Hello there! Before I get into details here, let me just start with a general statement in saying that I'm pretty much the stereotypical "shy artist" when first meeting people, but I do tend to open up as I get to know you. I think my closest friends would likely describe me to be someone who is kind, with a generally laid back personality. Don't get me wrong though, I only respect those who deserve to be respected, treating others as they would like to be treated themselves - in other words, it has to be mutual. I'm also an aspiring artist with a strong passion for the subject, having graduated from Cal State Fullerton with my BFA degree. If I see in your profile that you enjoy creating artwork yourself, I may even message you asking to see some of your work out of sheer interest in seeing how you express yourself through your own work.
If anyone's interested, I'll provide a link to a collection of some of my best work: http://s804.photobucket.com/albums/yy322/HRArtist/
To be completely honest, I never thought I'd have to resort to online dating, but I thought I'd give it a go as I have nothing to lose. I feel I'm mostly attracted to women with a 'bubbly' yet sophisticated personality - someone who is most always smiling, appreciates romantic gestures, nurturing, caring, able to have deep conversations, open-minded and is overall a good-hearted person. Of course, you can count on me to reciprocate. :) After all, love and friendships are what I live for and my greatest motivation in life.
Random interesting fact about me: I'm half Irish and half Japanese. Due to this odd combination, I have natural black hair but my facial hair grows out a crimson color. I've had a customer come up and ask me at my old job if I actually dye my goatee :P.
Should anyone care for further details, I can elaborate more through messages.
