My self-summary
Haven't been active on OkCupid for a while, so it's time to update my profile. All my photos were taken this year.

I'm at a point where I'd like to meet the person I'm supposed to meet. It's as important to me as anything, but lately I've been guilty of not making a big enough effort. I'm attracted to women who are creative, very intelligent, sexy, strong-willed and compassionate.

In terms of relationships, my role models are my parents who had been happily married for over fifty years.

It would be great to find someone looking for a true companion. Someone to share one's love and life, all of it. Perhaps even someone who'd enjoy collaborating on a web series or screenplay or some other creative project.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently writing for a new animated kids show. I also recently finished the pilot for a comedy web series I co-created called "Never Say Nyet." My writing credits include four episode of The Simpsons.
I’m really good at
Analyzing screenplays and giving positive feedback to writers. Dealing with kids. I have nine nephews and nieces and I'm currently tutoring a friend's nine-year-old son.

Six things I could never do without
A positive outlook.
The Internet.
My friends and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creative stuff I'm working on. Progressive issues. People I care about. The wonders of nature -- especially animals. Politics. Eroticism.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is less about me and more about my family. And it's not admitting, it's boasting. My brother cured my sister's pancreatic cancer. After she was diagnosed two years ago, my brother, an independent cancer researcher, spent three sleepless months, reviewing hundreds and hundreds of published articles. He discovered a drug that wasn't used for pancreatic cancer but he believed would be effective in my sister's case. He wrote a sixty page document to present to hospitals about the protocol. Many had too many bureaucratic restrictions to try something new, but a hospital in Boston agreed. Two years have passed and my sister is cancer-free. (She just was retested this week.) It's surreal and there isn't a day everyone in the family isn't thankful for what my brother did. So while I'm the "creative" one in my family, he's the one who is truly brilliant.
You should message me if
If you'd like to meet for something low-key like a cup of coffee or an opening at art gallery. I'd much rather do that than exchange a lot of emails or phone calls. The only way to know if there's any chemistry is to meet in person.
The two of us
