My self-summary
I like to think of myself as the strong, quiet type. I always try my best to be a gentleman, and I think treating a woman right is of the utmost importance. I think every person is worth getting to know, and the only way to do that is to listen.

I'm a big fan of an evening downtown for the lights, museums for the sights, but have no problem staying in nights to watch a movie and have some great conversation.

I love all forms of art - books, movies, music - and love to share my favourites with people, and find new ones. I'm totally hooked on music and love going to concerts.

One of the best things anyone has ever said about me is that I remind them of an old fashioned movie star.

Everything else blame on genetics and the rain.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the community editor for the Lakewood Sentinel, part of Colorado Community Media. I cover events in the city from police and government reports to whatever else interesting is happening.

I also have a music column that allows me to write about one of my passions.

I graduated Cum Laude from Metro with a journalism major and an English literature minor, so the written word is very important. I'd love to write for a music magazine like Stereogum or Rolling Stone, and work on my own fiction.
I’m really good at
I make totally brilliant mix-tapes (or CDs, I guess).

Cheering people up. Cheering people on.

I'm a really fast reader, so I go through books very quickly. I've been told I'm a gifted writer, and am always experimenting with different stories and forms.

Quoting applicable movies/lyrics/books at the drop of a hat.

I also am pretty good at being sarcastic, but never in a cruel way.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is that I'm making them laugh.

I love Mexican and Italian food, and am searching for the perfect cheeseburger.
Six things I could never do without
Friends, music, Italian food, films, family, books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The people I love, story ideas, music, the future. My mind is always working away at something.
On a typical Friday night I am
I go out with friends when the chance arises, or when there's a new movie or concert I want to see. Otherwise, at home reading with music or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I need inspiration for writing, I watch Aaron Sorkin's television shows (Sports Night, The West Wing and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) hoping I'll be able to pick up even a little of his writing style.
You should message me if
If you're looking for somebody who is a great listener, who treats women well, who is addicted to music, loves going to movies and concerts and spontaneous adventures.

If you'd like someone who can make you laugh and truly get to know you, I'd love to hear from you.
The two of us
