My self-summary
The older I get the more at peace I start to realize I am. I'd consider myself a unique soul. I'm constantly being motivated with all that I do (in myself or from those around me) and always have been since I was a kid. With that I've been fortunate to achieve most of what I've set out to do for myself.

I've been living here in LA for over ten years now and it's been, and will probably remain to be, the most important ten years of my life.

I have a wide circle of great friends, somehow it seems to continue growing, and the best family a person could ask for. They'd all love it if I weren't on this site, to be honest, (lol) but we'll just keep it between you and I that I'm on here. What's the harm in trying?

I'm confidently introverted but almost all of my friends are extroverted (not sure how it always turns out this way). It gets exhausting but I somehow manage.

My favorite days are spent doing something spontaneous and many times outside the apartment. Long drives with no destination or walking through an undiscovered neighborhood, going to a movie (alone or not) with no preconceived knowledge of it being "a hit." I'm not one for saying no or ignoring a call late at night to go do something new or fun, just because. We only live once...

While all these things are really great what's even greater is sharing it with another person.

Let's make it happen :)
What I’m doing with my life
Applying my obsession of how things look, feel, and can be improved- working as a 3D background artist at an award winning video game studio in Santa Monica

A crazy journey worth sharing
I’m really good at
Discerning people, listening and letting a person be themselves without judgement.

I can also make a pretty solid pour-over coffee
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a bright smile, deep bold voice and a contagious laugh that carries across the room

I'm fairly stoic by nature. I'll hold the conversation on our dates but my preference is calm, collected, listening and being present
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: (I love my Kindle)
Daring Greatly, Frankenstein, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas, What Everybody is Saying, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, The Power of Now, How to Win Friends & Influence People
Movies:
Dunkirk, Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker, The King's Speech, Lincoln, Flight, Man on Wire, March of the Penguins, The Godfather, Jaws, Shawshank Redemption, The Shining, Crash, Toy Story, Paranormal Activity, Halloween

If you like horror movies, or could be talked into watching them or going with my friends and I to haunted mazes, meet me at the alter in a white dress ;)

Music:

21 Savage, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Drake, DIIV, alt-J, Bibo, Bonobo, Fela Kuti, Kanye West, Sleigh Bells, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, The Roots, Common, Tribe Called Quest, Yasiin Bey, M83, Miles Davis, Com Truise, Neon Indian, Iron & Wine, Django Django, Madlib, The Doobie Brothers, The Allman Brothers Band, David Sanborn, Daft Punk, Sigur Ros, Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Radiohead, Pantera, Megadeth, etc.

Love blues, bluegrass, folk and some old southern style country as well.
Six things I could never do without
My family
Pour-over coffee
Scotch whisky
Music
Computers
Google Maps :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What a person's Myers Briggs personality type is without asking, the energies different people give off, sounds, shapes, colors, composition, and self improvement
On a typical Friday night I am
Always ending up with the responsibility of figuring out where my friends and I are going for the night and them saying "I don't wanna go there."

SOMEONE ELSE CHOOSE! lol

My Friday night vice every once in a while is a night at the cigar lounge with a book, cigar and scotch or bourbon
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Me? Ticklish? Pfft...
You should message me if
You're a fine hybrid of energetic, fun and spontaneous while maintaining the ability to be okay in the stillness and unspoken

You're vulnerable (You don't have to prove anything to me- be honest and I'll accept that)

You'll share your plate- I'll definitely share mine

You appreciate the outdoors

You don't shudder at the thought of Disneyland :)

You can make me wonder why a gem like you would need this tacky site
