My self-summary
Well-heeled, well-traveled man. Half Moroccan, half vanilla.

Sharp tongued with a fast brain and a quick mouth.

Serious in the kitchen, heavy on the film, hustler of language, devourer of culture. Pleaser and thank-you-er. Kinky romantic.
What I’m doing with my life
Thoroughly enjoying it. Currently operating the computers and contributing to their ability to operate us.

Previously in the Film/TV business, where I did a bunch of other things. I was ace at carrying someone's dry cleaning, getting their coffee PERFECT, and avoiding objects that were thrown at me.

Writing regularly when not doing the compooters during the day.

Travel as frequently as possible - upcoming: south of France; Thailand/Japan.
I’m really good at
Bullshitting over drinks, cooking, making others feel good about themselves, rapping in the shower/onstage, cursing, watching hours of NBA basketball, making emotional first connections with foreigners.
The first things people usually notice about me
Frequently excited talker. Word wrangler.

Courteous and polite.

Keen on details.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - nonfiction - film books, theory or scandalous stories of starlets all work great. Hip-hop books do just fine as well.

Crime and Punishment was my favorite book for a long time. Lolita is it's own category because it kicks so much ass. I have a guilt complex about not reading enough, so when I read a novel, I pick some arduous classic as a form of penance.

Movies (general in life) - I'm a ginormous film nerd.

In the artsier realm - anything Chris Marker, Hitchcock, Claire Denis, Bresson, Godard, Lynch, Mitzoguchi, etc... I also love old Hollywood and movies where dudes blow shit up good for America or just cause.

Music: grew up on hip-hop but will listen to anything. Recently (re)knocking:

Archie Shepp, Mixes I've made, Arthur Russell, Lea Bertucci, Excepter, David Crosby, Run The Jewels, Bardo Pond, D'Angelo, The Artifacts, Butthole Surfers, Converge.

Shows - The Wire, Seinfeld, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Office UK, Louie, Veep, The Simpsons.

Food - Lots. All.
The six things I could never do without
Sarcasm, hip-hop culture, drink, intimacy, FILM, everything-at-once.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How weirded out I am by people who never play music outloud in their homes.

Plot synopses for unmade dream Nic Cage films.
On a typical Friday night I am
out unless I've been out too much and bed beckons.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have never seen the Lion King, but am totally open to rectifying this.
You should message me if
I've listed above that I am looking for new friends as I have a wonderful girlfriend at the moment. However all of the below still applies. I think I'm among the few that is totally ok with using the Internet to make a new friend/meet someone with similar interests. Maybe you feel that way too and want to meet someone for a drink/coffee, film screening. If so, get at me :)

You're a challenge seeking a challenger.

Extra credit:

You're extremely passionate about film.

Physical activity is a must for you.

You enjoy debate.

You want to cook together. You want to see a show - metal, dance, rap, rock, art, whatever. I'm game.

If you're not born & bred in the US and A or have spent good chunks of life outside it.
