My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I can't think of anything lamer than describing myself in little fill in the blanks. This website kind of feels like shopping for people on Amazon which is a bit disturbing especially since no one seems to come with free 2 day shipping. Also half of the questions seem to be be subtle and not so subtle versions of "will you cheat on me" which is a little crazy to be worrying about when you haven't even met the person. The other half are simplistic and black and white- I don't like people because they smile when they see babies, or because of how often they brush their teeth or whether they could date a messy person or not. Who cares. I like people for all the things that you could never ask in a multiple choice question. The indescribable things that can't be put to words but you feel when you see that person walking, talking, looking at you, existing in the world the way they do. The moments between all the meaningless questions.

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.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Camera (though without it I'd just do something else like paint or whatever)
Music

Honesty
Healthy food
Freeeeeeeedoommmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to make things better and more beautiful. What things mean. People and what makes them tick. Like "I wonder what that guy thinks about first thing in the morning?" I would love to know the answer and I hope to make pictures that provide insight into such questions.

Different projects I get obsessed with. Also simple things like food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
wearing leopard skin chaps and snorting crack off a toilet seat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I currently am fighting a neuro-immune illness called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that was triggered on my trip to India. I plan on recovering as soon as possible. It's nothing contagious or weird, my pictures are current and accurate. I just have limited energy right now so I can't be very active at the moment in terms of hikes, concerts, etc but I'm fine with more subdued things just not with walking too much. I don't entirely like the idea of this being one of the first things someone knows about me because it doesn't define me at all, but because of the nature of this site I like the idea of being upfront. I'm happy to talk about it. I also understand that this puts some limits on friendships and relationships and have no expectations. Just open to meeting new people if it works.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you don't wear tons of makeup or take pictures of yourself in the bathroom mirror trying to look like J Lo.

If you want a hug or casual cuddles (no I don't mean sex).
