I love complex and intellectual things like philosophy, psychology, language, art, neuroscience, anatomy, martial arts, game design... as well as the outdoors, nature, and animals. I've been dubbed 'beastmaster' as per my down-to-earthness with all creatures and Saint Francis because I save every bug out of a swimming pool before I jump in. My sense of humor is dark, very dark- I could probably challenge you to offend me- and I'm definitely one of the healthiest people you'll ever meet. I love sharing music.
My sincere preference is to explore the greater meaningful ideas in life, about the cosmos, about existence, about consciousness and perspective- and this often means getting away from all the noise of our culture. I actively enjoy avoiding the herd. Thinking about myself thinking about myself thinking about myself has become exhausting, and a good remedy has always been walking into the Coolidge Corner theater in Brookline, picking a movie I've never heard of based on the poster, and relaxing to watch in the cool dark. I mellow out with a few close friends from time to time, offering what I can for deep-thinking discussions before letting loose and backflipping away again into the sunset. Most people know me for being a visual artist, being in super good shape, or being intellectually deep, but as T.S Eliot said, "a kiss is a better fate than wisdom."
I went to school to make art for games; drawing, digital illustration, 2D & 3D graphics & animation, interface design, all that awesome stuff.
However, I honestly hate the idea of spending my life sitting in front of a screen.
Believe in yourself, and create your own destiny. Don't fear failure.
