My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Earth.
Bull.
INTP.
Owl.
Sapiosexual.
Kintsugi heart.
Canadian/Peruvian mestizo.
(and boy who enjoys parentheses)

Someone told me that "Lumbersexual" as a look and lifestyle is popular now. Is that a real thing? If so, my era has finally arrived...

Things I do:

I read.
I write.
I play dodgeball (basketball when there is no dodgeball around).
I sing.
I live in LA, own a house in IE, and work in OC (therefore I drive a lot).
I grew up with loving parents. (What this means is that I know how to love positively and well, an underrated skill people should look for.)

After looking up exactly where a period should go when parentheses are involved I decided on the outside for the first couple times, and then inside for the above sentence.
If you are an English language expert feel free to tell me whether or not I made correct decisions.

I always tell the truth (which some find disconcerting).
I am up for pretty much anything. Any sport. Any art or craft project. Any book. Most challenges. Most culinary adventures.
I appreciate intelligence, athleticism, artistry, and talent, however the only one thing I require out of any of my friendships is authenticity.

I'm a KPCC member. During work I listen to KPCC, but during the drive home I prefer PRX.

I have a love of sports but I much prefer playing them to watching them. If you also like to play a sport and happen to enjoy co-ed ones then perhaps we should try playing one together.

I have a love of music and writing that exceeds my love of sports. If you enjoy playing any instruments perhaps we should try building a song together. I find it is a great way to pass the time.

I have a love of reading that is my oldest and longest love. If you have a love of libraries and giant book stores and searching for books in thrift stores then we will probably get along.

I have no artistic talent (visual arts that is) to speak of, but still I like to draw things (badly) construct books (poorly) and basically undertake any kind of art project. If you like to make art and don't mind if I do it poorly alongside you then we could probably have some fun.

My existence is a blend of nerdiness/artistry/athleticism/performance/work
Some people think these things don't go together in one person. Those people are lazy.

Most of my favorite people in this world are gays and lesbians. If this bothers you go find some other boy to interact with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I'm in the middle of adapting my short stories into graphic novels with some wonderful artists.
I'm also continuing to write short stories and once I reach a pre-determined length (I've decided on a word count similar to "Dubliners") I will put them into one collection.
I'm also currently recording a new album with the songs I've written the past couple years, but rather than going into studio I'm doing a relaxed DIY version this time.

I play a lot of dodgeball in my spare time. WDS, WeHo, and Elite mostly. Some people go to church to "center" themselves. I go to dodgeball. The people are nicer and if anyone is being a dick you can totally blow them up with a vicious throw to the groin.
Full disclosure: I WILL wear tights to dodgeball tournaments. Potential significant others can choose to find this embarrassing but will be appreciated if instead they think it is hilarious and/or awesome.

I used to sing quite a bit. I spent 10 years with Winston And The Telescreen (a band you have never heard of but who was better than you are currently assuming). I retired that band because I felt less like singing and more like writing recently. That being said I still sometimes go out and play a show of some sort somewhere. And if I don't schedule a show at the very least I will sneak into a karaoke bar somewhere and sing a couple songs.
As I am naturally rather introverted this is kind of strange behavior but I just can't help it. Singing seems to be a part of me and if I go too long without it I don't feel quite right.

I work a regular job. One of those cubicle deals. It involves finance and mortgages and bankruptcies and me doing a lot of math and being very organized, which is very odd as math and organization are my two weaknesses. Oh well. It pays the bills.
This job is in Orange County.
I hate Orange County.

I am a single father.
Not one of those dudes who had a kid that the mom takes care of somewhere. A full custody no mother in the picture kind of single father.
Despite this I manage to carve out free time as my parents are quite helpful and often take her on all sorts of adventures on the weekends. Really we kind of raise her all together at this point. We are a 3 pronged parental unit and it is serving my daughter well.
My daughter is Indie Margeaux.
She is the brightest, most beautiful, nerdiest kid in existence and she is well loved by all that have met her, but it is very unlikely you would meet her anytime soon. She only meets people after it is well established that we're going to be great regular friends, or if a relationship were to become serious. I simply don't believe in bringing people I'm dating in and out of her life. You'd like her though, everyone does. But be glad about not meeting her, the word on the street is that she can be very intimidating at first...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing "Sometime around midnight" during karaoke night better then it has ever been sung in the history of existence.

Not talking about how awesome I am at every aspect of life (except Algebra and killing spiders) but then hinting at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I'm mustached at that moment, my ridiculous mustache.
If I'm bearded at that moment, my fierce beard.
If I'm surrounded by strangers, my silent intensity.
If it's a dodgeball game, they'll notice I just caught them out.
If it's on social media, they'll be shocked by my openness and honesty.
If we are having a spirited conversation and getting along, they will notice my smile. Supposedly it's a good one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Hemingway, Hesse, Kundera, Rand, Steinbeck and Orwell are some of my favorite authors.

But so are- Miller, Gaiman, Azzarello, Willingham, Morrison, Moore, Clowes

And even- Martin, Jordan, Tolkein, Lewis, Abercrombie, Rothfuss

I've got both nerdy AND geeky sides. Deal with it.
---
Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick, and PT Anderson make most of my favorite films.
---
Breaking Bad, Hell on Wheels, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Arrested Development, Eastbound and Down, Modern Family, Daily Show, 30 rock, Colbert Report and Walking Dead comprise most of my favorite shows.

(I Netflix mostly.)

But I'll also admit a love of Neon Genesis Evangelion, EscaFlowne, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Soul Eater, Avatar the last Airbender, Archer, Regular Show and Adventure Time.

I like good dramas. I also like good animation. I like good everything.
---
Radiohead, Black Keys, Bob Dylan, Bjork, Beatles, Beck, Daft Punk, Le Tigre, Arcade Fire... blah blah blah, this would take forever. All sorts of things.
---
I like food. All kinds. All cultures.
---
---
Look. I am not so awesome that I am familiar with everything that is good. If you have a suggestion I will read/watch/listen/eat it. I'm sure you know of all sorts of things I should be familiarizing myself with and I am happy to do so.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Spaces to write on.
Instruments to play.
Places to explore.
My dodgeball team and extended dodgeball family.
Bookshelves.
Indie Margeaux.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The past and the future and the present.
The best way to express the most necessary stories.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have all sorts of ways I should be spending my time.
Hopefully I'm being productive (writing, recording), and if I'm not I'm hopefully at least in good company (while playing a sport, a game, or singing some songs), and if I'm not I hopefully at least have a fast internet connection and a good show to Netflix binge on...

Friday night is one of my more available. This may be a good time to hang out with you if you are so inclined.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't believe in privacy. I believe in your right to privacy if that is what you want, but to me it's silly. As an autobiographical storyteller I have no use for it myself. I'll answer whatever you ask.
However if you need some sort of admission here... YES I DID CRY WHEN RUFIO DIED! SO WHAT!?

RIP RUFIO. :'(
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you love libraries.
If you write, be it short stories, songs, poetry or epic novels.
If you create things and enjoy getting together just so two people can work on their own projects in a shared space.
If you like to sing or at least be around singing.
If you are willing to try playing dodgeball.
If you have a love of graphic novels.
If you like to visit the ocean but prefer to go there at night.
If you can show me how to get to a waterfall.
If you have a love of weekend road trips.
If you think searching thrift stores for books and other worthwhile things is a good way to spend time.

If you feel like communicating you should just do so. I'm aware that some females prefer for males to make "the first move" but that's a dated notion. Or if that is too much then maybe just click "like" and if we both "like" each other we can start a conversation.

In the realms of "internet dating" I prefer to reciprocate what is being expressed to me. That means I have no grand design to get in your pants unless you have a grand design to get into mine. It means I go out without expectations. I am fine with making new friends. If I liked your profile it means I probably think you'd make a good one. At the same time many of these OKC interactions do become sexual, and I accept that as well because sexuality is a part of existence and I feel no judgements on the matter.
Although I would in fact like to have a committed and loving monogamous relationship in the future, I recognize that is a difficult thing for anyone to find (a 100 times more so for a single parent) and I accept that and am therefore open to other things in the meantime.

I apologize for writing so thorough a profile. I have a craving for understanding.
