I grew up on the east coast, went to Stanford, and then worked in the business world in Austin before deciding to be a screenwriter. Let's see, when I'm not bragging about myself online. . . I love to push myself intellectually & physically, teachmyself random things like African history or how helicopters work, and talk with friends about ideas, observations, revelations, plans for saving the world, etc. . . I'm also the first to laugh about what a dork I can be.
My approach to life can be intense, but my style is very laid-back. I love to watch great movies & TV, read, drink good wine and random beer, and do just about anything on the water. My friends and family are also very important to me, and I tend to have a hyper-sensitive sense of empathy. I'm the first to notice when someone's feelings are hurt, and I'm usually the guy they want to open up to. If I'm MIA for hours at a party, I'm probably filling in as an amateur psychologist for someone who's not having such a great time. Since leaving the east coast for college, I've lived in San Francisco, New York, Florence, and Austin. LA is the strangest place I've ever lived, but I have to say it's really grown on me. Sure it may be inconvenient and the air may be poisonous, but it has this unique self-deprecating charm that I find sorta cute--almost lovable. I also appreciate the culture & values of the east coast more than I used to, and I love that you can basically create your own existence here. Like life, LA is what you make it with the things you do and the people you hang out with. I just have this one key position to fill in that area. ..
