My self-summary
I've learned that specific questions force people to admit to things while general questions allow one to omit things. are you really going to get to know me by reading a random blurb about me? probably not. would checking out my interests help? getting warmer. but with the ever changing nature of any individual will this summary speak for me tomorrow? is this even a self summary?
i suppose i like to question authority, even the authority of a little white box on the world wide etherwebs.

I am a passionate creative guy, with many varied interests. I truly enjoy games, books, movies, music, hell most forms of entertainment really.

I am passionate, intelligent, and absurdist
What I’m doing with my life
looking for the right light to steal away, and lock in a cage of 0s and 1s

Which is to say: I take pictures. And video. And the occasional roll of 16mm. I work full time doing video production and I work as a freelance photographer on weekends. And then there are short films, music videos and all sorts of fun times.
I love my field, and can hardly believe that people actually pay me to do things that I do for fun.
Lately i've been working more and more often as a cinematographer/director of photography, and i love the work. So much more thinking then normal. I never knew that mental labor could wear me out more then physical.
I’m really good at
Expressing myself verbally, even though my brain presents me with at least 5 gutter level comments every conversation.
I'm pretty good at making computers work, although I am by no means an expert. I know more then most about cameras, but there is oh so much to learn.
Also: snowboarding! I love snow sports, been skiing since I was 7 years old, boarding for about 14 years now, and have had some wonderful adventures in the mountains. So far I've ridden in 6 states, but I will eventually hit every one with mountains. I'm also quite good at relaxing. Putting on a pot of tea, curling up with a good book, and letting the hours melt away.
The first things people usually notice about me
my hair, eyes, height, voice. one of those, definitely.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books- stranger in a strange land - heinlen, anything by the eminent Dr. gonzo (Hunter S), Survivor, any Vonnegut, ive been reading alot about the flower children, the beat generation, and the end of the world for various projects im working on, go figure.

movies- anything that makes me think. fight club, pi, dr. strangelove, SLC Punk, everything is illuminated, Sunshine, the usual suspects, the big lebowski (really any cohen brothers), etc etc

music- damn near anything. jazz, rock, indy, punk, blues, with a dash of hip hop, metal, country/folk and classical thrown in there for color.
Six things I could never do without
movies, music, my camera, food, friends, and a cold beer on a hot summer day, or a cold winter day, while while being pulled on by gravity, wishing strongly that the trees wizzing by me will not provide a sudden stop.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
designs for things, be it stories or physical spaces. textures and light. silly nonsense.
composition. rule of 1/3's. negative space. form and flow. Recently i've been thinking about eye lines and jawlines in portraiture.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing something atypical. or watching a movie, or shooting a movie. I've been doing lots of event photography on weekends lately, so I could also be at a club shooting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i frequently approach a difficult situation with sideways logic. i prefer to win arguments with absurdity. giving cryptic answers to specific questions, and vice versa. Also I'm an introvert hiding behind an extrovert's vocal chords. What I mean by that is that people who don't know me frequently find me strong, opinionated and vocal, while my inner doubts sit waiting in the wings.
You should message me if
you think you may be compatibly nutty, especially if you are a strong, independent woman, with a sense of humor. If you have a creative side, intelligence, opinions, and a strong will.
The two of us
