What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
career-wise :
i work as a design detail drafter for a company that designs and fabricates architectural fixtures for retail and museum environments. mostly my job consists of figuring out how design elements are to be constructed, verifying figured out concept with a virtual model and then drafting drawing sets from the model to ensure that the designs are built correctly and easily.

when i am not engaged in the day to day chores of food preparation/cooking/cleaning and exercise (i run miles everyday but do not consider that a big part of my life) i work on various personal projects that i hope will broaden what i can do for a living as well as engage a desire to explore more creative pursuits.

currently this endeavor is manifesting itself as the creation of an animated computer graphics based short-animation of a single-family residential house that i find compelling in it's design. it is my hope to use this project to gain some side work as well as a way to explore my interest in how to apply cinematography principles towards expressing architectural narrative.

all of the above returns to a starting point of a long standing personal interest i have with abstract representation. Doesn't matter if it is of real world objects (such as physical models of objects), abstract concepts such as emotions expressed through visual art, film writing or music, or complex systems such as simulation of real-world behavior and experiences (such as architectural evolution of cityscapes or flight simulation). in many ways, i consider a well constructed model to be more interesting than the real thing, as it encapsulates a a sense of understanding, even if comparatively finite in it's scope, that the real world lacks.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

hate cheese (really).

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
when not engaged in my personal project as described in the second half of "what i'm doing with my life",

i do find myself thinking about other potential personal projects (too involved to go into here) but centered around ideas of:

abstract landscape photography,

possible design-related software application ideas,

colors, materials, form, space, light and darkness.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
same as any other night: cooking, eating, running, working on personal projects.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i have made a very conscientious effort to be as earnest as possible in this profile. That is not really very representative of my actual mode of communication or relating to the world (and was not intuitive for me to do), but i found my normal mode to be very ineffective in generating any response from the traffic to my profile, so i decided this was a change worth making to my profile. This is not to say that anything i expressed in this profile is disingenuous, only to say that the style in which it is expressed is not my normal style.
