My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a bit shy and nerdy, but also very arts-minded. I'm originally from Michigan, came to Chicago for college, and ended up working here. I work for an art gallery in the West Loop, doing research and communications. My primary preoccupation outside of my job is working on my own art- illustration and comics, mostly. I'm outwardly very laid back, but I'm really quite passionate about creativity and learning. I am a voracious learner, and I love thoughtful and invested conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at a fine art gallery in the West Loop. I feel fortunate to work in the arts, but my real passion lies in art making rather than arts administration. I do illustration and comics on commission, and I'm working on a long-term comic project with a super cool feminist writer. I'm thinking about grad school maybe, but for now I'd like to sort of do my own thing for a while.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I tend to have a very good memory. I'm also pretty good at talking about art. I get a lot of practice, I suppose. My poached-egg technique is getting pretty close to perfect.
The first things people usually notice about me

I wear this hat a lot of the time. It's a black felt cap. I have really unruly hair, so the hat just keeps it under control. Became a habit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Coen Brothers are probably my favorite directors. Some of my favorite films include Dawn of the Dead (the original), Unbreakable, Brazil, A Serious Man, Ghost in the Shell, Blade Runner, Branded to Kill, Black Narcissus, Barton Fink, the Three Colors Trilogy, and Holy Mountain. I'm also a huge animation nut, so I'll gladly watch just about anything animated, any time.

Thanks to Netflix, I'm constantly finding good TV though. I have the habit of listening to television while I'm working on my art. I love Mad Men, The Venture Brothers, Pushing Daisies, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Star Trek: TNG, Farscape, Battlestar Galactica, Freaks & Geeks, Carnivale, Cowboy Bebop, and Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Books? Kobo Abe, Tennyson, Poe, Shelley, Blake, Pessoa, Mishima, Melville, Baudelaire, some classical epics (The Ramayana, Die Nibelungen, etc.), some classic scifi here and there, Baudrillard, Kafka. I'm trying to read more non-fiction, particularly relevant to the history of art.

I read a lot of comics and graphic novels too- Like A Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, The Nikopol Trilogy, Koko Be Good, GOGO Monster, Seven Soldiers of Victory, Akira, Bone, Love & Rockets, I Kill Giants, Sexy Voice & Robo, everything Geof Darrow, Grant Morrison's Hypersigil Trilogy, Cybersix, and plenty more.

I can appreciate a lot of different kinds of music, though, I primarily listen to a few kinds. I like a lot of post-punk/new-wave music from the 80s like Depeche Mode and Bauhaus. I periodically listen to contemporary alternative folk and country, like Sixteen Horsepower or Chelsea Wolfe. I also have lately been listening to a lot of hip-hop, particularly Run The Jewels and Freddie Gibbs.

I love food in general. I have opinions on good and bad, but I can't bring myself to claim favorites on styles of cuisine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Intelligent conversation.
2. Optimism, hope for the future.
3. Good memory.
4. Creative outlets.
5. A library card.
6. CTA card.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My brain goes everywhere. It sounds stupid to express it this way, but I love thinking. I suppose it's why I love conversation, because it's also a way to explore and work through ideas.

I think a lot about my art, and my future. Society. People. Big ideas, little ideas. I think a lot about a lot of things, and I'm always thinking. Post-war Japanese literature, Vedic myths, hermetic alchemy, comic book theory, continental philosophers, the role of the artist, patriarchy and cultural hegemony, scifi technology, character designs, evolution of fictional creatures... The list is always growing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately I've been taking Fridays kind of easy. I love hitting galleries, trying new restaurants, seeing movies, etc. but for the past few months I've been spending Fridays after work at the gym, then home to draw comics and watch movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have basically no arch in my eyebrows at all, and I'm sort of self-conscious about it. The arch exists, but it's too blonde to see.
