UPDATE: I've met the love of my life and am crazy stupid in love with her

I left LA in 2012 and moved to Tucson to fulfill my dream of opening a metal fabrication shop and art studio.

I love building things. I am a decorative ironworker and blacksmith by profession, but also do some woodwork on the side and am about to begin learning stained glass. My tendency to bore easily has led me to constantly seek out strange people and circumstances. I like to eat, A LOT, and often really late at night. If you couldn't tell by my screen name, I wear plaid, almost exclusively. I DO NOT WANT KIDS. EVER.

I'm on here primarily to make connections with other artists/artisans/weirdos/nerds/bikers. I love meeting new people and, contrary to my image, am very warm and approachable. I've met some amazing people, including a few of my best friends, on this site.

I operate an art collective and am always looking for new people to exchange skills with and collaborate on art/construction projects. If you would like to learn how to weld/forge/wrought/bend/carve metal, or have a skill you think you would like to share with me, let's meet up!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
-Running a business
-Swordsmithing/fighting
-Renovating my house
-Building a campaign for the 2015 mayoral election
-Chopping motorcycles
-Constructing a military grade flamethrower (yes, that's legal)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Organic chemistry. Considering people's feelings. Hugging. Making swords/knives/anything sharp. Cooking meats. Driving. Field surgery. Demolition. Shooting things from really long distances. Alienating terrible people. Looking good in plaid. Being surprisingly responsible and safe when it comes to wildly dangerous activities.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People usually notice my blue eyes... but I feel like eyes really don't say much about a person. With this in mind, I polled some friends and randos and here's what they had to say about our first encounter.

"You were turned up to 110%. Really intense. I was like, 'This guy is like a whirlwind of things happening.'" - LaurenBot

"First impression; 'This guy is like the Salvador Dali of Destruction.'" - Dakota

"Interesting, funny, and refreshingly gentlemanly." - Anna

"I really respect your 'go hard or go home' attitude when it comes to food." - RiotRix

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Power tools
2. Cake
3. Plaid
4. Flammables/Flamethrowers
5. Science
6. Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Why people believe what they believe and do what they do.
-Why I believe what I believe and do what I do.
-What I want to eat next.
-What I want to create next.
-Why I left the military.
-How to find peace and understanding in the face of some of the horrific things I've seen in life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically being atypical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often feel deeply out of place in society. Even compared with my college years, today's world seems a much less free space in which to move around in. I explore and grapple with my disillusionment through art, fantasy and humor. Road trips and motorcycle rides to deserted wasteland-ish locations are the guardians of my sanity.

I have a rare seizure disorder which I've been dealing with since 2011. Typically, I'll have one major episode per year and suffer after effects for a few weeks. I also have mild PTSD from my time in the Foreign Legion. It's left me a tad high strung and hyper vigilant. I get nervous from loud noises and when in large, confined crowds, and I eat food really, really fast. Those are pretty much my only issues. If either one of those bothers you, move along.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like fire and hate smart phones. You're 561-27-3 friendly. You chop/ride motorcycles and love to build bikes and go on rides. You think astrology is bullshit. You want to learn metal work or teach me a new skill. You want to play with guns/bombs/swords/any other dangerous things of that nature. You have an idea for some REALLY WEIRD/INTENSE SHIT. The idea of building an evil super villain lair in the wash tunnels, or eating a shit ton of hallucinogens and wandering out into the woods, appeals to you.

Deal Breakers:

-If you do not understand and appreciate dark humor, we will not get along. I have an extremely morbid sense of humor.

-If you are judgmental or intolerant. Most of my friends and family are queer/trans/POC. Even if this weren't the case, I have zero attraction to bigots. At the same time, I appreciate a healthy amount of political incorrectness.

-If you don't have a handle on your use of substances. Good rule of thumb is that if I can easily tell that you're high, I don't want to hang out with you.

-If you are obsessed with sports. Though I would prefer that you abhor sports as much as I do. I think I could stomach someone who enjoys watching or playing the occasional game.

-If you have anger issues which manifest violently, are impatient, bossy, secretive. Zero interest.

-Politeness, punctuality, and consideration for others are the quickest and best ways to impress me. Disregard for any of these things is the quickest way to turn me off.

-If you are full of yourself. I like people who are confident and love themselves, not those who are arrogant and self absorbed.

-If you are a radical feminist/MRA/etc. I am an egalitarian, race and queer politics are important to me, but I am not seriously involved and generally do not get on well with people who identify as radicals.

-If you constantly post pictures of food that you didn't prepare yourself: DO. NOT. CONTACT. ME.

Qualities I Look For

-A thorough understanding of consent. I couldn't tell you how many women I've dated who don't respect boundaries.

-I demand a lot from my friends because I give just as much back.

-Passion for art and expression.

-Spontaneity. Like, pick up one day and go to Uruguay for the Winter kind of spontaneity.

-Weird, eccentric and occasionally downright goofy.
