I've grown to appreciate my life but the trip, with all the lucid dreams I had in Nepal, confirmed that I need to be more concentrated on my creative endeavors. I'm a writer, a sketch artist with pencils and ink, a beatmaker, and a Buddhist. Recently, I've decided to write a novel, a noir piece set in 1940s Portland. This was the central dream I had in Nepal and the book is essentially about wishing good things happened to good people, instead of the frequent, bad things happening to good people.
I've just decided to withdraw a bit and practice more writing and penciling, in addition to reading a lot more novels, graphic or otherwise. I am still practicing martial arts and meditation regularly but for the time being a lot of my free time goes into researching my novel and writing short stories that may one day be submitted to printed magazines.
More generally, I'm a dog owner, a lover of good television shows (the Wire being my all time favorite), a gamer (boardgames and rpgs exclusively, not a console guy), a comic nerd and a fantasy, science-fiction geek. I'm also a rather sexual individual who loves exploring this often hidden side of my personality, especially with other like-minded people.
