My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, my name is Ryan.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I think the description I recently wrote for my portfolio site sums up what I was trying to convey here really well, so I'm going to start with that:

"My name is Ryan M. Weisgerber (pronounced Vice-gerber) and I like to describe myself as the baby that Mr. Rogers had with Steve Jobs. I am a graphic designer and illustrator who embodies the playfulness and delight of Mr. Rogers with the uncompromising pursuit of excellence that Steve Jobs embodied. I create cute, delightful, well-crafted experiences for kids, with fun characters and stories that model how to be a happy, healthy, and functional person.

I’m most inspired when supporting others in experiencing the best version of themselves possible, and I strive to have this at the heart of everything I create.

My areas of professional focus include: graphic design, illustration, brand strategy, user-experience design, photography, consulting, and delightful collaboration."

In addition to that I am helping form/launch a non-profit called Smashing Color Press whose mission is to change the way that color is being taught to children (because they're being taught inaccurate information, as were you and I). I'm also writing and illustrating a children's book about colorful dinosaurs which will teach children what Smashing Color Press calls "21st Century Color." I'm also just generally (and pretty radically) pivoting my design career in the direction of the type of work/projects/initiatives that I just mentioned—I want to be developing educational, inspiring, empowering, and generally awesome things for children full-time (and also embarking on other miscellaneous entrepreneurial endeavors).

There's a lot of really awesome stuff going on in my life right now and I'd like to meet someone to share it all with (and create other amazing things with, too).

This is unrelated, but I totally want this right now. (To follow up on that surprising plot-twist, I totally ended up getting some.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I get really fixated on funny word combinations. I don't know if this is a "good at" situation, but stumbling across brain-ramblings like "snuffle muffin" or "nugget butler" or "pickle bear" or "biscuit farmer" delights me.

I'm really good at having sensory experiences, seeing faces in things, emotional intelligence, articulation, being witty, amusing myself, being forever curious & amazed by the world/animals/plants/people/weather/clouds/technology/astronomy/physics/etc./etc./etc., eating amazing food (eating is a skill), drawing cute stuff, creative problem-solving, being bit by mosquitos, sharing awesome music with people, learning new things, delighting people, being generous & compassionate, being kind, snuggling, and roasting vegetables.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm male.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love music so much. To keep this list from crushing anyone's face I've made a few choice selections of what's currently getting lots of airplay:

Amon Tobin, Animal Collective, Arcade Fire, Blind Pilot, Broken Bells, Clark, Death Cab for Cutie, Depeche Mode, Explosions in the Sky, Fuck Buttons, Goldmund, Jose Gonzalez, Junip, LCD Soundsystem, Loscil, Moderat, The National, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Panda Bear, The Shins, Sparklehorse, Sufjan Stevens, Thom Yorke, The War on Drugs.

I love movies but I'm not great at remembering the ones I love. Here are a few that come to mind right now:

Paul Thomas Anderson movies, Cohen Brothers movies, Wes Anderson movies, Crazy Heart, Boyhood, Sean of the Dead, Stranger than Fiction, Up in the Air, The Wrestler, Pixar Movies.

TV Shows:
Cosmos (NDT), Delocated, Foo Fighters Sonic Highways, Frisky Dingo, House of Cards, Rick & Morty, Sherlock.

I read a lot when I was a wee Snufflemuffin, and there was a period of about a decade as an adult where I was devouring non-fiction books (spirituality, personal development, biographies, skill-building, etc.), but that's slowed way down the past couple years. I've been really focused on business-development and actualizing my dreams and creating things. I still read, but it's not as consistent/ravenous as it was previously. I intend to remedy that at some point.

I love food. I don't even know where to begin. We'd be here for a week at least. The sheer magnitude of my passion for food would cause the OK Cupid website to burst into flames & explode if I tried to elaborate on it here.

Also, I really love chocolate. Dark chocolate. With Jacobsen's Sea Salt. I'll totally share with you but I'll get grumpy if you eat more than 1/2... but then I'll totally give you more than the more-than-1/2 that you took because I'll feel like a butthead for getting grumpy with you over something as silly as chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
How about if I give you 6 words that I think represent who I am & what I try to be more of?

1. Courageous
2. Loving
3. Kind
4. Supportive
5. Accepting
6. Thoughtful

Ok, now I'll give you the other six things (but I don't subscribe to the "could never do without" part).

1. Cats
2. Music
3. Cuddling
4. Someone to eat/enjoy my cooking/food-in-general with
5. Deeply moving emotional experiences
6. Living things
7. Jacobsen's Sea Salt
8. Disregarding rules that I find pointless or irrelevant.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Chocolate. Also philosophical, existential, and grammatical stuff. For instance:

- Who is 2015 Ryan M. Weisgerber and what do I most love in life?
- What do I want my legacy to be and am I effectively creating that?
- Am I using dashes, en dashes, and em dashes properly?
- Is there more chocolate in my desk drawer?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
What is a "typical Friday night"?! I reject that concept on principle. :P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once bought body wash that smelled like ham when I used it (the bottle said lavender). I do not like being covered in soapy ham-bubbles. Truth.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'll give you 3 great reasons:

1. The possibility of meeting up in-person with a man you've met online who calls himself "Snufflemuffin" is exciting to you.
2. You value emotional-intelligence.
3. You think that it's a terrible idea to not message me.
