Living in weird times in the Bay Area. Living life, making art, working hard, and making sure I enjoy it and find passion and enjoyment out of it all. Godzilla Whisperer, huge geek about certain things, equal parts meditation, spiritual expansion and crass humor, savage outlook. Big picture but an eye for detail. I love art, writing, film, and food deeply, as well as making fun of the world and myself and everything else around me. I work hard, I am grateful to be alive, I can be intense in ways and chill in others. I am in a rad open relationship, honest and communicative. I am kink positive, naturally more of a Dominant but sometimes am into switching and also areas of kink that have nothing to do with these archetypes, I would love to meet people new and interested to veterans in these matters as well. I find rope bondage to be amazing but have no experience with it yet. Mentally, sexually and emotionally exploring open & to a lot of people, places and things.
What I’m doing with my life
Eating Amaebi with the heads fried. Uni research. Working hard as fuck in the studio making art, preparing for shows, applying to residencies, updating things, researching Japanese art history, thinking about the Kiskaido and how to start a new series dealing with it in the present day. Planning to go back to the south where I am originally from and do research and make art. I have been reading more as of late, watching films from other lands, walking a lot, a whole lot, everywhere. Oh and wanting to find people to go see weird movies in the theatre or at home, to draw or draw with (sometimes doing strange, funny, or erotic things), preparing for what comes next and also enjoying the present. Oh and Painting, I am painting. Oh and finding places in Chinatown Oakland that make my stomach and mind very, very happy.
I’m really good at
I definitely have skills in certain departments that have gotten me this far.
I can draw you, I can cook, I can make you laugh, I can over think things, I can also simplify and just go, I can summon familiars, and much more. Some other things in the bed room.
I am actually a really good driver. I am good at public speaking and getting you excited or making you blush.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am like a young good looking Santa Clause, I bare gifts. For real, I do, I bare gifts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I live, I read, I eat, I listen, I watch and I think, enjoy, critique, and feel, and then I keep doing it. Akira, True Detective, anything that makes me laugh, Ghostbusters (which is actually a brilliantly written smart New York movie), Guardians of the Galaxy, Aeon Flux (Liquid Television, not the whack live action movie), Urotsukidoji, The Big Lebowski, Synecdoche New York, Jardowsky's Dune, DOPE, Kumiko the Treasure Hunter, anything by Kurosawa, its hard to even begin this section.
Jazz, Rap, Hip Hop, Rock, Hardcore, Post Punk/Hardcore, Drum n Bass, Classical, Blues, Soul, R&B, there is so much good music in the world that we will just have to listen and vibe out to it together instead of me listing it here. I am very open to all kinds of music. Bjork, Joy Division, Wu-Tang, Dipset, PK 14, Miles Davis, DJ Shadow, Cibo Matto, The Funky Meters, Biggie, Helmet, old Ice Cube, Gangstarr, Pia, Merging Moon, even Kanye to Quicksand to Dinosaur Jr. to Nina Simone.
I am currently slowly reading and reflecting on the Keith Haring Journals. I just bought a volume of famous collected artist interviews by Michael Pippiat, the Francis Bacon and Frank Auerbach ones are so sick so far. Old Marvel TPB collections, history books...
I watch, or listen to, a lot of Documentaries while I paint and make art, ranging from the Mongol Empire to Mafia Heists to Famous Artist Bios to Famous Historical Leaders to War History to Food Documentaries to documentaries on Buddhism, etc...
Anthony Bourdain is kind of my hero currently. If you think he is an asshole, as many people I have met in California seem to think, I would love to talk and hear why and explain from a New Yorker stand point why I disagree hahaha. Oh and I just rewatched Princess Mononoke again recently and love that movie!
The six things I could never do without
A place and the means to make art
Things that make me laugh
Moments of clarity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to convey unspoken things that exist not only in this physical reality in my paintings and work.
Things I am working on and want to see come together in the future. Painting.
How to make that thing that just happened into something funny.
That hilarious thing that just happened.
Where I want to work next
Why is Blade Runner possibly the best Sci-Fi movie ever made.
What you are thinking about.
How certain foods taste so perfect.
Why I can't find real Bagels in Cali (I know why, but I still think about it)
Intimacy and connection.
Hot crazy sex.
Rope Bondage, D/s, Power Exchange, Sexual Fulfillment
Eroticism, Porn vs art/ porn art
What I am grateful for.
That hilarious part of Step Brothers, oh wait that was the whole fucking movie.
How to be true to myself and make art that I believe in.
What am I going to do for fun and eat in the near future.
Traveling, traveling, and more traveling (often with projects in mind).
On a typical Friday night I am
Don't have a typical Friday night, lets get together and see what we can make of it. I am pretty much willing to try just about anything once (I am for real, and just about). Depending on how insane the week was, we will find something good to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One time I colored myself purple head to toe before they made washable magic markers as a child and my mom came home and I said, "Look mom, I'm a grape." and she fainted. It took two weeks to scrub the marker off.
You should message me if
You know who you are well enough to live an independent and drama free life. You are happy with who you are (we are always evolving in this way, it's called growth). You have a solid sense of humor, don't take yourself too seriously, and can be calm as well as passionately intense. You are open, comfortable in your own skin, and can communicate about sex and intimacy, express your desires and wants and boundaries, and get off on honesty and emotional maturity. You are creative in your own ways, are kind of weird. You are grateful for your life and life in general, you don't have major entitlement issues, you are compassionate and possess empathy. You are cool with someone who has a pretty crazy schedule, is sober and does work a program to make sure he (I) stays that way and is highly creative, is very passionate, and who can be rather blunt. You have kind of a chill, nerdy, side, have funny guilty pleasures, and you think we would have a really good time together.
