My self-summary

Reading a self summary is liking walking into a persons room. Wonderful for inferences and getting a general sense of them. However, this self summary is more like a hoarders basement that spans multiple floors with windy hallways. Apologies in advance.

I moved to LA a bit over a two years ago to continue doing film/video freelance directing (music videos, cool films/ads, documentaries, less cool but better paying corporate commercials, etc), which I've been doing full time for about five years, and I love it! I now live with a couple good friends who are a part of a production team I started. My room is essentially a hobbit hole and is possibly the coziest place ever, as proven by my cats favor.

Things I greatly care about: stories, music, film, art, video games, mythology, cuddling, writing, nature, philosophy, science-things, and creatures. I also spend a lot of time climbing (on and off), enjoying coffee houses, traveling, meeting interesting people, and thinking of/studying generally abnormal things. Reddit and I are good friends.

It took a number of years to really hammer out what attracts me in the deep, intrinsic ways, but I've discovered some! When someone knows the difference between beauty and basic physical attractiveness, and knows how to love as well as how to be loved; That can laugh with me at random cat/japanese/ridiculous videos and then go hiking/traveling and talk about the deeper things that make life awesome. I usually find myself most attracted to emotional people, but not weak ones. That, and awesome/weird hair colors (possible Ramona Flowers complex). I love people who have a deep love for comfortable warm silences, telling stories, laughing, being creative, and other people. If you do, you should let me know so I can bug you to hang out.

Also. I make pokemon jokes on a semi-regular basis, and this profile is horridly long.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying creating and moving towards bigger things. When I'm not working on projects, I tend to fill most of my time with books, films, climbing, games, and hanging out with friends that feel like family. I've been lucky enough to make a living doing what I love, and I'm pushing towards a place where eventually I can publish books and direct features.

I love stories and the elements you can weave together to tell them, and so I like learning about a broad spectrum of things. Writing's always been my first love, and film has always been fun and challenging because I get to mesh everything I love together (music, art, acting, cinematography, etc) into a strange and awesome medley that flows together. So, yeah, I'll probably be doing that for the rest of forever.
I’m really good at
Pokemon Snap. Massages. I openly welcome competition in either.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the orange cat hair that stands out unfortunately well on my largely black/earth toned wardrobe.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read a lot, and this list is going to be no where near complete. Let's see... Most things by Neil Gaiman, Ender's Game, LOTR/Hobbit, Harry Potter, NAME OF THE WIND (Soooo good, definitely message me if you've read this),Scott Pilgrim (Also so good!), Narnia, Prydain Chronicles, Lovecraft, Game of Thrones, Golden Compass series (His Dark Materials), Dune, House of Leaves, Hero with a Thousand Faces, Redwall, RA Salvitore, Neuromancer, Lloyd Alexander, lots and lots more. I really love Khalil Gibran, poetry like A Tree Telling of Orpheus, etc. I just finished reading Sandman, and it definitely joins the list.

Music would take much too long to list. I love music intensely, and listen to every genre but country. TODAY, as of writing this, I've been listening to Washed Out (kinda like Apparat mixed with ethereal vocals and Tycho) Alt J, and Austra (mix between Florence and the Machine and Marina and the Diamonds). I also love video game and soundtrack music. The silent hill soundtrack and I are good friends.

Movies (impossibly long list, just naming things as they come to mind): Spirited away (and all miyazaki films), Donnie Darko, LOTR, Pirates otc, Fight Club, Gangs of Newyork, Monty Python, Matrix, V, Crouching Tiger, Pan's Labyrinth, Starwars (old ones mostly), Perfume, Nightmare Before Christmas, Alien/s, Disney Animations, Stardust, Cowboy Bebop, Hook, a billion others. Bangarang.

Shows: Dr. Who, Firefly, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, adventure time, anime, tons more.

Food: I was a picky eater for a long time, but over the past few years I've branched out a whole lot. Sushi is incredible. The winner is still hibachi, but pizza and I have a long standing relationship.

Games: (How is there not a section for this?) Final Fantasies, Old school rpg's, Zelda, Mario kart, Smash Brothers (I will beat you at this :]), Halo, Portal, Braid, whatever is beautiful and has an excellent storyline or fun gameplay.
Six things I could never do without
Creative outlets and inputs. My computer and I hang out a lot.

Life Stimulation/challenging things.

Tools (Computer/Camera/Coffee)


Physical affection

Self awareness
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lots of things. The sort of life I'm living, as I'm the only one that gets to decide that.

Sex/physical affection (This does not mean I'm going to send a flurry of sexual innuendos and advances at you or immediately make out with your face. Just that I like these things.)

Where I could find a small loyal/furry companion to chill out in my pockets and hood. Maybe a small fennec fox with biggish ears. It could be wise, yet still playful. That would be good.

I had an hour long discussions today *Not today any more* about who would win between a jedi and a hogwarts wizard. It became very detailed and intricate.
On a typical Friday night I am
When you're freelance you kind of forget what day of the week it is. Or atleast I do and tell myself everyone else does... BUT probably either watching a movie/show, playing a game, hanging out with friends (often who are watching movies or playing games) and hearing people say things like "oh, man, I'm so happy it's Friday!"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sing along to Florence and the Machine, loudly, and you will not like it.
You should message me if
You are artistic, kind, loving, affectionate, geekish, and the sort of intentional open-minded that comes from deciding you care enough about people/life to really think deeply about things. That, or just a cool person that wants to say hello. Too many people are afraid of life. Stop it. Life is a Tardis, and there is much to explore.

I've found I'm pretty open to most things in the relational world so long as there's strong honesty, be that monogamy, open relationships, or friendships. Just being connected to awesome humans trumps everything else :]
The two of us
