I was born and raised in Chicago. I've got a couple of graduate degrees. I have two French Bull dogs who act as surrogate kids for me (Yes, they have Xmas stockings). It's very important to me that whoever I'm with likes animals. I think dogs are a constant reminder of what unconditional love is and that it's a magnificent thing to have in our lives.
As for my personality: I like to think I'm witty, smart, logical, creative and an all around "nice guy"(Who doesn't, right?). I'm super competitive and can be stubborn at times. I'm a far better human being after 10AM and a large espresso.
I would love to meet that someone special and not have to repeat my life story over and over again.
WORKING: AI'm also a recovering attorney - turned playwright & stage director, turned filmmaker now turned TV guy. After years of freelance, I just started "showrunning" for a TV show ... and I'm adjusting to the "go to an office everyday" thing again. It's a political satire show, and "yes" politics are kind of a big thing for me. So is decency - so no trumpkins please.
Movie: My Favorite Year, Living in Oblivion, Any of the Lord of the Rings, When Harry Met Sally, Witness For the Prosecution & almost any by Woody Allen (later stuff) or Hitchcock.
Shows: Into The Woods, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, Camelot, Any Shakespeare, Beckett, Albee and T. Williams (if I feel like drinking)
Music: Blues, Industrial & "a bit of the old Ludwig Van" (points if you know the movie!). Got to throw Van Morrison, James Taylor and Patricia Barber in here.
Food: Korean BBQ, Steak, Sushi
2. My Dogs (I have 2 Frenchies: Fred & Lizzy)
4. A creative outlet
5 & 6. Maslow's first 2 tiers
I do prefer to actually talk in person or on the phone to see if we get a long - so please no permanent internet pen-pals.
