My self-summary
I’ll try to keep this simple.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m from Phoenix, AZ originally, got a BA of Arts at ASU then came out to Cali for film school to be a writer. I work for a software company but also do freelance screenwriting on the side and writing is my love and passion so I’ll always be writing in some capacity whether it makes money or not. I've also written a comic book.
I’m really good at
Not looking or acting my age
The first things people usually notice about me
You'd have to ask people what they notice about me though I've been told on a couple occasions (completely unsolicited of course) that I look like Wesley from the Princess Bride or Ethan Hawke from Reality Bites. Go figure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love a LOT of movies and TV shows. Few things I find that I hate. I generally despise pretentious stuff or things that are generic and loved by the mainstream. I do like some of those things, but don’t be surprised if I react negatively towards movies like Birdman or The Heat.

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.
The six things I could never do without
This category might be ok to answer if I haven't already spilled my guts in all the other categories of this profile
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This is going to come of a little shallow but sometimes what I think about more when looking at someone’s profile photos is whether or not I can imagine myself inserted into that lifestyle. I sometimes see pics full of parties or foreign locales and it just looked exhausting. I know every relationship takes a reasonable effort, but if I feel socially drained just looking at vacation and party photos I’ll often skip writing to someone who would be otherwise smart, fun and sexy. I guess that’s my loss, but I hope to find someone who I’m comfortable with in the quiet times of just hanging out in between the crazy inevitable adventures.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing usually, maybe going out, maybe not
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I totally organize my movies in rather OCD fashion: by movie studio (Fox, Universal, Paramount, etc.) then by box art color and then within the same box art color (such as white) I group titles with similar title font color together.

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.
You should message me if
Looking for a cute, athletic, adventurous girl-next-door-type who might also be equally nerdy, funny, an easy intro to family and friends and most importantly (if we click) is available.
