Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to Seattle (from NYC), so I'm mostly looking for
friends, but open to things developing from there. : )
Life story in a nutshell: I grew up orthodox jewish in New York,
escaped to university in Arizona (intended to study video game
design, ended up doing graphic design), taught English in Japan,
went back to NYC, worked for a couple years at a web design agency,
went back to school (SVA
) for a year and a half to study
(which was exciting and intimidating, but mostly awesome), and now
I'm a UX Designer and I make comics
for fun. : )
I'm definitely a nerd
at heart, but I don't have as much time to embrace it as I'd like
these days. I love stuff like drawing
, video games
, tabletop RPG
, and Icelandic
. : D
I don't go to museums or galleries enough, but I'd love to get out
to these places more.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment, working as a UX Designer, and trying to be a
cartoonist on the side. I also have an embarrassingly large number
of games I purchased during holiday sales on steam, which I have
yet even to install.
I also just started taking Japanese lessons again. Wanna help me
practice? : )
I also wanna get back to taking Icelandic classes again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, intelligent conversation, debating (when
necessary), and getting lost. Also, telling unnecessarily long
stories. : D
Things I aspire to be good at: making comics, imagining others
Oh, and Smash
. Bring it. o_o;
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Umm... I have no idea. My height? I'm kinda short - 5'5".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
OMGFAVORITES (I love this game):
Favorite Photographer: Anthony Goicolea
Favorite Artist: JC Leyendecker
Favorite Director: Michel Gondry
Favorite book: not sure. The God Delusion
? It's what
pushed me over the edge from agnosticism to atheism, so it holds
kind of a special place in my heart. Maybe something by Scott Heim?
My favorite play is The Glass Menagerie. Big fan of John Green
Favorite movie: Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
. I.. don't know how many times
I've watched this movie, but I seem to find something new each
time. Know how some people have a book they can read a million
times? That's this movie for me.
Favorite animated movie: Paprika (the soundtrack is also
Favorite band: Múm
, but other favorites, just to list
a few, include Ólöf Arnadalds
, Jonathan Coulton
Favorite video game: Earthbound
Favorite color: red
Favorite food: Not sure, possibly Japanese. Oh, and I don't eat
meat, except fish meat, generally. Every once in a while, though, I
make an exception for good meat from nice farms with happy animals
that don't eat poison (blah blah etc).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Let's seeee...... I guuueeessss...
1. contacts or glasses (and special eyedrops I have to take
2. inspiration/creative awesomeness! (Art / art supplies, video
games, books / graphic novels / comics)
4. personal hygiene products
5. bed / pillows / covers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Generally: How I'm going to find time to do everything I want to
Lately: Moving to Seattle, and when I should do a kickstarter I've
recently started planning.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably not drinking, probably not dancing. I do drink and dance
occasionally, but it's not my typical Friday night plan.
More likely, I'm working on art/comics while listening to podcasts,
or with something streaming on netflix nearby. It's also possible
that I'm hanging out with friends. Or maybe I'm just playing video
games, or reading. I'm outta control. It's probably the drawing
comics, though. And I've been loving the X-Files Files podcast, and
have been re-watching the series along with it. :o
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes, when I'm looking at someone's profile, and I'm starting
to become rather interested, but then I go through some of their
"The Two of Us" page questions and see a bunch of answers that I
find totally offensive, I want to send them a message and say, "Can
we discuss why you think x, y and z? Seriously? You monster." But I
never do. X_x;
Related to the above - if you experience that with me, I'd really
be interested in hearing about it, because a LOT of my answers are
from a million years ago when I was young and stupid. I'm sure a
lot of my questions should be updated, but there are so many!
Given the chance, I would marry Jonathan Coulton
. Oh yes. And I
think I'd go straight for Amanda Palmer
. At least once.
