My self-summary
I'm weird, in a good way. I'm looking for someone with compatible weirdness.

I'm a pretty mellow kind of guy who never misses an opportunity to crack a joke, often a bad pun. Comedy writing is a hobby of mine. My sense of humor is fairly dry. I'm pretty outgoing, but I can be shy too. I'm left-leaning, and I don't subscribe to any religion.

I'm a semi-professional artist, Photography mostly. I am taking the steps to make that be my full-time vocation. I have a couple sets of Portland and Oregon postcards I have made and sell, and a couple books out. I do commissioned photo work in portraiture, real estate and boudoir. I enjoy being influenced by all types of creativity. Three of the people I see as creative geniuses: Andy Goldsworthy, Banksy, Frank Zappa.

I love exploring new places, both in Portland and elsewhere. I really enjoy being out in nature, especially if there is an opportunity to see some wild animals.

My favorite flower is the bird of paradise, and I like the smell of old books and the sound of breaking glass.
What I’m doing with my life
Always creating.

Currently, I'm working on a new photography art project, and marketing the postcards I've done, as well as a greeting card I have out. I also do volunteer photography for nonprofits.

That, and remembering to take time to relax as well. Reading, spending time with friends, movies, going to see live music.
I’m really good at
Taking pictures, making people laugh, and putting the seat down.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes or my voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, To Kill a Mockingbird, Lord of the Flies, Dracula, The Hobbit, Childhood's End, Illusions, Johnny Got His Gun, Where the Wild Things Are, Rum Diaries, Junkie, Bluebeard, Grapes of Wrath, many more.

Movies: Spinal Tap, all Wes Anderson films, Dead Man, Cohen Brothers films, Star Wars New Hope, Idiocracy, Dazed & Confused, most Stanley Kubrick films, Neighbors (Aykroyd & Belushi), Best In Show, Dr. Strangelove, Glengarry Glen Ross, many more. I'm also a Marvel geek.

Music is very important to me. Way too many bands and artists to name. I love most all the genres, and sub genres of rock, I love R&B, jazz, hip-hop, classical, electronic, classic country. I like music with heart. My playlist can go from Mos Def to Tool to Aretha Franklin to Willie Nelson.

I like to discover cool music I've never heard before. Either new or classic stuff that's gotten past me.

TV: I don't watch much television, but some of my favorite shows are: Arrested Development, Barney Miller, Trailer Park Boys, Futurama, South Park, Legion, Adventure Time, & Community. I can't stand reality shows.

Food: Thai, Indian, BBQ, Chinese, Ethiopian, Mexican, Italian (hold the onions).
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creativity, my place in the universe, sex, human existence, humor, business, other people, pop culture, nature.
You know, the usual stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working, out with friends or hangin' at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I air-drum when I'm in a great mood.

That, and I can't grow a full beard.
You should message me if
You appreciate a guy who would make up a joke like this:

Why did Napoleon have his arm in a cast?

Because he had a bone apart.
