My self-summary
Just moved to Amherst. Lookin for new friends.
To start off, I have Fibromyalgia. Don't treat me like I'm retarded, crippled or lesser human being (it happens a lot on here lol). All it means is I'm in pain 90% of my life.... Now that it's out of the way.................

Get your reading glasses on!

*I'm a pet dad (I take in rescued animals. Mostly reptiles). My cat and bearded dragon Don (AKA Lizard Man), are my family. I'm a bit of a foodie. I will eat anything at least three times. I'm into quite a bit: skateboarding, painting, cooking, hiking, fishing, camping, movies, photography, music, writing music, etc...... I like to do a little of everything, spread my skills out rather than be good at one thing. I went to school for Art, Geology/Paleontology, biology and Cryptozoology on the side. I have a huge movie and music collection as well (I'm a "media snob"). I may not like your music but I have tons of music I do like. I like to be as active as possible and will gladly be game for anything out of the house.

Some times I would like someone to be lazy with someone. Someone who will turn my computer off when I'm not getting paid for the work I'm doing. I tend to be a workaholic. Constantly trying to top my past projects.

*-I haven't dated in two years, so i'm a tad rusty. Not too great at flirtin. But I'm game to take another whack at it!
What I’m doing with my life
Since one of my good friends passed, i've been focused on trying to have as much fun as possible (it was one of his wishes). Socializing and adventuring as much as possible.

(https://www.facebook.com/xCouchphotox) you can also fallow me on Instagram "Couch_photography"

I've done a lot already... But, I'm a band/wedding/event photographer. Magazines/papers/promos for bands and etc. I like what I do. What's not to love about meeting famous bands and such.

I help raise awareness for Fibromyalgia. Remember that ice bucket challenge thing? Yeah, well Fibro is in that same family of disease. I find it fulfilling to help people that have no one else who understands what they are going through.
I have a Facebook nonprofit (www.facebook.com/doomforfibro)

I also just started selling Zilla/Zoo med as well as selling art and promoting shows.

I'm a crazy social person. Iike meeting new people.
I’m really good at
I pride my self on my knowledge about movies and music. I'm like a media historian. I know more about animals and dinosaurs than the average joe....

According to my friends: Cooking, photography, memorizing weird facts no one really needs to know. I seem to be someone who attracts others in my trades, or, if someone cant remember something media based :p

I'm not really sure, I don't really think about myself too much.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically? Unfortunately my piercings and tattoos. Maybe my walk.... I kinda limp sometimes (metal plate in my leg). I have no idea, no one tells me this kinda schtuff

I'm a talker. That's pretty noticeable .............

"I recognize you from shows" is the number 1 thing (if i had a dollar for every time i got that message).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There a quite a few things i like:

MOVIES: I loooooove Cary Grant and Frank Morgan movies. I suppose i watch horror movies mostly (dead alive, sleepy hallow, hellraiser, pumkinhead. I recently saw Odd Thomas, loved it) . I do love the weird imaginative type movies like Labyrinth or The Dark Crystal. I watch a lot of TCM so, you can imagine I love old black and white movies, especially 50s-80s monster movies (i such as the Seventh voyage of sinbad)..... I obviously watch A LOT of movies so I'd like to meet some one with the same obsession obsession.

CARTOONS: I collect old cartoons.... i have a huge collection that is always growing. anything from 1920- 1995, old cartoons!!! i have a huge cartoon and anime collection on my computer....my fav cartoons at the moment are freakazoid, swat cats, pirates of dark water, courage the cowardly dog, scooby doo (i have all the spin offs and episodes and seasons), looney tunes, mgm cartoons, funky phantom.... i do like some anime, my fave anime is Lupin the third, Big O, the Miyazaki movie collection, cowboy bebop, ronin warriors and so on

TV: Xfiles is my all time fav show.. i like the history channel, discovery, turner classic movies, cartoon network, the travel channel, the food network, and animal planet, i really don't watch anything else. unless its boomarang... I've been watching Sleepy Hollow, Bonanza, The Mentalist and Bones. Recently, i've been waiting for the second season of the Strain.

MUSIC: My fav bands in the world right now is Ogre you asshole, gorilla biscuits (still, after so many years), Pretend, the littlest viking, Toe, king crimson, t rex, talking heads, Uriah heep, 8otto, Doom riders, deathside, giraffes giraffes, Pomagranate Tiger, Lite, Mudy over the Sakuban, Rega, the hives, negative approach, TSOL, dead boys, the freeze, the zero boys, the minutemen. Its hard to refrain from putting way more down, i have such a huge music collection, i guarantee i can show anyone at least 30 bands that you have never even heard of.

GAMES: i own NES, Gamecube, Xbox, SEGA, N64, and an Atari. I really enjoy games with monsters or scary situations. Games such as Bioshock, Arkham Asylum, Guitar Hero, Thief, Deadspace3 halo, Resident Evil, Borderlands, Castlevania, Gears of war, etc... Basically games that are fairly far from reality or Co-Op. Older games: i like sonic the hedgehog, mickeys world of illusion, lost vikings...any zelda game accept the windwaker games. Metroid Prime, Onimusha..... etc

BOOKS: Kitchen Confidential, Cary Grant biography. Any book about scary stories, dinosaurs, books about sharks or other animals. I love reading about recent sightings of cryptids. I have been reading a lot of Lovecraft lately. I'm really into monsters, "gods" and crazy stuff like that.

And yes I like way more than what i typed up here.
The six things I could never do without
Media: music/ movies (my ipod)

My pets (cat and a bearded dragon)

Adventuous food (especially pho)

Adventure! Culture! People! Trying new things

My camera

Obtaining more knowledge. Learning about everything.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to keep my business going. Figuring out how to be social outside of shows. Work work work work.......

What can I do with my day.

and.... Big ol butts... idk >_> Who thinks about the same thing every day?
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely working a show, stuck at home editing, out enjoying a beer, or maybe a movie. I don't have a typical Friday, but, I'm down for what ever. I usually spend my week ends in the Northampton area.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
*I listen to a LOT of Japanese Indie/ Punk/ Math...
*I watch the animated version of the Hobbit 4 times a week.
* i own every Disney classic on VHS
I'm not really afraid of being open at all. I'm not really embarrassed about anything
You should message me if
some things peek my interest.

- If you have a Bearded Dragon
- If you want to drink tea and watch Sleepy Hollow
- If you want to play some co-op xbox/snes/nes/sega.
- If you're down for random adventures.
- if you want movie marathons.
- If you like, and or, understand prog/math music.
- If you live in Boston or NY. Would be cool to have someone to hang with when i have photo shoots out there!
- If you like fancy beers and aren't a complete train-wreck (for once that would be nice >_>)
- If you are a fellow photographer and enjoy hiking with a camera!!!!

(Too many photos of shooting guns/holding a fish, pics of your kids on a dating site full of creeps, nudes, vintage bikes, photos of being on a mountain or drinking a tub of booze. It's like 5 women were cloned and all of them are on Okcupid -_-

I like ducks... But Duck-face.... F*ck no

°I HATE SPORTS! Sorry...
°I like to start off as friends first. So if you feel friend zoned the first time hanging out, it won't mean that you are being zoned
°No mom's, sorry, I'm just not good with kids.)
°if you are rude or ignore me on here, I will completely ignore you in person. Tired of women changing their minds after they see me in person
