My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi everyone. I'm a professional graphic artist/illustrator with more interests than a politician has fleas--from movies to art to taking great walks in nature to enjoying all genres of music to discovering awesome antique shops in distant towns, etc...So I wouldn't mind finding someone to share the burden of all these interests with. I was born and raised in the Bay Area during the funky 1970s. I went to Berkeley High and a few years after graduation I attended and graduated from the SF Academy of Art. I've had an exciting and VERY fulfilling career in art ever since.

I'm a romanticist who doesn't really have the time or interest in pursuing multiple women just for quick, cheap thrills. If I meet someone great, why would I not want to get to know that person much better? A compatible connection is harder to find than most people realize. I'm looking to meet someone who's as excited to see my name pop up on their smart phone as I hope to be when I see theirs. I'm not cool, casual and aloof. I'm warm, fun and cozy--and I'm the antithesis of a closed book. I'm also a lunatic for kissing.

And did I mention I like movies?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a professional graphic artist/illustrator and I'd loooove to do something massive with my true passion--oil painting. I've had quite a few individual pieces in gallery showings as well as in magazines (two issues of Juxtapoz!) but after four years I've finally created one heck of an eye-boggling collection of paintings. And I think the subject matter would go over big in Japan. :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Gardening, conversing, painting, drawing, kissing, making people giggle, eating sushi, making cats purr and discussing the movie we've just seen.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile and eyes--or so I've heard. Oh, and my curly hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite movies: Waaaay too many. From "Grapes of Wrath" to "East of Eden" to "A Clockwork Orange" to "Taxi Driver" to "The Artist"--and so much more in-between.

Favorite TV shows: Breaking Bad, Parks & Recreations, Columbo, Seinfeld. And I'm liking a few new things like "House of Cards". But, believe it or not, I don't watch much TV.

Favorite books: "Catch 22", "Without Feathers", "Under The Skin", "Crackpot", "Ragtime", "Breakfast of Champions".

Favorite music: The Clash, Bob Marley, 1960s Girl Groups, Parliament/Funkadelic, Nina Simone, Sex Pistols, The Temptations, Led Zeppelin. Are you seeing a pattern here? If you are, please clue me in because I'd like to know too!

Favorite foods: Sushi, Mexican food, salad (with blue cheese dressing), Key-lime pie. Not much I DON'T like. Finnicky eater is not one of my descriptors.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A cat in my life, long walks, creating art, music, movies, laughing, kissing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
French-fried potatoes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking a nice dinner and watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a fun collection of vintage toys. :)
