My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How's it going? I'm Devon :D

Welcome to my profile!

I'm a guy, who has a name, and I like stuff. Yeah.

No but really,

I love attention to detail, colors, wild animals, creative fashion, vegetation, building stuff, getting dirty/sweaty, growing food, home improvement, self improvement, the entrepreneurial spirit, cute stuff like Rilakkuma🐻 and HK🐱, biking, long-distance walking, discussing, hiking, dumpster diving, wholesome fun, dancing to records at home (and if the DJ is actually competent, in a club)

More than shared interests, I value shared principles: consideration, respect, introspection, self-improvement, self-awareness, and fascination with the world.

My challenges are as follows:
• I am not yet good at admitting success, so I often don't take stock of who I am and what I have to offer.
• I am a bit too sensitive to the feeling of "disappointing" others.
• I am a bit too romantic and need practice seeing people exactly for who they are, and not an idealized version thereof.
• I am a late bloomer in a lot of things and had a pretty alternative life up until this point.

I'm aware of these things and I work on them. I appreciate someone who also introspects with self-directed compassion and insight. I could use some practice in the self-directed compassion department, hahah.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lived overseas for 4 years, moved back to LA and had a "learning experience" by helping my family with a weird project for another 4, and now I'm creating my financial and social foundation and being responsible after a long, adventurous, and rather bohemian life path.

I'm the Sales Manager for the Western Hemisphere for a company who makes some seriously kick-ass musical instruments. I love my job!

Also, I'm remodeling my atelier in DTLA (floor, walls, utilities, paint, sleeping area, etc). Once it's done I'll be doing various creative activities there. Other fun typicals include coffee/tea/BBQing with friends, biking, rollerblading, bonding with my community, going to the Korean spa, and helping friends with art projects

I'd love to have someone to be sweet and serviceful to.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
physically expressed humor
handyman stuff
dancing (house, techno, electro, funk)
singing and harmonizing in Japanese
massage (considered studying it a while back, actually)
talking with kids and making them laugh
making the quiet one at the party feel interesting
composing and performing live dance music

Design, spiritual, technology history, Eckhart Tolle, Yogananda, Emerson, David Deida, Julia Cameron, Marshall McLuhan, Japanese magazines like Tokyo Graffiti, KERA, FRUiTS and Tune

adventure, documentary (especially history, archaeology, religion, engineering, society, travel, alternative culture, music), awkward-situation comedies, Best in Show, Wet Hot American Summer, TRON (1982), Indiana Jones, classic Bond, Helvetica, Akira, Dogtown and Z-Boys (the doc)

British humour (The Office, PEEP SHOW, Mighty Boosh) and "reality" shows about people getting rid of clutter, Arrested Development, Parks and Rec, The Wire, TED talks
You can't convince me to watch a show where the "hero" is a meth chemist.

Peter Max, Kandinsky, Mucha, Build (UK designer), Maxfield Parrish, Milton Glaser, Lisa Frank (don't hate, I know you're down with purple metallic zebra-corns), I am especially stimulated by compounded retro style (2000s looking at the 80s looking at the 50s, or 2010s looking at the 90s looking at the 40s and 70s)

funky, moody, peaceful, hopeful, rhythmic, exotic (80s Cantopop or 70s Japanese ballads), soundtrack, piano solo, techno, funky house, (a couple all time faves: Perfume, 小室哲哉, カジ・ヒデキ, YMO, Jeff Lorber Fusion, Michael Jackson, Smashing Pumpkins, Yes, NIN, DEVO, Beatles, Beach Boys, motown, Squarepusher, Earth Wind & Fire, Chic, anything involving Thomas Bangalter), I do enjoy driving to country music with a great lyric. And OMG my new obsession:

If I could split my life between the Middle East and The Malay Peninsula, I think I'd be set. And I get teary-eyed when in front of organic macrobiotic Japanese food cause it's THAT much of a gift to one's self to eat...especially if it's presented like this:
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
♩ The incredible sense of peace and contentment that comes from regular meditation.
♩♪ Letting deep electronic beats, sexy basslines and sassy chords hijack my body (dancefloor, sidewalk, in my room...doesn't matter)
♫♪ Hopping on a train every now and then and feasting on the silent melancholia that saturates the bleak urban railway corridors
♬♩♪ Getting lost in the joy of composing/performing music
♬♪♫ Daily exercise
♪♩♪♫♩ The flicker of golden ginkgo, poplar, or cottonwood leaves against a bright blue sky; instant contentment!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
• our messed-up culture and where we are headed in so many aspects of life
• why the younger generation is so terrified of sincerity
• cool clothing ideas
• if "travel" is a euphemism for "romance" but people feel uncomfortable admitting their desire for it on a dating site
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
• in an exquisite provençal lavender bubble bath, warming the room with some Kenny G, a fresh, foil-embossed Danielle Steele paperback, teasing my lips with some dark Belgian truffles and a chilled sweet rosé, and a 2007 Shirtless Firefighters calendar

(OK, so, I actually rented this profile from someone else and STILL haven't figured out how to delete that weird. It's like, stuck there)

No, but seriously,
• nursing a cheese/cranberry/fig plate and catching a doc with my pal, Netflix.
• karaoke, frozen yogurt, and watching the DTLA sunset.
• dancing at Bar 82!!
• I plan to get a truck by the end of the year so I can go out to the desert at night, look deep into space, and feel timeless, empty, formless, yet simultaneously connected to every place and every time

Saving all that for those who know how to have a conversation

I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–34
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- you like receiving messages that are respectful, sincere, and straightforward

- you're interested in becoming friends first based on a common interest in: house music, sassy basslines, harajuku, organic/healthy living, J-pop, K-pop, anime, cosplay photography, fashion, design, nature, naturism, crafting, building, biking, synthesizers, technologically enhanced art like projection mapping, meditation, yoga (as a meditative/self-loving act)

- you find this online dating thing silly and 1-dimensional, and you just wanna meet up, have a good time, and see if there's chemistry

And finally, some turn-offs (we all have 'em!): pharmacists, football, heavy drinking, poker, your only favorite books being off the US Dept. of Education required reading list, The Valley, being bored, partisan politics, lack of introspection, the word "orientated", energy drinks
