My current passion is writing and producing films – sort of a hobby that has developed into a “side career,” as my most recent movie was picked up for distribution, so I’m pretty excited about the concept of being able to walk into a Best Buy and seeing my name on a DVD box. After touring the country with some of my films, I decided to help found a successful film festival last year. We’re hoping to get another feature off the ground this year along with year 2 of the festival, so these are adventurous times for me.
I’m not all film nerd, though– I’ve played, coached, watched and suffered injuries through a bunch of sports, particularly football, baseball and powerlifting. I hang out at beaches, clubs, amusement parks, museums, concerts, stadiums, Travolta’s house, you know, the typical Florida stuff. I’m into all kinds of music, though I’m definitely geared more toward alternative rock – the last couple of years I’ve seen Modest Mouse, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, The Orwells, my long-time favorite Radiohead and this year’s Big Guava festival with the Pixies, Strokes and TV on the Radio was awesome. I also grew up on a farm, so I'm quite experienced with that "outdoors" place mentioned in so many profiles. In summer 2015 I hiked the Chihuahua Desert, both the Texan and Mexican sides, including a perhaps ill-advised trip into Juarez. But, hey, I'm still alive! Whether I am still ME after the later visit to Roswell, New Mexico, remains to be seen. (The aliens did not tell me to say that, I swear.)
I like to think of myself as an ordinary guy with the potential to be extraordinary. I'm looking for someone to share the fun times with and am very excited at the thought of meeting someone new who will shake up things in my life.
Skip rocks across the Seine? Snorkel in the Dead Sea? Have a snowball fight on the peak of Kilimanjaro? (Not to pressure you or anything, but we'll have to hurry on that one!)
