My self-summary
Educated as an artist and designer, I did graphic design for many years until the soul crushing nature of corporate politics combined with the life draining ambience of working in a basement caused me to flee that scenario. I started a business and ran a very cool second hand and antiques store until it became clear that that wasn't the path for me either. So now we are back to square one, where I am figuring out how to support myself mostly doing art and other projects. I have two girls, great and brilliant kids that don't live with me, both in college currently.
What I’m doing with my life
Sorting out a studio so I can take care of some of these projects that are piling up. Trying to decide what path to choose for the next phase of my life. Relocation is an option at this point, so if you don't specifically live near me but you notice I have stalked your profile, you are probably somewhere I have considered moving to. Not next door or anything. OK I'm pretty sure I just creeped you right the hell out.
I’m really good at
Making you laugh. Taking the other side of an argument.
Rescuing crap from the dumpster and making it into something you want to put in your apartment. Keeping other people's pets entertained.
The first things people usually notice about me
They usually don't notice me at all. Then, when they finally do, they're all like, "Hey, who's that weirdo?" And I'm all like, "Who you callin' weird, you freak?" And then they're all like "Seriously, you're weird AND funny lookin'" and then I'm all like, "... uh...yeah, I guess I sort of am..."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music ... all the sub-genres of 'rock' are worthwhile ... then mix in a little of everything else ... I like to keep discovering new stuff and not stagnate. Beck, Jesca Hoop, Muse, Foo Fighters, Bent Knee, KT Tunstall, The Kinks, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jenny Lewis, Joe Strummer, Belly, Pomplamoose, OK Go, Tegan and Sara, Company of Thieves, The Weepies, Shins

I don't read much right now, trying to spend that time writing. I should say I love David Sedaris though, just to get in good with the 95% of ladies that are in love with him.

I don't know if I have a favorite food or type of food. Chicken whatever. Wings. New Haven Apizza. Cereal. I'm not a foodie, aside from pizza I generally will avoid cheese. Creatures with claws that walk around on the bottom of the sea seem to be allergic to me. Wine gives me heartburn, so I feel like that is a whole big thing I'm missing out on. Feel sorry for me if you'd like, I'll have a beer and deal.

Not really watching a lot of TV, but I probably watch more than I think I do.
Just watched Stranger Things but I haven't seen most of the event series everyone else seems to have binge watched without me. Any thrift/junk/antique based reality show. Portlandia, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Last Man on Earth, Family Guy, Master of None, Eastbound & Down, Portlandia, The Daily Show, Freaks and Geeks. Don't try and tear me away from March Madness.

Movies? Here's a smattering: Fight Club, Princess Bride, The Matrix, This Is Spinal Tap, Crumb, Lord of the Rings, Contact, Apollo 13, Midnight Run, Time Bandits, the Host, The Fall, City of Lost Children, Shawshank Redemption, Drugstore Cowboy, Iron Giant, Saving Private Ryan, Rushmore, The Station Agent, Fifth Element, the Prestige
The six things I could never do without
A scrap of paper to doodle on
Microwave Popcorn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why they don't ask me to list the 6 things I COULD do without...

Why do modern ignorant people insist on perpetuating myths that were invented by primitive ignorant people thousands of years ago.

Ways to make millions and millions of dollars if only I had a million dollars to start with.

The future of humanity, random stuff, life, the universe, everything...

Why is there a watermelon there?
On a typical Friday night I am
Oops. Am I supposed to have a Friday night routine? Working sometimes. But probably nothing this Friday, hit me up. Hey, it's almost as if I was keeping it open for whatever you wanted to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Is that there are private things I may never admit.
You should message me if
You want to buy me a cup of coffee, because I will totally let you if you ask nicely. Or, you're in the mood to have a drink and just talk about life, or art, music, or any random thing with a smart funny weirdo.

You have something fun you want to do, but can't seem to find anyone to do it with. BOWLING! THRIFT SHOPPING!!
