Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a US Army veteran trying to make the cut as a graphic designer
and multi-media guru. On my off time I tend illustrate in Adobe
Photoshop and Illustrator. I have a big fascination with
multi-media and animation.
Right now I'm reading books by Richard Dawkins and Carl Sagan (I
enjoyed Sagan's 'Cosmos' series very much and currently own a copy
If the reader knows either of the names above, yes those are world
renowned scientists and both adopted a rather anti-religious theme
when it came to their world views. Their world view is essentially
mine. I don't think anyone has the authority or privilege on
speaking about the supernatural... even less speaking for the
supernatural as most religious leaders claim to do. Then those same
people have the audacity to turn around and call rational thinkers
arrogant and presumptuous for claiming to know everything... which
is something neither Carl Sagan did or Richard Dawkins does. Nor do
any rational and non-religious person claims to be either all
knowing or have access to the full extent of information possible
concerning our cosmos.
To follow that up: yes, that means I have a HUGE beef with
Young-Earth Creationists who insist that the Earth is around 10,000
to 6,000 years old and that the flood as described in Genesis is a
literal story entailing a wooden boat containing over 10,000
species of spider... not including the rest of the animal/land
dwelling/flying genomes. Some people seem to get confused over this
matter so I will follow this up with I accept Darwin's theory of
evolution to its fullest extent and meaning.
That said, nowhere in Darwin's theory is it outlined that there is
no god... simply because he doesn't have anything to say on the
subject of god, let alone the Abrahmic themed god that many people
still worship (or claim to worship) today. Nor does any field of
science have anything to say on the existence of a god, or pixies
or demons... etc. Why? Because science can't make any claims on
subject that either exist in the supernatural... or don't exist at
Even with all of that, never let it be said that I don't have
respect for people's spirituality or religion... because I do. I
have three people in history that I look up to. Two of them are
unarguably religious: Mohatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and
Abraham Lincoln. These were men that did the best they could for
the equality of opportunity for all people. Each of them were
tragically shot and killed by hateful individuals.
“Faith... Must be enforced by reason...When faith becomes blind it
dies.”~ Mohatma Gandhi
"Matter flows from place to place and momentarily comes together to
be you. Some people find this thought disturbing, I find the
reality thrilling."~Richard Dawkins
Other than that, most of my life is personal. I'm not going to
share that information with a bunch of more or less anonymous
people. If you want to get to know me, talk to me. Either by
messaging or chatting, the bottom line is I'm not going to do that
here on my profile for essentially the whole world to see.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm on track to finally have my Bachelor's in Graphic Design in mid
2011. I'm currently employed as a freelance graphic designer and
webmaster at a local advertising company named
It's a small group, just me an 4 other guys, but we get the job
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Illustrating. I am very good at illustration. Am I one of the best
illustrators? Answer: no. I'm far from what many would consider
professional, but that doesn't keep me down and I enjoy making
As a result my skills are best applied to programs such as
Photoshop, Illustrator (I know, redundant... but it's a program!),
Cinema 4d, After Effects, Flash, 3D studio max etc.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People might describe me as quite or shy. This is probably true.
I'm not actually veering away from social interaction, I'm simply
observing so that I don't make an awkward step on toes.
So in a way I live by the phrase, "Better to stay silent and be
thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

I'll refrain from listing the physical necessities of living... so
Company to share it with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I do spend a good deal of time wondering about the future of
humanity on this planet. Information and travel have made our world
a considerably smaller place in a lot of ways. Compounded by
photographs of our world and revealing it as nothing more than a
fading blue crescent against the citadel and bastion of the
stars... can we continue to maintain social, economic and religious
differences in the face of how small and fragile we are?
As a great man once said, "An organism at war with itself is an
organism that is doomed to fail."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Running a Dungeons and Dragons game. I'm not joking. Me and about 5
others gather around a table of maps, pewter miniatures and dice to
hash out a 5 to 6 hour game. It's very enjoyable and if you're a
hobbyist too I invite you to join.
