My self-summary
I am a nerd. And yes, we come in brown. ;)

I am NOT a "douchebag" who is only looking for a one -night stand or casual sex. I am looking for someone smart and cute to spend my free time with.

And no, I am not "comfortable in my own skin." I'm nervous, neurotic, clumsy, awkward and shy. Think Woody Allen with a deep tan and a penchant for poetic profanity, sans the pedophilia (yeah, say that three times fast).

A friend told me once that he had read somewhere that only 2% of the world's population displays what can be considered as "true passion." I am the 2%.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing and directing films that win multiple awards but make very little money. Gotta fix that at some point. And teaching at a local university to pay the bills.
I’m really good at
Cooking (from recipes)
Making films
Winning film festival awards
The first things people usually notice about me
Baby face
Cool frames (re: eyeglasses)
Contagious laugh

Jenna: We all have our roles in college. I'm the hot blonde.
Tracy: And I'm the nerd who takes off his glasses and everyone realizes he's handsome.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything approximating Southern Gothic...including William Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Cormac McCarthy, and Toni Morrison. Throw in anything Junot Diaz, Don DeLillo and Richard Yates. Still haven't gotten around to Franzen or Lethem, yet. Been meaning to fix that.

Most films directed by Wong Kar-Wai, Takeshi Kitano, François Truffaut, Terrance Malick, P.T. Anderson, Spike Jonze and Shohei Imamura. Anything Charlie Kaufman (I absolutely love ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND). My all time favorite film, however, is CITY OF GOD.

True Detective, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards, House of Lies, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Community, Parks & Rec...and Girls (yep, I admit it). And anything cooking related or food & travel related...basically everything on the Food Network.

Anything and everything.

Everything except country and R&B. I'm kind of obsessed with Yppah, Bonobo, Metronomy, and STRFKR at the moment. Can't stop listening to them.
Six things I could never do without
Good Food
Sex (have to admit it)
Making movies
Kitchen gear
(Yeah, that's seven! What?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My first feature film.

How to break into TV directing.

Story themes: broken people, self-destructive tendencies, alcohol dependency, drug addiction, cycles of violence, psychological dysfunction, existential legacies, the fragility of human love...mad love...

...Boston Terriers...French Bulldogs...

...Korean BBQ...and a good bowl of Hakata style ramen.
On a typical Friday night I am
Since I don't know that many people here, and the few friends that are in the area are super busy industry types, I'm usually working on lesson plans or personal film projects. I know: BORING! That's why I'm here on OKC.

Sometimes I grab drinks with my friends, though. It seems just as hard to catch up with people here as it is in New York.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let me think...
You should message me if
You think you might like chocolate but hate stereotypes.

If you're into smart, arty guys that aren't millionaires...yet. ;)
