My self-summary
Let's take a moment to reflect on the important things:
http://sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4371

Life has become terrifyingly complicated of late, as opposed to my more traditional status of "absurdly complicated." I am looking for people to talk to, and I am flexible about where things go from there.
What I’m doing with my life
Grad School consumes my life for the present, into the foreseeable future. I am an artist and an educator, working primarily in digital media and Video Game Design. I love art and stories and the infinite weirdness and endless possibilities of the universe I am fortunate enough to occupy.

Once upon a time, I had a mostly positive experience meeting some very cool people through this site. I suppose I am hoping things go as well or better the second time around :D I live in Baltimore, where I help my sister take care of my Mother (a recovering stroke victim) and Grandfather. Along the way I continue to grapple with my MFA Thesis, my work as a Game Design Instructor, and occasionally a Production Consultant. I am not much of a gamer, but I am a bit in love with the potential of the medium to deliver stories and experiences and maybe even save the world a little bit.

My life is very much in process, but I hope to have a family of my own someday. In the meantime, I have something like a hundred kids, and they are all in school :P I get a lot of fulfillment out of teaching and helping folks pursue their dreams. I am not holding my breath for OKC to miraculously steer me towards my perfect match, but I am hopeful that somewhere along the way I will bump into somebody whose flavor of crazy gels with my own brand of madness :D
I’m really good at
Talking about and/or explaining things. - I am a teacher so this works out well. I am basically paid to talk and explain things all day long.

Making cool things. -Specifically this refers to storytelling, sculpture, and other art based cool things, which I have spent my life learning how to make. I will admit however that it readily extends to cooking, crafting and MacGuyvering in general.

Stories. It has been brought to my attention that I may be made entirely out of them! This is sort of a handy extension of making cool things, that lets me find a real joy in finding out where new people have been and where they are going.

Also? Cats. I am very good at cats.
The first things people usually notice about me
Are probably not the same things that I notice them noticing about me.

Let's see -

- I have a tendency to wear silly hats, both personally and professionally.
- I am a reasonably big guy and I can be appropriately bombastic and animated, perhaps even... Piratical?
- My features may strike some folks as unconventional or "exotic" as a result of my thoroughly mutt-like heritage [but at least I have nice hair ;) ]
- Most Dogs seem to observe that I am the largest cat they have ever seen, and react accordingly.

Maybe I should offer something like those customer feedback cards? What is the first thing YOU [Yes, you!] noticed about me?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Of this much I am certain,
I will like some of the same things as you.
I will dislike some of the same things as you.
I will dislike some things that you like.
I will like some things that you dislike.
Example-
Really into the works of Niel Gaiman, and I thoroughly enjoy Doctor Who.
There is not enough booze on earth to make Stephanie Meyers' writing good, and I just can't get into Game of Thrones (TV Show, not the books - which I haven't read.)

For almost everything else I have a rather varied and eclectic set of likes and dislikes. I will try almost anything once, sometimes twice and not infrequently a third time just to make sure I know what its like. It seems better to me to like things than dislike them so...

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about how no matter how many variations I write in these profile boxes, all I can do is show off a portion of who I am and what I think about. I hope I represent myself well.

Does my openness to the possibility of spiritual phenomena in my life warrant the contempt and writing off that seems implicit in the profiles of otherwise cool self identified athiests?

OKC seems to think I match with a great many charming ladies in the medical profession or some manner of lawyering. I don't know much what to make of this, but I cant help but wonder...
... Does OKC think I need a sugar momma?

I also think about how at any moment, someone might be reading my thoughts or watching what I do. That makes me think that I should always do my best to think through things so I can stand behind my thoughts words and deeds without shame or regret.
On a typical Friday night I am
Discussing theoretical metaphysics with my large fluffy cat. Hunting Ghosts. Searching for Buried Treasure. Pulling the crime of the century. Fighting the Axis Powers. Saving the world.

What have you done lately?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It is in point of fact almost certain that if you have upon your profile a picture of yourself being stupid with a cat, that I shall rate you 4-5 stars on Quickmatch. I am a poster child for the proven correlation between cat proximity and inanity of statements.

I also sing: In the event of an emergency I am prepared to bust out some Gilbert & Sullivan, or Journey at a moment's notice, but it is a secret so please keep it to yourself.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–35
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You probably just should. I enjoy talking to new people. But here are some popular excuses:

-You like sharing experiences and wish to trade stories.
-You want to exchange hilarious and adorable pictures of cats.
-You desire a partner or consultant for your world domination plans.
-You like talking about art.
-You want someone to watch Pixar and Miyazaki movies, and/or rant about Video Games with.
-You require the services of a professional exorcist.
-You are coming to terms with your recently awakened mutant super-powers and are looking for guidance through this difficult time.
-You dig Science, or alternately: SCIENCE!!!
-You are looking for advice on how to make your world altering and brilliant idea for a video game, movie, novel, or epic poem into a reality, or are seeking cooking tips.
-You like my hat and want to know where you can get one just like it.

...oh, and I suppose if you found my profile interesting and wanted to get to know me better, that would be groovy too.

Cheers!
