Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy each decade of my life more than the last. I plan on
keeping that going. I have lived an unconventional life in some
respects, but I am not afraid of conventionality, I just don't see
it as inherently valuable.
I enjoy good natured sarcasm and I seem to get along with most
people. I dislike elitism.
I have a dog named Akira and a cat named Jack. To save time I refer
to them by their celebrity-couple name, Jackira.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have been a tattooist for the last 20 years and still do that on
a part time basis. Right now I am working on a PhD in political
science and will be working on it for another year at least.
Nevertheless, I make time for friends and family.
Whenever I get the time I like to get out to/in the ocean. I like
to sail and am learning to surf (still not good at it and may never
be, but I have fun).
I'm mostly just working at the tattoo shop and writing my
dissertation. I'll also be teaching one class as an adjunct this
fall in political theory. I'm thinking about taking a trip in the
next year to Argentina if I can swing the time and money to make it
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I give good back rubs, I write well, I make tamales, and I can
drone on and on about esoteric crap that no sensible person would
ever be bothered with. Also, I'm a very solid tattooist.
The first things people usually notice about me

is that who I am does not meet their expectations based on how I
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: The Brothers Karamazov is my all time favorite, The
Innocents Abroad (Twain), and Around the World Alone (Slocum) were
also great reads. Right now I read so much for school that I have
little time for leisure reading.
Movies: I like all kinds of movies--not too picky there--I like
both serious films and complete schlock.
Shows (TV, I assume): 30 Rock, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Trailer
Park Boys, and other things found on Netflix. I don't have an
actual TV hooked up these days.
Music: Again all over the map. I do have a near-zero-tolerance
policy for Andrew Lloyd Weber and most musical theater. I also
cannot abide psuedo-patriotic maudlin new country. Other than that
I will listen to classical, some jazz, punk rock, pop, hardcore,
Latin music, "alt" country, etc.
Food: For meat I normally only eat fish and poultry and have been
circling the conversion to vegetarianism. When I'm just buying food
for myself it's simple and pretty much vegan--I like eating at home
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hyperbole aside, here's a list of things I would strongly prefer
not to live without:
exercise (preferably outdoor),
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Theories of political development, boats, surfing, starting an
international shipping company that uses green technologies,
houses, travel, escaping civilization, my friends, my family,
dating, sex...not necessarily in that order.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hanging out with friends or at home doing schoolwork.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I cried watching Orange County and I'm still not really sure
why--it could have been the teenage angst of Collin Hanks, it might
have been Jack Black in his underwear, or maybe it was John Lithgow
(sp?) as the distant father, who knows really?
