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, though I've yet to have a pleasant dating experience. I'm hesitant, but still open to the possibility of meeting someone on here. That said, I am very, very particular about romantic partners and prefer to spend a good amount of time getting to know someone as a friend before getting romantically involved even in the slightest.
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!
