My self-summary
So, once upon a time I was born. Right here, in New York City - one of those rare native specimens. After a few years in Baltimore for college, found my way back and am now a happy resident of Queens, where I'd like to stay.

Living life as an artist, so I draw a lot, or stare at things wishing I was. Savor new experiences, like trying tasty foods, and exploring new places. Although I have a history of shyness, I tend to be quite social, comfortable conversing with many people... especially when we share a passion for creativity, comics, or faith.

What matters more than anything is my relationship with Jesus, so if you want a deep relationship with me, that's a true deal-breaker on compatibility. Dating can start casual, but I want to feel as though it has the potential to go somewhere. When it comes to significant others, I need someone who is just as (or more!) passionate about the living God and truly lives by it. Best couples I've seen are those that love and serve God even better together than they already did on their own.

Not quite sure what to make of this online dating, though I think that's true for a lot of us. Still prefer to meet people in real life, but at least this way you can learn a lot up front. Certainly learning things about myself, from answering all those questions. And enjoying the funny things that people write about themselves.
What I’m doing with my life
Collaborating with God, and trusting Him to do the heavy lifting. Excited about artistic endeavors, such as sketching for events, inventing stories, making illustrations and comics. Recently worked at a store where customers (mostly kids) paint ceramics and make creative projects. Getting to know more of my city. Spending time with people I care about. Finding ways to appreciate where I'm at, and looking forward to where I'll be.

My latest project is shamelessly promoting Carmine Street Comics. It's a fun place, so you should come by and say hi. By far the newest and coolest comic shop in New York! Friendly guys running the place who really know their stuff. Frequent signings, silly videos, and in-store artists (or writers) every day.
What could be awesomer?
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/folktales, comics and graphic novels, interviews with creatives, interesting news articles, fun fantastical fiction, art history info, theologically-minded material, random recommendations. I've 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.)

Watching: Humor, suspense, and their hilarious offspring in shows like Psych or Chuck. Romantic comedy when I can grasp at some semblance of a plot, but I'm quickly willing to suspend disbelief in favor of enjoyment. Sci-fi, cartoons, or both together like in Futurama and Trigun. Studio Ghibli, Pixar, all that good stuff. Certain types of indie film or documentary. And those 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, but sadly discontinued. Waiting for the next season of Defiance, and finally catching up on Doctor Who.

Listening: Still figuring this out. I often get set on certain songs more than bands. Unless they're friends - then I'm set on the band more than any particular song. Recently caught on a few things by Paper Route, Matt&Kim, The Killers, and Gorillaz (don't completely love 'em, but the music & animation combo's pretty catchy). Grouplove, Bastille, Capital Cities music video of Safe and Sound. One Republic's quite cool too.

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! Most incredible thing that ever happened to me.
2) Caring community. So grateful for family & friends... sorry if I'm sounding mushy, but it's too true. Yes, yes, I'll take my Oscar now.
3) A good book. Most importantly, The Good Book. Guess that has to make the list early on. It's also my "what would you take if stuck on a desert island" item.
4) Pen or pencil. Once was stranded at a rest stop, and they were surprisingly hard to find. Had to beg one off a stranger.
5) My digital camera. Best purchase I ever made, and has been 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.
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeing friends or drawing pictures. Probably both at once. Pretending to work on my comics while looking up random manga online. Going to a gallery exhibit or music show for someone I know.
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 are super-duper compatible, and you want to get to know me better. We may be dating enemies, but you want to try being friends anyway. You can wait longer than half-a-second to hear back, and won't raise your hopes too high too fast. 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.) You want to start a cool conversation and see if we can keep it going.

Just a heads up - kinda busy all the time with building my career and fixing my apartment. Communication may be spotty or non-existent, so don't get your feeling bruised over it. Probably not able to meet frequently, at first anyway, unless you're willing to jump in with two feet and join me for things I'm already doing. Or if you live nearby, it might be easy enough to step out for a bite or a drink. Always glad for a decent meal, proper conversation, and dose of out-of-the-box fun. So it may or may not be likely, but let me know if you have some good suggestions.
