I think I have a pretty amazing life, I was born and grew up in NJ, lived in Florida for college and after, and now I live in LA working as a freelance video editor. Before I moved here, I was also a professional photographer, but that has to go on the back burner for a while, but I still take jobs on occasion. I always try to travel with at least one camera, other than my iphone, or I may steal someone else's to take a picture or two. I am typically behind the camera, So I don't really have a pool of images of myself. And I live in the Los Feliz area with my 15lb hell raiser of a dog whom I affectionately call "killer".
Im italian born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days. Although my mother came over on the boat from Sicily, we were never a die hard ethnic italian household throwing meatball at each other and mobbing it up. I went to church every week like a good little boy who was forced, and went to catholic school after regular school. But as I have grown older, I have come to appreciate that type of up brining, and although not practicing, I still hold my catholic values. Through my grade and high school, I was a quiet child, a couple of friends, not on the popular crowd, so I sunk myself into playing my guitar and playing soccer. I let loose in college, and yada yada yada, here I am. After college, throughout my 20s I was always on the go if I wasn't at work, mostly sitting at bars with my friends. Is that really on the go? hmmm.. Now in my 30s, I take my time and enjoy my life.
Im more of a low key person, if its a school night, my main focus is to be at 100% for the next day.... On the weekends or when I have more free time, I just go where the wind blows. Being a morning person, I enjoy running, cycling, or getting my exercise done before the day starts. Left to my own devices, I have no problem with relaxing on the balcony and reading something, or kicking it old school with some sort of Hulu marathon. I still enjoy watching Seinfeld, nerdy documentaries, some reality or sitcoms, and the fine quality programming of Fox Sunday nights. I tend to have a dry sense of humor and can geek out on anything science or technology related. Instead of going to a bar, now I like to go out and try new restaurants and fare, have cocktails on the beach after that long romantic walk all good cheesy profiles talk about, or just a good old fashioned road trip. Im not one of those guys who has to take pictures of all of his food and post them on the internet... Ok, maybe I am, but is that so bad? Isnt that what Instagram was made for? That and duck faces. I have a problem, but I can control it. I don't need to be on the go or doing something all the time, i like my quiet moments. Love football season and going to almost any sporting event......
Like everyone else, I want to find someone to sit on the other end of the see-saw, more than just a casual relationship, but they take time to develop. Ultimately, Im looking for balance and someone to enjoy life with. At this point, I'm looking forward to meeting new people and casual dating. If something more happens in time, then rock on.
I am a little reserved when I first meet someone, but after a couple drinks, that goes out the door and we will be swapping pet pictures. I typically get along with creative people or people in the entertainment industry. She should be down to earth, a little quirky, and enjoy the moments being together rather than what we are specifically doing. Although if we are hanging out, Im sure each moment will be awesome! I like girls who know how to be girlie but can break out the tomboy when necessary. She should like sports enough to watch and know what's going on or go to a game on occassion. I don't know, is anyone still reading this? Ever see that movie "Team America"? The puppeteering was phenomenal, and what a great story line. 'Merica!
