I love reading, writing, recalling bizarre bits of movie/TV trivia . . . and being funny when you least expect it. I also love running, staying fit and staying active. Who I am and what I'm about can best be described by this brief exchange from the awesome 90s rollerblade film Airborne:
Mitchell: Popeye, now there was a great man. Do you know why?
Wiley: He never joined the Hairclub For Men?
Mitchell: Wrong. Because his motto was: I am what I am. Do you think Popeye ever worried about what he wore just so he could get Olive Oil in the sack? I should say not, Dude. And do you know why?
Wiley: He was gay?
Mitchell: Because he is what he is.
I am a freelance screenwriter, but I also have a full time regular job so I'm stable in at least that sense. Relationships are never perfect because people aren't perfect and you really have to discover each other's flaws and either love them despite those flaws, or in some weird cases, love them because of those flaws. I'm always working on mine and trying to overcome them. Thus ends the sappy portion of my profile.
