So what's my deal? Oh man, I wasn't ready for that question. I thought we were gonna talk about the weather, so I've been studying the NOAA website for 16 hours straight. Well...I've been in Portland long enough to call it home. Moved here on a whim back in ought' 2. Spent a couple of those years traveling the country snapping pictures for and advertising company. A few more of those years were spent living in a yurt out in the woods while working for a non-profit in Washington. Aside from that, I've been a fairly normal city dweller working in the photo/video/audio/crazy people industry. I've been very pleased with the cards I've chosen to play from life. I still consider myself an artist despite working in a more technical field these days. Just recently took on a full time "normal" job. I still get to point cameras at stuff most of the time, now I point them between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM Monday through Friday. And I get to wear a tie to work. Nothing wrong with looking dapper in the workplace.
One of my favorite hobbies is finding new hobbies to try and master. If I had my druthers I'd be spending my time writing, shooting pictures, editing, sewing, cooking, building shit, working on a classic car, playing disc golf, reading, watching old cartoons or yacking it up with new people. I've also got a pretty amazing set of friends that I enjoy hanging out with. I tend to collect good people. Never been to close with my immediate family, so the people I choose to surround myself with are pretty freaking awesome. Been a pretty luck guy over all.
