My self-summary
Hi, my name is Alex and I enjoy pretzels... now that the formalities are out of the way, why have I joined this sight? Mostly I am curious to see what kind of people are out there, maybe meet some of you cool folks (yes I called you folks, deal with it).

Any way, I'm an artistic soul. I dabble in many different art forms. I'm the type of person who can find beauty in anything and I take my camera everywhere with me. I also write, paint, and practice woodcarving. I love sharing my art and music with others.

I'm a history buff. I love learning about the past and how it relates to our present. History is so interesting, it is filled with action, adventure, drama, and intrigue (sometimes all at once).

I will admit I'm a bit of a nerd. I do like Sci-Fi movies, I do enjoy anime, and I do read graphic novels. But I am proud of my nerdishness (if it's not a word it should be) and wouldn't have it any other way.

I am Random, goofy, and laid back
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a profesional freelance videographer. Basically if you need some one to come film an event, I'm your guy. do a lot of work at a local access cable station. I do camera work, editing, and program directing, pretty much what ever they need me to do. I'm studying digital media production at Emerson. My goal is to have a career in either television or film.

My other passion is martial arts. I currently hold an blue belt in Jeet Kune Do (the style developed by Bruce Lee) and a white belt in Brazilian Jujitsu. It's a great way to keep in shape, and it's good to know I can defend myself or others should the need arise. In a perfect future I would merge my two passions and become a fight choreographer for movies, that would be awesome!
I’m really good at
Pretty much any thing I put my mind to. I'm a very driven person when I have a clear goal.

I am very good at seeing both sides of an argument, making people laugh, and picking people up when they are feeling down.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, the first time i met me was a while ago so I'm not really sure what the first thing I noticed about me was. If I had to guess I would say my height. I am 6'2" and people I meet usually comment about that. Beyond that I guess my sense of humor. I love bad jokes, laughing, and making other people laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I watch a lot of movies, so my favorites change pretty frequently. My new favorite is Inception. I also loved Gran Torino. I am a BIG Clint Eastwood fan and I think that is one of his best works. I really like Batman The Dark Night, a film called The Air I Breath, and I just saw a really good film called Franklyn. I'm also a fan of old school Akira Kurosawa films (Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, etc.)

As far as books go I read a variety of things. I just finished reading a book named Oryx and Crake. It's a post apocalyptic sci fi novel that was really well written. My favorite book is called Children of Odin witch takes many of the stories from Norse mythology and puts them in a coherent order.

My tastes in music are all over the place. From rock to folk, from jazz to rap. All music is at least interesting, and at most stirs your deepest emotions.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, family, books, music, art, pizza. (What? I like pizza)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy, human nature, science, love, and beauty. I consider my self a student of life and I try to learn from everything and experience as much as I can. This world of ours is an incredible place if you really look at it.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I HATE Old Navy commercials. Seriously, sometimes I'll change the channel to not have to watch them.
You should message me if
If you enjoy the occasional "that's what she said" joke.

Definitely message me if you are interested in martial arts (it's tough finding other people with a passion for it).

Or if you just want to chat about random things.

(I don't put much stock in the percentages that this sight gives for romance and friendships. I'm friends with lots of people that would surprise you. So regardless of what OKC thinks, if you're interested let me know.)
