Formerly Finance, Producing My First Off Broadway Rock Opera
How about we… watch an improv performance by Upright Citizens Brigade and laugh till our bellies (or abs) ache?
How about we… watch a French comedy so we have something to laugh over and discuss later, completely avoiding the boring rigmarole of discussing each other.

An awesome place I've visited:
In Lamar Valley, stalking a grizzly on the scent of a mama moose and her calf. Watching a hunt in its rawness will likely upend, if only temporarily, any thoughts that life is precious.
My perfect Sunday:
starts early, involves lots of time spent outdoor, and ends with a new experimental dish being prepared in the evening.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Boarding school was fun; college took too long. Took up skiing at 30 and started skydiving solo at 33. Zenned out and formed a film and theater production company with a couple of friends because I knew nothing about film and theater production. Ate, drank and was very merry along the way.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
How to escape a grizzly. Don't curl up in a ball. Who came up with that advice? Did they test it out with a hundred volunteers curling up into a ball in front of wild grizzlies? No! Run like mad so you have something to do with the last seven seconds of your life!
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
I have a weakness for girls who are tall. A chilled disposition trumps everything else. Just not into guys on the Kinsey scale.
For me, a first date no-no is:
sitting through a bad date (the ones where you later tell your best friend it was "a bad date"). Most of my friends - and it seems most people - do it out of some sort of an obligation I cannot fathom. Not everybody is meant to click. Smile, be polite and excuse yourself. It's not personal. Answering your phone or checking your email. If what's in front is not holding one's attention, then it's time to bid adieu.
What I would bring to show and tell:
My Blendtec of the "Will it blend?" fame, or my marine corps knife from the 50's (common movie prop), or my very large bottle of bear pepper spray (the second best thing after running like mad fails, apparently...).
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
Jean-Luc Godard said it well: All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl. I have one of those stories: I lived, she lived, and the gun...
I secretly want to be:
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
somewhere between Justine and Juliette.
An infatuation of mine:
perennially: closely related to my weakness.... shhhh! more recently: hiking the AT and sailing.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
I already quit my job to try something new... and I cannot condone the idiot tax, even in jest.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I am puckish because I cannot help it, and I look stern in my pictures because I hate to stop and pose.
I want to come home to:
clean sheets that were changed less than a week ago. (Keeping sheets around for two weeks? Let me help you... please?)
