My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an artist, both for fun and professionally, but I don't really fit into any of the standard "artist" stereotypes. That is to say I'm not hip; not even close to it.

I also spend quite a bit of time doing my "day" job which is extremely far removed from my art career. I'll give someone a cookie if they can guess what it is (hint: its sciency and I had to get all kinds of gov't clearances in order to do it.)

I also recently went into a venture with a friend of mine and now am a co-owner of an art gallery.

I started playing the banjo a few years ago and I'm terrible at it. Why the banjo? Not enough people play the banjo, and they should. That and I have this dream of starting a bluegrass gangster rap cover band.

All the coolest things about me are inside, where you can't see them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work a crazy job where I travel a lot and work 7 days a week 12 hours a day for about 1/2 the year and I'm off the rest of the year. My job is awesome and it affords me a lot of time to focus on my art but all the travel and the insane hours do make it difficult to develop and maintain relationships.

I spend a lot of the remaining time doing artwork.

During the periods that I'm not making art or working I can be found doing any number of things including, but not limited to, playing trivia, catching local bands, going to museums, reading, going to art openings, attending and/or watching Blackhawks games or working on stuff with the gallery.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I don't (read: do) want to brag but I'm pretty damn good at art stuff and I have a few "best in show" awards and such to back up the veracity of that statement along with "high profile" art sales to professional athletes, Pulitzer nominated authors, politicians and big-time Hollywood celebrities.

I am, perhaps, the most terrible banjo player in the history of music. So much so that I really shouldn't mention that I play it at all. I mainly tell people about it because I think it makes me sound cool.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I were to venture a guess, (which I suppose is what I'm supposed to do here) I would say it's probably the smudge of charcoal or the bit o' paint that I somehow managed to
get on my face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:

I read a lot so I'm just going to list some of my favorite books that I find myself reading over and over again:

-River of Doubt by Candace Millard
-Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
-Life of Pi by Yann Martel
-Harpo Speaks by Harpo Marx
-Fly Fishing the 41st by James Prosek
-Blue Blood by Edward Conlon
-Wold War Z by Max Brooks
-obscene amounts of revolution era and early industrial age U.S. history. Particular favorite subjects are vice, crime, social changes and almost anything about Theodore Roosevelt.

Movies:

I am obsessed with film, both good movies and bad. I fancied myself a film maker for a while, I was in a few festivals and had a nomination for an animation I did in 04 (with a voice over by TJ Miller; who has gone on to some pretty awesome things, you should IMDB him and then be impressed that I know that guy).

All that bragging crap aside, I find myself watching comedies more than anything.

Music:

My all time favorite band would have to be The Siderunners, but I'm pretty open when it comes to music. From around the age of 13 till I was 24, I didn't really listen to anything except punk rock. Now that I'm older there's not really any genre of music where I haven't been able to find someone that I liked... Possible exceptions would be death metal or modern country (every single song in these genres sounds exactly like every other song in these genres)

TV:

Squidbillies
Dexter
Game of Thrones
Breaking Bad
Boardwalk Empire
Masters of Sex
Family Guy
American Dad
Modern Family
Louie

Food:

I'm not picky and I like to try new things. I am not, however, very good with spicy. I can handle "mild" but the farther from that you get the less likely I'll be to do more than a taste.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Art Supplies (I'm counting them all as one)

Family and Friends

Casis suits

A way to get from A to B.

Inspiration and creativity (they go hand in hand)

A computer with internet access. (I suppose I could probably live without this, but I don't think I'd want to.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Proportion. Texture. Lighting. Color balance. Saturation.

I have also been known to spend far too much time wondering if I've missed something.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you would like to be my accomplice in any of the aforementioned activities.

You would like to actually meet up in the near future as I'm not a huge fan of passive communication methods, like email, for getting to know people.
