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 chance that, soon, I may be splitting time between LA and Detroit--which is where I'm from originally. So I'm open to meeting people from SoCal or MI (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).
Then, 2 days after updating all that, I was recruited to take a job that would have me in DC for the summer, perhaps a bit longer. I'll still have to shutle to LA and Vegas, though.
Sick of my old profile, thought I'd do something different.
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.
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.
I must be a total loser. I have no pics from Maccu Piccu, or of me ziplining, or selfies.
I was on match previously--my last 2 relationships were spawned from winks (yes they can work). Back in that past life I was a rocket scientist, and although an uber nerd, still viewed as a contemplative explorer of the cosmos. Now that I've changed careers and work primarily in the entertainment industry, the reaction I receive now is like I'm just one script or book (I write both) away from buying a sports car and dating hot women who are far too young for me.
For those who are all about stereotyping Hollywood folk, writers are... if not normal, then certainly more family-oriented (every one I know is). I'm hoping to be family-oriented too in the not-too-distant future. Besides, as a former rocket scientist, just think how insanely smart our kids would be.
I have birds, dogs, turtles, and koi. For most people "animal lover" translates to "dog and/or cat lover." If you're freaked out by parrots or ratties (awesome, misunderstood little critters), I'm probably not the guy. We're a package deal.
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, DC, 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 I work on.
Also a Fannibal and love TWD.
Orbit Determination and Evolution of Comet C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp). You asked. Well, match asked. Also read "Mad, Bad, and Dangerous: A History of Scientists in Film."

I spent 15 years in the space program. Though I still do research, still publish and teach college astronomy, most of my time is spent now as a writer. I'm juggling 2 books, just had a series greenlit, and consult on 2 SyFy series. Thezuhaaktu!

If it's not obvious, I've got just a wee bit o' Irish in me. Some English and Czech too.

For my dissertation, I did something thought impossible since 1937--it's very mathy/nerdy.
