My self-summary
I'm a nice guy, with a sense of humor, a penchant for plaid, a sucker for a cocktail or beer, and when the mood strikes me, a flexible dancer. I like to go for runs, travel, watch movies, draw, take road trips and hang with friends. Despite the industry I work in, I'm not fancy, I'm a little nerdy, and I LOVE watching soccer (when I get the chance).

I'm originally from Santa Barbara, Ca which means I'm forever a Westcoast guy at heart.

My favorite articles of clothing are hooded sweatshirts and coats. I love cooking, but not for myself. I prefer dive bars to upscale (though it's definitely fun to dress up sometimes), brunch to dinner, seafood to meats, and I could eat Mexican food just about every day.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Visual Merchandiser for a luxury brand and I am working hard to bring balance to my personal life. I travel a lot; there's never a dull moment and I don't spend much time at home. Would love to establish a close group of gay friends and someone to come home to or share my time with.
I’m really good at
All things creative. Also activities like wine drinking & bourbon drinking I happen to be pretty good at too.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my eyes, my tattoos?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- I try to only purchase hardcover (because one day I want a library of the books I've read...this makes moving a BITCH (heavy ass boxes). I tend to like fiction or rock n roll autobiographies: The Historian, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Guillermo del Toro & Chuck Hogan's The Strain Trilogy, The Demonologist, Potter series, LOTR series, all the Anne Rice Vampire and Witches series, Call of the Wild, To Kill A Mockingbird, Motley Crue The Dirt, Anthony Keidis Scar Tissue, Anthony Bourdain books...etc. Also, my guilty pleasure used to be comic books (Marvel) because for quite a while I wanted to go into comic illustration and color.

Music, I like Indie (folk&rock), hiphop, 80's, 60's, r&b, piano and guitar. I like The Killers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT, The Raveonettes, Lana Del Rey, The Rosebuds, Ryan Gosling's Dead Man's Bones, Emily Jane White, Sleep Station, Flo + the Machine, The Shins, The Black Keys, Beach House, Alabama Shakes, Sleigh Bells, DAVID BOWIE (LOOOVE), Fiona Apple, Coldplay, Fleetwood Mac, Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu, Mariah Carey, Biggie, Salt N Pepa, Pharrell Williams, Nicki Minaj (since 2007, thank you very much), Kelis.

I either like my music dark and brooding, or something I can dance to.

Movies: I like a lot of genres. I especially like Horror, and I have a weird fondness for movies that take place in space or deep under water (Alien, The Abyss, Prometheus, Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Event Horizon, Sphere, etc...

My favorite feel good movies are Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Empire Records, and 200 Cigarettes.

Television: I don't have cable and if I watch shows, it's only on Netflix or Hulu. Right now my favs are Quantico and Scream Queens
The six things I could never do without
The clichés:

Family
Dogs
A pen and paper
Travel
Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just recently started feeling that it would be nice to meet someone to share time with, travel with, and have a relationship with. I've been independent and focused on work for so long now that I've hit my mid 30's, I'm starting to feel that itch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wine at home or a stiff cocktail out with some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My co-workers call me Maleficent
You should message me if
You want to.
