I will say though that I have been extremely happy (content and happy) with my life for the past 7 years. Lots of traveling and living in different places prior to that...happy as well, just a different kind :-)
LA is home to me now.
I look and feel my age. Considering that 40 is the new 30 :-)
PS: The profile pic is a current (06/2015) self-portrait of myself. That's what I look like (admittedly during the later part of the day, not in the morning!). It is something along the lines that I wish some of you would have on here (in regards to actual visibility/non-blurry/out-of-focus/too small approach that the majority choose). I am a highly visual person but at the same time: wrinkles, mature skin, funny angles do not put me off: trying to hide them does.
I am an actor (yes, in LA) and I used to be a music producer/composer for all my life prior to taking this new exciting path.
Ok, and it's about time that I can also call myself a photographer. (you can see the current works of my instagram feed under photos)
Then in conversations: my energy, which is intense yet supportive and engaging.

Good food (italian, indian, japanese, thai)
Good weather (It feels I wasted too much time living in bad weather cities)
and then I found one of my favorite quotes:
There are those who work all day. Those who dream all day. And those who spend an hour dreaming before setting to work to fulfill those dreams. Go into the third category because there's virtually no competition. ~ Steven J. Ross
I noticed though that a lot of the women on here come up with fantastic events and busy Fridays when in fact I see everyone hanging out on Okc instead. Kinda cute. :-)
Oh, and I'm good with kids and dogs (I just am, not even trying. And no, not trying to get 'cuteness' points for that either)
I look at the pictures first and then the profile.
I have absolutely no idea about bra sizes.
I don't know anything about wine either. Having said that I prefer Merlot and other reds to white wine. But then there's always also going to be a better Tequila.
I play quite a few instruments.
I can smile. I just don't in pics.
Looking for friends and play partners these days....
