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.
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.
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).
You know, the usual stuff.
That, and I can't grow a full beard.
Why did Napoleon have his arm in a cast?
Because he had a bone apart.
