My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am approximately ten stories tall. I have a full time job which doubles as a 40+ hour per week workout routine.

In order of proximity to my heart, I am a(n): artist, sage, philosopher, historian, all-around swell guy.

I have the profound displeasure of living in an age where I occasionally experience genuine terror at the idea of nuclear holocaust (usually in the form of an actual nightmare). Other than that, I tend to be fairly progressive.

I have lived greatly, and therefore have many stories to tell. But tell me more about yourself. I love women who are even more brilliant than they are beautiful.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Building buildings. Lecturing at GVSU on the history of ethics. Taking artistic commissions. Writing and illustrating a graphic novel on the nature of reincarnation, an essay on the existential dignity of all sentient life, and researching a hermeneutical work regarding the history of the concept of Time. I'm also building a large polebarn, while learning about the industrial standards of modern cowherding. Helping my eldest brother and sister startup local businesses.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making sense out of obscure philosophical debates,
And boiling the insanity of life down into sensible solutions,
Making art that has never before been seen upon the face of the Earth,
Making jokes on the fly,
Thinking in 4D.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I dress for the occassion. Also, I've been told on several occasions that my intellect is intimidating, but don't let that scare you off. I still put my pants on one leg at a time.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The basic human experience of Time, and the art of relating that to the history of human conflicts and resolutions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is something like a typical Friday night? Really?
