My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey hey.
DISCLAIMER: Polarized sexists (machos and feminists included), money-mongers, willing ignorants, alcoholics - read no further, I am not your man. Howe'er, for those appreciative of creative and intellectual minds who participate in higher thought, I have a few elevated ponderings for you...

The first: "It's fascinating to me that trees resemble lungs, rivers resemble arteries, people resemble cells, and the whole of Life on Earth resembles a pubescent teen just trying to figure it's shit out while growing up."

Seocnd: "Everything is a vibration, thus everything is circular. It's no wonder that we all identify with music on some level; and furthermore, that patterns drive our sociological development."

Third: "The illusion that we are individuals is our greatest contemporary setback. Humans are no more individual from their humanity than atoms are from their compounds, cells from theri organs, children from their families, species from their genus, and stars from their galaxies. Love is the celebration of that connection."

Still there? Cool.

Let's talk creativity. Nathanael's favorite contemporary artists include:
Macklemore X Ryan Lewis "Same Love"
Olafur Eliasson A master of light and line
Aniis Nin "In Favor of the Sensitive Man"
Brandon Boyd A beautiful being
RE Casper My best friend

Still with me? Ok...we might click.

Now for an excerpt from my interview with...a stranger:
So, Nathanael, if you took a break from "Life" for 6 months, what would it be like?
"Part of me romances a life on the road, backpacking the Pacific coast with a sketch pad. Chillin' with my dog Sancho Panza in seaside crannies. Dancing for change. Waxing poetic with strangers at a chess board in a park, with the aroma of roasting coffee in the air."

How about a year anywhere you want?
Sure, why not.
"If I could travel to vacation homes in different periods of time, I would winter in Cleopatra's Egypt; spring in 1960's Rio; summer in 1920's San Francisco, autumn in 12th century India. Wherever I am, my senses are engaged, my mind is piqued, and my hunger for knowledge and experience more satiated than the day before, but never quite full."

Nice. 30 seconds in an elevator to tell us who you are. Go.
"I have a feeling you'd have to be an artist, or really into creativity to "get" me. I don't own a TV, and I watch very little hollywood. I will sometimes do/say things differently than usual just to keep me on my toes. My IB English paper on "Things Fall Apart" is still used as an example in class...I never read the book. Studying human behavior/sexuality is a hobby of mine - favorite topics are Tantra, polyamory, ego, and fetishes. I am working on being more straightforward and forthcoming. I was raised Catholic, but guiltless sex is healthy and hypocrisy is unattractive so I quit. I have a sweet tooth to which I hate admitting. I think grammar is taken too seriously, and...I love a good conspiracy."

Cool. Thanks for sharing.

If you're inspired to share your responses, please do.

Have you gathered that I'm very comfortable being myself (that is, a bit weird), and being on my own? Even though a life time relationship is the best result, I'm not on the hunt for one. Instead, what I am looking for here is a little different. The following aren't rules, per se, they're more like guidelines.

1. You should enjoy dancing; or at least me, dancing. It's ingrained, it's cathartic, and It happens. and I can't get turned on by a mopey or pessimistic attitude. I'm optimistic (but I wear glasses to see reality clearly). I like to surround myself with other positive people.

2. creativity and depth of thought are the most irresistible qualities. And if you happen to want to talk metaphysical with me, I'll bring my best quantum mechanics.

3. so far, it would be a good sign if you have to have found any of this amusing or entertaining.

Pop Quiz: Did you catch my name when I dropped it earlier?
A) Yes.
B) Um...[scrolls up/skims]...oh. Yes.
C) No. I wasn't that interested at that point. But I am now.
D) Who cares. I read profiles for amusement.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Curses. This is a lofty request...

Creatively I'm inclined to be designing audience experiences, painting on glass (playing with light), dancing to my favorite hiphop, or wordsmithing the english language. Following Trent Reznor has also been a recent occupation, leading me to produce an NIN inspired stage show/film/graphic novel titled 3HALOS.

One day, I'll patent and sell a grade school curriculum that integrates chess into the daily syllabus. And then, I'll start a coffee tours venture in Chicago. And then, I'll develop a customer service training course for other local businesses. One day.

Til then, I am busy starting a business, presently living the "art for life" dream. My primary focus is 3HALOS - imagined on the scale of Cirque, or Blue Man Group. If all goes well, you'll be seeing my show in LA, Vegas, Chi, NYC, and London. I have a great cast who inspires me routinely.

When I'm not brainstorming I am pretending to have a head cold/psychosis/bad temper for UIC med school students, helping them learn to be less awkward and insensitive with their patients in the exam room. There's a seinfeld episode about it:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
swaying from the status quo. shifting paradigms just for gits and shiggles. tap dancing. puzzle solving. stove-top experimentation. chess board bounty hunting. reinventing the english language. word play. sword play. foreplay. public dis-play. opening my mind. doing it better, my way.

Or in short, loving life. Also, occasional alliteration: Exploring, experimenting, experiencing. Passion, pride and persistence.
