My self-summary
I wake up every morning surrounded by art stuffs and nerd paraphernalia, and that make me pretty damned happy. I have my passions and I have my fun. Fun: Karaoke, drink, dance, good times, etc. Passion: Art, books, and people. These things both intermingle and and inform each other (i.e. my social experiences inform my writing or painting experience and vice versa). I'm currently a work and school man, but I'm up for anything and into this whole "living" deal. On one hand, I can really dig sitting on the couch, watching Chinatown and passing out at 9:38, or I can catch Richard Hell and the Voidoids play at the Uptown and then dance to 8o's pop till 2:43 in the morning. What these tend to have in common is the brilliant people I go with or meet out. Rather it's 'The Q bar' in the Castro or 'Van Kliffs' in Oakland. I'm a social dude. I love people, even the ones I don't like. Still would love to travel every chance I get, but I like the idea of living in California for a long time. I dig it.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a painter/artist and an illustration major at SFSU. I love art and literature. I find myself at Amoeba, galleries/museums, Pegasus Books and the comic shop more often than not. Oh and film, but I alway wonder; who doesn't like movies? They can't exist, right?(Actually message me if you hate film. We probably won't get on that well, but I'd love see if you actually exist). I work in the city, pressing and shipping records, and I personally think that thats pretty awesome. I have made late nights and early mornings a bit of a habit, but I've been thinking about incorporating naps into my daily routine. I dig politics, but I really do need to know a person before I start running my suck.
I’m really good at
A lot. And if I suck at anything I compensate with extreme enthusiasm, at which point people tend to not notice how much I'm sucking.
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly, I'm not sure. Never asked. I've been told I have straight teeth by a stranger, once. (how's that?)

The six things I could never do without
Six things...
-Books
-Bed
-Food
-Friends
-A good movie every once and a while
-...A corporeal form... I'm a pretty simple guy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future and art.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to have a good time. Whatever that should be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a pretty open guy. I think something I might hesitate to tell someone is that I listen to books on tape. That's a weird me thing. I don't like wearing pants? It's not a big secret, but it's something.
You should message me if
...you'd like to get to know me a little better. I love meeting new people. People have the habit of being pretty brilliant.

Though smoochy time is awesome, I'm totally cool with the friendly, friend, network or whatever thing. You want to chill, party or talk about art I'm pretty down for all that jazz. You need someone to take you out dancing I fucking love dancing. Though smoochy time is awesome.
