My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
if you want to see the art I create, check out the art folder in my photos section.... And if you aren't able to see it, it's because phone apps don't support this. Use a browser. I'll see about reactivating my Instagram feed.

I moved to California xmas 2007, pursuing a love connection just after splitting from an LTR of several years in Virginia. Despite a strong physical and emotional bond, the reason for the split was because my love for art was not shared, nor did I care for her passion of rescuing countless animals. To each their own, but a partnership with no common ground can be so lonesome.

The love connection I found in California did not last long, since the entire country was in a state of shock from the recession, just after I had chosen to switch coasts and look for work out here. Using my savings, I explored Central and Southern Cali until 2010, and finally turned north where I immediately fell in love with the redwoods. I'm now settled here with deep roots, awesome friendships, and a comfy lifestyle.

Although I date often enough (every few months), I have not been so lucky in the pursuit of an artistic mate. (Because I know exactly what I'm looking for, I turn to dating sites, and art openings, not bars)

I see rare but extraordinary examples in the world, Julie Bell and Boris Valejo, Titus Lunter and Suzanne Helmigh, and so many more of my friends, already coupled. I'm not sure what causes such a rareness of availability of an artistic woman... perhaps they are simply too talented and amazing to ever be single. Or maybe just too busy being creative.

I'm not just seeking such a particular love for status. I ache to have some common ground with a partner. I long to have deep conversations about the stories I write and illustrate, as well as the themes may prospective partner will surely explore.

I am athletic and good looking in the dark and mysterious kind of way, young at heart, wise beyond my ears, funny in a punny way, and not too shy to admit well endowed. I realize that what I'm looking for is quite rare, so I am open to short term dating... because who knows? The only way to grow is to experience life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a full time job, 8-5 weekdays, remodeling older houses. I can build craftsman style houses entirely from scratch. My focus is on finish cabinetry.

In my spare time, I paint fantasy art. My work has been described as dream like, ethereal. I often paint mountainscapes, seascapes, sunsets, starscapes... and every painting begins with cloudscapes. I also sculpt and paint characters. I don't have enough time or wall space to paint with traditional media, so most of my work is digital.

I ride my bike often and with purpose... Too many bad drivers for long distance rides though. Would love to find a converted rail trail.

I've recently taken up disc golf at a course near my home, so far running the 27 hole course in 45 minutes following a steep 10 minute uphill bike climb to the course.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a visual thinker with a genius level IQ. Nothing is impossible for me. Except swimming. (I sink like a rock)
I regularly approach challenges of inventing futuristic concepts for the graphic novel I'm working on.
More down to earth, I'm a natural gardener, handy man, and reliable ear to bend.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This list is long and diverse. I'll update later... The more you like, the more I'll like you.

Movies
The Dark Crystal was the first movie I saw in the theater... I fell asleep while the Gelflings were dreamfasting... And they may have connected to me! If there is one story that could describe my soul, this is it. Thank you for your incredible vision Jim Hensen.
Other films/movies/anime...
Thanks to Tolkien, Kubric, James Cameron, Ridley Scott, Lucas, Wachowski, Spielburg, Verhoeven, David Lynch, and of course Joss Whedon!
Mushi Shi- like campfire ghost stories, set in Japan
Miyazaki- master story teller!
Ghost In the Shell, Animatrix, Xam'd, Rin, Last Exile...
Old but great: Dungeons & Dragons satuday morning cartoon, Robotech
And special thanks to Weird Al, proving to the world that turtles are nature's suction cups, and poodles can fly (with practice).

Music
I prefer to learn new music, and wish to make my own. I don't habitually listen to music- this allows my mind to more easily reflect my emotions through random lyrics that pop into my head. (My spirit sings)
Music I grew up with, and will forever love- Dead Can Dance. Even in my deepest meditative states, I will keep Lisa Gerard's vocal ambience in the background.
Other music:
Industrial, Space Ambient, Tribal/Drum, World Music, and the mockingbirds outside my window.
Techno/dance/dub when friends rallied me to be their DD back home from raves in New Orleans.
Tool's album Lateralus is especially motivating when I paint about dystopias... Usually accompanied by Fear Factory, Autumn, and various pseudo alternative but really pop metal.
Basil Poledouris for cyborg themes, as well as sword and sorcery.
The Strokes, and most of the music from Burnout 3, when I want to just drive.
And for nostalgia, the complete soundtrack to Ys. (No, not Yes)

Books are terrifyingly slow for such a busy busy mind.
Colonizing the Galaxy in Eight Easy Steps by Marshal Savage
Robota by Orson Scott Card and illustrated by Doug Chiang
The Man Who Planted Trees by Jean Giano - the short film is great, and so is the audio version with piano accompaniment.
The Celtic Lunar Zodiac
I gave away all the books I had, because I'd read them, and I had been moving around too much at the time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Big juicy burger
Greek style yogurt and berries, figs, with cacao
Corriander/cilantro, savory herbs
Ice cream and chocolates
Sweet corn
Zucchini
Tree kale
So much food to love!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why did iPods sell so well, when everyone is completely capable of playing any music they have ever heard directly from their brain?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This is more of a chore day for me, cleaning tools from the car, groceries... Etc.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I prefer to just meet and have a simple conversation over coffee/tea. Why would anyone judge a person on how well they write, when we all know that it's all about that gut feeling, mystery, and butterflies. Meet me downtown Santa Cruz at either Pergalesi's or Lulu's on the weekend. I'll be painting something, like a fantasy landscape, on my laptop, so just ask to see what I'm painting. I'm really only interested in women who enjoy art, a huge passion in my life, that I hope to share with a partner. If I'm not there, I'm on a date or being social with friends. If my profile dissappears, I'm pursuing someone and want to see where it goes.
