ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

*** I've changed my location from LA to Portland, but technically won't be moving to PDX until early November... I'll update the rest of this profile soon. ***

I'll let you in on a secret - I wrote this profile backwards, since it's easier for me to say what I've done or what I want then to find some witty way to convince you how funny or charming I may be that you haven't seen about as many times as you've seen profiles featuring guys with their shirts off. Yes, I'm smart, motivated, humorous, energetic, responsible, curious, honest and many many more adjective words, but the proof is in the pudding. And yes, for whatever it says about me I did just have to go off and research the origin of that phrase...

I keep lists miles long of places I want to go and things I want to see (even if 80% of the list is probably just things I want to eat...), and do a pretty good job at crossing things off from them. I don't go out every day/night, and am not really a club or bar person except for the occasional trek to a dive bar to see a band play or celebrate someone's birthday, but I'm never lacking for things to do when I go out. And as much as I do like to get out, I'm a big fan of quiet nights at home with a delicious home-cooked meal and a movie, TV show, board game or whatever else.

I moved back to my home town of Santa Clarita in late 2013 to be closer to my family and start up a new business, but after living in Hollywood for most of the last decade, I miss being walking distance from delicious food, breathtaking hikes, retro cinemas and other sights and sounds. Though I do dream of the day when I could perhaps relocate to a lush forest in Oregon or something and spend my days reading, writing, growing my own food and hiking with a canine army. Right now, I'm weighing whether or not I'm going to stay up here a bit longer, or move down towards Hollywood or Santa Monica or something.

I'm looking for someone I have chemistry with, someone who shares a lust for life and has their own passions, someone always up for a new adventure and someone who is genuinely a good person. I'm not in any great rush for anything, but in the end I'm looking for something serious and long-term.


I've defined much of my life with a number of exciting jobs in the entertainment/infotainment industry. In my 20s, I created one of the Internet's first entertainment news sites, which eventually resulted in me running a couple of print magazines for geeks and pop culture junkies. I then got hooked up with a TV show targeting that same demo while on a work trip to the south of France, and spent much of my 30s working as a producer on a live daily cable show. I was too busy to breathe during much of that time, but had a blast not only overseeing silly celebrity interviews but more importantly being on the forefront of educating the masses on social, political and technological issues. That show ended in early 2013, and since then I've been freelancing for various TV and Internet shows, producing podcasts and live comedy shows and just finally enjoying a little downtime to travel and revisit old friends.

Somewhere during the aforementioned paragraph, I went back to school and was certified a Le Cordon Bleu chef. I've had an ever-increasing love affair with food, and tried my hand at launching a food truck in early 2014, but after some months spent dodging my truck's assorted attempts to murder me, I decided I'm better off just cooking for friends, or at least not cooking in a restaurant on wheels.

I've taken most of the summer off unwinding from the 90-hour weeks that consumed my first half of 2014 and am travelling through August, but it looks like I'll be producing TV shows again in September if I don't end up pursuing another food-related endeavor I've been considering.

For fun:

I'm a big news junkie; Be it entertainment, tech, politics, whatever. I love the 24-hour news cycle, warts and all.
But I also love shutting off the phone/cpu/ipad/etc and enjoying a little serenity. It's all about moderation.

Favorite hot spots:

I never tire of what LA has to offer, though I'm happiest walking down to the Farmer's Market or taking the top down and getting the heck out of Dodge. Bitten by the travel bug at a young age and love waking up in strange cities all over the world.

Favorite things:

Food, food and food. Tons of music, TV, films and books. Chili Garlic Sauce, News, Humor, Zombies.

Last read:

I tend to always be reading a few books -- Currently finishing up Lev Grossman's Magicians trilogy, but I'm bouncing between 6 or so other books as well.
