My self-summary
God is my foundation, and Jesus my salvation - that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. My relationship with him shapes all other aspects of my life. A native New Yorker who loves exploring, and an artist by passion and profession. I'm either a social introvert or pensive extrovert, so I just tend to ignore these labels anyway. Enjoy learning/teaching, and helping people out as best I can. Always got a hundred interesting ideas bouncing around in my brain, and trying my darndest to keep up.
What I’m doing with my life
Mainly growing my career in writing & illustration, through various art projects and networking. Comic conventions, sketching live events, inventing stories, drawing for short films, etc. Though my work schedule fluctuates, I regularly participate in church and community groups. Often go adventuring with my little nephew. Or take a good wander around the city, snapping photos all along the way.
I’m really good at
Being quasi-optimistic and creatively resourceful. Talking animatedly about things that excite me. Thoroughly thinking things through. Or easily succumbing to positive peer pressure, which is how I ended up on this site.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess my smile, when there's something to grin about. That I like to be friendly, find common ground, and give silly replies to rhetorical questions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading: Fairytales, fantasy, comics/graphic novels, interviews with creatives, unusual articles, art history, theologically-minded material, random recommendations. Taken in so many over the years, it's like choosing favorites amongst your children. But there's a special place in my heart for Howl's Moving Castle, Creature Tech, and Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians.

Watching: Humor, suspense, or their hilarious offspring in shows like Psych and Chuck. Romantic comedy, Asian dramas. Sci-fi, cartoons, combined in Futurama and Trigun. Studio Ghibli, Pixar, all that good stuff. Megamind may just be my favorite movie. Certain indie films or documentaries. And the crazy ones that turn your brain upside-down and twist it in a pretzel.

Listening: Mainly get hooked on songs more than bands, unless they're personal friends, but I try to discern my preferences. Lately replaying tunes by Matt&Kim, The Killers, One Republic, and Grouplove. Bastille's Pompeii, and Capital Cities music video of Safe and Sound. Somehow I've become enthusiastic about Foster the People, especially their Torches album.

Eating: Delicious new things. Pumpkin pie... pumpkin anything.
The six things I could never do without
1) Faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ. Thank God for that!
2) Caring family and friends. (Starting to sound like the Oscars.)
3) A good book, The Good Book, or story of some sort.
4) Pen or pencil. (Once I was stranded at a rest stop, and they only had tourist junk for sale. Even the cashiers lacked a simple pen. Finally had to beg one off a stranger.)
5) My digital camera. (Best purchase ever made, and attached at the wrist ever since. When that arbitrary shadow falls across the wall just so, and you're compelled to take a picture of it, several pictures of it... or maybe that's just me.)
6) You in my life. Haha, just kidding. Somehow I've managed to survive so far. But I'll keep a spot here for you, just in case.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the heck God might be doing with my life. And elsewhere.
On a typical Friday night I am
Assisting & sketching for this amazing local theater group. Making comics at my favorite comic shop. Going to a gallery exhibit or music show for someone I know. Karaoke til after midnight. Chillin at home with Netflix and online manga. Or adjusting my OKC profile yet again. Going on a date, if you ask nicely?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There seems to be a direct correlation between my room and my brain. At times they're both tidy & functioning smoothly. Others, I'm eyeing a pile of clutter as it teeters on the edge of collapse... usually when there's a deadline at hand!
You should message me if
We're stunningly compatible by OKC's standards, and you want to converse. Or perhaps we're dating enemies but we'd make nifty friends - just don't expect anything more. While I'd be glad to grab beers and discuss the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything (spoiler: it's 42), when it comes to romance... a significant other must share in what matters most.

You've actually read my profile/questions and mention a point of interest, rather than cookie-cutter comments. (Tip: If you tell me "you are hot" I will be temped to reply with "you are not." But I will ignore you.) Even "how are you" can be said to anyone. What intrigued you enough to reach out?
