My self-summary
My name is Alex and I hail from Raleigh in the great state of North Carolina. I currently live in Baltimore because I am a student at MICA. I am a Fibers major with a concentration in Ceramics. When I say fibers major, I'm not talking about fashion or clothes because I don't care about that shit. I love to weave, screen print, and material construction. I also work for the school as a figure model.
I am new to this web dating thing but figured I would give it a shot. My motto is "try anything twice", but I am more frequently heard saying "I can do this later, I still have time".
I love hiking, camping, and building structures in the woods. I am a huge fan of animals and dont mind eating them as long as somebody else does the killing.
I also love traveling and want to try and visit every country before I die. I have a pretty good start. I think the country is tally is like 20 or around there. I lived in London for the first three years of high school and lived in Sydney for three months for an internship with an architect and a sound and video artist. I just get the itch to change my location after three or four years of being in the same place. Over the summer, I traveled around Turkey for a little over a month, then spent two days in Berlin, and finally made the ultimate pilgrimage to Amsterdam.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm going to art school and trying to figure everything out. I am also a dedicated cannabis connoisseur.
I’m really good at
Weaving, sleeping, smoking, talking, being a total harry potter nerd, playing with dogs, acting ridiculous, having a good time anywhere, making people laugh, not giving a serious amount of shits, literally stopping to smell the flowers
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor and laid back attitude I guess. Who knows, you tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harry Potter (massive nerd and the way to my heart), You are Here, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and a variety of others that I can't think of right now
Movies: Snatch, Boondocks Saints, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, anything by Miyazaki, the Coen Brothers, John Hughes or Quentin Tarantino
Shows: Arrested Development, Bones, White Collar, Psych, Supernatural, Leverage, Modern Family
Music: Dr. Dog FOREVER! In fact I saw them over the summer and followed them to their show the next night. It was freakin' magical
The Dead (saw Further over the summer and confirmed the notion that Phil Lesh and Bob Weir are Gods), the Dirty Heads, Phish, The Dirtyheads, The Darkness, ACDC, CCR, Talking Heads, Bowling for Soup, The Black Keys, The Offspring, Bon Iver, Dayplayer, Fleet Foxes, Ramona Falls, Grimes, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, The Gorillaz, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Queen, Ratatat, Elvis, RJD2, Tgan and Sara, all bluegrass, any oldies, and much of the music from the 70s, 80s, and 90s.
I basically love almost all music.
Whatever there is to munch on, Fruits and veg, chicken and ribs, all Asian food, and salt. Anything that is free considering I cant cook.
Six things I could never do without
Trees or grass
Art and Found Objects
Music and Harry Potter
Oh! And coffee. My life blood.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Ganja and the money in my wallet
My friends
Getting organized
Work thats due too soon
Wondering why I procrastinate so much
The sleep I wish I was getting
Nature and how I can be in it
Found objects and what to do with them
On a typical Friday night I am
Either in the studio or out chillin' with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been arrested twice and accidentally shaved my eyebrows off in the fourth garde.
You should message me if
You wanna go hiking/camping, or to a show/festival, or want to learn how to weave, need a figure model (I'm always looking for more work), you are a harry potter fan and wanna shoot the shit, or actually want to go out some time
The two of us
