I like going out and trying new things (mostly in or around Manhattan or Brooklyn) exhibits, shows, eating different foods, listening to new music, museums, reading, writing and traveling. I like to have fun. I'm known to be an exceptional friend and able to get along well with all different types of people. I like to take chances with things, but always in a realistic fashion. I'm very attracted to people who are self-sufficient and people who "make" things always intrigue me. Sometimes I go on long walks or ride my bike to very far and random distances- I love to be outside. I like to be serious when it comes to working on my crafts and silly when it's time to have fun. I always enjoy having a good conversation, I find that is more enjoyable than going dancing at a bar that plays crappy house music.
What I’m doing with my life:
I'm very passionate about filmmaking and music so I make films and play in bands. Recently, writing (short stories & screenplays) has dominated my life. I am now developing a show with a close team of writers, and we are trying to get it picked up by a network, so far, we have some important figures that said they’re “interested”. It doesn’t really mean anything, its just nice to actually be acknowledged.
I have been having a hard time starting my own band for the last year so I will either join one or do a solo project (hopefully soon). I'm also serious about lifefood and nutrition- I eat mostly raw food and cheat with cooked vegan foods. I like to conserve energy and try to be positive- I'm like an activist that does not belong to a group. I have to be around nature, or I will go insane. I started going on food foraging trips and have begun to learn how to garden- I'm hooked. My friends and myself are working on projects that are geared to show "how to reduce" energy consumption and use green technology in your home; sustainable living. I started to take up Yoga again, and I feel great. I believe that I vote with my dollar wisely.
I’m really good at:
Playing guitar and critiquing other's work. Coming up with ludicrous ideas, that work. Making people laugh when they need a smile and being the serious one when you need advice. Giving advice on health.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a familiar face and people ask me if I'm their friend's, plumber's, college roomates' undertaker? I'm a good listener. I'm careful and I'm kind to others. When I don't try to make people laugh, I do, and when I am telling a joke, people think I am being serious.

You should message me if:
You are an artist (especially a fellow writer or musician). I'm very attracted to those types. I'm so busy these days, that to be honest, I would really need to have a partner who has very similar interests to keep our relationship functional. I notice that when two people work together on their art, it can be a truly bonding experience, and that's what I want. I would love to have a partner who would want to do collaborative writing with scripts and/or play music with, that way "our time" would never be wasted and we would always be able to connect by something that wold be meaningful to both if us.
I like people who engage in some type of physical activity and aren't lazy. People that accept mother nature as their religion, constitution and philosophy. Having a sense of humor and being open-minded is very important to me.
