Hiya. I'm a writer so this is gonna be long and rambly.
I have a positive outlook on life and am generally optimistic (at times to a fault). I'm pretty laid back and easy going though I have pet-peeves like every normal person does (I hate outsourced phone support and people who don't use turn signals). Before I started doing triathlons my laid-backness might've been construed as "lazy" but not anymore, thank you very much. Now I wake up at 6am on Saturdays to go running or biking or swim in the Pacific, which never gets much warmer than dumping a bucket of ice-water on yourself. I have a beard, so that keeps my face warm.
I'm a lot of fun though can be a bit shy at first. Once the ice breaks, though...watch out. I love to laugh and make other people laugh as well. Sort of make it a mission to make other people laugh. I have a great sense of humor which at times borders on inappropriate (I'm not cracking jokes at funerals/serious events or anything but I will try to make you laugh in most other situations. I can be a homebody just as much as I'll go on a 30 mile bike ride or a road trip somewhere. I'm not really a "hiking" type but I do like being outside. I love a good bbq and hanging with my friends.
My favorite "holiday" is Halloween - I plan ahead and get way into the costume, so keep that in mind. I probably spend too much on my costumes but it's usually worth it. Also pretty important that you be into it, too. None of this "What am I? Oh...I'm evil me." And no, "I'm Clark Kent changing into Superman." No you're not. You're wearing a Superman tshirt under your suit because you were too lazy to come up with a decent costume. That sh*t don't cut it in my book. By the way, I swear. But I won't at your cousin's Bar Mitzvah unless your crazy uncle does first. Promise.
I also love experimenting in the kitchen. I can cook and bake and like to try making new things all the time. I watch Top Chef and then I get all "what crazy thing can I try to do?" Usually it ends up not looking too Tom Collicchio-y but usually it tastes good and that's really what matters right? My mom is an awesome cook so it's pretty important to me, too. I'm not saying I need home-cooked meals every day but it'd be nice to know that it's an option. I love to eat. Love going to good restaurants. I'm kind of a foody. But I will also destroy some Chick-fil-a because that place is delicious.
I also love to travel. I've been a lot of places and want to see more. I've spent a lot of time in Europe and Asia and even lived in Beijing for a while when I was in college. My favorite thing is to explore a city with a Luxe guide or something until you find someplace awesome. That said, I'm definitely a fan of comfort when I travel so I'm less about "roughing it" and more about finding the best way to upgrade the flight or find an awesome hotel. On a side note, my best friend got me hooked on finding the best planes to fly on so you may have to deal with me on that a little. I promise you'll thank me for it though. Anyway, I'm good to go out in a group and just as capable of exploring on my own - though there's something to be said for sharing a cool moment with someone else.
I'm running out of room.
I work in entertainment so creativity is important to me. I'd just as soon go on an elaborate date as I would catch a movie or stay home, watch tv and eat Chinese (food. Not people). I'm also a big fan of a spur of the moment matinee. I'll see most any movie. Even the really sh*tty ones where people are like "who goes to those movies?" Me. I do. And I know there gonna be bad. That's the terrible thing. Hopefully you can share in that or at least not judge me for it.
I'm also a huge nerd. I had glasses and braces, but I got those off and wear contacts now. So now I'm a nerd in disguise.
So that's it. Hope I put a smile on your face at the very least. Let me know if I did. We can talk Star Wars.
