The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about filmmaking and the collaborative process behind it. It's what I do for a living. Also passionate about nature and the environment, politics, news and current events, good food and meeting new friends to enjoy it with in LA.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy walking around the Hollywood area where I live for exercise and to really see the neighborhoods I miss when driving through. Lately I've been hiking to the top of Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park 2-3 times a month and enjoyed that. Been taking in some of the great TV we've had lately: Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Girls, Wilfred and Orange is the New Black.Soon to be going on a trip to Vermont where I'll be sailing, hiking and visiting relatives. Looking forward to it!
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone fun and outgoing. Someone who can appreciate a balance of time spent with me and for themselves. Who will listen as well as she speaks and wants to build a relationship together. I'd love to meet someone who can try new things with a positive outlook and who wants the same from me. It will also help if she's bright, curious about the world around us, analytical, likes to read and appreciates art, good health and being outside.
The first thing people notice about me
Hard to say. In a crowd the first thing people might notice is that I'm not especially chatty, then perhaps because of that they might think I'm intelligent. If they get to know me they'll see that I am unusually calm under pressure. One friend described me as a "Viking Buddha." More than one person has told me I can be hard to read and others have described me as the "nicest guy in Hollywood." Make of that what you will!
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm currently reading President Obama's "Dreams from my Father." Before that it was Donna Tart's "The Secret History" and before that I read "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My career doing something I enjoy.
- The friends I've made along the way.
- Continued good health for me and my family.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Easy-Going, Intelligent, Quiet
