My self-summary
I'm an art school dropout, but I didn't stop making things... Or I did. For a long while. Trying again. Unlearning again. I am a woodworker, stuff like furniture and instrument (luthery) making are my obsessions.

Sometimes I think about going back to school, but my interests are too varied and I have no clue what to pick, I'm always learning new skills and hobbies.

I like the weird stuff.

Interesting Facts about Me!

My grandma was a correctional officer/guard and I went to an inmate operated daycare.

I'm a neglectful house plant care taker, and in the past have made my own hydroponic systems to make things easier. They lasted longer till I neglected to refill the water. Kitchen herbs and cherry tomatoes!

I've brewed beer at home and want to do it again. Update: brewed with the roommate, working on making it a regular thing. Def.gonna make something for summer.

Didnt learn to ride a bike till i was about 22.

One summer I walked to kits beach every weekend (like 6am) morning to watch the crows play before people would arrive.

Other stuff!
What I’m doing with my life
Scratching the Surface.

I just adopted an elderly rabbit.

Falling asleep with incense and krautrock.

Being a Human Wikipedia; full of facts, but a significant portion of them are wrong or uncited :s
I’m really good at
Eating Rice.

Getting drunk while listening to sad country songs.

Sending the most random messages to people after a beer of two.

Developing minor infatuations with people who wont talk to me.

Making things durring my coffee and lunch breaks.

Small motor skill things. Painting. Drawing. Sculpting. Carving. Building. Crafting. Playing music. I have a good memory for methodical tasks. Industrial stuff. Creative stuff.

I also have a more intellectual side, but I don't know what to say about that... Contrary to popular belief it doesn't actually make you a more complex human.
The first things people usually notice about me
Babeasaurus Rex

It seems contradictory, but I have been told several times that I am easy to talk to. My guess is people notice because they are surprised.

I look very manly, but my personality is not. Even though I do some manly things like woodworking and stuff...

You should message me if
You're Patti Smith.

Or if you want to run away together to be poets and start a rock and roll band. I'll be Tom Verlaine and you be Richard Hell. Or the other way around. I don't care.

You want to build shrines to a pantheon of new gods we dreamed up, and convince people they are real.

You want to teach me how to kayak. Or how to sail.

You're Marceline The Vampire Queen.
