My self-summary
I'm Italian (1/2), Korean (1/4) Scottish (1/8) Irish (1/8), but it boils down to white with cool eyes.

I love to and have been lucky enough to travel the world... and yet I equally enjoy a blanket-cocooned movie marathon in bed. (I think a little piece of me is always left behind in Panama's oceans though)

I'm a slightly jaded romantic (just slightly). Being born and raised in New York probably didn't help.

I'm a dorky, artsy, kinky, programmer, poet... who would rather not surf the Atlantic. (not a fan of the cold but I miss catching waves)

I'm a sucker for alliteration.

I feel like a multitude of dichotomies, I'm more than each of my pieces.

Side note: My personality tab is sort of bullshit. It's off on a lot. You'd do better going through my questions. I'm INTP if that's worth anything to you, though I'm usually pretty good at empathy.
What I’m doing with my life
Forgetting to transcribe a good 40% of the poems that pop into my head.

Scouting locations for my next mini-vacation.

Enjoying my new job, freelance editing and filming videos. It pays the bills and opens doors to multiple things I have interest in pursuing.

Sketching out my next mural.

Missing the Caribbean sea. (It's like an infinite crystalline salt water bath with waves)

Art. Period.
I’m really good at
Writing (anything but long stories and sonnets)
Charcoal sketches
Running (sprinting really)
Surfing
Charming Animals (butt scratches are super effective, even cats can't resist!)
Teaching kids math
Making breakfast
Personalizing gifts
Walking and chewing gum at the same time
The first things people usually notice about me
My height or my eyes?
That I'm either "extremely chill" or "very intense." (Dunno how people come to such different conclusions, I oscillate between whatever feels right for the moment)
I dunno you tell me and maybe I'll add it here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My laptop doubles as my television most days but:

Arrested Development, Adventure Time, Breaking Bad,
Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Tosh.0, The Chappelle Show (How i miss it), Dexter, Elementary, Sherlock, True Detective, The Office, Parks and Recreation, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, Star Trek ... to list a few

Blade Runner (has the best death scene in all of cinema), The God Father (1 and 2) to Fight Club, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Fountain, Dawn of the Dead (horror and zombie movies are fun), Moulin Rouge, Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski, Moonrise Kingdom, Donnie Darko, Ip Man, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Insidious, Star Trek. X-men: Days of Future Past, Most everything Disney (yup, really), Midnight in Paris, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the original), I have watched more great movies than I can list. 9 times out of 10, I've seen it.

Music: I love everything that isn't Rap, Country, or Death Metal. Again for all you skimmers, I don't like those 3 genres (there is some good Rap though). Over all I like classic rock. The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, etc. etc. etc .
Springsteen, Sinatra, Radiohead, MBGT, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Franz Ferdinand, and so many more. Recently I've been listening to the song, Say Something. No baggage, I just understand it profoundly.

Food: Anything from a Florentine Bistec to a well made Croque Monsieur. I eat everything the world has to offer. Korean, Italian, French, are my top 3. Though sauteed spinach with some onions, lemon juice, olive oil is one of my favorite side dishes, weird? Oh and chocolate, all kinds.

Books: The Elegance of a Hedgehog, American Gods, Shakespeare, Hemmingway, The Odyssey, The Elegant Universe, mystery novels, The Life of Pi, The Alchemist, Pride and Prejudice, World War Z (movie was eh), Neil Gaiman, The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud. Neruda, Ginsberg, Cummings, Frost, and more for poetry.
The six things I could never do without
(Asides from the obvious, family, friends, my dog, sex, my bed, warm weather, passport, laptop etc.)

The cool side of the pillow
Iced coffee
Texture/Touch
Beauty
Good wine
Passion Fruit (no really, I have a story here)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How fucking awesome life is right now.

Beautiful places I've been to and want to revisit (Machu Pichu, Panama, Mexico, Belize, France, Italy, Costa Rica) and what new place I want to go next. (This summer I'm thinking Japan, Spain, Greece, are musts and then I'll figure out the rest from there)

Perception, alternate realities, various super powers, the reason why people are the way they are, technology, nature, current events, and endless other sparks of interest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Perfecting my crafts, avoiding sleep, watching a movie, finding an adventure, or working if my boss calls me in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't want to cop-out here but I'm an open book.

I'll go with:
I still have a stuffed animal that's been with me since I was born. He's a dog and his name is Boney. I do not sleep with him though. (Hmm... maybe i should >.>)

Oh, I have another good one.
I have 11 weaknesses. By this i mean both things that can charm me, and things that can bring out the worst in me.
I have a numbered list and I'll let you pick a random 3 to ask me about up front. The rest you can learn over time.
(If you don't feel like playing along I really don't mind just saying all of them)
You should message me if
you've danced on the edge of infinity,
feel lost in time and space,
turned a frog into a prince...

or how about if your interest was piqued? If you just visit my profile and do nothing I'm just going to assume otherwise. I like people who take initiative in their life.
