My self-summary
I would like to pretend I'm a international man of conspicuous leisure, but in reality I'm a part time self deprecating jokester with a INFJ/INFP personality.

Originally from South Florida, I still question why I would leave it to freeze up north. I lived in Philadelphia and now currently still live relatively close to it.

Note: Not to be such a square, but I'm Straight Edge, which is a much...uh edgier way of abstain from drinking/smoking/or drugs....(sounds of a thousand doors suddenly closing)

Also if your a follower of the "Big Five Personality" I'm...
High on Openness
Below average on Conscientiousness
Below average on Extroversion
Extremely high on Agreeableness
High on Neuroticism
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I'm wandering the earth as a freelance cinematographer/videographer/DP/gaffer/grip/AC/PA//DIT/editor
/photographer/actor in the Philadelphia Tri-state

If your interested in seeing some of my work here is my demo reel

Making really fast quips, being clumsy and yet having things fall into place.
The first things people usually notice about me
My pompadour hair, preppy dress style, Oh and the fact I'm ridiculously thin.

Oh geez, I just realized my list looks like something from the Criterion Collection, but I don't care.

Overall, I like psychological thrillers, dramas, westerns, sci fi, and documentaries.

Also if you listen to any Punk, Post-Rock, New Wave, No Wave, Vaporwave, Bossanova, Goth, Disco, House, Synthpop, Trip-Hop, Ambient, Baroque, and Rockabilly

I'm a big news junkie, I routinely follow twitter feeds, podcast feeds, Ap feeds, ticker tape feeds, but I'll just end up ignoring them to watch trashy reality shows and the Young and the Restless.

Despite my almost malnourished build, I actually do eat!
I usually prefer Mediterranean and Latin cuisine, and occasionally I venture into vegetarian diets.
The six things I could never do without
Pretty much I could walk away from everything, so long as I have my backups of my work, my camera collection, and my childhood monkey puppet I grew up with. The simple things really.

I also have in my possession, a oak chair with demons and serpents carved on it. oil paintings from Italy, Hindu artifacts from India, African tribal masks, Hopi kachina dolls, tapestry and quilts from Mexico, many crystals and new age devices, a whole bunch of useless awards, and a industrial silk-screening press.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Articles from left leaning blogs, how most economic commentators are just clueless fortune tellers. How to achieve certain "looks" for use in my work. That I should learn how to play the violin or the harpsichord.

How I should get back into playing tennis. If I could handle learning to fly a plane. How horrible of a screenwriter Ayn Rand was, If me being a western/white/cis/thin/male/meat eater on this planet makes me somewhat a terrible person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking pictures of interesting people on the street, If I feel really fancy I'll go out to a basement show or watch art films at a matinee with a bunch of retirees.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Plenty, I will reveal though I have a bad habit of giving funny voices to animals. Also I sometimes wear mascara, but instead of being seductive I just look like a insomniac.
You should message me if
"I ain't no lumpen proletariat, and I ain't no petty bourgeoisie
But I'm gonna be a cold corpse, if you don't run here to me"

At this point I'm just looking for someone to tag around with at shows, try to figure out postmodern art, and make fun of Lifetime films with.

I usually never make the first attempt at messaging, and because it seems most people here do the same, I guess all we can do is just stare at our profiles in wishful silence.
