My self-summary
Artsy type, in that I am an artist. Likes books, but doesn't read enough anymore. Studied philosophy. Likes paisley, ties, and overly formal menswear. Bicycles are the best form of personal transport. Arguing about ideas over food and drink is a favorite recreation. Prefers small gatherings to big parties. Long walks are the best route to mental health. tends to think things over too much. Environmentally conscious, but not doing much about it. This is kind of like cubist self representation.
What I’m doing with my life
Freelance illustrator, artist, classical bohemian. Closing in on title of #2 renovator of childhood home. Enthusiastic Uncle, but at 6 months we have yet to hit the endurance leg. It's the formula 3 of fatherhood.
I’m really good at
I'm rather good at drawing and cooking, which I'm think are probably related activities. A desired though nebulous result; multitasking, focus, a need for improvisation and correction. Usually you end up with something edible, but sometimes its just a bad drawing, sitting there on the table getting cold.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea, I would rather know what they notice about me after awhile...

Food: I recently started liking mushrooms, which is very exciting, a whole new world is open. I don't think I've met a cuisine I don't like yet, though I admit to being kind of chicken about stuff like duck feet. Something about that rubbery texture...no thanks. Anything you can put over rice and noodles, I will probably love. And spicy, always spicy.
The six things I could never do without
Blue mountain with snow and blue cold rough water--
A wild sky full of stars at rising
And Venus and the gibbous moon at sunrise.
Gulls following a motor boat against the wind,
Tress with branches rooted in air;
Sitting in the sun at noon
With the furiously smoking shadow of the shack chimney,
Eagles drive down wind in one,
Terns blow backward
A new kind of tobacco at eleven,
And my love returning on the four o'clock bus--
My God, why have you given this to us?

-Malcolm Lowry
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Art, mine in particular, but others a lot too. Anything new I have learned lately. I can be a bit of a knowledge junky and like having new things to chew over. If we are talking and I say I need to think more about a point I actually will go think about it a bunch until I decide I've figured it out. Then I will try and talk to you about it again.
On a typical Friday night I am
It's been a while since I've had a typical Friday night. What I would like to be doing is sharing a meal with friends, at an interesting show (music/dance/theatre/art/etc), or doing some couple thing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not really interested in dating with an expiry time table anymore. The idea of getting emotionally involved without the possibility of it turning into something long term and serious is unappealing. I have a busy and, to me, interesting life. It's pretty great the way it is, but it would be nice to share it. It is also very hard to make friends post school when you work from home.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–27
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If I seem like someone you'd like to talk to, or do something art oriented with.
