bill Maher, I recognize the need for 'God' on this planet for basic morals/ethics that are true to the Bible and not from our amoral right-wing tribes of bigoted hater Christians (e.g. Pat Robertson, Huckabee, and other false prophet charlatans in the religion business).

What do I like to do? Riding bikes, beach volleyball (I used to be AAA good...), plays, movies, museums and art galleries... I can cook, but would prefer to share chef duties.

I'm open to some adventure, but I'm not skydiving or rock-climbing. Being athletic is a good thing -- I did a 30-mile trail ride in the mountainous interior of Catalina Island in last year. I'm a Catalina Conservancy member.

Just about whatever you have going on... I will be supportive. In general, I will have your back.

If you smoke weed, I'm okay with that. Occasionally, I'll take a couple of hits. But no opioids or other hard drugs. I drink minimally.

As a 'homebody with options', I'll often write or play my acoustic guitar. Or write... I look like my pics, which are fairly recent. Physically, everything works... :-)

Thank you for reading...
