My self-summary
*Updated as of April 27, 2016*

I like art in pretty much every form, and I long to be involved in a creative field as my main occupation.
I love to travel, and don't do nearly enough of it. But that's everyone, right? Been to Ireland, France (kinda), Switzerland, Italy, Japan, Hawaii.

I don't know what else to write here since everything fits elsewhere in this profile, and I keep changing it anyway.
What I’m doing with my life
Working
Watching
Reading
Drawing

I hope to one day reverse this order, or at least combine the first and last into one activity.
I spend a lot of time discussing cartoons on twitter. Because I am an adult.
I've recently fallen in love with The Metrograph theater, and go every chance I get (once a week). I'm a bad cinephile

I drive a Vespa scooter, that is slowly falling apart.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating
Empathizing
Cartoons, I guess? I'm trying.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is it summer? Farmer tan
Is it winter? Messy mop of curly hair
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Vonnegut and Hesse would top the list. I don't read as much as I used to, but I still try. Recently enjoyed Neuromancer and Metamorphosis

I spend a lot of time thinking about

And, how to translate motion into drawings.
On a typical Friday night I am
I work on weekends. But, I've been hanging around in the city on days off (Monday and Wednesday).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do most of my drawing on the back of receipt paper while I'm at work. This annoys my boss sometimes.
You should message me if
You are a creative person, or have a passion for some sort of art form, and want to talk about it.
You want to play board games with me and all the lovely people I know.
