My self-summary
Thank you in advance for reading this sentence. At the extreme basic level I am 7 billion billions billion (27 zeroes) atoms, same as you, with each atom having its own backstory, how we all do. On a more complicated level I am a exothermic chemical reaction who is curious to see if there's someone out there I'll react with.
What I’m doing with my life
Being the best me I can be.

I work a day job. Other times I photograph concerts, musicians, and models. Often edit my photography to various music consisting of a mix of bands of all sorts of genres.

In my spare time I read, that's something we totally have in common for you're reading this right now, we should hang out. I nap. Reading and napping are fun to do, what I'm reading these days is pretty technical, but I do have some fun ones set aside for later.

I'll take a roadtrip at the drop of a hat.
I’m really good at
Networking and being a catalyst, driving long distances, photography, historical tidbits, quotes, trivia, explaining complicated things simply, and living the dream.

If you're happy, you're successful. I have my career. I have accomplished a lot of what I didn't expect to do with my life.

I like to play matchmaker with my friends and acquaintances. I've met a lot of people in my circles and although someone may not be suited to my tastes more often than not I know someone they'll click with. I have introduced quite a few couples who have passed their one year mark.
The first things people usually notice about me
I hear that I'm tall, thin, and fit. I've been complimented on my cheekbones and jawline. I have deep dark brown eyes, long brown hair which I usually keep in a ponytail, and a thick beard.

People around me are usually smiling and laughing, which makes sense because I like to be happy and to see people around me happy. My friends will come to me if they have questions about how something works or the history of this or that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Let's talk local music sometime, I'm a fan of American Routes and the premise behind it, I enjoy finding connections of what song lead to what or who influenced who when what instrument came out. Movies I am critical of, since I have worked as stills photographer on only a few movie sets so I am good at spotting inconsistencies and plot holes, and even better at not pointing them out during the movie.
Books, I like the quote "I'd rather read the worst book than watch the best movie. I keep up on socioeconomics, astronomy, wold news and history, but not sports.

Thompson, Greek Historical Thought, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (awful movie, great series of books), Brave New World, Animal Farm, A Farewell To Arms (one of my all time favorite), The Golden Ratio, Shakespeare (I studied Shakespearology in college), random short sci-fi stories, the Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia, Reddit, and IMDB. Also it's always wonderful to hear someone say "the book was better."

(F) Sports: I have no interest in sports. "Get the ball! Get The Ball! GET THE BALL! Did you see him get that ball!"
Six things I could never do without
1. Light, directly or indirectly. When you look at a bonfire, all the light was once in the sun.
2. Car
3. Camera
4. Mac Computer, to edit my work, and communicate.
5. Music, and silence. What do you think is the purpose for music?
6. iPhone 5s, I'm textually active.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, and everything.

History, science, physics.

How I can better myself and the people around me.

Lighting, poses, hairstyles, makeup, and digital editing techniques.

Music theory and history. Obscure bands and songs that shaped what we hear today.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a concert, on a photoshoot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have almost been killed by a kiss due to my peanut allergy.

I'm deathly allergic to all nuts and all seafood. So I'm not all that adventurous with eating, the wrong food for me can have life threatening consequences. I've chosen to have a vasectomy mainly because of this food allergy.

On the supernatural note, I do not believe in ghosts or gods.
You should message me if
You are a sleek lady who is low maintenance, loves the arts, is comfortable with her body, looks to the bright side of life, and is not afraid to swear. Someone too pretty to play the blues. Eyes that say "Don't try to tame me", a body that whispers "Talk me out of these clothes", and a mouth that hardly ever says "I've got drama!"

A fun date would be to both take cameras, shoot the same things and see what different perspectives we have.

In conclusion, if you want to smile and sigh, message me.

A side note. I'm always looking to collaborate on photoshoots. If you are competent with a camera, lights, hair, or makeup; we could work together. I do not date coworkers.
The two of us
