Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I traveled for the first time internationally this year and it was
a pseudo-pilgrimage. I visited my little brother in Nepal and we
made our way to Lumbini to visit the Maya Devi Temple which is the
purported birthplace of the Buddha. Honestly, it was tough and the
trip back really turned out to be more difficult than anticipated.
But it was an eye-opening journey.
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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"I'm having a ball. Scrapping and yelling and mixing it up. Loving
every minute with this damn crew."
These days, I'm just working on contributing something to the
world. Being that I'm creative, I'm trying to write sci-fi short
stories that make me think, and by extension could make others
think about the current state of affairs. I try to use my time away
from work really engaging myself creatively to enrich myself and
the life of those around me. I train myself physically, mentally
and try to keep an even keel emotionally.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being silly, inappropriate and mindful. I am pretty patient and a
good listener. I love listening to peoples' silly stories because
it makes people more human. As if we're sharing a really awesome
part of our humanity. I try to share my silly stories in return to
make a genuine connection with another person. To me this can be a
rather intimate process without the heavy connotations. It's light
and intimate and that rules! It also gives me a chance to practice

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The books that I read are generally either Buddhist literature,
both modern and ancient, or sword/sorcery fantasy/sci-fi.
Movies: The Departed, other Scorsese films, Reservoir Dogs, other
Tarantino flicks. I'm a fan of horror, fantasy and science fiction.
I don't think there's a science fiction movie that I watched that I
didn't at least like a little bit, except Tom Cruise in War of the
Worlds. That movies stinks!
Shows: Crime dramas are my absolute favorite and in that light The
Wire is my most favorite show of all time. Also, I love some silly
sitcoms like Community, 30Rock and It's always sunny. Of course,
I'm also into scifi TV as well, modern BSG, Star Trek: Next
Generation, Red Dwarf and scifi channel Dune series.
Music: I love dirty and grimy beats paired with warm
textures/harmonies. Genres include but not limited to, jazz, blues,
reggae, dub, funk, hiphop, rap, avant garde beat driven music,
soul, orchestral soundtracks. Artists include, J Dilla, Madlib, MF
Doom, Apollo Brown, Flying Lotus, Digital Mystikz etc.
Food: Thai, Japanese and other Asian cuisines, as well as Mexican
& Italian but I'm always willing to try a something new.

The three refuges
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sounds, especially the low-end frequencies. The nature of
existence, limitations of perception as we know it, and our
relationship with the rest of the expansive universe.
Lately, it's also been the pathology of sexuality and the
relationship between sexuality and our psychological past.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

I cried the first time I saw Forest Gump. I know it's not the

Also, I like some trap music because of that 808!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to meet my little Marilyn, the cute dog that I share my
life with. Or you want to check out some beats at Lo-fi on a
Tuesday night (Stop Biting). Maybe you'd like to go shopping for
records? Or you just want to drink tea/coffee/eat caramels, we can
talk and get to know each other. I'm really about making genuine
connections with other people these days. Not looking for prolonged
expectations just connections with all the beautiful people out
As a disclaimer, I practice ethical non-monogamy. So I have
partners currently but that doesn't restrict me from meeting new
people. I'm really open to making a new connection with
interesting, even not-so-interesting, folks. I'm into the variety
of life and meeting new people helps me experience this first hand.
