My self-summary
God is the love of my life, so my deepest desire is to know Him more, and through His power to be inconceivably compassionate towards others. Jesus took the burden of all my wrongs, accepted and conquered death, so that I could be forgiven. Experienced complete separation from God, so that I would never have to, and gave me a family with Him forever. There are so many interesting and exciting things in this world that I become enthusiastic about, especially in creativity and the arts, but at the center of it all is the amazing truth that God loves me always... no matter how many times or how disastrously I mess up. My true purpose - whether I say it outright, or slip it into a story I write, or hopefully show it through my everyday actions - is to respond by caring for the people God places in my path, and sharing the good news that salvation is a gift He offers freely to all who ask. That means it's for you too.

Yes, if we'd just met in person, I probably wouldn't say all this so abruptly. Unless I'm very comfortable with you (or a bit tipsy), I can be overly concerned with people's preconceptions. As a Christian raised in New York, I'm used to critical opinions. Not looking to hide my faith either, but I might ease into the topic. And be sensitive to things like tact, and flow of the conversation. Under some circumstances, it may not come up at all. But guess what? We're on a dating site! Figure it's best to start with what matters most. So either I've scared you off already, intrigued you greatly, or kept your attention long enough to keep reading.

(FYI - My first photo is most accurate again. The blonde was only temporary, but makes for a fun photo progression. I'll change it when I get around to it, or find something else with enough pizazz.)
What I’m doing with my life
Art is my passion and my profession. Continuously seeking out new creative/career opportunities, and keeping myself busy with many endeavors. For instance: Sketching live at open mics, theater shows, and music venues. Designing posters, drawing portraits, tabling at conventions and art fairs, teaching classes, doodling at my friends' comic shop... and developing stories for books and graphic novels (when I can squeeze in the personal projects). Expediting that last part by applying for writing grants. Trying to keep afloat long enough to make a solid living at it, and reminding myself to trust God with my future instead of over-worrying.

Regularly attending church and Bible study (surprise surprise), volunteering on occasion through church or elsewhere as I can. Often with kids, or wherever they need an extra set of hands.

Offset by vegging out too long with online manga or Netflix on my computer at home, and staying out too late at the friendly bars down the street... though I may have brought a drawing project along with me. Often feels like I can't spare much time for pure relaxation, but I do sometimes ride my bike along the river, or go exploring around the neighborhood.
I’m really good at
Being optimistic and patient. Thoroughly thinking things through. Or easily succumbing to positive peer pressure, which is how I ended up on this site.
The first things people usually notice about me
Couldn't say... you should go ask them. What have you noticed so far?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading: Fairytales and fantasy, comics/graphic novels, interviews with creatives, unusual articles, art history, theologically-minded material, random recommendations. Taken in so many over the years, it's like choosing favorites amongst your children. But to throw something out there, go read Creature Tech... a book with sequential pictures, quirky characters, highly imaginative elements, oh yeah and GOD's there too. All the things I love best. (Also, my most recent fixation is with this comic Saga. Though the last couple issues mildly disappoint.)

Watching: Humor, suspense, and their hilarious offspring in shows like Psych or Chuck. Romantic comedy, perhaps in Asian dramas. Sci-fi, cartoons, or a mix such as Futurama and Trigun. Studio Ghibli, Pixar, all that good stuff. Certain kinds of indie films or documentaries. And the ones that turn your brain upside-down and twist it in a pretzel, if purposeful rather than wholly unpleasant. AWAKE was an intriguing show of this sort, sadly discontinued. Ever seen original episodes of The Prisoner? Waiting for the next season of Defiance, and finally catching up on Doctor Who.

Listening: Mainly get hooked on certain songs more than bands. Unless they're friends - then I'm into the band more than any particular song. Lately been replaying tunes by Paper Route, Matt&Kim, The Killers, One Republic, Summer Camp, and Grouplove. Bastille's song Pompeii, and Capital Cities music video for Safe and Sound. Somehow I've become a big fan of Foster the People, at least their Torches album.

Eating: Delicious new things. Pumpkin pie... pumpkin anything.
The six things I could never do without
1) Faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ. Thank God for that!
2) Caring and supportive family/friends. (This is starting to sound like the Oscars.)
3) A good book, or story of some sort.
4) Pen or pencil. (Once I was stranded at a rest stop, and they only had tourist junk for sale. Even the cashiers lacked a simple pen. Finally had to beg one off a stranger.)
5) My digital camera. (Best purchase ever made, and attached at the wrist ever since. When that arbitrary shadow falls across the wall just so, and you're compelled to take a picture of it, several pictures of it... or maybe that's just me.)
6) You in my life. Haha, just kidding. Somehow I've managed to survive so far. But I'll keep a spot here for you, just in case.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the heck God might be doing with my life. And elsewhere.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, helping & sketching an incredible local theater performance. Often making comics at my favorite comic shop. Going to a gallery exhibit or music show for someone I know. Chillin at home, like right now... unless it being after midnight makes this a Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That it'll take me a week to come up with something catchy-er to say here. Then I'll mentally kick myself for not thinking of it sooner.

That I'm NOT embarrassed to read YA fantasy novels, because I want to make that stuff for a living.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 24–33
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
We're stunningly compatible by OKC's standards, and you want to talk more. Tell me what you like, and what you'd like to know! Or perhaps we're dating enemies but we'd make good friends - just don't expect it to be more. While I'd be glad to go out for drinks and discuss the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything (spoiler: it's 42), I generally prefer dating with the potential for a deeper relationship, and plausibility of marriage someday. For me, a significant other should not only support my faith, but share in love for God.

You've actually read my profile/questions and mention a point of interest, rather than cookie-cutter comments. (Tip: If you tell me "you are hot" I will be temped to reply with "you are not." But I will ignore you.)

Since I'm rather busy all the time, communication may be spotty or non-existent, so don't get your feelings bruised over it. Probably not available to meet frequently, at first anyway, unless you're willing to join in what I'm already doing. Or if you live nearby, could step out for a bite or a drink. Always appreciate a decent meal, a good conversation, and a dose of out-of-the-box fun.
