My self-summary
If you're not certain I'm dating material but dig what you read, hit me up anyway. I'm always into meeting new folks and chatting it up a bit; no expectations.

Most of my buds would likely describe me as a friendly, intelligent, compassionate, logical, altruistic guy with a twisted sense of humor and a kind heart. Actually, my friends have never said a word of that, but they would if I paid them first.

I'm an open-book. There's not much I've done in life that I'd consider private. I can keep a secret as a favor to a friend, but I pride myself on honesty otherwise. What's the saying? "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything". Thanks, Mark Twain.

I was born and raised in Portland. I spent a couple of years living in New Jersey but life over there was too fast-paced for me so I moved back to Portland for a while. As I got a little older, even Portland was getting to be a tad too hectic. In the hopes of rekindling a relationship, I moved to Coos Bay. The relationship didn't work out in the long-run, but I enjoy the area so much, I'm still hanging around.

Much like any other Oregonian, I like the outdoors. Every now-and-again I like to escape out to the woods and go for nature hikes or go poking around open pastures and fields for... goodies? Ha. I'm not a big fan of fishing, but camping, boating, and rafting are fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I'm approaching my two-year at FCR, a call-center in town. It's not what I imagine doing in the long-run, but it works until I can use my experience here to move onto something a bit more rewarding or lucrative.

Eventually, I'd like to find a repair or networking position with a small IT-based company, but I may need to go back to college for a few years before that becomes a reality. In the interim, I have a history of working high-end tech retail and retail in general.

Otherwise, I'm just trying to make friendly with a few people around town. I don't have many friends around here. I've noticed since I moved from Portland, people in the Coos are relatively untrustworthy of outsiders, so it's a challenge finding dependable folks that aren't only down to chill when free drink or smoke are offered.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at just about anything creative shy of painting. Everything from sketch art to photoshop, video editing, and audio production. I used to spend a lot of time creating and programming 2D video games, but it requires a LOT of freetime I haven't had recently.

When I'm bored, I usually take a pencil to paper and draw out ludacris cartoons and laugh to myself; In retrospect, that sounds a little crazy. I guess I'm not a bad artist in general; I used to draw a lot of comic-style art and I can still pull off realism, but I tend to stick to work that I can start and end quickly. That's probably why I have no patience for painting.

I'm also a pretty amazing cook, I can make some awesome mixed drinks, and I'm a moderately-decent handy-man.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually notice my height or my voice first. I kinda come off as intimidating on first impression, but that's not my personality at all. I'm kind of a mix between computer nerd, artsy-fartsy-type, and 1990's surfer dude.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm odd about reading. Hand me a technical manual on a topic I'm interested in and I'll read it cover to cover, but pass me non-fiction and I'll pass it back. I read books to learn; I don't read as a form of entertainment.

I just finished a book about creating and querying SQL databases. T'was a riveting work of literary achievement. So enthralling, I built a webpage that could query values from a MySQL database. lol.

My favorite movies are usually comedy and horror flicks. Listing titles is a little futile because my favorite movies seem to change pretty drastically from month to month, but here's my "now" list:
HellRaiser II
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey
Mall Rats
A Nightmare on Elmstreet
The Hangover
How High
The HBO Spawn series

I watch a lot of documentaries, too. I particularly like science and social documentaries, but I'll watch nearly anything.

Musically, I'm a little eclectic. Lately I've been listening to a lot of rap like Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko, A Tribe Call Quest, and Outkast.
I listen to a lot of metal music, too. Stuff like Opeth, Tristania, Cannibal Corpse, Type O Negative, early Manson, and some Iced Earth.
Industrial such as Ministry, A Perfect Circle, old Nine Inch Nails, Mindless Self-Indulgence, and White Zombie.
90's alternative like OLD Greenday, Bush, Silverchair, Soundgarden, and Stone Temple Pilots.
Every once and again I'll listen to techno, nerdcore, video game remixes, 80's rock, 80's synthpop, remixes, or once in a blue-moon, story-driven country. I have to admit a certain respect for Johnny Cash.

I love Mexican food, but where food is concerned, I'll try anything once. I don't eat out a lot, but when I do and I find something I like, I usually figure out some way to emulate it at home and before long, my cooking becomes my favorite whatever-it-is. I can make some killer hamburgers like woah.
Six things I could never do without
1.) Dark and sarcastic humor.
2.) Some kind of creative outlet.
3.) Friends and chill sessions.
4.) Cuddling.
5.) Music.
6.) A vice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about friends, my past, any one of the slew of art projects I'm tackling at any given time, or just my general situation. I'm also a bit of an over-planner and I tend to organize my day in my head quite a bit.

Whenever I'm stressed, I sit down and doodle or screw off in photoshop. It works, and soon enough I'm easy like Sunday morning.
On a typical Friday night I am
That's iffy. I could be at work, or I could be doing my damndest to hit a bar or get a few friends together for a chill session. That doesn't always work out, so I guess the honest answer is working or staying at home and surfing the internet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sleep in the buff? Yeah, not horribly interesting.
You should message me if
-You've read through my profile and want to know more.
-You and I seem to have a lot in common.
-You're down for some actual conversation.

You should avoid messaging me if:
-You think I'm cute, but my profile is just too damn long to read.
-You're too desperate or lonely to play friendly with me at first.
The two of us
