Former nerdy rocket scientist turned nerdy writer now casting for a leading lady.
Check back after a few days & see if he has added more details to his profile.
47 year old man
Sylmar, California, United States
There's a good chance that, in the near future, I may be splitting my time between LA and Detroit--which is where I'm from originally. So I'm open to meeting people from SoCal or Michigan (Five minutes after I typed that, I found out that a series I'm working on will be doing most of its shooting, mo-cap, and VFX in Vegas in the coming year--so I guess I'm open to that as well).
Sick of my old profile, thought I'd do something different. Why, yes, I am a writer, why do you ask?
There once was a lad, sharp of wit,
Red of hair, clean of mind, body fit.
His life, though quite nice,
Was lacking in spice,
"To a woman," he thought, "I'll commit."
A story's best told from the start,
'Cause sometimes, well, that's the best part.
So now we'll digress,
Head for the midwest,
And weave a tale that begins from the heart.
A young couple, try though they might,
Were childless, so to end their plight,
To the home they did ride,
Upon going inside,
Spied the redhead, 'twas love at first sight.
An only child growing was he,
The hugs, love, and snuggles flowed freely.
He was encouraged and prodded,
Motivated and lauded,
"We want you to be all you can be!"
Years later, writing software for cars,
Often eschewing the bars,
He got little rest,
Did his studious best,
'Cause someday he'd send probes to the stars!
Quite well educated was he,
3 B.S., 2 M.S., Ph.D.
You'd think with that much,
Book learning and such,
He'd be a dullard, but he's not, wait and see!
At home he was hardly a slob,
A trait learned from his father, Bob.
Yes he put down the seat,
Though not retentively neat,
Better yet, you'll like this, "I've a job!"
His career seems nearly sci-fi.
Launching probes, off to Saturn they fly.
His research is exciting,
(Except paper writing,)
He’s a real rocket science kinda guy!
Then Hollywood summoned his name,
With the promise of fortune and fame.
His skills put to the test,
With increasing success,
"It's a HOBBY," or that's what he'd claim.
Then somebody got in their head,
“Your words would surely be read,”
So he said, “What the heck?”
Wrote books, blog, and a spec,
Turns out people DO care what he’s said.
Though exciting and filled with rewards,
Life somehow still left him bored.
"I know! A wife!
Is what's needed this life,
And a family we'll both work towards.
He discovered the Match.com site,
And entered to find his Ms. Right.
He saw dozens of great ladies,
Names from Sharon to Sadie,
Thus, the limericks he started to write.
I'm from Mars, and I hear you're from Venus,
Perhaps soon naught will e'er come between us."
And though most of the time,
Humble and sublime,
I'm big on...discretion in rhyme.
I sure hope you like animals too.
Do I live in a house or a zoo?
With a pack and a fluffle,
Feathers to ruffle,
And a mischief of Murinae too.
'Tis a challenging task, to be sure.
Finding a lass who's both sweet and demure.
So he put pen to paper,
And then, hours later,
The tale's end? That he left up to her.
Fun icebreaker, how would you answer:
The History Channel series "Ancient Aliens" is:
1: A scientifically interesting alternative viewpoint on the origins of fantastic engineering feats of early humans.
2. Tabloid science that, perhaps, might find a better home on SyFy Channel.
There is (seriously) a character in a Steven Spielberg drama inspired by several aspects of my personality. Who do you think it is?
I have birds, dogs, turtles, and koi. I also have pet rats. LOVE 'em! They're a deal-breaker for many, but we come as a package deal. That's also a hint for Icebreaker #2.
When I watch TV, there's always somebody furry or feathery with me.
I'm a gym rat (but returning slowly after a knee injury and subsequent re-injury) and do the annual U.S. Bank Bldg. stair climb in downtown LA. I like live music, and go see friends perform fairly often. I also enjoy movies, travel, SCUBA.
I get to Phoenix (Mesa) and San Diego often. I'm a HUGE fan of the SD Zoo, and go a couple times a year. I also love La Jolla. I've visited all 50 states and 17 countries. Faves are NYC, London, Venice (Italy not CA), and Vancouver, BC.
Planting the hedges and installing fixtures.
Pouring the concrete, creating paint mixtures.
Making the home in which I will be king
These are a few of my favorite things.
Fave TV shows/films? The ones that I work on. Also a Fannibal and love TWD.
Mostly scripts and planetary science journal articles, Have read several books recently as background for the two I'm writing at the moment.
MUCH more interesting to me is,"What is the last thing you WROTE?"
5'0" (152cms) to 6'1" (185cms)

I spent 15 years in the space program. Although I still do research, still publish, still teach college astronomy, most of my time is spent now as a writer/producer. I'm juggling 2 books, just had a series greenlit, and consult on a sci-fi series.
Never Married, Widow / Widower, Divorced
I'll tell you later
Yes, and they sometimes live at home, No, Yes, and they live away from home

If it's not obvious, I've got just a wee bit o' Irish in me. Some English and Czech too.
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Seriously? I'd give out my SSN and mother's maiden name before I discuss something that personal in a text box.

PhD / Post Doctoral
Associates degree, Bachelors degree, Graduate degree, PhD / Post Doctoral
For my Ph.D. dissertation, I did something thought impossible since 1937--it's very mathy/nerdy. Feeling underedumacated, I, essentially, went to film school (UCLA writer's program) post-Ph.D.
