im the good-natured, honest, creative, hard-working, passionate, career-driven, guy next door. so basically i'm the Paul Rudd of JDate. Despite the Banana Republic look in some of my profile pictures, I'm more of a flannel and jeans kind of guy. I'm a california kid at heart though. I grew up in San Diego, went to school in new york and have been lucky enough to find myself in Los Angeles working in the field that i love. i always try to have a positive outlook on life. and i'm extremely grateful and lucky to have a great family and friends. i love movies. love 'em. like a crazy, everlasting, 80's power ballad, kind of love. and i can do pretty good imitations of characters from various Eddie Murphy movies from the '80's. just saying. that can happen. and it probably will.
