BUT, I like the idea of opening up to the great unknown possibility that this website presents, reaching out to people outside of those I meet in everyday life. There's so many rad people out there that you won't run into at work or in class or at the supermarket between the apples and kiwis (or who you do see but don't wind up talking to). It's cool to think that this profile is always up and who knows who might come along. Who's out there?!!
I grew up in the Bay Area. I Went to a little college in Vermont (as far away as possible) for 2 years and then took some time off and transferred to the Art Institute in SF. I'm staying in Palo Alto right now which is a mixed bag of nice weather and brilliant people but it's a bit like Barbie-ville. I like being in New York for periods of time as long as I have an exit plan but I don't think I could live there. I've traveled a lot throughout my life, to all 50 states, Mexico, Central America, Ecuador, Galapagos, India, Jamaica. I'd like to go to Europe and Japan. I'm not a sight-seeing traveler, I'm more interested in the back roads and the little things and I like staying places a little while to get to know them better instead of just passing through, but that's good too. I never saw the Taj Mahal when I was in India and have no regrets.
I have a lot of creative energy and I've always had creative projects in my life. When I was a kid I had a double room separated by french doors and one room was completely devoted to Legos- and most of the closet as well. I'm in love with photography and video and have been since high school, so that gets most of my creative attention but I generally just like making things. I want art to happen in everyday life and not in galleries. I have lots of aspirations and dreams, enough for several lifetimes. I don't really understand how people can be uninterested or not know what they want to do with their lives. I'd like to make art, music, study science, politics, religion, be an airplane pilot or maybe helicopter or race car driver, a surfer bum... I'll always be thinking about what I want to be when I grow up.
I'm pretty honest and open (I can't help it) and I'm drawn to similar kinds of people who aren't trying to re-enact the perfect magazine or TV persona. I like real conversations, but I'm pretty silly too especially when I feel comfortable around someone.
Ask me a question. I get along with almost everyone except people who are super jaded and bored.
