My self-summary
I'm an artist. The combination of hard work and luck has led to an adventurous life and lots of every day happinesses. I'm passionate. Love to laugh. I'm pretty driven, but the flip side of that is taking in the simple things. I'm at that point in my life (after working pretty hard to survive as an artist) that I'm finally enjoying the world around me. I love exploring things: from climbing mountains to understanding people to learning about history. I love the journey (not the band, well, actually, yes the band). Carpe Diem was under my yearbook photo. I love long conversations where you discover who someone is. I have this enormous capacity for love and have loved very deeply. I never thought I would be online, but because of my work, it's challenging to meet someone out of the profession. So here I am...and that's awesome. I'm looking forward to the journey...
What I’m doing with my life
I feel very blessed that the big dreams of the small kid from the small town actually came true. I guess better than that: they evolved into something more fulfilling. I wake up everyday and love what I do. I'm also surrounded by wonderful people. So, no matter what mountains are there to climb (and there are many), I feel very lucky to have the life I do.
I’m really good at
Getting people excited. Getting things done. Opening people's eyes by creating and teaching, or connecting. I'm a good listener and observer. Making people laugh...you have to laugh at how ridiculous we all are. It humanizes you. Come on, you're reading an online dating essay-- a free online dating service -- no, better yet: I'm stressing over writing the essay for the free online dating service.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. My sense of humor. My passion for what I do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Gatsby, Catcher, 1984, Lord of the Rings, Separate Peace...I'm such a boy. And non-fiction on presidents, historical events, and lives of artists.

Movies: Boogie Nights, Godfather I & II, Shakespeare in Love, Guffman and Best of Show, The Rings Trilogy, The Exorcist, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Nixon, and I'm usually entertained by Michael Moore.

Shows: My favorite Shakespeare are Hamlet and Twelfth Night. This is a discussion topic...

Music: Radiohead, Coldplay, U2, Ben Folds, Michael Jackson, 60's R&B, and there's some vagina rock in there.

Food. I like to cook so sky's the limit.
Six things I could never do without
1) theatre
2) my best friend
3) laughter
then in no particular order
4) the color green
5) traveling
6) learning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to create something innovative that can effect change. Balance in my life. Keeping the people I care about happy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something connected to the theatre OR cooking dinner and then great conversation with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'd have to ask me...
You should message me if
you have a wicked sense of humor, deeply caring, love learning, passionate about life and are willing to go on a journey.
The two of us
