I’m funny (probably not as much as I think I am), athletic, Christian, avid movie collector (understatement), comic book reader (also understatement), screenwriter (freelance).
I’m not a man of incredible means, but I make up for that with capacity for love and generosity and heavy doses of sarcasm, bad puns and probably some lousy impressions.
I’m easy-going, will try anything once, love to share interests, like to go out but also to not go out.
I don’t travel much but would be happy to travel with a fun companion.
Animals and small children seem to be drawn to me despite efforts to the contrary – starting to suspect we share the same level of maturity.
Almost Famous, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Wonder Boys, Pan’s Labyrinth, Children of Men, anything with the Muppets (Labyrinth and Dark Crystal and Neverending Story are masterpieces) or animated flicks made by Studio Ghibli (Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, etc.) most all comic book movies and TV shows. I also love horror movies and especially the sarcastic ones or genuinely cheesy ones. If it’s too gory and mean spirited like Hostel or Saw I’m not interested. I have a lot of guilty pleasures so if you don’t make fun of my ginormous movie collection I won’t make fun of yours. I love most anything 80s, John Hughes too. Star Wars too, but beyond the original trilogy I’m not much interested (high hopes for the new movies though).
Sometimes I’m more into writers and directors: Chris Nolan, Joss Whedon, Whit Stillman, Rod Lurie, Wim Wenders, John Hughes, Martin Scorcese, Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo Del Toro, Shane Black, the list goes on. I may add to this as time goes on.
Top 5 Disney: Alice in Wonderland, Black Cauldron, Great Mouse Detective, Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty . . . followed by Rescuers Down Under, Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin. I am sad Disney doesn’t do traditional hand-drawn anymore (bummed that Princess & the Frog was probably the last of those ever) and I liked Tangled much more than Frozen.
TV shows if it’s based on a comic book I’m sold, I dig teenage or high school dramas, and gravitate towards sci-fi/supernatural stuff like X-Files or Star Trek. Love Game of Thrones, Teen Wolf, Hannibal. Buffy the vampire Slayer is the best show that ever lived. Followed by Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, Party of Five, Roswell just to name a few.
Books: Sad to say I find most of the young adult stuff to be more interesting to me than the adult stuff, but I read more comic books and graphic novels these days. As far as comic books go I’m die-hard DC fan and have difficulty reading Marvel at all – but I LOOOOOOVE all the Marvel shows and movies with a passion. I like fantasy and sci-fi novels but I’m super particular.
Music: Not a big music person but I love movie scores and composers. Some of my favorite film composers are: Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Phillip Glass, Max Richter, David Newman, Robert Folk, James Horner, Junkie XL.
Food: I not a huge foodie or adventurous, I’m pretty basic (meat and potatoes and veggies) I’m in no way vegetarian or vegan and sushi is fine but left to my own devices I don’t eat it alone.
I’m not a big social media guy so if you live on Facebook and twitter and Instagram you’ll never see me there. I have Facebook but I never check it, never post, do not participate.
