My self-summary
Musician/Artist/Photographer who masquerades in a suit and tie. Lived in China and Tunisia for little while. Kinda tired of the happy hour scene and just recently realized that there is a hole in my life where a genuine, quirky and awesome partner-in-crime should be. Mainly just looking for someone I can be myself with (someone to go running with, goofing off with, cooking, exploring, artsy stuff, a bit of trouble and equal parts embarrassment every now and then, adventure). I am open to whatever life has in store. I'm a serious believer in the fact that life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
being ambidextrous...

The six things I could never do without
+ guitar
+ camera
+ soccer cleats
+ sriracha
+ honey nut chex w/ almond milk
+ good company/conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
+How I could ever write anything 1/1000 as amazing as 'skinny love'.
+Could I take Sun Tzu in a game of Risk?
On a typical Friday night I am
Writing/editing music, maybe catching a movie or a drink. New Rule: You can't beat a good dance party (Karaoke is a blast too). Generally anything that makes people look ridiculous is the best - Life's too short to take yourself too seriously.
You should message me if
+You're not intimidated by guy who's articulate, independent, empathetic (in other words I'm not a Bro...)
+You appreciate creativity, laughter, wit, relaxation, and getting lost.

Bonus points if:
+You believe in self-cultivation!
+You're comfortable in your own skin
+You're not averse to vulnerability, open communication and emotional intimacy (sounds cheesy i know but it's the truth).
+You respect yourself but don't take yourself too seriously...
+You are a dork/nerd in some way. Brains/soul are a MILLION times sexier than the perfect pose at the club...

Actually f**k it, those are all important to me...
