My self-summary
Orphaned at a young age, I was raised by a pack of rogue malamutes. Living a feral existence in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin, I barely advanced to one rung in the evolutionary ladder. I've been called an obnoxious, narcissistic punk by my Rabbi. After spending some time in a Turkish prison, I was released on good behavior. Despite being determined to turn my life around, my goal of being Aurora's Highest Paid Lapdancer ended when I slipped a disc. Realizing that I couldn't bump-n-grind-n-twerk, I turned to art. After being discovered as a highly touted chalk outliner for the police, I was hired to draw ALL the penis artwork for the 2007 comedy SUPERBAD. I've been married twelve times fathered nineteen children (mostly in Utah) and . . . wait . . .

...sorry. Let's try this again...

Thanks for checking out my profile. Army Veteran, VERY patriotic, old fashioned in some ways. Being the creative type, I am often misunderstood and sadly, there are those who actually believe that they know me well...but they're mistaken.

For instance, it's true that I'm a "big kid", but that doesn't mean that cannot "adult" nor does it mean that I lack maturity. I'm unapologetically sensitive and affectionate, but that doesn't mean that I'm emotionally weak or clingy. It's also true that I have ADHD, but I never use that as an excuse for any situation.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working on my dream(s):

I've wasted WAY too many years with a "I'll do it tomorrow" attitude, and I'm not satisfied with my primary source of income. I find my job at Nicor Gas both non-stimulating and uninteresting. Instead of whining about it, I'm currently working on a very involved, very detailed plan of becoming a professional cartoonist. I have several projects on paper: cartoon characters that will be made into merchandising, a comic strip idea that may grow into a graphic novel, my own HOW-TO-DRAW-CARTOONS book/lesson plans, and an autobiographical graphic novel.

In the meantime, I've let myself go WAY too long (like my hair) and I'm planning to return to the gym. In addition, I enjoy singing in a church band from time to time and doing karaoke on Friday nights.
I’m really good at
-Singing (VERY well, in fact)
-Drawing/cartooning
-Listening
-Being opinionated (yet still respectful of other's opinions)
-Entertaining people with my sense of humor
-Entertaining kids (kids LOVE me)
The first things people usually notice about me
-My green eyes
-My singing ability
-My drawing skills
-My ability to entertain or annoy (depending on who you ask)
-(According to a number of ladies) My butt. (Ummm, okay.)

No, I do not care if you DO....but I'll tease you about it. :D

When I'm at the drawing board, I LOVE listening to SCHULZ AND PEANUTS: A BIOGRAPHY by David Michaelis

Favorite food: Mom's home cooking (Mexican style). I'd like to try different foods out there despite being a somewhat picky eater. I DO have a weakness for pizza and Welch's Sparkling Grape Juice.
The six things I could never do without
My God-given drawing talent
My singing ability
COFFEE!
Cartoons/cartooning
My iMac & PC
My Christian Faith
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. I DO want to become a husband AND father (in that order).
I do wonder what life would be like as both.

I'm constantly daydreaming. Mostly about cartoons, comics, ideas/gags/stories for my comic strips.

WHO has time to make up all of these fake profiles on OKC? Bizarre.
On a typical Friday night I am
...depending on the Friday, I am either:
-at the drawing board honing my God-given drawing skills
-doing homework assignments
-giving in to my addiction to Facebook
-going to see a movie
-going to a karaoke bar
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I "SpongeBob'ed" the hell out of my bathroom. No joke. I have pics so it DID happen.

Yes... I'm 43 years old and I STILL participate in heavy metal mosh pits which also include crowd surfing and "The Wall Of Death".
You should message me if
...YOU ARE A NON-SMOKER. I quit smoking in 2004 and I CANNOT stand the smell of it.
...YOU are of the Christian faith. I cannot date someone who is of a different religious faith, agnostic, or atheist, it would not work out.
-You can tolerate my sense of humor and don't get easily offended.
-You're honest. I DESPISE lying and dishonest.
-You find cartoonists intriguing. (Hey, it's worth a shot...)

Don't be shy, send a message.
