I could rattle off several more tag lines about myself, but it boils down to: "I play nice with others, unless you're an asshole."
I'm an artist, so my apartment is only ever terrifyingly messy or neurotically clean, sleep is always optional, and I have a love-hate relationship with cigarettes. My practice is primarily drawing, painting, collage, crafting and accessory design, writing, and performance art. I graduated in the spring with my BFA from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago.
I'm planning on staying at SAIC to pursue my Masters of Arts in Art Therapy, but I'm taking a gap year for self growth, field experience and volunteer hours, internships, getting into some gallery shows, writing a book, writing and performing my stand-up material, and all-around soul-searching. It's gonna be a wild and wonderful year.
Let's get rowdy, folks.
Look, I'm not /saying/ that I'm Batman.... I'm just saying that no one has ever seen me and Batman in the same room at the same time.
Also: everything else. Ever.
Also also: I give myself an A+ in watching netflix and napping.

I've seen a lot of good TV, but I don't care enough to list it all. Typically, when people ask me what my favorite TV Show is, I respond with, "The 2009 Battlestar Galactica reboot," (which is always quickly followed up with, "but it's way better than any show called 'Battlestar Galactica' has any right to be"). If you are a fellow Battlestar enthusiast and want to geek out about it for hours, we will be friends.
Thai, Japanese, Greek, Italian, and anything with cheese, as cliche as that sounds, but there are just some things we cannot live without.
Music isn't even worth trying to type out. Like.... my fingers might break before I was done. Just ask me.

One time I broke into a construction site when I was drunk at 2 AM in Florida.
Sometimes I get nervous on airplanes.
(So many bonus points if you just read that in John Mulaney's voice.)
You want to dismantle the patriarchy together.
You want to smoke a cigar with me.
You can teach me how to play the BSG board game.
You won't judge my woeful incompetence with technology.
You are okay with the fact that sometimes I run 10-15 minutes behind schedule (a bad habit I've picked up from years of attending art school).
You are in general a kind, understanding, open-minded person with a thirst for adventure, finding your place in the world, and a yearning for personal growth and social progress.
I don't respond to "heyyy your hot gurl," "wats up," or "hey im Kevin lets get drinks," so I wouldn't bother, Kevin.
Couples: stop asking if i'll have threesomes with you! That's not what pansexual means (it means I only want to have sex with pans, duh).
