My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a smart, outdoorsy, bookish artist.
I'm talkative, quiet, funny, and serious.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
What am I doing with my life? Well, I've been making art, of the old-school painting & drawing variety, for most of it, and that's more or less the whole story. When I'm not making art, and not doing something ignominious to pay the rent so I can make even more art, I'm generally hanging out with my friends, running in Redwood park, burrowing into a pile of books, or tackling a wall at Berkeley Ironworks. I'm usually killing two or three of these birds with one stone.

While I'd love to meet someone who loves drawing as much as I do, or is as infatuated with indoor rock climbing as I am, I especially want to meet someone who will teach me all about something about which I know next to nothing, except that I want to know more. Biology? Tango? Cooking? Tell me more...

It's hard to narrow down my favorite books to a workable list as I have a couple thousand around the house, but this should give you an idea:
Infinite Jest. Probably my favorite book of all time, and, not coincidentally, the funniest book I've ever read.
The Golden Gate by Vikram Seth. I keep rereading this.
Darwin's Dangerous Idea. Haven't quite finished it, but if I was going to point to one book and say, this is how I think the world works, this would be the one.
Dr. Seuss. The complete works.
Comics! Not the men-in-tights stuff. Think Love & Rockets, Chris Ware, 70's French SF, old newspaper strips...

Right now I'm reading Jane Austen for the first time. Why did I wait so long?

Anything by the Coen Brothers, Miyasaki, Pixar, Wong Kar Wai, or Michel Gondry will send me running to the theater. I also like seeing old movies at the Castro or the Paramount, whether it's a Kurosawa or Antonioni movie I've never seen, or Casablanca one more time. I rarely watch TV, but I'll occasionally blow through a series on DVD. I've watched The Wire, Freaks & Geeks, and The (English) Office all straight through twice.

Prince, James Brown, Melvins, LCD Soundsystem, Kraftwerk, The Velvet Underground, Yo La Tengo, D'Angelo, The Beatles, Brian Eno, metal, funk, synthpop, bollywood, and on and on and on...
My favorite album is "Colossal Youth" by the Young Marble Giants

Alas, I'm not a foodie. However, I do get positively giddy at the thought of Japanese or Indian food! And, man, Yamo, Mission Chinese, oh man, so good...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The literal "things" I can't live without are my:
Sketchbook
Bicycle
iphone
However, I really believe that the best things in life aren't things, and those things are:
My friends
Nature
Making art
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have a typical Friday night.
Depending on the week, I could be:

Going to gallery openings,
Climbing at the gym,
At a life drawing session,
Out on the town with my friends,
At home reading.

I wish more of my Fridays involved dancing!

I don't like cheese. Shocking, I know...
