First, my Trump campaign inspired profile Preface:
I'm worth $9 billion. I have my own cruise ship that I live on. I drive a Ferrari. I've produced 8 feature motion pictures. Everyone loves me. I never pay taxes. I tell the truth... My 'emails' (email is plural) are via Gmail (true).
Seriously I'm known as solid, funny, creative... The 'go to' guy. Help in 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 web guru (co-led the team that put together www.hulu.com). 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 in other areas :-) Unlike Trump, I have big hands.
I'm funny... Gonna be doing socio-political comedy series on YouTube channel soon (late-Nov. now). Title is 'AMERICAN SOSH: News // Sociology // Commentary.
At USC and UCLA, I studied cinema (arts), sociology, social policy... Taught SOSH at Cal State University. So I'm knowledgeable about some stuff...
Also 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 local music venues like McCabes for music.
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... Yay! 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.
Please -- no Trump supporters or GOPers (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 politicized right-wing tribes 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 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.
As a 'homebody with options', I'll often write or play my acoustic guitar. Or write... Now I have production responsibilities for video content, with me wearing lots of hats.
I look like my pics, which are fairly recent.
Thank you for reading...
