I love sophisticated and intellectual ideas. Philosophy (though I hate the word philosophy), psychology, language, neuroscience, and anything I can pay attention to that I feel makes me grow. I love visual arts, martial arts, anatomy, the outdoors, nature, and animals. Dubbed 'beastmaster' as per my down-to-earthness with all creatures and Saint Francis for saving every bug out of swimming pools before I jump in. My sense of humor is occasionally dark but is more shaped by overthinking - if you can offend me, definitely message me- and I used to be one of the healthiest people you would've ever met until that got boring. I love sharing music. ♬

My sincere preference is to explore the greater meaningful feelings in life, about the cosmos, about existence, about consciousness, perspective, freedom, and what one may accomplish in life. This more often than not means getting away from all the noise of our culture. I actively enjoy avoiding the herd. Thinking about myself thinking about myself thinking about myself gets exhausting though, and a good remedy has always been walking into a modest movie theater, picking a movie I've never heard of based on the poster, and relaxing to watch in the cool dark. Don't ever see Meek's Cutoff. Most people know me for being a visual artist, being in super good shape, or being deep, but I'll refer to the idea of simply being an old soul.

I went to school to make graphics for video games- drawing, digital illustration, 2D & 3D animation, interface design, all that pretty stuff- however I honestly hate the idea of spending my life sitting in front of a screen.

"Believe in yourself, and create your own destiny. Don't fear failure."
What I’m doing with my life
Career-wise, nothing since having moved to CA. Between fine carpentry and shaking dust out of my clothes at the end of the day, finding random labor jobs, and now potentially graphics work for an app target audience of 6yr-old girls, I'm well off enough with things falling into my lap. As of this writing I need to illustrate a girly fox with semi-realistic eyes wearing makeup and not have it be the most horrifying thing you've ever seen.

I'm working on two different mobile games which have some financial potential, two labors of love I'm making entirely by myself (doing the art, animation, writing, design, coding, and music.)
My goal is to earn enough money and skills to escape the corruption of this culture. I do play the stock market. Teach me how to garden, and cook.

In terms of my life and not just my living:
Deliberately getting into positions to grow from my heart. I always love meeting new people and getting out of my own bubble; exploring the "inexaustible variety of life"- I like that.

Adventuring, & Learning to flourish in unpredictability
I’m really good at
Connecting complex elaborate and abstract ideas; drawing; martial arts and being physically strong; befriending animals; brain games; remembering my dreams; relaxing my mind in order to soak in and learn.
Getting people I barely know to open up and talk about their issues, aka listening. Everyone vents to me, which I enjoy.
The first things people usually notice about me
How calm I am. Calm enough to spare people my tendency to go into the deep end of a conversation within two minutes.

On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing, working on my game, hanging out with my cousin, making expeditions into my ideas, art, and/or the very nature of my mind. Once I'm an eleventy-billionaire I'll also be partying with my eleventy-billion genius-friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish I lived in a world where I actually needed to out-think other people as much as I feel I need to.

If you know right now that you can't hear my tone of voice, you can't make eye contact with me, you can't see my mannerisms and gestures and body language, you can't hear my intonation. That this text is static, and sterile, and that it's the same for everyone, and that communication here is being withered down to writing skills, barely. LOLOLOL; That an online profile is a pretty terrible representation of a person.

If you have a good proverb to send to me.
