My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a Masters degree in making comic books and I get really excited about using rollover buttons to tell semi-interactive stories.

Sooo yeah. You can probably extrapolate from that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the moment I'm a freelance illustrator. I quit my crappy day job last year to save my sanity and this seemed like the next logical choice, believe it or not. Since then I've decided it's not for me, at least not yet. Never say never.

So I spend my time job hunting and working on passion projects when I'm not paying the bills. It's a weird feeling for me. Up until recently I would have told you I had a lot of direction and was very goal oriented, but now? Now I kind of just want to make cool things and read books.

I do have a graphic novel coming out in 2015 from Oni Press (same folks as Scott Pilgrim), so maybe that gets me more work in comics someday? That would be a dream job for me.

I also run a lot. You know those really annoying people who love to talk about new things they're trying with their fitness routine? That's me. Sometimes I hear myself and wonder when I became this person.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drawing, running, using big words in conversation accidentally, being enthusiastic about those three things, and totally not being slightly stiff and awkward when talking to attractive women.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the really curly hair, or the shameless dancing when I'm listening to music on the CTA.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The best book I read recently was The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which was incredible! I've also recently read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and The Poisonwood Bible, and I reread Good Omens for the umpteenth time. I love books, and I'll probably talk your head off about them.

I watch superhero movies as much as you might expect. I also had a great time at Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Dear White People, and The Wind Rises. I just got a copy of The Iron Giant for Christmas. I'm ashamed I didn't own it before.

Futurama is still great. So is Doctor Who, and South Park, and I watch the Daily Show a lot.

I'm alternating between Howlin' Wolf and Dinah Washington right now. Plus Jack White, and Daft Punk, and Cage the Elephant, and Lupe Fiasco, and so on. I'll spare you the list.

I love carbohydrates- pancakes, bread, cookies, all kinds of baked goods- but I try to stay healthy for running so I don't eat them as much as I'd like.

For the record, this thing doesn't ask about favorite comics, but if you aren't reading Saga right now you should know it's amazing. I'm also reading a lot of X-men, and Octopus Pie, and a million other things. Ask me to recommend something. I'll get you hooked.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Drawing stuff, running shoes, a good book, twenty dollars and the train. That's also a description of my favorite kind of day!

I'm also pretty proud of the fact that I actually sleep regularly and for a healthy length of time. That's not easy for most of us these days.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to balance the work I love with the ever present need for money. Not very original, maybe, but tried and true.

The difference between being successful and being happy. Both would be nice, but if I had to choose I know which one I'd pick.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At this point I'm probably working, but it's not as lame as it sounds. When other people say that they're often trying to push a project out the door in a job they're passionate about. My situation is the same, except I'm drawing zombies while I do it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You're probably way cooler than me. The bar isn't that high.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Straight talk: I'm looking for someone to relax with. The past few years have been pretty crazy and that doesn't show much sign of stopping any time soon, so I'd like my personal life to be about being happy and not about being exciting.

Let's get together and go camping or take a class or watch movies, and have lots of lazy post exercise sex. Let's not try to be a power couple or stay busy just for the sake of being busy. Life does that just fine all on its own.
