My self-summary
*(I DO NOT see "likes," so just shoot me a message.)*

Somewhere between an intellectual and a bizarrely intelligent, compassionate primitive. I am very enthusiastic about the things I do and the things you do.

I enjoy sharp whit and rugged exercise, and deeply intelligent ladies who like sharp men who like rugged exercise.

Professional comic artist, former boxer, self-published novelist with a degree in Fine Arts, kind of a casual absurdist. Also, now working to help special needs kids with their physical health and communication skills.

Playful, very physical, yet extremely considerate. I vacillate between intense thoughtfulness and utter silliness.

I am bold, quick-witted, and very kind.
What I’m doing with my life
I work with kids on the autism spectrum by day, and I draw freelance comics by night. For the most part, I love my comics career. I get to tell strange stories with strange illustrations. Currently writing vast works of graphic fiction for future projects and enjoying the way it's all coming together.

I still box for fun whenever possible, but rarely do 10 round sparring sessions anymore, as my vanity won't allow for a broken nose. Frankly, I was lucky to make it through that part of my life without coming out of it looking different.

I take breaks frequently from painting, often with the sudden desire to be among people, or to work out. Also, making failing-but-admirable strides to correct my sleeping schedule instead of working on an illustration-or writing- til 2 a.m.
I’m really good at
Analysis, humorous introspection, drawing, writing, athletic play, boxing, challenging the flawed logic behind the Met closing at 5:30.

being witty while maintaining conversational focus, being totally comfortable with other people's emotions.

It has also occurred to me recently that I have really good taste in friends. Every person who has gone the distance with me socially is a truly good and loving person- and if someone isn't, they simply fade back into anonymity.

The first things people usually notice about me
Phenotype of old-timey strongman, sans handlebar mustache.

I just broke the touch barrier in a pleasant way.
I'm riding a horse.

The six things I could never do without
pencils, the joy of seeing another human face, books- some with pretty pictures, boxing gloves, banter, James Horner's "Ride Of The Firemares"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My own fictional characters, how to circumvent the wild inconsistency of the G train, other people's books, the sociology and biology of gender, the anarchist politics of 1930's Superman.

How can I cultivate a mystery that people will whisper about at my funeral? How can I soften my enthusiasm when speaking to you, so that my rapidity of thought is endearing and not cartoonish? Should I exercise outside in spite of the heat? Yes I should. I need to own a dog so I can name it Charlemagne, but would the nominative predetermination make him/her anxious? Where will the revolution start, and who are the key players?
On a typical Friday night I am
Staying out later than I intended, sometimes due to invitations from friends, other times due to a looming sense that my youth will be wasted if I go home to draw or write something instead. I often go home and work anyways, hence being up til 2 a.m. There's also a good chance I'm doing pull-ups at a local park.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I'm comfortable, I can be obnoxiously sweet. Like, so sweet that you'll want to punch me.

In social gatherings, I am always well-liked, and always slightly out of place.
You should message me if
If you feel compelled to do so, if you find yourself intrigued or delighted by the idea of a conspicuously male person in remarkably good health and temperament,
if you would like to teach me something.

... OR if you want to hear a true story about how I once pulled a woman from the train tracks!

If you are uncommonly decent and indecently desirous.
