My self-summary
I'm a born and raised Oregonian, but I've moved back and forth betwixt here and Los Angeles numerous times. Went to film school down there and spent the better part of the last seventeen years doing varied entertainment industry work. It's a strange, delusional world, but I love it.

I'm a pretty laid-back guy, but I enjoy a good debate.

I have a dry sense of humour, but I'm not a bitter person.

I don't recall what my INFJP-whatever test results were, but I know it started with I, not E.

I took a year off from my life and career to take care of my grandpa, who is an amazing person. I became a cribbage fiend during this time, and I will talk mad shit if we ever play.

I would rather find someplace good without a long wait to eat than eat someplace cool that will take forever to get into.

I'm a romantic idealist.

I often do stop to smell the flowers, and always cop a feel on rosemary and lavender bushes as I pass by so that I can smell them too.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in the local entertainment biz.

I just bought a condo and I'm pretty excited about it.

I'm finally making enough money to do a lot more traveling and I'm very excited about that.
I’m really good at
Dancing. Sleeping. Being underwater. Making a margarita. Communing with animals. Meticulous weed-pulling. Back-rubs. Finding beauty and glory in strange places.

Editorial note - Re-reading this makes me sound kinda like a hippy. I'm not.

On a typical Friday night I am
Going dancing or drinking or Netflixing or playing board games with friends.

Or working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't try to oversell myself by putting up the best pictures I can find. I aim for a melange of this-is-what-you-can-actually-expect. I'm a touch over 6', about 170 lbs. I don't work out regularly, but I'm fairly active at work and I care about being in decent shape.
You should message me if
- You like dancing, swimming, and Disneyland, or at least two for three of those.

- You are an intellectual, or a creative type, or thoughtful, or empathic, or badass.

- You do not have any chemical addictions, although I could forgive Stumptown coffee.

- You don't take yourself too seriously.

- My Mari Lwyd doesn't freak you out. I didn't make it for a film project, I just thought it was an intriguing, frightening, and beautiful thing, and I wanted to make one, so I did.

- You feel compelled to do so.

None of the afore-mentioned suggestions are really that important, meth/heroin addiction notwithstanding.
