Oh boy, the "essay portion" of my profile. I never really know exactly how to navigate this ever important introduction area. First off, just as an update, I've lost a lot of weight in the last two years through diet and exercise, though a bit of a speed bump with those when I quit smoking in April. Working on getting back on track.
Ok, so, A little about me: I'm 32 years old. I have previously worked in graphic design and marketing. Dream job? Nope, that would be film making (in fact, my writing partner and I just finished a script for a television pilot!). I just recently finished a stint with the Census bureau as a Field Operation Supervisor...what a weird job that was! Then I did some film editing (for a VERY odd company). I'm now back in marketing, a little bit of a drier, more boring area, but it pays the bills, so I can't complain too too much. :)
I also just acquired my first two pairs of "geek" glasses. The Buddy Holly, Elvis Costello look. I fought it for awhile because they were so trendy that people were buying them that didn't need glasses. But I came to a conclusion. They look great on me, and they are very much my personality. I will get some pics of them up as soon as the paparazzi catch me going to the grocery store. Also, I dress for the occasion. Whether it be my favorite pair of converse, and a fedora, or a suit and tie, or a snarky t-shirt. I have no set style, I'm all over the place.
Three things I'm really good at:
1. I'm really good at telling stories. Sure, I'll embellish a detail here or there for dramatic effect, but that's part of the fun of storytelling. No one ever tells THE EXACT story. Each time it's told, the teller adds a little bit here and a little bit there. That's really the wonder of storytelling for me. I love hearing them, and I love holding court and telling a particularly funny tale.
2. If I told you the middle one, I'd have to kill you...or at least prove it. Either way, you'll have to find out later.
3. Lastly, I'm really good at listening. Yes, I talk too much. But I also listen when someone needs me to. I am the funny guy often in the group dynamic, but I'm also the one people come to if they need advice, or just need someone to listen to. I love being accessible to my friends in that way.
Six things I couldn't live without:
1.My DVR. I HAVE to be able to record stuff cause I never watch it when it's actually on.
2. My Blackberry. I'm not a total crackberry addict. When I'm out, it stays in the pocket, though it will make an appearance to settle a bet on some bit of random trivia that undoubtedly springs up in conversation.
3. Let's just say, eh, Passion.
4. Fun and or Intelligent Conversation. That whole "what would you bring on a desert island". I'd never make it. I HAVE to have people around to talk and joke with.
5. The Internet. Really, not just because I'm attempting to meet someone on a WEBSITE right now. But, in general. The amount of information I can find on the internet for so many very different things. It's staggering. I'm definitely a child of the information technology boom.
6. The Arts. As you can see by my "interests" section, I'm in love with music, movies, tv, museums, etc. I could really not do without them and the great conversation and emotions they allow you to share with other people.
You should message me if:
You're quirky, but not defined by quirkiness. You're cute, but not "South Florida Plastic Hot". You like to laugh, but won't just laugh at everything I say, unless you actually find it funny. You like highbrow movies, but are a sucker for popcorn entertainment as well. You have great friends too, but none of them seem to be able to introduce you to anyone interesting of the opposite sex. You liked my profile, and can't wait to know more. :) Cheers!
