I'm a fairly casual guy who very passionately strives to make art and music in a town where there are way too many non-functional, alcoholic sociopaths, who dress like cool artists, but in fact all they really do is drink and try to get laid. It's rather boring and gross. Since the Olympia art/music (ALCOHOL!) scene is too cool for school, I spend most of my free time alone, or with my trusted band mates, (Best friends) working on my crafts. At least when I'm not at school working my ass off. I like to laugh and I love to make others laugh. l smoke weed when l feel like it, which does nothing to hinder any of my passions and or abilities. Oh, and I like to exercise everyday. I've been single for a very long time, by choice, and I feel like it's time for that to change. Looking for someone genuine who might actually care about me, which would be kind of a first in my life. (At least romantically.)
What I’m doing with my life
Besides attending Evergreen... I am focused on music and art. Currently I am working on a series of comics, as well as the occassional flyer, or album art for someone's band. Also still working on a series of highly detailed illustrations using the outdated Microsoft Paint program and mousepad. Fuck you photoshop and light pens! ;) Musically I always have a couple projects going at once, (Chalk it up to being an experienced drummer. Apparently we are a rare and elusive breed...) Right now l feel exceptionally lucky to be playing in a band with really excellent musicians, who also just so happen to be humble, down to earth, and don't give any fucks about the "Olympia music scene". Also, I have been regularly exercising and eating healthy for a little over a year now. Trying to get back in shape and feel healthy... and it's totally working!
I’m really good at
I've been an artist since before I can remember, and I have played drums in experimental rock groups for16 years now. I also love to write, read, listen and learn. Also, l've been playing video games since l was 3, and consider myself a genuine gamer, because l fucking love it. That being said, l don't play all the time like most people. They serve as a stimulating reward for downtime, after l've done my work, and spent time on my true passions. Still though, if you hate video games, we just won't be compatable.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably, possibly, maybe that I can suddenly go from a bit shy, to completely confident and full of snappy banter. I also think that many people notice physical traits first, so they might be thinking, "He's about as ugly as they come!" or even possibly, "He's not too shabby..." really, who am I to know? Oh, and hopefully I was able to make them laugh which is something I get huge personal satisfaction in doing and I'm completely selfish about because let's face it, it's a win-win. So yeah, hopefully they leave thinking I'm somewhat funny and not a depressed sack of moldy tangerines. I think it's also important for you to know that l'm not easily offended and l'm not worried about offending. l might cross a line for the prudish and overly politically correct folks out there, although l'm not thoughtless about this and understand there is a time and a place. Still in good taste, it's all about context and present company...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Shows: Once again, way to many even though I don't watch "television". Thank you interwebs....

I love all kinds of music, though I still have very specific tastes. I stray from generic, not just music, but everything...
The six things I could never do without
Love, happiness, music, art, family, change...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
concepts for stories I write, musical ideas, other people, and in general, daily craziness. There's a lot more going on upstairs that l reserve for those who get to know me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing music, hanging with friends, walking and jogging, rollin
around a parking lot near my house on a skate board, working, or
relaxing watching movies or playing games...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been single and pretty damn lonely for many years. More than I
would like to admit. It used to bother me and messed with my
self-confidence, but now I don't care. I will either meet a great
gal who loves me back, or I won't. The trick is to not let
loneliness make you bitter, and I only know that from experience.
That being said, I'm a happy confident person. I have hope and I
strive for my goals...
You should message me if
You are not a completely material person. If you like comic books,
fantasy, and film, fun, and laughter. Comedy is great! So great in
fact that I find it to be very healing and good for the soul.
Please message me if you have any great music you'd like to share.
If you would like to create art or music with me. I am looking for
someone special who wants to be with someone special and take their
time doing it. Doesn't mean we can't be romantic during that
process, but I would like it based off of a strong, fun filled
friendship. That probably sounds cheesy, but I don't care, it's the
