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

Seriously I'm known as solid, funny, creative... The 'go to' guy.

I'd like to be outta this site and in a long term relationship. Good luck to me. So see what you think... Hopefully, you don't live in Asia. I get those messages.

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

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

I'm funny at times... In preproduction on a socio-political comedy series for YouTube soon (in late March now), 'AMERICAN SOSH: Badass Sociology /Mad Dope / Comedy ...]

At USC and UCLA, I studied cinema arts, sociology, social policy... Taught SOSH at Cal State University. So I know some stuff that explains our world. Also have 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 local music venues like McCabes for music. Or comedy venues like Hermosa's Comedy & Magic Club.

I have an 18-year-old daughter, a clarinetist who lives with her mother in Santa Monica. Daughter has her own life, just as 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 wait, 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... I take credit for getting her into music!

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 85-foot fishing boat is cleaner.

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 politicized right-wing false prophet charlatans in America's religion cottage industry. I'm a fan of Pope Francis. Yoga is cool, but 'downward dog' almost tore my achilles. Believe in Karma, so I do the right thing...

Activities? 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 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 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.

As a 'homebody with options', I'll often write. Now I have writing and production responsibilities for a video series on YouTube. Keeps me slammed. Note, I rarely go out. So if you can help with production or be supportive, that would be cool...

I look like Harrison Ford from a few years ago. Like from Return of the Jedi. Well, I am the 'Indiana Jones of digital'... And 'Professor Digital'!

Thank you for reading... Best of luck whether we reach a conversation or not.
